SIMPLE WHITE TEA

Welcome to the 53rd Tea Time Tuesday     
 Today Tea is Simple, all whites looking out my back French Doors
I want to Thank all of you for making Tea Time a dream come true for one year.
I shall be in tests this week, for my up coming 46th surgery.
I will be be having Tea Time Tuesday auto post each week,
 while I am in surgery, and while recovering.
I have not been able to visit much, I have had grandchildren, and my Daddy is having open heart surgery this Wednesday. With lots of Doctor visits for myself. I appreciate all your lovely comments. Yes, I do read them all, I will change over next week to where you will have to type in the letters,
 to leave a comment. Know I shall be reading them all.
I have had many ask for an address to send cards and happy’s to. Which is so sweet of you all.
This address is the old general store/cafe we bought, 
and soon as I am back on my feet, we shall open a Tea Room .

Leesburg Mercantile
Lady Katherine
289 Hwy 481
Pelahatchie, Mississippi  39145

I hope you enjoy my Simple White Tea
 As Spring approaches it time to bring out the white again.
This Tea could be for a Mother and Daughter,
 or Grandmother and Granddaughter Tea.

My Granddaughter’s hat on the back of the chair

On this chair sit my white hat, notice I used doilies on the chair seats
I love using this chrome teapot warmer, for it goes with everything.
My teapot sit on a charger, I do love to use a charger or 
tray underneath my teapots, in case of spillage. 

I love my sterling silver strainer, some think a strainer shouldn’t be used at the Tea Table.
Oh, but I adore using one, as I use loose leaf tea, 
and loose leaf tea needs room to expand as it steeps.
My teapot is empty before the leaves have a chance to turn bitter.
Place Setting
I have used the cups many times, this is the first time I have used the chargers, which are the same pattern. The plate is smaller than a dinner plate, and larger than a desert plate. The plate and bowl are my husband’s Grandmother’s everyday dishes.
Flatware is my Renaissance Reproduction pattern 
Cup, Saucer, and Charger I bought a few years ago from TJ Max 
The 12×12 Tea napkins, I made
Tablecloth was a garage sale find many years ago
My Tea Set is from Ross

My three tier holds, my husband’s Grandmother’s everyday dishes from long ago.
I used faux ivy and white hand painted roses, which are shower curtain holders.


I wanted to show you the view out my French Doors!
I am very lucky to see this view every day from my 100 year old Craftsman Bungalow.
My chickens, now layinga dozen eggs day

My gulf coast native sheep
My ram is in another pasture

Lambs, Bella and Hope playing with Garfield 
Bella was born the December 26th, 2010
Hope was born on Christmas Day 2010

Gulf Coast Native Sheep ready for feeding



Bella and Hope are so cute

My lambs, Hope, Pansy Lee, and Bella
Pansy Lee is in the middle, she was born just a few weeks after Bella and Hope
Pansy Lee was born a morning after, I had just lost a Ewe and her lamb the night before
I use to have a 100 plus sheep, another breed, and I have never lost an Ewe and Lamb in birth.
Pansy came here so tiny, and needing my help

  6. Hi Lady Katherine, I’m dropping by for the first time due to a recommendation from a friend, Kathy of A Delightsome life. I’ve been hosting a Tuesday tea party for some weeks now, without realizing that other lovely ladies were doing the same thing! I’m so glad Kathy told me about your party. I followed a link at Natasha’s. Your tea set is just stunning! I love the all white with green ivy.

    And I adore chickens. The year before last I had 35 chickens..all with names. We were getting a lot of eggs! How I miss them. :o)

    Thanks for hosting this lovely tea party.

    Concentrate on healing, may your heart be happy,

  27. Katherine, this tea table is exquisite. I love the way the sunlight is shining on the pretty whites on the table. Shower curtain hooks – you clever lady! You have been and will remain in my prayers. It was so great to talk to you on the phone the other day. I hope we’ll be doing that again soon. My prayers go with you and your medical providers at the hospital. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie

  29. What a beautiful tea table, in all of it’s white-ness. So crisp and fresh. I’m sure it’s a sign that all will go well with your surgery. That’s a lot of surgeries thay you’ve had to endure. I’m saying a little prayer for you that you’ll be back to setting beautiful tea tables for us in no time. And how exciting to think of setting up your own tea shop. Lots of good things to think of and plan as you’re on the mend.

    Thanks so much for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  30. I think you may be in the hospital but just wanted to say that I have linked to you this week. I have to be gone early in the morning as Mr. Sweet is going in the hospital for a test. Here’s my link, if you have your tea. Would you be so kind as to link me up? I appreciate it. If you don’t have a tea this week, I’ll see ya next time/
    Sure hope all is going good with you and with your dad.
