Time for tea

Phew it's a hot one today, maybe the title should have said iced tea.

I've done most of my chores so now have plans to sit in the garden under some shade with a pile of cotton yarn and a crochet hook... and a nice cold drink!

I mentioned in a previous post that I'm picking up the decopatch habit. As well as the chairs I recently showed you, my other addiction is hostess trollies.

Perfect for for serving a nice cup of tea or perhaps a cocktail or two!

I have another one in progress at the moment too, I love them. Perfect for serving from, but I also have one with my ongoing projects stacked on, sewing box, books etc. So is it just me or are there other trolley fans out there?

Imogen has been busy too. Hot weather calls for light summer desserts. Jelly, strawberries and cream topping,

with lots of sprinkles on top.

My sweet daughter had her plaster removed yesterday, so is now hoping her white leg will soon tan to match the other :)

Have a wonderful weekend where ever you are

Take care


  1. Your Hostess Trolley is beautiful! It's perfect for a summer garden party. Great berries and adorable doggie.... such a happy blog post! : )X

  2. The trolley looks fab, as does that dessert, yum. I'm sure Imogen's leg will soon tan if this weather continues. Love the puppy photo.

  3. Your cart looks adorable and the dessert looks very tasty!

  4. Your trolley looks great Cheryl, decoupage is something I still have to try.
    Loving the gratuitous puppy pic!

  9. Love tea trolleys! And yours is very pretty. :) And the dessert looks yummy and refreshing!

  10. Just getting caught up on some blog reading. I love the doily you made ( a few posts back) It'll be a gorgeous table runner some day. So sorry about Imogen's leg. Sounds like she is on the mend though, so that's good. Gorgeous afghan you are making and how sweet that your friend wants a special blanket for foster children. Adorable puppies. Aren't they always cute? It's going to be hard to let them go, if you plan on doing so. The carts...I love them. I have two similar ones in the room we are living in. One is used for my coffee pot and coffee items, I call it my coffee bar, and the other one is used for the bread box and wooden spoons and such. I love them. Oh yeah, i already said that! They are a bit nostalgic too. Never thought about decoupaging one. Great idea. The chair looks great too. Glad to get caught up!

  14. I love what you've done with that trolley. It's so pretty! Perfect for serving summer deserts, like that jelly which also looks wonderful. x

  15. Great pick-me-up for the trolley Cheryl! Glad to hear your daughter's leg has improved and hope she soon gets the tan to match the other one!
