Welcome to the 40th Tea Time Tuesday
The Beverage and Bakery Center
Thanksgiving is over, but I wanted to share my new dishes,
 I had for my Thanksgiving Table this year.
View toward the kitchen door.
View of my China Closet 
My husband built and used the old French doors in our 100 year old home.
I used the antique chest which has wooden wheels on it, for a Tea Table

There is a glare on this print, but I love it so much, it means to me, 
Giving Thanks for a meager cup of soup.
Yes, the print is a little high on the wall, I am just getting my dining room back in order the day before. Thanksgiving. Not all is done yet.
View toward family room and kitchen, Yes that is the shelf I made, 
and placed on a dresser, and painted a large crackle finish.
Wow, You can see in my China closet, I see my new gingerbread cookie jar. lol
View from the family room, I have not got the shelves back into the china cabinet,
which holds my collection of Royal Albert Old Country Roses China
Behind the dining room is a small sun porch, my grandchildren usually eat and play there.
Notice I haven’t put my bench back at the table?? Not sure if I am,
 I am liking the change using the chairs I bought at the annual garage sale, all six for $40.00.
I love the centerpiece of sunflowers and gourds in a dough bowl. 
I place it on our wood heater in the family room during the summer months.
The iron piece is my daughter’s, she was using this room last month, now she is in another.
Night view
Place setting
Do you remember these goblets? When I was a young girl, 
Grandma always had goblets on the table for iced tea. 
I found six of different patterns in thrift shops over the years.This is the first time I have used them, 
for they reminded me of going to Grandma’s on Thanksgiving Day.
Can you tell I just love sunflowers? 
BJ at Sweet Nothings you have been wanting to see a better view of the sideboard,
 I built from the reclaimed wood from our walls.
I used  blue milk paint and stain the top and the shelf beneath. I see the cords of the lamps
I usually have wooden boxes full of dishes underneath and you can’t see the cords. lol
 View toward the family room of the buffet. I am holding out for an antique one. lol
The view is from the small sun porch.
So I took the drawers from our old kitchen island turned them upside down and added shelves for dishes.
The bottom part I bought at an auction years ago.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my Thanksgiving Tables, 
I hope to get all my things back into the dining room soon.

  1. Everything is SO Beautiful! I too LOVE sunflowers and these are wonderful, Doesn’t Cracker Barrel get the CUTEST THINGS EVER!!! I LOVE everything you did, the french doors are incredible and I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE that sideboard. The paint makes it POP! SO PERFECT!!!
    Hugs to you and Happy (few days late) Thanksgiving!

  2. Katherine, everything looks so pretty as always.. You certainly have been busy.. I love the pumpkin tureens – did you get them this year?

  3. Beautiful table, Lady K…love how the sunflower dishes go so nicely with the pumpkin plates.
    Your china cupboard is so nice and large. What a great plate rack. Thanks for sharing your dining room!

  4. How very charming and perfectly-put-together! It’s so colorful and just right for Thanksgiving, and everything goes together beautifully.

    I have a dozen of the “Mammaw Goblets” as I call them—eight were hers, with good-sized grapes etched on the outsides, and I can tell the six I’ve bought over the years, for they have a different pattern etched on the glass. On hers, the gold is just a whisper around the rim.

    This was the first year I can remember that I didn’t get them out, for we had house guests and we were all leaving the next day for a long weekend with lots of family in TN—we just kept it simple and homey.

    Your decor is worthy of a magazine spread!


  5. What an amazingly eclectic dinning room you have and I love your creative way to re-purpose different pieces from around your home…and to live in a home that is 100yrs old must be wonderful, all that history and charm…That would have been our first choice here, but alas the old farm house was gone before hubby was even a twinkle…but at least we have the land 🙂

    I enjoyed seeing how you layered your table adding to the vibrate feel of the room.

    Hope your health is doing well..Blessings

  6. Your table is so sweet…I love all the seasonal colors and the sunflowers bowls are just darling. You did a wonderful job! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  7. What a cheery Thanksgiving table setting! I enjoyed your tour and am amazed at all you accomplish, especially with your wood projects made of reclaimed wood from your home. You are very creative with your garage sale finds!

    I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful, and am looking forward to December tea Times with you. Thank-you for hosting this!

  8. Hi Katherine! This is so lovely! Everything looks so cheerful and warm!! You amaze me with all you do! I know you are such a huge blessing to your family!!
    Love and hugs to you, sweetie! Praying for all that concerns you!

  9. G’eve Katherine ~ What a delightful, bright table setting … & what a beautiful side board, memories to enjoy every day.

    Hope your Tsgiving was festive & full.

    Have a beautiful eve ~

  10. Beautiful! I love the orange and yellow tablescape and the green napkins are the perfect touch with those colors!

    My grandmother had those big fat goblets, sure wish I could find some!

    Thanks for hosting!


  11. Lady Katherine, I love you Thanksgiving table. I really like the tablecloth and the sunflower bowls! Stunning, so colorful!
    Hugs, Beth

  12. This is so pretty Lady Katherine. I adore the sunflower bowls. What fun! You could use them in the summer to. Your table is all so pretty and well coordinated! Love it!

    Thanks for hosting,


    p/s please drop by as I’m having a giveaway!

  13. Beautiful! I love the fall colors and the attention to detail. Thanks so much for the link opportunity. I hope I did it correctly. I’m learning…glad you liked the candy cane place card holder. It would be perfect with your Peppermint and Gingerbread Table Setting.

  14. i adore the sunflowers as i am sure you dear lady katherine. the colors are so harmonious. often times when we set our tables the rest of the room just doesn’t seem to fit. your tables are however always conscious of their surroundings. i really love that detail 🙂

  15. O, Lady…thanks so much for the good photo of your beautiful sideboard. I love it.

    I have missed having tea or coffee with you..just been so busy, I haven’t done a tea for awhile until today. I worked on one for sometime this month. 🙂
    Hugs, bj

  16. Great new plates. There’s nothing better than new plates!!!
