Tea Time and Karaoke

Last Wed., my friend Debjani asked if I wanted to do Scrapbooking the following day. I said "Sure!" so she planned to come over at 1 PM. I woke up early to finish all my daily chores, you know, watering the plants, blogging, feeding my mom, blogging, putting away the dishes, blogging, laundry, blogging and getting the garbage ready for pick up. I also had time to go to my booth at the store to drop off some items to sell. Then, my mom and I stopped by Dairy Queen to get lunch and headed for home. I made it by 1 but Debjani called and said she was

running an hour behind. So what do you think a dedicated blogger would do?

I blogged again, lol.

I also ordered the second part of my blog book, second quarter of 2009 and it had more than 400 pages. Wow! No wonder it took forever to create.

When she finally came, she said she had no time to get her scrapbooking stuff

together because she was asked to help with an essay and then had phone calls. She asked why don't we just do karaoke? You know me, I am very flexible so karaoke it is!

Of course, I had to get some tea and cookies ready so we don't get hungry while singing.

I can't believe this is the first time I have used this teapot with a bird finial. I think it is lovely. I took 2 of my Warvel teacups from one of the china cabinets. I have yet to do a tablescape using this dinnerware which I have a 46 piece set (service for 8). They are made in Poland. I love the shape of the tea cups.

I baked some (refrigerated ready mixed cookie dough, I love short cuts, lol!) sugar and oatmeal with raisins. Nope, Debjani and I did not finish them all but they were good.

We left a few for my hubby.

To hold our napkins, I used the white bird napkin holders I just bought from Z Gallerie a few days ago and I always like to use a teapot warmer when I serve.

We had so much fun singing. We even figured out how to record using the singing machine and then we would listen to us and just laugh so hard.

Do you like my flatware? I just got the set either from Neiman Marcus or Horchow, can't remember which one.

Thank you so much for joining us for our Karaoke session.

This is so funny, and you are very flexible...even when it comes to blogging~ I enjoyed this post and read it to my husband, he laughed too.

I love the teapot and it would look very nice with my white settings so if you decide you don't need it around just let me know. :)

Your whole day sounds delightful, and if you were not flexible with your plans things could have been very different. I can picture you and your friend laughing as you listen to yourselves sing.


Oh Christine, you cracked me up with your story!, such a blogger you are! Anyhow, I'm in love with your tea pot, I can't believe you never got her out before...but than again, we have a life long for blogging, ha! You're the flexible lady, Chris, since Debjani decided to be kind of changeable today! Karaoki is a lot of fun, my sil loves to sing with it! The tea cups are a total jewel! Love this.
Lots of hugs

Christine, I absolutely love the teapot, the flatware, the teacups and the cookies. Did I cover it all? LOL! This is so beautiful. Everything you put together always turns out so nice. I know you and your friend had a great time. Wish you had included your recorded track, then we could laugh with you. Hugs coming your way, Ginger

A karaoke tea party! Yay! You wouldn't want to hear me sing : )
Your tea tray looks beautiful! I love your bird tea pot very much, as well as your two Polish tea cups (so pretty!), and those amazing bird napkin rings! You really do know how to set a tea tray and treat a friend well!
Thank you so much for sharing with us.
