Blogger is now uploading pictures :).
Below we have our lovely table spread and all but one of our party visible. Mrs. Zeglen was kind enough to take this picture, but in the process was omitted from the photo shoot :(. Aren't all the hats lovely? Most came from my collection of thrift store finds, and Mary and Susie also brought a few to add to the selection. From the top going clockwise: Susie, Sarah, Mother Dear, Kathy, Hannah, Mary, Yours Truly.
Here is Mary studying the selection of teas offered. There were oodles of choices! We tried Earl Grey, Chocolate Rose, and French Vanilla, and Strawberry Kiwi (I passed on that one!).
Kathy poses for her Dear Mother. She is wearing an India dress that my aunt gave Hannah ages ago. It's still well-loved :).
Here are Susie and Sarah. Susie is wearing yet another India outfit from my aunt, that continues to serve our dress-up needs. Sarah enjoyed creating a completely black-and-white outfit from my collection of scarves, petticoats, and hats. She brought pearl beads to complete the look.
Sisters (music strikes up), sisters, there were never such devoted sisters, sisters. The problem is, every time I start singing that song, instead of seeing the lovely devoted sisters in their costumes, I visualize Danny Kay and Bing Crosby with feathery fans and hair pieces. Hehe.
Here we are out in front of the tea room, with the sign beside us.
