High Tea and Girls Day Out

Yesterday I got to spend an afternoon with 2 great friends.  We began our "Girls Day Out"  with an afternoon tea at this cute little tea room in Woodstock called Tea Leaves and Thyme.  It was reminiscent of my childhood days when I would pretend to have tea parties

This was a big girl's tea party.

Next it was off for SHOPPING at the Woodstock Antique Market.  Remember I decorate on a budget so if I find something that I really like, I will duplicate it without spending a lot of money.

Cute little chalkboard.  I know I can duplicate this.  After careful examination I discovered that it is a plastic tray (yes, plastic) from the dollar store and the center is painted with chalkboard paint.  Can you see the price tag?  It was $9.95!  You have got to be kidding me!
I have seen this so many times before on other blogs and I can definitely do this.  Off to Goodwill to look for old books.
Now this is something that I CANNOT duplicate.  These are beautiful tassels created by Traci at Timeless Southern Home.   I have featured her before: A Unique Find.  

There it was calling her name! 

Aren't they just beautiful!  We went there just so I could show my friends these tassels.  This is going to look so pretty in her kitchen.
This is next on my "to do" list. 


  1. Hi Patti, I had a booth at the Chattanooga Market on Sunday and imagine my surprise when I met your friend. It is such a small world! She said she had bought the Rooster tassel at Woodstock. I cannot thank you enough for being my cheerleader and taking your friends to Woodstock to look at my tassels!

  2. Hi Patti! This looks like a fun place...and I love the shop! Thanks for entering the giveaway! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  3. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time! Looks like so much fun and looks like you got a lot of great ideas!!
