Tea Time Tuesday

Hi my sweet Tea Loving Friends!

Oh I have been MIA a couple of weeks from my Tea post but
I assure you all for good reasons!

I will be joining Sandi over at Rose Chintz
Cottage and the others I have listed
on the ~links to the left~ of my tea post.
Be sure to stop by each one and see the
many TEA lovelies out there!

If you scroll 2 posts down you will see an
area that had bothered me and the
wonderful transformation I created by
just adding a desk hutch to this area
to create another display area for my
Tea Treasures.
I decided that I'd go ahead and take closer up pictures for
you. I wanted to share all the wonderful loved treasures that I
DO use.  With many having
such wonderful stories behind them.
Some are gifts from dear family and friends.
Others are simply treasure finds!

But...I LOVE how this has turned out
and
am just so delighted with my new
display area.

I have been tweaking it.  And, I do
think now its ready...for at least today! lol
Enjoy my sweet friends!
Here are closer looks a 2 shelves at a time.  I even
had room on top to display goodies! YES!!
Now, how bout an even closer up look?
Below, next 3 picture are the main shelf display area.

I had to take a closer shot of these darling butter
knifes with stacking teacups! Too Cute huh?!
Here's closer ups of the next shelf.
Do you see my collection of English Bone china
creamer and sugar sets?
Now the next shelf up.


This picture below is the tippy top shelf...
This area was called a butlers pantry by our builder.
But for me they didn't put the type of storage in I could have
used...so my creativity took over 17 years later!
I guess, better late than never doing anything!
I really am so happy with how well this area
turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy TEA Everyone!

Lorena, my dear friend, you have outdid yourself! What a splendid idea and a wonderful use of space! Your china looks mighty pretty on those shelves. I LOVE the pink chintzy teacup on the second shelf from the top; of course you knew I would! How good you must feel and well, actually, one can tell from your post that you're happy with the results. And I'm happy for you too! Thanks for sharing your pretties and have a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Lorena, You have many beautiful tea cups, teapots, plates, crystal and cream and sugar sets. I clicked to enlarge the photos and got a great view of your pretty hutch with its fabulous contents.

You have so many lovely tea things and have displayed them in such a nice way. I enjoyed the cream and sugar sets as I have collected a few myself.

Oh Lorena I love this! It looks like a tea party ready to happen at the drop of a hat (and gloves of course)! It's all so perfect!! You've done a fabulous job and now this little space is a treasure chest.

I'm ready for a cup of tea!!
Hugs, sherry

Hi Lorena :) Oh My!! You have quite a lovely collection of pretty china, and love the cabinet you have them displayed in. It's always nice to see how one actually displays their cups in their homes. I plan to do a future tea post showing where I display some of my cups in my home :)

Wishing you a lovely Tea Tuesday!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Holy Cow Lorena!!!
This display is gorgeous! I love everything!
Where on Earth did you find the teapot with the morning glory spout? (that's what it looks like to me) It is exquisite! I also like the teacup and saucer display holders you have (the cream coloured pressed metal ones) Where did you find them??
Well, I am late in getting around to everyone for Teacup Tuesday.
Take care, sweetie.
Drop in when you can!
Warm hugs, Laura
