Tea for Two


a walk in the countryside: tea for two


I had planned on a table for two and serve dessert.  One night, I cooked some delicious lemon bars and specifically pointed out the really pretty ones that were not to be eaten….you know to get a good picture!  LOL!  The next day I went to town with my husband and when we got back there were no more lemon bars!!!  Hunter had eaten all of them!  I know he was the culprit because Savannah doesn’t like lemons!  So my table is minus a dessert!


a walk in the countryside: silver tea set 


I used my silver tea set that my mom gave to me.  Her sister gave it to her almost 50 years ago!

The pretty tea cups are from Goodwill. They were even in a pretty box lined with satin.

I love the curve of the saucers.


a walk in the countryside: candlewick dish


The candlewick candy dish is also from GW.  To determine the difference between candlewick and boopie glass, click here to see my previous post.

You can see a little of the etched glass under the strawberries.

The candlesticks were a recent Christmas gift.  They are made by Godfinger.

Here’s a little closer look.  Also the tablecloth is actually a shawl, another GW find.

  10. A pretty table and I adore those teacups! My DH NEVER eats anything unless he asks first -- he knows photos come first!

  11. Very funny story Tammy! I have taught my hubby to ask first, just in case things are planned that he knows nothing about! Oh to have to ask in your own home! :) Your post on the candlewick glass was very interesting and now I'm going to check my dishes! Linda
