My grandchildren are so excited about both tables!


This week a lovely gift from Laurie and Michael Lee, came in the mail.
Michael Lee West’s new book, Gone With A Handsomer Man, with a lovely inscription to me. 
I have been laying on the old 1950’s turquoise sofa in the office at the store/cafe.
Reading away, it hard to lay the book down, for you want to know what is going to happen next to Tiny one of the characters in this wonderful book.
I am slowly recovering, but looking forward to the future, I believe to come.
Thank you all for your prayers!

Happy Easter

Blue Willow Tea Tray

Welcome to the 60th Tea Time Tuesday
Today is Blue Willow Tray just for me! 
As I recover from surgery
A lovely pink rose from my garden.
Oh, yes there is my hospital bed on the left showing up.
I cropped the photos but got locked out of one of my accounts until these will have to do.
Legend of Blue Willow
Long ago a Chinese Emperor lived in a magnificent pagoda, with his beautiful daughter. 
She loved her father’s clerk, but was promised in marriage to a wealthy merchant. 
When the young couple eloped, the emperor ordered them killed. The God’s spared them by
 turning them into the two doves you see flying on the Blue Willow dinnerware.   
Place setting on the tray with one of my favorite magazines, Southern Lady
The silverware is odd and end pieces found at garage sales.
View toward the mantel, and my spinning wheel, yes I love to spin wool, cotton, and linen. 
I now have nine Gulf Coast Sheep and their fiber is wonderful. 
See my last post for a photo of my lamb born last week.
Tea Napkin made by me
My cousin Deborah gave me this old cup years ago.
Back in my early 20’s I thought I didn’t want any country things, and would go modern. 
I had a garage sale and sold many things, including my old Blue Willow set of dishes,
 which had the teacups and not the mugs with it. I have regretted it many times.
Within a few months I came to my senses, and purchased a set of old Blue Willow.
 This set has mugs with it and not as old of a set as mine was. 
I was happy to have Blue Willow back in my home!!

 All the things including the tray came from a garage sale, 
even the fabric and lace I made the Tea napkin out of. 
with the exception of the white scarf and magazines.
The white scarf across the tray, I purchased at the gift shop at Rosalee, in Natchez, Mississippi
The scarf is really to cover your bread with.

 This view the light came out will great. For my parlor is dark.
The tray is a $5:00 garage sale find and don’t you just love the pockets on th side for book?
After Tea it turns into a little desk with the top lifting up just enough to write or read on.
 Back view of the tray
 Bird’s eye view

My Blue Willow Tea Set, I bought at a garage sale 25 years ago, for $15.00.
The lady said she had had it 15 years ,
and had brought it home in her lap on an airplane,from Holland. 
I do have the oil/vinegar, and salt and pepper shakers that came with the set.
This little bell was one of the last gifts from my Mother. I cherish it dearly! 
She gave each of the girls one, and and I happen to get two lucky me!
 Or lucky for my granddaughters! lol
I am still on bed rest, and doing very little, will see my Doctor later this week.
 I have been sleeping just about around the clock. My daddy is running a temp., and not feeling well, since his open heart surgery.  I have a sick  six year old grandson, whom lives with me,
 that may have strep throat again, so he will be off to the doctor today. Hope soon we are all well! Our Old General Store/Cafe is looking a lot better., hoping to get it open soon.
Then we shall work on the Tea Room.
 I have spent a few days there with my husband, sleeping on the sofa.

BLUEBIRD TEA

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
Just adorable!
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? 
It time to announce the winner of the lovely book of poetry Anthesis,
 by Muse
 Congratulations the winner is Kathy B. of  Spot On Cedar Pond
Please email me your address, at ladykatherineteaparlor@gmail.com
 I shall send you your lovely book Anthesis 
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. 
I have received books, cards and emails, and so many lovely comments of encouragement this week! Thank You all so much, and for joining me for Tea Time Tuesday.

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.
