It's TEA TIME Tuesday!

Good Morning My Tea Loving Friends!

Once again, Tuesday's just seem to sneak up on me! How
does that happen? I wish I knew.  My life has gotten quite
busy, even with my hubby down in Ft Wayne during the week.
But I am NOT's just the way I like it.

Okay...for today's tea sharing goodies, I decided to share
a newer vinette I placed in a corner in my eat in-kitchen.  I
have this neat wicker covered shelf that I have some
items I love to display on.  My favorite is the Blue and white
lamp that I keep I went with that and added
other goodies on both shelves as you can see.

Do you see that  I have a blue and white theme? mixed
in with some Roosters in my Kitchen area? Yep, those are
my favorite things to use in here.  I love
to mix these up for *eye candy*. 
Do you spy the big FAT tea pot with the
heart? it is the one I use the most when Steeping my

Oh and I could not finish up today without sharing an
amazing thrifting find!!!
As an artist who paints roses, I just can never
seem to pass up an opportunity to pick up the works
of other artist...this gem...only $4!!!
I cannot get over anyone who would get rid of
such a beauty, can you?

Thanks again for stopping by!

Please visit my lovely hostess Sandi at
to see other Tea Time particpants!

Happy Tea Everyone!

Hello my sweet friend,
Your blue and whites are wonderful; love the teapot! I've seen that teapot somewhere before but I can't remember where. I love your arrangement of plates on the wall too; so charming! I absolutely LOVE your new hand painted rose plate! I agree, who would want to part with it? But then again, now you get to enjoy it. Thank you for sharing and I hope you are having a lovely week.

Blessings and hugs,

Hi Lorena,
this little shelf is lovely decorated with all your blue and white treasures. Looks very inviting. And your thrifting find is a wonderful painting. I wish I could paint roses like that. This is so pretty with the soft colors and the dainty roses. You will have lots of fun with it.
Greetings, Johanna

Oh, I love your thrifty find! What a gorgeous plate. We have some like that at our thrift store but not in that nice of condition.

Lorena, your vignette looks very sweet. Of course I love anything to do with tea but I have to say that plate is soooo beautiful. And to think someone gave it away!! But I am glad you were able to snatch it before someone else got it.


Hi Lorena,
I see a pretty new banner! Very nice.
Great price on the lovely painted rose plate.
New routine with hubby's new job.."change" is good (?!)

Pink roses, my favorite! Great bargain. Tea from a teapot with a heart would be just "my cup of tea". Anything with hearts or pink!! ♥♫

Here it is Thursday, and I'm still making the Tuesday Tea rounds. I seem to take until Thursday or Friday to visit everyone. Sorry to be so late joining your party.

Your vignette is beautiful. SO Americana-ish and patriotic with the red in the hatbox and on the table scarf. LOVE it.

And that rose dish is gorgeous. It is definitely hard to imagine why someone would want to get rid of that.

Blessings to you,

Hi Lorena,
What a darling vignette you have displayed. I of course love the blue and white with roosters and teapots since I have the same in my kitchen. We are sure kindred spirits my friend. WOW the rose dish find is gorgeous. What a treasure.

Thank you for stopping by. So nice to see you and I so enjoyed my visit tonight. Love your blog look and header.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Blessings and Prayers,
Love to you, Celestina Marie
