I immediately thought "An Afternoon tea on the lawn." The pictures were beautiful and the ladies in their white dresses make it seem a little old fashioned as well. There was also beautiful red and yellow china pieces.
The next article I read was about Hillwood Garden in Washington, D.C., which I had the opportunity to visit last year. Hillwood is beautiful, and has displays of French and Russian antique porcelain, antiques, art, and wonderful gardens.
See here for my blog entry about Hillwood, in particular the Russian exhibits, including the tea I had at the café on the premises.
Two other interesting articles included one about Traverse City, Michigan, and a townhouse in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.
I definitely highly recommend this issue!
