Tea Time Tuesday ~ Tea Vinettes ~ Dining Room Tour ~

Hello Sweet Tea Loving Friends!

Today I am linking up with my dear sweet friend
for yet another amazing week of
sharing our love of all things tea.

If you come to my home as you enter, to your
right you will see my
*Tea Themed* Dining Room.

My Love for ALL thangs Tea began
 over 25 years ago when I was decorating
my first home.  Loving to shop at
quaint flea markets, antique shoppes
and thrift stores it is really where it all began.

And... through the years, family, friends
and moi have continue to add to that collection.
I began first with Tea Cups and then all
things tea began to follow.
The bulk of my collection is English bone
china which is my favorite,
but,
I am sure there are other makers
sprinkled within...the main theme is...
what strike me as pretty and of course roses!

I have been re-arranging some of my
shelves in my hutches, walls and dining room,
 so I thought you might like to see them.
Instead of sharing one or two items,
I'll share them all! lol

A full view into my dinimg room.
My Sweet Hutch, that houses most of my
*Rose Chintz* by Johnson Brothers.

I have been thinking about painting the insides of this hutch
or
placing lighter wall paper behind...what would you do?
A collection of blue cups and plates.
I do love to arrange my things in
unique ways...out in the open for all to see my
eye candy...I LOVE eye candy!


More cups and collectibles...
yep, I also love milk glass too!

Below is my *new* hutch that I created using
a *butlers* pass through are we have.
It had cabinets below...but not on top.
I took a shelf that was my daughters
hutch above her desk and turned it
into another display area for me to play with!


I hope you enjoyed my sharing of my
wonderful collection of tea things!
Many have such wonderful sentiments behind
them and make me feel so good when I view them.

Be Blessed!
Lorena
