Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor for Tea TimeTuesday
The Plumed Pen with Wanda Lee for Tuesday Tea for Two and Wednesday Tea for me and Thee
Nothing fancy with this tea. I'm basically showing off my silver plated cream and sugar I got from Goodwill a while ago and finally polished. The only real "flaw" is that someone obviously used the creamer for an ashtray -- don't you just hate that. I haven't worked too hard yet to get the staining out of the bottom, but they sure polished up nice.
I also washed and ironed a new cutwork cloth that I put on the table. Here is a closeup of the cutwork.
I also used a couple of little tea napkins I picked up from a thrift store.
After cleaning up the roses from two days ago I moved them onto the table.
And, yes, they do smell wonderful.
Since the creamer is stained I used it for a couple of pieces of plated flatware from my collection. One of my favorites is the fork that is monogrammed "Birdie".
I like thinking about who she was and how much fun she must have been to have this pattern with her name on it.
And a couple of cups in the same pattern, different color from Marshall's. I didn't feel like hand-washing anything today.
And there you have it. A few moments of quiet before my favorite little toddler shows up to spend the afternoon with me.
Thanks so much for dropping by. Maybe next time I'll be inspired to back something yummy, although I can't count on it 'cause I've been told my cholesterol is too high and my Dr. is sending me a pamphlet. Guess if I eat the pamphlet it will lower my cholesterol.
