Tea Blog-a-thon #4

This week at http://gracioushospitality.blogspot.com/ for our 4th installment to the tea Blog-a-thon, we are to show and talk about handmade stitched items we use with our tea items. This has been a little bit of a challenge as I really don't have many handmade items. I have many tablecloths and napkins, but they are store bought.
I have this tea pillow. It is embroidered and patched around the edges. Free advice with your tea...hmmmm, free advice?!?
This napkin and 3 others like it I purchased at an antique store in Payson AZ on one of our weekend jaunts. They are not in the best condition, but they are small and nice for a ladies dessert or brunch.
These beautiful napkins were a house warming present to us from a dear family friend. She has one of those magical embroidery machines. The "ladder" effect on the K is cut work. I must admit, I haven't actually used these for eating. Shame on me for that, but sometimes that save it for a special occasion idea is hard to overcome!
Ok, many of you have been waiting. Here is that new tea set my husband sent me. I finally got it out on the table. It is very beautiful.
The doilie under it is quite large. It was made by a church member when we celebrated our 25th anniversary - 10 years ago! I like how cream and white look layered together!
I was wanting to get this post in for this week. I will be taking a blogging break and will return on the 17th or 18th of April. I must admit that I am going to miss reading all your blogs, but I promise, I will get caught up! Have a great week...
Ceekay Have A Nice Day
