Welcome to the 23rd Tea Time Tuesday
The Beverage Center 

 Today I am sharing with you a day spent with my Granddaughter Hannah
We had Tea, We Baked, We Played!

When my Grandchildren come they think we have to have Tea for any meal or snack.
On this morning I almost forgot to take pictures

Hannah at Breakfast Tea
She found her place setting from the Tea that is from my Tea Time Tuesday Logo
and set it in front of her while Breakfast was being cooked.
She also added the doilies on the back of the bench
Have Tea With Me
As I look at these photos, 
I realize just how much has changed in my dining room and the sun porch behind.
Can’t wait to show you all my changes!

Hannah says I am through with Breakfast, 
Granna Please May I have another cup of Tea!  
I would like a little more Tea, Granna aka Lady Katherine
Instead of Water!
Teach Me! 
Granna is this the way to hold my Teacup?
I do love my Tea, just like Granna
 Oh No,my Tea is almost gone!
Granna, Please more Tea!
See my Tea is all gone!
Rock With Me!

Fairy Tea Party at Crescent Bend House

Welcome to the 21st Tea Time Tuesday

Today we will be taking a trip to Knoxville, Tennessee
Where each year The Dogwood Arts Festival is held at Historical Crescent Bend House.
My Guest, Julia lives in Wears Valley, Tennessee,  a small community nestled in a valley near Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The last two years Julia has entered a Tablescape in the Dogwood Festival Tablescapes Contest. Each participate is asked to pick out a painting hanging in Historical Crescent Bend House,in Knoxville, Tennessee. The participates then has to create a dining experience depicting what each person sees in their selected painting. 
Julia emailed me back in the Spring, asking if I had any advice I could give her on doing a Fairy Tea Party. Julia explained what she was creating.  I told Julia Your Fairy Garden Tea 
is going to be lovely, you do not need any tips from me. 
As you can see:
 Julia’s Lovely Fairy Garden Tea
Just look at the lovely pink shawl Julia draped on the chair! The tablecloth is so lovely!
A few bunnies peaking out from amidst the potted plants to greet the Fairy!
The painting Julia chose for Fairy Garden Tea is:
Appalachian Springs 
by Artist Wayne Blankenship

Julia’s Fairy Garden won 1st place in the Floral Division
Notice the painting is hanging the background
This photo was taken in Julia’s home, 
I wanted you to see Julia’s Lovely Tea Set 
she used in this Fairy Garden Tea 
I just love the iron gate to the right of the Tablescape,
all the colors blend so beautifully

Julia’s created a beautiful Dogwood Tree with in this lovely Fairy Garden Tea!
Historical Crescent Bend House/Armstrong-Lockett House
and W.P. Toms Memorial Gardens
Built in 1834 by Drury Paine Armstrong, Crescent Bend was once a 900 acre working farm.
Crescent Bend House is one of the South’s finest house museums,

 which hold my white Great Gathering Dishes.
 This shelf was stained and did hang above my stove.
Story goes hubby threw it out, after a few months in the rain, with me looking everywhere for it. 
Hubby told me it was in the junk pile, he helped  nail it back together. 
I did a brown and white crackled finish on this now hutch, which I use to serve Beverages.

I have to interrupt this Rooster Party,
 for I have little chicks hatching out of the blue and green eggs.

My large Rooster, I bought years ago from Landrum’s, just outside of Laurel, Mississippi.
Where I use to demonstrate weaving on my loom, and spinning on my spinning wheel.

My daughter bought the egg holder from a garage sale, I think it use to be a spice rack. 
A little sign I painted years ago.
Two smaller roosters one each side, and the white Roosters are salt and pepper shakers.

Can you tell which eggs are real or faux?
The two real eggs are by each corner of the sign I painted years ago.
