Tea on Tuesday 16


Today my Tea is Jasmin because it reminds me of the beach!
My sweet Mother-n-law passed away the first week in June;
it has been so hard for all of us. As a tribute to her, we are all
going to Florida soon for a beach filled vacation.
When my hubby was a kid they would all pile in the
station wagon (2 sisters&1 brother) with dad at the wheel
and his mom wielding the hair brush (in case of any trouble). They
would meet up with 2 or 3 other families (in their station wagons)
and off to Florida they would go!
The stories they tell about their adventures are so funny!
They made so many great family memories in those vacation years.
So, with much happiness, I am gearing up for the beach with my
hubby, 2 almost grown boys and my dear friend and sis-n-law and
her sweet husband- 7 fun relaxing days beach side......hmmm I
can hear the ocean now......
Hope you are having wonderful Tea on Tuesday!
Please visit my friend Kimmie at art in red wagons to
check out everyone having Tea on Tuesday.

My GREAT find of the summer 2011

Oh My GOODNESS! I just cannot contain myself......
The other day my son and I decided to stop at Salvation Army,
just to check out if they had any' fun stuff' going on.
Well much to delight I found THIS!
A 5 piece silver plated Tea/Coffee service!

This beauty from the International Silver Company was still in the box! You will never guess how much it was.......
Are you ready? (drum roll please....) $9.99 yes... NINE DOLLARS and 99 cents!
Needless to say.....I am SO excited!

I have always wanted one to use at some of my more elegant
tea parties, I have been collecting silver things for tea parties for
a long time but did not have a tea service!
I just love bargain hunting you just never know what
YOU will find!

Tea on Tuesday 14


Good Day, all my Tea Friends!


I have missed you!


This is Tea for Two at my house.


Most of the dishes you see, were purchased at goodwill,
yard sales or given to me. I did get the fruit slice
dishes at Hobby Lobby last year 70% off.
The tea I choose was Organic Earl Grey.
The scones are white chocolate chip (yummy!)
It was all such a treat!
Happy Tea Day to all of you!

I am linking up with Between Naps on The Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
