Southern Summer Time

Hi there... it's been a while.  I am going to visit every one's blog today and try to catch up. This weekend all of the girls in the family took my Mom out to the Garden Gate Tea Room for her birthday. It was so lovely... While in Mt. Dora I found this adorable sign.

It reads The South  The place where... 1) Tea is sweet and accents are sweeter. 2) Summer starts in April. 3) Macaroni and Cheese is a vegetable. 4) Front porches are wide and words are long. 5) Pecan pie is a staple. 6) Y'all is the only proper noun. 7) Chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy. 8) Everything is Darlin' 9) Someones heart is always being blessed.

I fell in love with it and brought it home... Now I can't decide where to put it.

At the tea room you can pick a hat to where.... this is my sister just playing around. Doesn't she look cute.

I did not where this hat but my sister insisted I get a pic in it.

This tree was beside our table, the little butterfly on it was solar powered, so its wings would gently move.

A look at the ceiling.

I sat right next to the piano.

I love the carvings on the piano.

We had a lovely time and the lunch was delicious. My mom's birthday isn't for a few more days but it was a good weekend for us all to go. So, we did. Now I am off to see what everyone has been up to....
