Tea Time Tuesday – Out of a suitcase……..

SmLogo[3]

It’s Tea Time Tuesday ! Please visit Barb at http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/  such a kind  and gracious hostess ! You might have a spot of tea with some others out in blog land !

I had to purchase another teapot….I only had 1 (yes ONE) to my name. I bought this little beauty for $5.99 at Ross and everything else I had around the house…I would love to get more teapots but, I haven’t found any…

The quilt top underneath the suitcase is a top which I sewed myself (but,yet to finish) is a Buggy Barn pattern.

I wrapped my faux daisies in newspaper and tied it with a ribbon –Yes, ladies I did this “photo shoot” on the cheap side…lol !

I went a little crazy with the pictures (did I mention I love to take pictures….) I am still “borrowing” my hubby’s Fathers Day gift – shhh it is still a secret….while I save my money for a really nice one…(for myself, lol)

I think I will add one of these photos to a collage but can’t decide which one I like the best….which one do you like the best ?

Kammy! What beautiful pics! I think I like the one with the fence in the background, then the one with the sunlight coming through the wagon wheel. Now, on to your gorgous new teapot!!! You lucky duck for finding that! So ya' wanna know a secret? I bought two pitchers in that same pattern...a small one and a larger one. Thet are my inspiration for my guest bathroom re-design. This past week in Asheville, I found two matching plates. Yoohoo! This meme is too much fun. Thanks so much for joining in. The photos are just lovely! Blessings, Barb

What a fun "teascape"! I love all the pictures, so it's hard to pick a favorite, but maybe the one with the sun shining through. Beautiful teapot, and what a great deal!

Hi Kammy! Love the teapot, I have a pitcher in the same pattern. I'll vote for the 2nd to last photo. Or the second from the top. Or the 4th. I don't know, they are all so good!

I know it's new, but it has an heirloom look to it. Really neat.

Oh girl-These are pictures after my own heart! LOVE THE WAGON WHEEL. The picnic basket with the tea set looks incredible. It should be on a Hallmark card! Love it! I am behind visiting, so I am checking out all of your posts, and this is the one I decided to comment on. Love your tablescape for summertime, your pictures are gorgeous too! I have the Canon XT, and love it. We were able to trade in American Express points for ours. Our next rewards purchase will be the zoom lens.

Have a great Wednesday!
