Welcome to my tea cottage! You’re just in time to join me for tea…except that I only have a teapot and teacup for one today! No worries, though, it will just take me a second to grab another teacup for YOU!
Let’s sip for a while, then you will want to visit our pink and rosy tea and china loving Kim to see her wonderful tea things on this beautiful day, as well as the other participants of Tea Things Tuesday. Just click on that china cupboard to the right, and you’ll be right there!
This is one of my newest acquisitions…a teapot for one, purchased at Home Goods for only $4.99. Winter white is my favorite “color”. I honestly feel like I’m stealing from them at times…how can something this pretty be so inexpensive?
The leaf design is so Autumn looking, isn’t it? With these lovely placemats that I found at the same time, with their rosy red roses and pretty green leaves, it reminds me of my rose garden against our white house…the outside coming inside!
I found this set of 5 napkins at my favorite thrift store last week. The package said a set of 6, but when I got home and opened it, there were only 5. I bought them on Tuesday, which was 10% off day, so I paid a whopping $4.50 for the 5! I adore the brides basket accented by the 2 butterflies on either side…just too beautiful!
Hubby just lit a fire…we’re waiting for Dancing With the Stars to start, so I decided to make myself a cup of tea and have a scone or two for dessert.
I bought the rosy red rose stems years ago to use as napkin rings. They look nice with the place mats, I think.
I bought these plates at T.J. Maxx in June…this is the salad plate, but I also bought the dinner size…they are also winter white, and I really like the scalloped edges, along with the pretty trim. I managed to get 6 dinner plates, but only 4 salad plates…boo.
Time for candlelight…roses on the votive candle holders. Roses, roses, roses…I never get enough. They were another Home Goods buy. Love that Home Goods!!!
Hubby stretched out on his recliner in front of the fireplace, and Gracie getting comfortable on her checkered chair. It used to be my chair until we adopted her. Sometimes she shares…but not often. That’s okay, I’m perfectly content sitting here with my tea, scones, and candles. Now all I need is a good book to read while I wait for “Dancing” to begin!
Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope the fire and candlelight warmed you. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see more of my thrift store finds. Now don’t forget to visit Kim…she’s waiting for you!
God bless everyone. May you have a wonderful Tuesday, and please remember to pray for our soldiers. At this point, I just want them to come home…right or wrong…just bring them home. Please pray for our blogging friends who need to be lifted up for healing. And pray for our leaders to be literally slapped into reason by Almighty God, who must be asking the same thing we’re asking…”what on earth are you doing ?” It surely doesn’t look anything like “as it is in Heaven”.
Love to all!
