Tea Time Tuesdays!

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome
Once Again to Tuesday's
Tea Time with my sweet friend
See if you can see a theme today in my pictures.
(well somewhat of a theme, hehe)

Today we will be having...homemade cream puffs,
stuffed with vanilla pudding and whipping cream.
A family FAV!

My table is set for 3...which is how many are in my family.

These 3 cups were gifted to me quite a few years ago from
my BIL who picked my name for Christmas.
Since he KNEW I LOVED Tea Cups...he gifted
me with 3, 1 for each month me, my hubs and daughter
were born.  They are gorgeous!
Even the inside was not missed to have pretty
flowers in them.

A sweet Pansy Tiny Tea Pot was a gift.  Another
creamer sugar from my collection.
A set of 5 Violet Plates gifted to me from my hubbys aunt!
Love all the GOLD on them.
Here is where my cup reside when I am not
using them
I am not sure what this contraption was intended for I have
used it for stacking plates and cups/saucers and
of course it was
a steal at TJMaxx!

Did you see my PURPLE theme...???

Happy Tea Time Tuesday!

Oh Lorena,

And your table my dear is set so beautifully... may I come over for a bite of your cream puffs and a sip of your tea?

Hi dear friend,
Your teacups are so pretty; love the December one! Homemade cream puffs sound awfully good to me! That is something I have never made and I don't know why. I really like them! I adore your beautiful violet plates; they're stunning! You're putting to good use those 'contraptions' you got at TJMaxx! I must keep my eye out for something like that because not only would it come in handy but it's very pretty holding your china. Your tea has been lovely and I thank you for sharing. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time Tuesday once again. Wishing you a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Lorena,
Your dishes are magnificent! I just adore the sweet pattern on them! Homemade cream puffs!! I am drooling!
I love the "contraption" because your dishes look wonderful on it! What a great idea to use it as a serving piece especially if it was meant for something else! LOL!!
