Before it got so blasted hot here, I planned a surprise for my teenager daughter, breakfast for the two of us back in the woods at Cedar Hill.
I set out a tea towel for our tablecloth, and spread out a few dishes, with coffee, strawberries, and croissants.
Our centerpiece was an old vintage blue mason jar filled with wildflowers.
Here’s a photo of her hot pink boots.
Since our surprise breakfast, I have painted the table and chairs, and I’ll share the new look in an upcoming post.
How fun!!! I love the table and chairs – I think I’ll start looking for a set.

Precious memories for you and your daughter in the making!!! This is a romantic venture of the bond between mother and child. My son, now grown, and I adore telling of the place in time when he and I shared a similar breakfast in our country kitchen. He was a sophomore in college. A stolen moment between mother and child forever etched in our memory…priceless. In the years to come this photo of the boots will bring smiles to both your faces!
