Genteel with Big Hair

Dainty china tea cups
inspire an endless fantasy of  white gloved ladies with perfect posture, small waists
 and Big Hair .  

 I imagine these ladies playing croquet on the lawns of the grand ocean front Victorian Cottages I visited with my grandmother.

 Blue skies and a flag snapping in the breeze…

The crack of the mallet hitting the ball… Genteel squeals of delight …

Tea served outside. Ornate cast iron chairs to perch
upon. .

Have another cup of tea.

 Battenberg lace ...

and visiting cards 

Those days are gone. But here, still, are the last of the season’s
roses and some late blooming lavender…
And a garden of dainty china tea cups.

Please join me at these wonderful parties
White gloves and Visiting cards optional
