A Day With Friends

Saturday was a beautiful day of sunshine and low humidity in Kentucky. Mary, Patty, and I drove to the small town of Bloomfield where we did a little antique shopping and attended a lovely DAR benefit afternoon tea at a gorgeous privately-owned farm. Guests were asked not to take photos at the owner/host's request. I took notes on the foods and teas served, but no photos. So, to the readers of this blog — trust me, it was a very special event!
I purchased a silver salt spoon and sugar tongs at Nettie Jarvis Antiques prior to the guests being shuttled to the afternoon tea.

If you read between the lines and look carefully at the photos, you may be able to determine the names of the celebrity host and hostess who graciously opened their 1820 Greek-revival home and estate to 100 members of the Kentucky Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution for an awesome fundraiser afternoon tea to benefit Duncan Tavern, the state DAR headquarters.
