Tea Treasures

A peek inside my tea room...
Some of my most precious cups on display...
Each cup has a special meaning...and I have dozens!

My wedding cake topper...20 years old!
I married the love of my life...

A beautiful covenant for you and me ~
forever in love we will be...

A glimpse inside my china cabinet...

An exquisite new tea set...
a treasure found at our church's yard sale!
"Victorian Roses" Fine Bone China

It matches my set of "English Roses"
Fine Bone China...
A complete set for eight...inclucdes:
dinner plates, bread plates, salad/soup bowls,
teacups & saucers, salt & pepper shakers, cream pitcher,
sugar bowl, serving bowl, a platter and a darling tea pot!
All for $15.00
The best part for me is that this set belonged to our pastors-
I did not even know this when I purchased it!
Imagine my delight!

The most adorable little tea service!
This was an "I love you" gift from my Mama
that arrived in the mail one day as a surprise!

Tea Pot & Depression Glass...

One of my favorite cups...full of faith!
See that tiny little ceramic cow next to the teacup?
That was the first present my husband (not my husband then)
gave to me. I collected cows and loved brownies!
So my romantic darling topped a rocky-road brownie with this cow!
I was head over heels...and 21 years later...I still get butterflies!

Look at this miniscule glass pitcher!
I purchased this on ebay many years ago...

My tea room...a sanctuary...a place to relax...

Quiet and peaceful ...
The gathering place for many parties...
A glorious place to read and enjoy a cup of tea...
My place for spending time with the Lord
and in His Word...

My post would not be complete without a recipe to share!
Enjoy this simple, quick and easy dessert with lovely cup of tea...

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
