Tea Time



                                                                   Hello everyone,
                                It is time for tea again and I have some treats for you.

                                     Tea from my new tea pot that my husband surprised me with awhile ago.
                                  How about some cookies from my vintage plate cookie stand. My husband made this for me with a special china bit on the drill.
                                                          Pretty-don't you think?







Well ,that was a nice little tea break but now I better get some work done.
I am joining A Delightsome Life ,Rose Chintz Cottage and The Dedicated House for their parties today.

Thank you for stopping in for tea today.

Carolyn

That is so different. It reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland tea-party. I love it's shape and height. Gorgeous. Your cookie stand is different, too. I'm wondering if you made it from your vintage plates. And those pretty little tea-cups are so sweet. Loved it all. Deb

Gorgeous new tea pot Carolyn, it looks like it could match my Butterfly Meadow china from Lennox.
You've made some pretty sweets for tea today, I'd love to sit and sip with you.

Darling teapot, Carolyn! Your hubby has good taste. I think he must be well trained. ;)
Your pretty cookies look very tempting sitting on your tiered stand. A very pretty post. Thank you for joining me for tea today and enjoy your week.

Your new teapot is gorgeous, but what really caught my eye is that wonderful plate stand! What a clever hubby you have to create that for you -- I love each of the plates you used for it, and the tea sweets look wonderful on it! I'll take one of each, please!

Hello Carolyn,
It delights my heart so when I read about Dear Husbands treating their lovely wives to treasures such as this - heartwarming! This is truly a gorgeous teapot - your treats are awfully tempting on that amazing stand - it is beautiful - well done! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
