A Sunny September Tea Time


Welcome Tea Friends!

It's another Sunny September day! And I'm hoping there will be many more this month.


I was going to give this rose trestle away but my neighbour suggested that I keep it and paint it pink and I'm so happy I did.  


I decorated the rose trestle with some watering cans and a potato masher chime that I made with one that I also planned to give away.  


I painted the handle pale pink and added some vintage spoons and blue ribbon. 





I keep thinking that the pink roses have finished blooming and then I am overjoyed to see more blooms.



This shell topped table is perfect for the beach cottage.
  




I found some nice silver pails while thrifting.  They will serve well as vintage plant holders.
.

I hope your September Days are sunny too!


Thank you for stopping by!

A Seniorita and Chintz Tea Time


Happy September Sweet Tea Friends!

Today I wanted to share a precious
  gift from my sweet sis.


It's Royal Albert's rare and beautiful Seniorita pattern.


She was so generous to give me the cake plate, tea cup and sweet dish. Love it's lacy look. Such treasures! 💚 

(I remember Martha at Martha's Favourites called it a sexy teacup ~Lol. I have been missing Martha and pray that she is okay.)






About two years ago,  I treated myself to this flowered black chintz  Gracie China "Stechol" from Winners/Home Sense.  I always ask for gift cards on special occasions.


The pink flowers were a gift from my oldest friend Debbie when she came for lunch.  (Friends since grade one!)






This Sadler cube is a lime green and sweet Lanny was helping me to search for these teapots and found it at Value Village!



It's very smokey this morning and I am hoping for rain to clear the air and help the surrounding wild forest fires.




Thank you for stopping by today!


Have a Wonderful Week!
Karen

A Tasha Tudor's Tea Time


Welcome Sweet Tea Friends to: 

"A Tasha Tudor Tea Time"



Bernideen is having a special Tea in the Garden today to celebrate Tasha Tudor's 102nd Birthday and I wanted to join in the fun.

I have only owned one Tasha Tudor book which is called A is for Annabelle.  I had it in my kindergarten class because it is an alphabet book.  Since I retired my collections are stacked in boxes and I was unable to locate it.

This is what the book looked like.


Each letter of the alphabet is related to a doll's beautiful accessories, such as lockets and parasols, in a brilliantly illustrated companion to the Caldecott award-winning counting book.  It was originally published in 1954 and Tasha Tudor is the Author and Illustrator. 

So today I have tried to create a tea party appropriate for a little girl and her dolls to remember Tasha Tudor. 





I have chosen two favourite demitasse teacups ~ just the perfect size for a little girl.  (I wish my grand daughter was her to play with me).



This demitasse is a Tuscan DuBarry Rose.






This wee one is Spode's Billingsley Rose. 







I love the little faces on this vintage teapot.





The teapot is a miniature Sadler cube.





Little girls love to dress up so on the bush is a pretty white frock and sparkly crown.





 A vintage purse and pearls is needed for dress up too.








The flowers were for our 35th Wedding Anniversary ~ a gift from my son and dear daughter-in-law.  Thank you Bradley and Anna!




Thank you too for stopping by today for a tea time  tribute to Tasha Tudor.



See you next time!
Karen
