TEA SAMPLING- VANILLA CREAM TEA

 TEA For SAMPLING: Compliments of Vintage Tea
Yes, this is the tea I have been searching for! I just love vanilla cream tea, with breakfast or anything sweet. It is the perfect combination to go with cake, cookies, cinnamon raisin bread, just anything you like. I recomend this tea highly. My  Old Country Roses tea cup in one, holds almost two cups of tea, I brought my water to a rolling boil, and poured a little in the tea pot to warm , poured it out and added two full teaspoons of vanilla cream tea and filled the tea pot with water. I let it steep six minutes, I know you are not to go by color of the tea, but I could not help myself, for I like my tea strong. I used a strainer and added sugar to my taste and just a little milk. Vintage tea’s vanilla cream tea turned out to be the tea that I love. Thanks to Vintage Tea for helping me find my vanilla cream tea that, I have been searching for, since I lost contact with the company in Florida, where I was purchasing my tea.

One of my pink roses floating in crystal rocks in a crystal bowl,with little glass diamonds laying all around. A burgundy place mat on top of my crocheted table cloth, that was made by me long ago,and my lovely little tea silver tea strainer.

All upon my antique round table, with my Royal Albert Country Roses China.

With my vanilla cream tea, a simple strawberry tart, cut in squares, topped with Smucker’s strawberry preserves. One of my favorite little books,
WISDOM for the way, by Charles R. Swindoll .
All ready to relax with my tea and little book.
I am now ready to  taste  Vintage Tea’s vanilla cream tea.
In my parlor with my beloved teapot in one and my favorite vanilla cream tea.  My favorite corner! is now being replaced now with book shelves. Can’t wait to show you! My corner will still be there just in reach of a favorite book!

A DAY OUTDOORS WITH MY CHICK FRIENDS AND BLUE EGGS

A Nest of Blue, Green, and White Eggs
Here are the blue and green eggs I promised to show you!
Sorry, I have not found the hens they lay the Chocolate Color Eggs, Yet!

Let take a peek at Diamond our Hen sitting on the eggs

Diamond prefers to sit on the eggs in a milk crate,
Yes, I do have a nesting box, but not one hen wants to lay in it!

Here is a chicken coop, my hubby put together, from old rabbit pens.
I got rabbit pens free, and using them for a second time around, for raising the little chicks in, until they are large enough to go in the chicken run.

Every Morning I am greeted by my little chicks at the door,
just waiting to fly onto my arms.

This little chick loves to be held, just like me! lol

This bantam sea bright chick, loves to stand on the water jar.

Yes, the chick is still posing for you.

Now, my hubby took down my old chicken house.
This chicken run is for temporary housing.
Until the another chicken house gets built. Where are the chickens?
Most of my chickens are free range,
so they are out and about.
This hen lays pink, green, and blue eggs.
Can you see her little chick riding on her back?
Here are my Bantams chicks that greet me at the door.
The black are Old English Bantams,
the brown and black are Sea bright Bantams
The speckled color chicks are Molted Bantams.
We’ve had several death in our family.
I been out state twice, then on a few other trips out of town,
and got to fit in some shopping!
I am enjoying the outdoors, and working on many projects in our home.
Please know I am doing OK, for I have a lot to do before my next major surgery.
Thank you all for for your concern, Emails and Comments.
It is such a nice feeling to know you all are Thinking of Me!
Thank you all so much!
As Always Save A Cup Of Tea For Me!

WHITE DISH TREASURES

White Treasures Found!

Today my daughter found four plates, two salad plates, and three serving bowls, in the pattern of her Great Grandmother’s every day dishes, for $7.50



Do you remember these white dishes? I found in Hubbys Grandmother’s cabinet. He had not seen them since he was a little boy. I had them saved for years,
took them out of storage and cleaned them up on Valentines Morning.

Here are Hubby Grandmothers dishes I saved from the bulldozer!
They are inside the bottom blue shelves, Remember I made this buffet, from the old kitchen islands two drawers.

My daughter, Suzette was so excited for these will be her dishes to go with her Great Grandmother’s pieces. We did not have any serving bowls of this pattern. With a little cleaning up they will sparkle.
I shall get to keep them and use them for a while.
