Valentine Tea

When I was growing up, my mother kept my world very sheltered as if my life were a fairy tale and tea was an every afternoon affair. She let me dress up in fancy dresses and use the fanciest vintage china. This tradition is still alive and I'm so blessed to share all of these precious moments with the women in my family who have shaped me and who have taught me to appriciate all things old, even vintage teacups.

Here is the beautiful setting my mother put together for our lovely afternoon Valentine tea.
My mother wore beautiful vintage lace dress with tall white gloves.
She even had heart shaped, cucumber sandwiches. 
The tea party would not be complete without vintage hats and Texas Trash jewelry to wear.

Happy Valentine's Day to all.
