AND, iced tea in a fancy tea pot!



Calligraphy writing is harder than it looks! But all the ladies did great!

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”  Mr. Darcy

Whip cream, iced coffee and blackberry cobbler; what could possibly be better?!

The dark vintage-ish purple floral blanket I picked up at a local thrift store. It was pinned to a bed skirt. I used the bed-skirt material to make the napkins, line the suitcase and make the bunting. Again, Selina Lake inspired; dark florals!
