My Miracle
I would like to share through my journey of Breast Cancer, I am Thankful for all the friends I have and have made through my website. For all the lovely gifts, cards, and food I have received.
Most of all through this journey, my husband Terry, has been my caretaker. Being a caretaker with all we have been through he has stayed at my side, not only taking care of me, but running the household, being my nurse, my hair dresser, my cook, my maid, my list could go on and on. The caretaker job is very hard, demanding, and burdensome. We have stayed close and he is my best friend as I am his, as we have known each other since we were 8 years old. Childhood Sweethearts and married for almost 33 years. I want to hold my glass up and give Cheers to my husband for all the things he has gone through with me. He deserves the Husband of The Years Award!
 If had one wish I would give him something so special, that he has dreamed of, 
yet he has not been able to do, for he has stayed at my side. 
I am Thankful for My Wonderful Simple Man Makin It Do!
I am so honored to share with you a special event,
 Beverly will be having on August 28, 2010.  
Beverly will be joining a MIRACLE PARTY,
 to celebrate Collette’s Recovery and Miracle Makeover sponsored by Guide Post!  
A Lovely Background of my Grandmother’s Roses, with a Lovely Table Set for Tea 
I hope you enjoyed my Garden Tea for my Special Guests!

A LITTLE TRAY OF TEA

Welcome to the 24th Tea Time Tuesday
This afternoon I decided to fix a tray of Tea, to enjoy out on the porch.
 I did not add flowers for,
 I sat on the porch looking out at my Cottage Garden,
 full of flowers, butterflies, and humming birds.

When setting a simple pretty tray for Tea, just seems to melt the day away. 
How relaxing it is to sit and sip a cup of Tea.
Solitude! Can be lovely!
I used my Royal Albert Teapot in One: bought on Ebay 
 I love this green metal tray, bought two from a shop for $5.00 each 
I added a simple white cloth dinner napkin
Tea Tip
Using a cloth on a tray, is not a great idea for any Teapot or Teacup can spill onto the cloth. 
See the Tea stain just below the teapot?
Hence the reason for no cloth needed on a tea tray.  
Saucers Pattern: Royal Swirl Fine China, bought from a Thrift store
I have a 4 place setting: bought from thrift store for $15.00 
A saucer of chocolate chip cookies, tea biscuits and strawberry preserves.
A Simple Tray Of Tea Just For Me!
The Teapot in One has a large cup which sits underneath the teapot.
Drinking my favorite Vanilla Creme Tea:  from Vintage Tea

I will be having a $100.00 Dollar Gift Card from CSN Stores to Give Away August 23rd, 2010

On this morning I almost forgot to take pictures

She found her place setting from the Tea that is from my Tea Time Tuesday Logo
and set it in front of her while Breakfast was being cooked.
She also added the doilies on the back of the bench
Have Tea With Me
As I look at these photos, 
I realize just how much has changed in my dining room and the sun porch behind.
Can’t wait to show you all my changes!

Hannah says I am through with Breakfast, 
Granna Please May I have another cup of Tea!  
I would like a little more Tea, Granna aka Lady Katherine

Sunflowers, Roosters and Iced Tea Party

Welcome to the 22nd Tea Time Tuesday
Join me today for Iced Tea, Roosters, and Sunflowers
Some of my Favorite Things!
I have used a lot of different dishes and items to make this Tablescape mix/match
I love how it turned out.
There is a Party Going On at Barb’s August 6th 
You still have time to join in on the fun!
 My is in this view, it was a church pew, my husband cut down
View facing my sideboard I built from the reclaimed wood from my walls,( I now have sheet rock) and  the sideboard with my favorite Gentleman’s Blue milk paint, and stained the top and the shelf underneath, which has boxes of dishes stored.
The print on the left side is a French Bistro from Hobby Lobby
The wine chalk board on the right is from a garage sale
Centerpiece: Sunflowers, Lanterns, Metal Rooster,
 and Susan’s famous Target salt and pepper shaker white birds
Notice my  Flatware here
Through the door way is a little side porch, I am making a little sun room.
Close up of Centerpiece
View of Table facing my China Closet
The chairs are odd and end chairs from yard sales, I got my Mother’s Table without any chairs. I now have a lot going on different in my dining room. A set of six wooden chair all alike, but I not ready to give up my bench just yet. My grandchildren love to sit on it. Hope to show you soon the changes going on in my dining room of my 100 year old Craftsman’s Bungalow.

Sunflowers from Hobby Lobby, the metal rooster begging to be in a close up
My flatware is Renaissance Reproduction Pattern from Walmart
Close up of the sideboard centerpiece, I love my bee food cover found at a thrift store, 
wish I had a few more!
I just love the light from the lanterns!
My Red Toile Rooster Tablecloth bought at a yard sale
Buffet Centerpiece:
Chef holding a wooden sunflower I cut from wood and painted years ago
Sideboard Centerpiece:
Lanterns, bowls, metal black rooster, Chef Rooster to count the daily lay of our hens, 
with a sign I painted years ago.
View of the table, with my buffet I used an iron bottom with a wooden top which has drawers, I then added blue shelves from my old island, turned them upside down and added shelves for dishes.Underneath sets a bench I made from the reclaimed wood from our walls.
This piece I am thinking of taking out, replacing it with a huge buffet with doors on the bottom with lots of storage room, and shelves on the top for dishes. 
I then could clean off the sideboard bottom and the bench underneath.
What do you think? Do I need to replace it?
The lanterns have different colored glass panels, 
which give off a different shade of light from each sides
I just love using the lanterns with my black round woven place mats. Notice my blue bird
Notice I used different birds and sunflowers at each place setting
I need to collect some small Roosters, but I do love my Birds
Notice the water glass and Iced Tea Glass is Early American Prescut Crystal 
I have a set of twelve of the Iced Tea Glasses, these glasses are a Rare Find
In this view you can see my China Cabinet, which I have to replace the glass, 
I added too many dishes and some of the glass shelves got broken. 
Notice my lamps are also Early American Prescut Crystal
View of table facing family room, the chargers used are red with rooster chargers used on each end. 
I didn’t have enough rooster chargers so I mixed matched to get this 8 place setting
My Sunflower plates, from TJMax last year
Did I say I just adore Sunflowers and Roosters!
Place Setting with a brown bird, rooster charger, and black place mat. 
This hutch is a chest, with a shelf I built, then I did a crackled finish on it.
I use this as a beverage center
Beverage Center:
Aluminium Ice bucket, Early American Prescut Crystal Tea Pitcher
Sunflowers in an Early American Prescut Crystal Vase
Wire Rooster always holds soft peppermint
A white Teapot, just in case I want a cup of Hot Tea!
Notice the star on the Early American Prescut Crystal Pitcher
I hope you enjoyed my Party today, as much as I did making this Tablescape!
