This fine gauge sweater from Gap-it's so soft and the perfect length





Foldover gap skirt

World Market little plates for tea parties.



My mom got her this awesome tea kettle from Williams Sonoma. We able to add to her cooking items with new hot pad mitts, cupcake pans and a carrying case, and another good food carrier for when she caters teas. We even found some tea inspired cookie cutters that look like tea bags and tea pots for cute cookies.




We had a great picnic in the park with fish, wild rice, apple crisp and lots of fruit
