Join Me for a Tea Party at Jan & Tom's Place...



What a wonderful way to spend a hot summer day, inside partaking in beautiful Tea Parties hosted by Jan & Tom's Place!


I encourage you all to stroll on over to their blog, and have tea with the other participants!


Jan, Thanks for being such a gracious host! :)




I would like to take you back in time, to approximately 55 years ago.


That is when our Aunt Bo acquired this precious little tea set, at the tender age of 7.



Aunt Bo, blessed Ashley and I with this set just a few weeks ago!

We are thrilled and amazed at all of the little dainty pieces.





I included the picture below to show just how small this little tea set is...




Blessings for the day~ ~Rhonda

Rhonda...sorry I missed you on the LIST - but you're ON IT NOW!!

What a lovely TEA SET you were blessed to receive!! It barely looks like it was used. I hope you use it over and over and over again! I've learned NOT to leave things on the shelf, displayed, waiting for that PERFECT time to use them...but to USE THEM whenever I WANT TO!!! (which is ALOT)

Thanks for having us for TEA!!

~Blessings,
Jan

I have a ruffled cake plate exactly like yours..does yours have the transparent stripe on the rim?
And I have plates that match your tea set, Norway ROse pattern?
Beautiful tea party thank you!

Elizabeth said...

Great timing, Aunt Bo! How super for Ashley to have this family piece!

Heather said...

This is such a gorgeous set. Made even more special by being passed down by family! It is truly adorable in it's small size- it appears to be in perfect condition!! We bought Bella a tea set when she was first born and it is up on a top shelf for now!! I can not wait to give it to her when she gets older. Hopefully she will treasure these things as I do!
Love your bunny too! Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.
How is your little David!?!?! How did it go yesterday? Was he able to get his cast?
Have a great day sweetie!

Hi Rhonda,
Stop by my blog when you have a minute...I have an award for you! It's a little different from your others!

Sincerely Yours said...

Morning Rhonda! What a gorgeous tea set; you and Ashley are so lucky to have received it! Amazing when you put the ruler next to it - adorable. Oh and I like your new look!!! Have a great day and stay cool! - Jeannette

Picket said...

Hey Scooter....man I thought I was at the wrong house!!!! lol I love the new look and that precious tea set...oh my word what a treasure girl!!! Hope is well with you and yours today and that David is doing great with his arm...take care and have a great day!!!

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi again Rhonda! Thanks for your nice comments. The ottoman cover was easy and since yours are round even better. Just measure around, add an extra inch for seam; do a gathering stitch on top then sew the ends so you have a big circle/skirt. I would lay fabric for top right on top and chalk the outline, add an inch for seam. Now gather the bottom fabric at the top to form a loose ruffle so you can pin the top fabric to it and even out the ruffle as you go; baste, test fit then regular stitch. Done! New ottoman - Hope this helped? Probably more info than you wanted!!lol - Jeannette

Susie Harris said...

Hi Rhonda.. the table was in the section where the towels are.. I know weird. It was in a box and you have to slip the peices together. It's not hard at all... take care, Susie H~

Heather said...
