Had the Weather Cooperated....

...this would have been the scene in our garden this past Tuesday.  I had hoped to serve desserts and coffee to my Red Hat Club ladies following our normal dinner meeting.  However, rain had fallen most of the morning and there was another strong rain around 200 p.m.  So desserts were served at the restaurant instead.  I had looked forward to using the cushions (click on "cushions" to see the story)  I had recently sewn scattered on various benches and seats throughout the yard along with vintage table clothes.  Oh well.  Maybe another time.


  1. Oh Rebecca, I am so sorry you did not get to share your beautiful outdoor space with your friends! Don't let to much time go by before you try it again, ole man winter will be here before we know it! Your cushions are really pretty! They look so nice on the benches!
    Great job!

  2. I too, had a little disappointment this week. I started to make a new Victorian out fit to wear to the Antique Car Festival at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Mi., but those who had planned on attending were not able to this year. So, I put what I had started into my Vintage costume container and will finish it for next year.
