Let's enjoy some tea, along with a cup of tea, while it's still nice on my patio. The fold-up tiered stand is one that I found at a thrift store for less than a dollar because it was broken. My son put some glue on it and it was as good as new.
I'm using one of my late, Great Aunt Kitty's teacups that she painted for me.
This sweet girl still likes to come over after school one day a week to bake together. She is a great little baker and put together the Congo Bars in no time!
While the Congo Bars were baking, my son, Mike, had a stencil ready that he had carefully made, with a design and word of Cissy's choosing. They had designed this the week before. She carefully and patiently filled in the heart by dabbing a sponge brush so that no pink was visible. It turned out cute, didn't it? Mike has found that using regular acrylic paint in a tube works well on fabric and doesn't wash out.
I was able to take out sweet Ella on a birthday dinner date, to celebrate her 7th birthday!!
