"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:3-5

About Me

Oregon, United States
I am a happy, Christian, wife and post-homeschooling mother. I have spent the last several years homeschooling and now I am "adjusting" to a new season of life as "empty nester". In 2010 we moved to be Host/Caretakers at a Bible Camp. We look at our ministry here as preparing the way for the gospel to be shared as well as encouraging believers in their daily walk. I am a farmgirl at heart and love the country, I love gardening and food preserving. I also, love tea parties!! I also have a Titus 2 heart and want to share with anyone willing to listen and learn. I love having friends over and teaching them how to make bread or put up pickles. And as we work, I love to encourage them to love their husbands and their children and to be Keepers at Home and all that implies and I love that you let me do that here!! Hope you enjoy visiting my farm and walking through a journey in life with me.......I hope at some point in time I can encourage you in your walk and in your home..........

Valentines Tea

During the daytime tea everything was "PINK"...even the
food was pink.
Our daytime menu consisted of.....
Cranberry Whip (pink*)
Heart Shaped Scones
Heart Shaped Cucumber Sandwiches
Strawberry Cream Cheese Sandwiches (pink*)
Broiled Salmon & Chedder on Canape (pinkish*)
Linzer Hearts (pink*)
Chocolate Truffles
Berry Tarts (pink*)
and the finale....
Black Forrest Torte (oozing with pink*)

The ladies enjoyed themselves, lingered and slowly filtered
out as we began preparations for our next
group, the couples.......who were greeted
by twilight glows in the yard as the arrived....
Hurricanes along the walkway in the snow :)........
I was sooooo EXCITED to find these roses!!
I found them at the Dollar Store!! They were a dollar
each, but that is less than half of what that normally cost.
The Couples menu was almost the same, only they
had Greens with Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinegrette and
with the sandwiches they had beef or chicken pasties
and with the finale....they had choices,
Black Forrest Torte or Apple Upside Down
Torte with Caramel Sauce or Cheesecake with
Rhubarb Sauce. :) Yum!
For the couples, I added these table toppers to give
them a more "elegant" feeling......
I was happy to be able to use something I had on hand,
my sister-in-law gave me a whole roll of this decoraters
fabric, I also plan to make curtains out of it!! :) But I
thought it went well and was fun to dress up the
tea tables for a "Candlight Tea".
And those "little bit bigger" red teacups I bought for
the gentlemen...well, they worked very well.
Happy couples!!

Happy Tea Time!!

We all had fun, none of my helpers were available, so my daughter served as usual, but my husband had to help us, especially with pouring tea!! It was funnyat first, but he was AWESOME!! It actually added a touch of class having agentleman serve tea. The ladies especially loved it.
