Tea Time Tuesday

Barb at Grits and Glamour hosts Tea Time Tuesday every other week and I’m joining in this week.


I love my Wind in the Willows Teapot that I bought at the Rose Bowl Flea Market over a year ago. I put together a Pink and Green Tea tray to go with it just for fun. I enjoyed reading Wind in the Willows for the first time just before I saw this Teapot so I decided to add it to my small collection.

This is a tea I hosted back in February for my Bible Study ladies.


These are individual little bubble vase place card holders that are fun to use for tea or any meal.

I’m looking forward to  coming around to see your Tea Time posts.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Tablescape Tuesday ~ Christmas Past

Welcome to Tablescape Tuesday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I’m still in San Francisco and will be flying back to the LA area tomorrow morning. I had to post this now because I’m headed out for my last day of sight seeing in Cloudy San Francisco. The computer has to get locked up in the safe :0) I hope to get around to all the lovely tablescapes tomorrow evening. To everyone who stops by here I hope your week is filled with simple joys…


This tablescape is from a Young Ladies Bible Study Christmas Dinner I hosted a few years ago. This was before blogging and my photos are not real clear and detailed but I think you’ll get the feel.

The next two collages are from last year and they are photos of our fun everyday Christmas table.


The Bear Placemats are from our almost 23 year old daughter’s first birthday. She was born on December 27th.


These are our little vintage place card holders that we inherited from Dear’s mother Verna. We have 3 boxes of them and she never used them. I’ve changed up our everyday table this year and I’ll be showing that scape soon.

For more tablescapes visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Thank you Susan for hosting this fun blog carnival!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007 to 2015 hostage and has replaced them all with ugly black and grey boxes asking for a ransom to have them re-published. Such a frustrating bother.
