Enjoying a Chic Tea Time Tuesday & Anniversary Giveaway!


Welcome Friends to another Tea Time Tuesday. Well, I hate to report, it is still HOT, HOT, HOT here and the triple digit temps are still hanging on. My poor flowers are reaching for the water that does not come from the skies, but rather my garden hose which is really getting a work out, along with the water meter that goes around like a Ferris wheel. LOL
Well, what does one do in a heat wave but serve tea~~~

Today our tea is in the dining room with a pretty tea cup given to me from my dear friend Ann of Ann's Finds. This cup is like a dainty mug in a black and white zebra design and topped with a gorgeous and detailed pink rose. I have teamed it up with a pretty black and white toile style saucer.




One of my favorite tea pots is this pretty white with gold trim. I have enjoyed it for 30 years and was a gift from my secret pal sister from church.


For a pretty back drop display, I have added another one of my favorite black and white plates. I only have two of these and always keep on the lookout for more.


Gingham napkin in a fan fold and tied with a pink ribbon is a nice accent and a special glass box with a pretty black and white chandelier on the lid holds our tea bag selection.



The scent of my beautiful Tyler Candle is rose and a nice addition to our visit. This candle was sent to me from my dear friend Mary who lives in Tyler, Texas and her blog is Crash and Smash.

Petite Roses fill this large toile mug with pink handle.


I so enjoyed having you today. It has been a relaxing break inside as the temps soar.
Thank God for the AC.

Please visit our gracious hostess, Sandi, of Rose Chintz Cottage, for many more participants for Tea Time Tuesday.



And, in case you did not see my last post, I have a Giveaway going on in honor of my wedding anniversary.
Visit HERE to read about it, but you can enter by commenting on any post till the drawing.
I will be on a little vacation, so I'll thank you in advance for stopping by and leaving any comments. I'll visit you when I return.


Good Luck!

Blessings to you,
Celestina Marie

Your post is incredible as always. Such wonderful china you show us.
Have a great week and a happy anniversary ahead.

Me thinks we need Iced Tea!!

I LOVE the teacup! What a fun and beautiful design. Everything on your table looks gorgeous. The tea caddy is adorable... very chic indeed. I have a tea caddy that Chrissy gave me and I love it. It makes me feel so rich!

Thank you for your sweet comments on my trips. I have one more trip to make in a couple weeks to see my friend Cindy and my brother and then my trips will be over for this year. It's been a busy and wild summer for me!

Kisses & hugs to Miss Beazy. She must just jump in the pool when she goes outside in this heat!

Big hugs & love to you my friend,
sherry

Your tea setting is so pretty and inviting. I wish I could send you some of our flood waters. We have finally got to under 27 foot. We have cool down a little. We are just thankful when we lost our electricity it wasn't one of the triple digits day. It was off from about 2 in the afternoon to almost 4 the next morning. Have a good time away. Your Missouri Friend.

Very pretty china for tea today and I can see why you love your teapot. We did the same thing years ago at church and had a secret pal - it was fun.
Enjoy your vacation, hope you're somewhere cooler.

Love your tea pics. You seem to be getting more and more 'into' blogging then when I first started following you. Love it!

I found your black and white setting to be simply charming! Love the black mug with the roses, paired with the toile saucer! The white tea pot is always "in style" and I am sure you use it often...
All of the little accessories you
placed with the tea setting are lovely...I like the black cup with pink handle and the pot of tiny pink roses, too.....all in all, some beautiful "eye candy"!!
Thank you for sharing....Francy

Celestina,
The pink rose tea cup with the black and white saucer is exquisite! That glass box with the chandelier is lovely and such a good idea to put your teas in. Oh, how I love tea time. Everything about this post made my heart sing.
