A Spring Tea Vignette

I'm back after being MIA for the last two weeks. I seem to have a lot going on this Spring and Summer  and the fun has already begun. Vacation, Graduation, Birth of my niece, Family Reunion's and that is just to name a few! I'm looking forward to all the upcoming events.

This morning I came across a Tea Set that I purchased at a Goodwill while visiting my Aunt and decided it was time for a vignette.

Pansies and Butterfly's...... 

Another Goodwill find for $2.00

A sip of Green Tea to start the day....
I have to admit, I really don't like Green Tea but I am trying very hard to acquire the taste for it.

I love the look of the brown basket weave on the handles and bottoms of the cups as well as on the Teapot itself.

 Take time in the morning before the business of the day starts to think about all the blessings that you have and then write them down and remember to be thankful for all that the Lord has done.   

Tea towel was $1.10 at a Thrift Store. Please forgive the wrinkles, I didn't have time to iron this morning .

This Tea Set is for SALE!! If you are interested just send me an e-mail at for further information.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed week!
This week I am joining the following parties:
Tabletop Tuesday
Tablescape Thursday
Seasonal Sundays
Your Cozy Home Party
Potpourri Friday
Style Sisters

Tea Time Tuesday

St. Patrick's Day Tablescape

I was not going to post my Tablescape until later on in the week however, I am leaving town unexpectedly tomorrow and figured it best to go ahead and get it posted just in case I'm not able to do so later on. I hope you all have a wonderful week!!

Very simple but fun....

LOVE the shamrock napkin rings! I bought the set of four with the napkins included at Goodwill. I think they were $4.99 

The large pitcher was a very recent Goodwill find for $5.75. It has a store price tag on the bottom for $14.99

My tablecloth was also a Goodwill find for $2.00!!! I just LOVED it! It has been handmade.

Looks at this beautiful book that I purchased at the Goodwill for .50!! It is in MINT shape and I look forward to reading the Fairy Tales to Small Prince.

I bought these cute little 'Salsa Bowls' from the Dollar Tree to use for my "pots of gold".

Sorry to be in such a hurry but I have to run, need to leave out early in the moring before the rain sets in.... (hopefully)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I am joining the following parties:

Corner of Pink for Pink Saturday

Due to having the flu all week I didn't have anything prepared for Beverly's Pink Saturday Party over at How Sweet The Sound. So, I quickly snapped a few photo's this evening of a corner in my dining room and decided that it will just have to do.  

I just ADORE this sweet little lamp that I picked up at a Flea Market in Branson . It was only $4.00 due to the fact that it did not  have a shade. Well, to me that was an easy fix!

I found a plain little shade at a Garage Sale, some material left over  from recovering chair cushions, some beaded fringe and rose trimming and wa-lah! This is the end result. My mom was visiting at the time so she had a big part in the transformation.

My Small Prince (who will be 6 in June)

Roses on the front drawers of the little table.

Table Top Roses

Another great Goodwill find, I can never have enough doilies. 
Thank You for stopping by and hopefully next week I will be a little more prepared.
Enjoy your weekend!
