Its Tuesday, and time to join Kim for Tea Things Tuesday. Kim has run out of tea things…can you imagine?…so today is our last get together…be sure to visit Kim and the other tea lovers and see what they’ve chosen to show you…I know you’ll love everything! Just click on that little teacup to the right, and you’ll be there!
The Rose Petal Tea Society had their December tea on Saturday, and I’d like to share some photos with you. It would have been great to have all of you there, too…this is a great group of ladies, and I know you would love them, and they would love you!
In case you don’t remember, the Rose Petal Tea Society is a tea club that we started over 5 years ago. In the first year, we went to tea, or had a tea in a home, every other month. By the second year, we had decided that we wanted to meet every month…we just couldn’t wait til the next tea! There are about 18 of us, and we usually see at least 14 in attendance, so we have to find extra chairs, put tables together, etc., to fit us together, but we always have a fantastic couple of hours together. Because this is our December tea, of course, it also became our Christmas tea, so we exchanged gifts…it was great fun…we were just like those little girls of years ago, waiting in anticipation to see what we got!
Do you see this gorgeous crocheted tablecloth? If I could have fit it under my jacket, it would have been in my house today! And the Christmas plates that are clear, but with an etched design were stunning…I only wish I could have captured the detail better…they were outstanding…and vintage… so we can’t just run out and buy them!
Is this teapot beautiful, or what? It isn’t actually a Christmas teapot, but the colors lend to the season perfectly, especially sitting alongside the Christmas cactus plants, just beginning to bloom…such a pretty sight!
Notice the little Christmas village on the sideboard behind the ladies, and the framed artwork on the wall…lovely vintage items in this beautiful home! No, no, I don’t mean the girls….oh, my, no way!
Keep your grubby hands off my gift!
“Afternoon Tea”…a book full of new ideas and recipes…YUM!
This is a real teacup made into a pin cushion…adorable!
Our lovely hostesses, Kathy and Sheila…thank you for a wonderful tea!
I hope you enjoyed our tea party! I’m sorry I didn’t show you last month’s tea…it was also beautiful, but my photos didn’t turn out, so I didn’t post them. Maybe a new camera will be under my tree this year?
I also had a small tea on Friday for my Bible study friends…here a few photos of the table before they arrived.
Ever since I changed my blog background to the three column, my photos have been chopped off on the right side…any ideas on that?
I have been really much more busy than I want to be, and haven’t had time to answer emails, or visit your blogs, but I hope to be caught up enough to find an hour tonight to do so…I miss seeing everything you’re doing, or writing about…visiting my blogging friends refreshes me, and I am really missing that right now! Just know that, even if I’m not leaving a comment, you’re in my thoughts and prayers!
God bless you all…have a wonderful day!
