Monday, Tuesday.



Today we had our yearly afternoon tea in Madeliefs beautiful garden. We had  a great time with eight bloggers who all live in the neighborhood of Rotterdam. We chatted and laughed a lot and in these three years of blogging  we got to know each other rather well. It was as if we did meet yesterday instead of two years ago.
Thank you Madelief, it was wonderful. You are a beautiful host.

Het ziet er nog steeds heel erg lekker uit! Wat is het een gezellige traditie geworden hè, erg leuk om iedereen weer te zien. En al woon ik niet bepaald in de buurt, het was ook deze keer weer erg de moeite waard!

Je hebt er een mooie collage van gemaakt!

Lieve groet, Ingrid

JAMMIE, ohhh lieve Rietje wat
ziet het er allemaal ZEER
verleidelijk uit. Vooral op dit
tijdstip van schrijven knort
mijn maag luidruchtig, hihi.;

Wat hebben jullie het getroffen
met het weer. En wat heerlijk
zo samen met elkaar te genieten
van zo'n speciale dag.

En alle lekkernijen zien er
ZEER PROFESSIONEEL uit en zullen
ongetwijfeld heel erg lekker
gesmaakt hebben.
Madelief kan er wat van, fantastisch!!!

Geniet nog maar heerlijk na, en ook van een fijne nieuwe week.

Veel liefs,
Josephine Xxx

How wonderful to get together with blogger friends! I haven't ever done that, but I'm sure it would be great!

Dat ziet er goed uit, lijkt wel een fotoshoot voor een tijdschrift. Zal ook wel lekker gesmaakt hebben.

what a wonderful idea and that tea party looks scrumptious :)) but I particularly love the sweet-peas - one of my favourite flowers. Judyx

Looks like my favourite type of afternoon gathering - fine china, wonderful cakes (was that Union Jacks on the cup cakes?) and I can just smell the sweet peas from here!! I bet they were picked fresh from the garden that day.
Wonderful blog
I will be back!

I've met a few bloggers face to face and have always found them to be delightful. Your group sounds like a good one.

What a lovely spread! I like her blue chairs.


Happy Blue Monday, Riet.

Joyful said...

Sounds like you had such a nice time. The garden looks amazing.

Madelief said...

Lieve Riet,

Het is een prachtige post geworden! Gezellig dat je er gisteren weer bij was! De bananentaart is bij ons ook een succes. We hebben allemaal een stukje gegeten. De rest bewaar ik in de vriezer. We hadden zoveel over van de tea :-)

Zodra het kan kom ik een kopje thee of koffie bij je drinken!

Liefs, Madelief x
