I want to Thank all of you for making Tea Time a dream come true for over a one year.

 Yes, I do read them all.
I am still battling some health issues, but I do plan to win. Thank you all for your prayers, 
the store/cafe is open and doing well, I am doing what I can to help.
 I am late getting this post up again, Thank you for understanding!!!
Today I am showing you a Tea I did early this year, hoping you will love seeing it again.
I know I have! lol 
 
I hope you enjoy my Simple White Tea
 As Summer is ad-mist it time to bring out the white again.
This Tea could be for a Mother and Daughter,
 or Grandmother and Granddaughter Tea.
What ever Tea Time you could want.
 
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.

White & Silver Winter’s Tablescape

Welcome to My Cup Of  Tea 
January is National Hot Tea Month
 
ON THIS WINTER SNOWY DAY 
A SILVER AND CRYSTAL TABLE SETTING
 
I am reposting this Tablescape I did last year, I see a lot of changes in my dining room, 
and hopefully more to come.
Why not add a pot of Hot Tea, and cups and saucers to your Table
 
 
As I look out my door,  at the  lovely site of snow
Yes, there sit my old claw foot bath tub.  I had hubby to bring out to be refinished.
 
I decided to add silver balls to my Early American Prescut Crystal, with silver trees

I didn’t get this one straight! My camera was acting up, as was my hands with the tablecloth

I ordered a new one last week, it was suppose to be here last Friday, I sure hope it comes today! 

Looking for UPS! lol My Cannon I have loved is on a recall list. I sure hope they get it fixed!

Notice the different chairs in my dining room? Now I have the wooden ones. Look at my last post of my Gingerbread Men and Peppermint Tablescape, You can see the difference. Just click here.

I soon hope to move the bench, which my grandchildren love to sit at, 
but I want to have just my chairs for a different look.

 

 
 I love the silver balls in the Crystal Bowls with the silver trees

 

 
My daughter found a few old pieces of this flatware, I loved it so.
 While looking in Walmart last summer
I came upon a reproduction of this flatware, which had fell in love with.
I bought two sets! 
 

 

Renaissance is the name of this lovely flatware that won my heart.

If you look close you might just see the lovely stars on the Crystal
I have a huge collection lot of pieces never shown
Today as I show you my table setting.
 Many people come into my website just to see some of my rarest finds
The glasses, and plates are rare finds
Center Piece with the candelabra I got for $1.00
 
 
As you leave today, here a wonderful view as the snow follows the creek back into the woods
These pictures were in the morning by afternoon we had over six inches.
Now they say were going to have snow again in a day, I wanting Spring to come, 
but looks like snow loves Mississippi this Winter. 
 
 
This Christmas Day 2010,  Snowflakes fell most of the day,
a baby lamb was born  this very day.
Her name is Hope
 

Hope

 
Then December 26, beneath the starlight another lamb, was born her name is Bella

My Gulf Coast Sheep are from Dempsey Perkins’ Gulf Coast Sheep bloodline, which goes back to the 1800. These sheep are on the critical list. I am so excited to have Mr. Perkins Ram from his farm, I toured his farm and fell in love with this breed of sheep. Mr. Perkins died just 3 months after he took me on a tour of his farm.  At the time I begged him to sell me some lambs, but he had not picked out the ones he wanted to keep. I found my Gulf Coast Sheep in the newspaper, about an hour from our home in a place called Sunrise. I knew they were registered, but not that the Ram Quincy was from Dempsey Perkins’ farm. 
I was so happy to have not only the Ram but four Ewes from his bloodline.

As all know, I love roosters, when I was at the farm Dempsey Perkins’ wife and daughter showed me the wool, spun and carded. I bought some wool to spin.
Then we went to the house, where I feel in love with her Rooster Rug. 
Mrs. Perkins told me where to go in Quincy, Louisiana to purchase it, 
I bought two Rooster Rugs, I’m sure you have seen in my kitchen.
 I have an old walking spinning wheel and Mr. Perkins, one of the nicest men you could know, was to make me new parts for my Walking Wheel. But it was not to be as I was traveling/working. 
By the time I had got home he had already passed. 

I shall always remember the lovely day I spent with the Perkins on their wonderful farm!

Ewe is a ( female sheep)
Ram is a ( male sheep)

on the left Sunrise is two years old,  she is Bella ( Dam) Mother
Trixie, Hope’s Mother is not in this photo for she is up in the barn with Hope.
My ram tore down the feeder, So he is now in another pasture at the back of the barn. 
Soon we hope to have more lambs running around, as all these Ewe’s are to give birth soon. As Sunrise did the night this photo was taken. Joline maybe expecting twins.

My two lambs, Hope and Bella love to run, jump, and play together,
and I love watching from the French Doors!
Thank You for letting me share not only my Table Setting, but my love of sheep on my farm.
