Tea Blog-a-thon #3

I must admit that I was a little frustrated on what to post for this week's blog-a-thon at http://gracioushospitality.blogspot.com/. Not that I don't decorate with tea items, which is the theme, but that I have posted my tea items in previous posts. So, this is what I came up with, however, if you are new to my blog and would like to see more of my tea items, just visit previous posts.
My coffee table in the living room almost always has something tea related displayed on it. I usually change this with the seasons and holidays. On the table right now is my new set from Cracker Barrell with the flowers showing. I put the tray on a dish stand for that "different heights look!"
I tried so hard to get this picture of my Sandy Lynam Clough print. But it is on a wall by a door and no matter how I tried, you can sorta see the door in the reflection. I used to do counted cross stitch so this was so wonderful with the combo of tea and stitching. The saying is We Are His Workmanship. This is hanging in what I call MY ROOM.
Above the previous picture is this smaller one. I found this years ago at some little country store. It is one of my favorites. It says Just Because You East Off Paper Plates, Doesn't Mean You Have to Give Up Your Grandmother's China. I do not know who made it. Behind the piece of china is a piece of lace...I think if you click on the picture, you can see the details better.
This is one of the pictures I previously posted. This is also in MY ROOM.

I was so excited this morning. My husband called me in from outside. He was watching our area news and he said you will want to see this. I, being the Positive person I am, said "what's wrong?" Well, the tea room that my friend and I love to go to was on the news. It was so fun to see it on TV and finally show my husband where his money has been going!

Lovely post! I love your Cracker Barrel teaset. We don't have a Cracker Barrel anywhere in our area (several states, not just locally). I have never been to one, but y'all keep showing such pretty tea sets from Cracker Barrel! I love them! And I love that you have a 'girls room' as well. What a special treat to be able to go read a book or spend some alone time in such a pretty space. Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed my visit here.

Everything is so pretty! I love the Sandy Lyman Clough, her things are all wonderful! Don't worry about doing re-posts, there are new people seeing these, so they should be posted again!
