Welcome to the 59th Tea Time Tuesday
This Tuesday I will be celebrating my Birthday. Bluebirds are one of most favorites of all.
I hope you enjoy my Bluebird Tea today, as I hopefully will be celebrating my Birthday with another Tea with my Birthday Dishes.
If you look close out the French Doors you can see my cat, Katie naping, she follows me all around, and never leaves my side when I am outdoors. She’s really my grandchildren’s cat,
but has to come to live on my porch, so I renamed her.
I just love bluebirds, they mean home to me.
My Bluebird Tea
This dish was given to me one year by my friend Maryann, from Sweetwater, Alabama
The blue birds on the branch a gift from my daughter Suzette
Centerpiece: a small bird bath filled with nest, flowers and a bluebird
Back view of the table
Place setting: blue plates from Dollar Tree, husband grandmother’s everyday white plate, and garnet red plate from Walmart. Tea napkins I made, the napkin holder is from a set Christine gave to all the guest at the last Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles Tea Luncheon. This is a group of ladies with websites, and facebook from Mississippi and neighboring states, we all get together and have a Tea Luncheon.
Christine was the hostess for the last Tea Luncheon in her home in Natchez, Mississippi
The tea cup my daughter found in a little shop,and it the same pattern to the dish my friend Maryann gave me.
My vintage embroidered table topper bought years ago at a garage sale
My daughter Suzette found me this wonderful bluebird teapot at another shop, which is the same pattern as the dish, and teacups. I just adore it! Yes, it really a teacup in one, but I love using it for more than one for the bottom cup is really large. My teapot sits on a blue plate, with the strainer. I know I say this many times, I adore using a strainer with my teacup, many think a tea strainer should not be used on the table. Not I!!
I adore straining out the loose leaf tea leaves which have had room to expand in the teapot.
My teapot is usually empty before the leaves can turn the tea to a bitter taste.
The blue birds on the branch sits on the dish filled with pieces of chocolate candy, cookies with icing, chocolate chip dipping cookies, and fancy cakes.
You can see the bluebirds on top of the bluebird house another gift from my friend Maryann.
My daughter, Suzette found my second teacup at another little shop, how happy I was for all the pieces are the same pattern, and all came from different shop, and towns.
I just adore this teapot!
I added bluebirds around the centerpiece, which are from the Dollar Tree
Notice the tea towel on back of the chair it is covered in bluebirds,
I bought this towel on my working/travels, while in Georgia.
I love my napkin rings, Christine! Thank you!
The yellow butterfly, looks like it just flew in and lite on the birdbath
Here you can see the nest in top of the birdbath
Another view of the vintage embroidered topper I used for this Tea
I hope you love my little bluebird tea as much as I do!
Don’t you just love this bluebird teapot, and teacup!
Thank you Suzette
I love the different colors how they blend so wonderful together
Closer view of the tabletop
The bluebirds look like they are hopping all over the table, searching for a crumb
I just loved going around my home looking for things to make this bluebird tea.
Dusk is here, but I was still taking pictures, for I had a lot of teas to get done before I had surgery.
I hope you have enjoyed all the Spring Teas I have shown these last few weeks.
Can you hear the clock chiming?

I just simply love my bluebird tea dishes
I am stilling having a few complications, and still on bed rest. I sit looking out at my red, and pink roses blooming. My white and purple Iris, and many other flowers.
Oh so wishing I could have a Tea with my lovely flowers.
For now I shall enjoy the flowers blooms from the porch.
Thank you all for the prayers for my Daddy and I. Daddy is feeling much better. He’s still on drips of antibiotic around the clock, hopefully soon he will be back to his old self.

As Always Save A Cup Of Tea For Me!
April 1st night this little ram lamb was born to my favorite Ewe Sheep, Sadie
What a surprise we had, for all our other lambs were born late Dec. and Jan.
I have named him Leo, my husband says he an early Birthday Present! He is only a few hours old here.
Just wanted to share a little of our farm life with you.
Hopefully this Tuesday, my Birthday
I shall be feeling well enough to have a luncheon using my rabbit dishes I got for my Birthday from Cracker Barrel with my family to share next week.
I went to the Doctor a few days ago,
he says bed rest, a little sitting up, and start trying to walk a little each day.
I still have several complications, and hoping the will be better soon.
