tea and azaleas

Once in a while I get a day I like to call my perfect weather day. A mix of sun and clouds with a cool crisp breeze. I'm more of a cool rather than warm weather person. Probably because we get long unbearable 100+ days as early as May going all the way into September. I think a little cloud cover makes all the colors pop and there's just something magical to me about sunlight peeking behind gray skies. Having spent the last couple of days preoccupied with cars needing repair and getting my son ready for a regional science fair I finally allowed myself a little time to play.

It started with an innocent cupcake. I had planned to share just a few pictures of my cupcake and a handful of pink things. Well once I realized the weather was MY perfect weather I couldn't resist.




I found a trail of bright pink azaleas so I ran in and grabbed my sparkly pink slides (fabulous thrift shop find for $2.98) and matching bright azalea tights.


It was such a lovely, lovely day I brought my cupcake outside and indulged in a garden tea.


I picked up this vintage cotton canvas rose covered shower curtain about 17 years ago! I love using it as a table cover. Aren't the azaleas yummy?

Happy Pink!
