Oh my stars!! Evy looks A-dorable in her white hat sipping tea like a lovely young lady! I love it! And her summer coverlet is so pretty. I have a chenille one that is soooo similar to this one...same colors and all. I haven't had the chance to use it yet though...


Hi Allie! So glad to see ya back! Your sweet girl looks adorable. You both look like you are having fun baking together. We all fall off the blog wagon sometimes....I know I do! Taking breaks is demands it. xoxo, cherry


how fun!!! Tea parties are the best! Looks like all who attended had an absolutely lovely time! :)


Great to see you blogging again and with such delightful posts, I mean fairy cakes and tea parties who could ask for anything better?


Evy looks like she is having a wonderful time! Her summer bedding is beautiful.


That has to be one of the sweetest tea party picnics I've ever seen! How delightful!



What a darling tea party.

I am so glad to see that you are back. Before I even knew what a blog was I stumbled upon yours. I loved what I saw and have since become hooked. Even got the courage to start my own. I was a little worried about you when you weren't posting. Your posts are lovely and it is such a pleasure to see you back again.


I love chenille cozy!
And it looks like there is a pink chenille doll too.
Very pretty bed!


Evy is sooo cute having her tea!
Love the bedspread Allison.
I tried to email you again and it bounced back.
Just wondering if you got the last one?
Email me when you can, so I can ask you one more thing.


Hi again Allie,
Email me, because mine bounced back again.

oh what sweet memories you are making! LOVE the bedspread!


Hi again Allie,
Just wanted to let you know that all of me emails have bounced back. Trying to get in touch with you.
Need to ask a question.


I am so glad you are back. I missed your inspiration! Because of you I started my own blog. Hope to see you there!



What a lovely tea party! Evy's chenille bedspread is adorable. I love chenille!


I left a comment somewhere on your blog asking about the paint color in your kitchen...just found the other post where you answered the question of not knowing the custom color....I have been looking for this color in picture all over the internet and cannot find the name of it?! Do you happend to have extra paint with the color info on it (you know like the number they use to mix the color or the brand you used??) Sorry to be such a bother but I am desperate! I an new to the blogging world so I am going to leave my e-mail info in case you happen to find some info. I know this is alot to ask (just some random person asking for something silly). But, when you not good with color is can turn bad quickly!!! Trust me!! I've been there and done that too many times! Thanks again for reading and for any of your help!!!

thanks for sharing your ideas to the reast of us who need the inspiration!!!


Hey Allie,
Yes that is the email address I am using. I have not had that happen before. Anyway I need your address, so I can ship your package. Email it to me, and let me know if you want the crown to say anything or remain plain.


Hi again Allie,
I just want you to know that the 2 emails I tried last night bounced back again.
Anyway just to let you know, I shipped your package off this morning.
Have a great weekend!


So glad I decided to pop in today and *surprise* you are back to blogging. This is my first time to comment, but I have been lurking on your blog forever.
What a lovely bedspread you found for your daughter. Looking forward to your posts.

Hi Allison, I simply love visiting with you. And so glad to see you back. I wanted to tell you that I nominated you for a award. You can get details at my blog.
Good Luck!


Hi Allie,
Just so you know I sent an email to the other address. Let me know if you get it. Sometimes it doesn't bounce back until the next day or so.
Have a nice evening,


Oh look how adorable Evy looks in her hat !!!! I remember having tea parties with my dolls and then my daughters doing the same thing. It makes for sweet childhood memories. Mr. Barrington is a very handsome bear.

Now this post really makes me want a girl so I can throw tea parties too! How sweet!


I adore these photographs. My daughter loves tea parties as well. I have just purchased the Madeleine tea set for her. She will happily set up anywhere with a few toys for visitors. Sigh, such innocent, charming times. They really are a delight.


It's been awhile since I came to visit you. I thought you have gone away for good.
So, happy I stopped by again just to check, and there you are posting again.
Your fairy cakes look wonderful, I baked some a week ago.

Welcome Back
