“Does anybody really care?”
Who sang that song? I just can’t remember but it has been stuck in my head all day! Where is Shelia from Note Songs when I need her? *grin*
Well, I do believe it is tea time!!
I set up this vignette on the kitchen table after finding the sweet little green wire teapot while out thrifting a few days ago. Now I know I’m not really set up for tea, but it kinda looks like a tea party, doesn’t it?
I started out with a white doilie on a simple wooden tray.
I filled the teapot with reindeer moss and topped it with a votive candle cup. It’s so open and airy and the moss smells so sweet and fresh.
An old clock face, with two small keys as clock hands, was inserted into a flower frog as a reminder that 2:00 is, indeed, teatime!
I found these unusual gold-tone teaspoons in a thrift shop many moons ago. They were hidden away in one of the kitchen hutch drawers. I keep forgetting where I place things! Do you do this, too?
To add some visual interest, I used a vintage Eiffel Tower post card and the card sent to me by Cathy at Sweet Up North Mornings when I won her paper towel holder give-away.
What a precious floral pattern on this cup and saucer…
An old and tarnished silver-plate sugar bowl and creamer complete the mismatched tea service.
The candlesticks are chippy iron birds .
I always try to save the roses that Mr. S gives me. Although they started out as a dozen, these faded yellow stems have dwindled down to only seven, due to breakage.
I am amazed that I have kept this plant alive since December! Don’t you just love the variegation in the leaves?
I could set out another cup if you’d care to join me……
This is my first time participating in Marty’s Table Top Tuesday. She and her participants always have the prettiest and most innovative vignettes to show.
And since I have a semblance of a tea party going, I’m linking up to Lady Katherine’s Tea Time Tuesday.
This is a fun new party where you can showcase your table centerpieces. Won’t you please stop by to visit The Style Sisters?
