Summer Lemonade
(and Thrifting)

What is it that makes Lemonade so lovely in the Summer sunshine?
I used our bistro table to set up this little side table next to the table we have under the apple tree. It is a nice shaded little area in our yard, cool and relaxing.


I have wanted to put together a little place for lemonade for some time, when I stumbled across this lemonade dispensing pitcher (still with the tag on the bottom of it), second hand from goodwill. It was marked $12.99, but it had a blue tag, and on that day the blue tags were only $1.29. I cannot tell you how quickly (and gently) this went into my cart!

Then nearly a day later I stumbled across these adorable cups from the dollar tree. I was so thrilled.

A nice treat for summer. And a pleasant place for the family in the sunshine.


Happy Summer!

I love that dispenser! What an awesome find! They never have anything nice at our thrift stores :(

I like the idea of sitting on the porch drinking lemonade or ice tea. But it's been 90-100 degrees around here lately...in PA! We're not used to that and I dare say we do not care for it ;)

You never know what you'll find at the GW! LOVE the lemons on your table -- This looks so refreshing -- I really like those Dollar Tree glasses too -- perfect!

Love your beverage server, Jessa Irene! Those tumblers are adorable too. What a cute setting for a glass of lemonade. Like your tea cups with cupcakes, too, and no, I wouldn't bake in my Old Country Roses china either!
Hugs, Beth

What a compliment those lemonade cups were for the pitcher! Don't you just love when those little unexpected finds just happen your way! I do! It all looks so refreshing under your tree! Have a good week.
