Welcome to the 44th Tea Time Tuesday
Come into the land of Gingerbread Men and Peppermint Dishes
Every Christmas I have my family for Breakfast
Each year for the third year now, I add pieces to my collection.
My dining room table is full for Mother’s table, which the extra leaf is still missing. Oh but my grandchildren love to line up on the bench. I found six chairs this year at the annual Garage Sale for $40.00.
We shall pull up another bench to put in place of the chairs, so all 10 of us can fit with little elbow room.
I usually have the four grandchildren table set up in the little sun room behind the dining room.
Things are still out place, so the sun room is full, besides my grandchildren love Granna’s Gingerbread Land!
View toward the window and sideboard I built
The buffet on the right with the plate rack above I made and painted Gentleman’s Blue
I used two old drawers from my old kitchen island to make shelves for dishes, the bottom part of the buffet was bought at an auction, hoping to have it a new home soon as I find the buffet of my dreams.
View toward the China Closet my husband built onto an old closet, and added the old French Doors from our home.
On the backs of my chairs hang wreaths with a Gingerbread Man Chef
My daughter Suzette got me these wreaths, from Dollar General last year
The Gingerbread Girls and Chef are from Cracker Barrel
My candy tree I decorate for each season, I added lollipops, from Dollar General this year
The little houses on the tree, I think came from Walmart this year
Cass at That Old House has one of these trees too, she told me last year it is for hanging Christmas Cards!
I bought at annual garage sale for $1.00
The little trains underneath, from Dollar General
My friend Kathy from Mississippi, gave me the Gingerbread Man on top,
I added a Santa hat and a lollipop

The Gingerbread Girl Bowl with the Heart from Burke’s
Peppermint Plates and Desert Dish are from Cracker Barrel
The napkin is from Pier One
The Gingerbread Man napkin holder from Dollar General
The Green Sandwich Pattern Juice cup from Thrift Stores
I bought my daughter Jennifer boxes of Green Sandwiches pieces while traveling/working
So today even though she was not here I had a little piece of her heart with me.
The Gingerbread Man Cup and all the other dishes are from the stores as above
Gingerbread House on left from Bath and Body

Tablecloths and Scarfs on the tables, buffet, sideboard are from Walmart, Burke’s, and Dollar Tree
All the peppermint candles are from Dollar General or Walmart
View toward the China Closet
See Christine, here is where I need another window to make a door,
for my China Closet
Old Dresser and shelf I built from reclaimed wood from our walls
I gave it large crackle finish, I use it as a Beverage Center
Here you may have Hot Tea or Hot Chocolate
The Tea Sets are from Cracker Barrel
The Creamer and two sugar,(from Cracker Barrel) in the middle on a cake plate from Walmart
The sign says Grandma’s Treats
I used ruffled chargers from Walmart under the Tea Pots
This old dresser is set up for Sweets, the silver Kiss, from Walmart,
holds chocolate to dip marshmallows.
The basket, and it’s lid is standing up is a pie carrier: from Cracker Barrel
I forgot to move the painting on the side of the old dresser,
was hoping Hubby would get around to hanging them.
On the sideboard are three cake plates and servers I used cake plates and bowls to stand these on.
Gingerbread Men Cake Plates on each side, are sitting on this peppermint bowl, see the little gingerbread men feet? From Cracker Barrel
The Gingerbread Men Cake Plates and servers are from Dollar General
In the middle the cake plate sits on a peppermint cake plate, from Cracker Barrel
These were used for bacon, eggs, and toast
For Gloria, another close up you want of the Gingerbread ornaments that hang on the three tier server
I hope you enjoyed our Gingerbread Tablescapes we do every Christmas,
It so much fun to see the children’s joy in their eyes, in my Gingerbread land!
