Tea Time

Another week of peeking into one of my tea displays!
Two sweet angels under a glass cloche!
The "thanking angel" and the "praying angel"
from the Willow Tree Collection.

glass shelves filled with treasures...

a collage of favorite collectibles...
The couple holding the baby is titled "Our Gift"
it was a present from my parents when we were
pregnant with our baby daughter ~ Gabriella.

my wedding china...

willow tree figures...

teapot and teacup set...

glass pedestals...

I love my wedding china...
this teacup is so delicate and beautiful...
Mikasa Fine China
Narumi, Japan

pink depression glass...

This porcelain tree was a gift from
my beloved friend, Starla...
It has all of our names inscribed - it is breathtaking and
the pictures simply do not capture it's true beauty.

The little cream pitcher and sugar bowl was a present
from my mother-in-law ~ I just love this little set.

The big picture...
This magnificent curio was also a gift
from my darling Starla...

a close-up of the delightful collection...

  4. Oh wow! Your curio is a work of art in and of its self. How lucky to have it filled with so many treasures. Take care.

  5. Just popped over from Teacup Tuesday and I'm following you now. What a lovely "tea" blog. I really love those angels! So serene looking, don't you think? I gave my Mum a Willow Tree figurine for Christmas this past year. It's called "Happiness" and is a little girl with bluebirds on her shoulders. Just makes me happy whenever I see it! :)

  6. Hi :) What lovely china pieces you have, and what a beautiful cabinet to showcase them in! Wishing you a Happy Teacup Tuesday!

    Warmest, Brenda

  7. Well, we have the same taste in daughter's names...only mine ends in "e" instead of "a." SUCH a gorgeous name, huh?

    I loved seeing your collection, and it makes me wish I could get my Precious Moments collection out again. It's been packed in boxes for a few years, as in this house, we lost our built-in display case and buying something new just hasn't been in the budget. I think your cabinet is beautiful, and I hope to one day have one like it...filled with my Precious Moments collection.

  9. What a magnificent curio cabinet and what a gorgeous collection that you have showcased inside of it!!
    I love pink depression glass and have quite a bit of it myself!!


  10. Your dishes and displays are so pretty. Seeing your cookie recipe makes me wonder if they are like the delicious cookies from the bakery in my home town. I was thinking of them today and wanting one but it is 500 miles away. They are different pastels with colored sugar sprinkled on the top and melt in your mouth.

  11. Hi: Your wedding china is stunning. I love how you have it displayed. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I can't wait to see what you do next Tuesday. Blessings, Martha

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.
