Lovely Pinks for Tea Tuesday

Welcome to another Tea Tuesday ladies! I missed doing it last week, as I had some painting to do, and have been super busy creating lots of pretty Christmas Stockings for my Etsy Shoppe. If you haven't taken a look, please be sure to do so, as I have pictures and links to each one listed over on my sidebar, and I have a special going on until October 31st, for every stocking purchased you will only pay $2.50 for U.S. Priority Mail shipping, with each additional stocking purchased paying only $1.00 more for shipping. Okay, now back to my Tea post, lol :)

Below is this week's vignette, all done with some pretty items in my favorite color...PINK!!



Here is a close-up of the items chosen for my little tea setting...



The teacup featured this week is a lovely cup done in shades of soft shabby pink and creamy white with sweet little pink roses..



How pretty are these roses...so sweet & delicate..



Love the swirls on the saucer...



Here is the stamp on the bottom of the saucer...



A couple of cookies made by me....yes, you read that correctly...I made them!! And they are YUMMY!! They are called "Kooky Cookies" that are made using a cake mix. You will find the recipe for them at the end of this post :) It's not my recipe, so I have no problems sharing it with ya, LOL :)



This is a Tea set that I found at Goodwill a couple of weeks or so ago, that was silver, or silver-plated...I painted them up with my favorite spray paint: Fairytale Pink by Krylon Fusion.



A lovely Vintage candlestick; I love the details on it!!



and lastly, a beautiful Vintage linen hanky with embroidered roses.



Well, that's it for this weeks Tea post...I want to thank everyone for stopping by and saying hello, and to ask that you be sure to stop by all the other ladies participating in all the wonderful Tea parties. Lots of pretty china cups and tea things go be seen...and drooled over :) Oh, and yummy food to wish you could savor!!

paperbutterfly said...

Missed your presence last week.
I have thought of painting an old teapot and now that I see how well yours turned out I think I will do it too. Maybe not pink, so yours is unique to you.
I will drop by your shoppe.
Blessings, Pam

Sheer genius to paint the set like that!!!! GENIUS!!! I LIKE it!!! Of course, pink is my very favorite color, and this is such a pretty setting altogether. That cup is amazing with the rosebuds all around on the inside rim!!! Fabulous!

What a gorgeous cup, I love the band of roses inside the rim...I will also be looking at silver tea sets very differently from now on...I LOVE what you did painting it pink.

Thank you for stopping by for tea with me and my toys.

Hi Brenda,
How extraordinary that you sprayed those silver goodies pink. They look wonderful. I myself would never have the courage to do such a thing, but maybe you have inspired me ;-)
Happy day!
