Tea for Three

My contribution for this Tablescape Thrusday is a Tea for Three. Two friends of mine came so we could just hang out and sing Karaoke. And when we do that, we like to drink tea and munch on something. I like to use a teapot with a warmer cause we continuously drink hot tea during the session. Somehow, we think it opens up our vocal chords, lol. For a lot of creative tablescapes, please visit our gracious host, Susan of
We do this in our family room, which is the most informal place in the house. With leather furniture, it is meant to be comfortable and worry free. It is also the most funky one combining safari and tribal decor.
This is very informal so I just used paper napkins. Do you like the painting on the wall? I painted that by myself.
I got this pewter tea set and the tray from Ebay a long time ago, when I still lived in Florida. It was made in Holland and I like it very much. In fact, I like it so much that I searched for more and I found a set that I gave to my daughter and another I gave to my friend, Nit. They are very similar except I could not find the same kind of tray. Too bad cause I really like the pierced scroll design. Mine also included a coffee pot not shown here.
I hope you enjoyed my small participation on TT. Thanks for coming and thanks Susan, for hosting it.

I really enjoyed seeing more of your travel aboard the cruise ship and your church is beautiful!
I hope you and your family have a Very Happy New Year!

Wow, you've got one photographically rich blog here--and you're a painter too.

About those books on early Natchez and its environs. I bought them at Jefferson College many years ago, and have long since passed them on--to my present regret. When I moved to Oregon, I figured I was putting Mississippi behind me, but 23 years later, and it's still with me.

Here's an interesting article about Jefferson College with a website link to it at the bottom.

Your tea tablescape is wonderful! Shows that dressing up a simple "snack" can make it all the more special. That pewter tea set is gorgeous - never seen a pewter one before. I really like the tray you used for the paper napkins too. Your painting is very nice and must add special meaning to the room.
Happy 2010!

Beautiful. Your painting is awesome. You're quite talented. You sure know how to make paper napkins look impressive. You have such a treasure filled home. I look forward to seeing many more posts in 2010. Rosie

Are those cream puffs I see? I would sing for cream puffs. Actually you would feed me cream puffs to fill my mouth so I couldn't sing. That works for both of us.
Happy New Year.

Oh! Christine! Lovely setting and how fun!

Happy New Year or in Hawaiian:
Hau'oli Makahiki Hou! (sounds like "How..oh-lee...Mah-kah...hee-kee...Ho!" ...your Hawaiian pronunciation lesson for the day :o)

Blessings & Aloha!

I love your tea service and the setting is perfect. Your painting is beautiful...I should have known you were an artist just by the way you set your tables!
Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year!
