Welcome to the 58th Tea Time Tuesday  
Spring is surely here! The birds are singing, and daffodils blooming.
The days are so much warmer, I have been sitting on the porch soaking in the sunshine! 
My hens are laying and chicks to be hatched soon. Today I decided to add birds and chicks to my Tea
Centerpiece: of daffodils in a green pail, my little creamer and sugar bowl with chick salt and pepper shakers 
My yellow bird teapot is from Hobby Lobby, sitting on my favorite wire Teapot warmer,
underneath my husband’s grandmother’s everyday plate, with a a green plastic plate
with little yellow bird chick candy
Yes, you will usually see a tea strainer on my table, many believe it not a place for the table.
Not I, I love using my tea stainer over my cup as I pour my tea. I brew my loose leaf tea in the teapot to let the leaves have room to expand. The tea leaves left sittting in the teapot will make your tea bitter, 
but my Tea is usually gone before then and another pot of tea is brewed.
For each place setting I used my husband’s grandmother’s everyday white plate, with a chick dish in the center with a green plastic plate as a charger, as this is an informal Tea.
Green napkins from Ross
Chick flatware holders from Cracker Barrel
White teacups from thrift store, a gift from my daughter Suzette
My white tablecloth from a garage sale many years ago,  I think paid around $1:00 for.
View out the French Doors, my husband cut ash limbs,
 and made the curtain rods for my Native American Indian decor family room.
On the chairs I bought for $2:50 each from the Annual Garage sale,I placed yellow placemats 
Many ask are my Tea;s in my home, yes they are. I live in a 100 year old Craftsman Bungalow, which we are remodeling and probably always will be. People laugh and say if I do not like a wall there it goes. They are right, lol We change and if I live with it for a while and decided I do not like it it goes. lol
For a three tier stand I choose my husband’s grandmother’s white everyday dishes, I never knew when I took them out of the cabinet and washed them up, I would love using them so much. They are smaller than a dinner plate, and larger than a desert plate, and go so well with many Teas.
I have a 64 piece set of white dishes I barely ever use, for I love using my husband’s grandmother’s dishes.
I also used Melamie yellow scalloped desert plates on top of the white plate, and a small bowl on top holding a chick in a little flower pot, holding a sign DREAM!

Just adore these chick salt and pepper shakers

The sun is shining brightly! So refreshing to see all the flowers blooming and trees budding outdoors.
I just love this whimsical Teapot!
Out the French Doors you can see a few of my chickens, in the background.

I added little candy yellow birds to each teacup saucer
Doesn’t this just say Spring is here!

Next week I shall announce the winner of the Muse’s new book of poetry, Anthesis
I am so happy to give this lovely book of poetry,
 which goes so well while having a cup of Tea, 
in celebration of one year Anniversary of Tea Time Tuesday.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my little bird chick tea today, as much as I loved seeing Spring arrive.
This Tea would also be great for Easter. 
Next week is my birthday, I will be having a bluebird tea to show you. Hopefully I shall be having a Tea Luncheon with my family with my rabbit Birthday dishes my husband bought me last year on my Birthday:  from Cracker Barrel.  I do love the rabbit pattern Cracker Barrel has this year and it blends lovely with  my last year’s pattern.  I did buy the Tea Set of this years pattern. I am hoping to get the platter and a four more of the egg bowls. I would love to have the dinner plates, but if not I shall use my off white chargers.
As I am still not able to get out since my surgery, and still resting in bed.
 Looking forward to feeling stronger soon, and opening our Old General Store/Cafe!
Hoping by summer, I will have the Tea Room up and going at the Store, 
for we have many rooms to add to our dreams in the store.

  1. Your table practically sings spring!! I love the gorgeous daffodils and cute little chicks. And I like the little feet on your creamer and sugar! Yellow and green is one of my favorite color combinations! So cheerful!

  2. I think the tea table is just beautiful. I love the bright colors and the attention to detail. It just makes me want to be there and have a cup of mint tea with you. I think the setting is perfect with the view out of the french doors.
    Sure hope you are feeling stronger every day.

  3. Your tea is just beautiful. I love the pretty teapot…everything looks fabulous.
    Take care, get strong and then you can open your tea room. How exciting!!

  7. Oh Lady Katherine..I just LOVE your lovely table settings! I especially adore the yellow flower plates. I really like Cracker Barrel too. My first tea pot came from there. :o) Thanks for hosting tea even when you are recovering and I do hope you get well soon. You will like my post I think. You are a perfect example of what a lady can do when she sets her mind to it..even when not feeling well.

    Blessings and prayers,
