  1. Alberta vintage girls tea party

    Sunday, September 23, 2012

    Saturday's tea party was a smashing success, if I do say so myself! We made way too much food, had lots of laughs and met some lovely new ladies.

    Aside from myself, Miss Bee and Krista Dee, our tea party was also attended by the lovely Erin, Asha, Keri and Julie. 



    Before everyone arrived, we were busy in the kitchen. Look at these two gorgeous hostesses! 



    I was in charge of making cucumber sandwiches.


    Chanel was in charge of sitting on top of the fridge looking cute with her jaunty scarf.


    I finally got to debut this gorgeous hat I bought in Camrose forever ago.


    Keri, the darling that she is, also brought some vintage goodies she rescued from an old building on her farm. I snagged a bread box (which will actually sit empty as I will always forget that I have bread in there), these adorable lamb salt and pepper shakers and a beautiful vase. The bread box really anchors my table and makes me feel like the dining nook is complete now.



    I also took home these glasses, which are from 1971 according to a slip of paper inside. The timing couldn't be better because last weekend Ian broke my glasses after accidentally sitting on them. That's what I get for not putting them on the table!

    I'm going to take them in soon to get my prescription in them and the legs fitted to my face better. Hopefully they can manage it!



    In other news, I am going to enjoy a deliciously lazy Sunday knitting, listening to music, walking and enjoying the fall foliage and doing laundry.

    2. Posts like this really warm my heart, because it sometimes feels like I'm the only vintage wearing gal in Canada. Of course such is not the case, but when you live in a small-ish town and have never encountered another vintage loving gal in person, it can really help to see photos of others like you out there just a province away.
