Tablescape Thursday - Tea Time


It's snowing in Dallas! I've got about 4 inches in my backyard, and it's still coming down. It's cozy weather (in my humble opinion), and all I want is a good book and a simple tea:


 

  

  

 

Tray:  gift from a dear friend
Teapot: gift from my mother
Lovebirds:  Dollar Tree
Teacup & saucer, napkin ring:  eBay finds
Napkin:  Amazon.com

Your tea tray is lovely, Lori, especially the sweet tea pot from your mother. A special cup of tea is a gift to ourselves.

I sure wish I had some pretty teacups like yours, Lori! Everything looks so soft & lovely...very delicate & feminine.
I'm doing afternoon tea for this Saturday's postings so great minds were on the same track.

Sorry about the snow. Now you see what I've had for THE PAST 3-4 MONTHS!!! I sick of it. :p
