Happy Tea Time Tuesday!!

Okay, I know, I'm putting my post up later than what I usually do, but I had done a post yesterday, and didn't want to put up another one on the same day, so I decided to wait until this morning while I was getting my son ready to head off to school to do it :)

So, here is today's little vignette that I set up for you all....I've placed everything on a vintage bed tray, and put it on my wicker loveseat that I have here in my Dining Room...hope you like it :) I'll be on and off the computer today, and will visit everyone at those times....lots of things to do today!



Here is this weeks featured teacup; it is another cup my Ansley, and very similar to one I had shown before, but this one has a very soft pale pink background, whereas the other had a white ground....not sure which one I like better, as they are both so pretty with the gorgeous pink roses!!



In this photo you can see the bottom stamp, which is on both the cup and the saucer, and you can also see the 2 gorgeous roses on the saucer..



...a close-up of the stamp...



...there is one single, but beautiful pink rose inside of the cup...



included in the vignette is this lovely white metal basket (a Goodwill find), that I have placed a bouquet of pretty faux roses in..



My favorite teapot that I had painted pink...love it!! ...



A vintage candlestick with drippy crystals...



And a yummy Chocolate Biscotti (no, I did not make these; bought them at Walmart...good 'ol Wallymart, lol)..



If you saw my post yesterday about the 2 items that I found at Goodwill, well, here is the candleholder all painted white (Dover White, a spray paint)...I think I like it just the way it is, and won't add any Antiquing glaze or anything else.



And here is a pillow that I finished working on late yesterday. It will be listed over on Ebay later this morning. Hope you will get a chance to check it out. I've got several pretty rosey pillows available :)

Happy Teacup Tuesday!
Warm hugs, Laura

As always, Brenda, you've creatd a lovely tea setting for us to enjoy today. LOVE that pink teapot!!! And the teacup is totally gorgeous. And, of course, the little basket and candlestick just add to the beauty.

The candlestick that you painted...I bought a similar-looking one at one of my favorite thrift stores about a month ago. Not quite as tall as yours, though...it was antique gold, and I painted it white.

Your pillow is beautiful.

Have a lovely day.

Hugs,
Patti

BECKY said...

Everything is so lovely! The teacup is gorgeous, and I love all the pink, girly items! Your pillows are beautiful, too. You're a very talented lady!! I've found goodies at GW, too, but it never occurred to me to paint something, if I didn't like the color. Sheesh! Now, I'll remember!!
