FRIENDS SHARING TEA AND MOVE OVER IN THE KITCHEN!

Welcome to Friends Sharing Tea.  I wanted to share this picture painted by Doris Lee back in 1935........especially since Thanksgiving is coming in a few weeks!














And the reenactment that was in the 1987 edition of Country Magazine.....the kitchen seems to always be the heart of the home!  Can't you just smell it!




I want to encourage everyone to think now about sharing your table and bounty with others less fortunate this Thanksgiving . I don't know about where you live - but earlier this year our unemployment in Colorado Springs was 10%.  Find someone who needs a lovely meal and have them join you at your 
Thanksgiving table!




If you have something to share regarding tea please link up and join the group below - we love having you show us what you are up to with tea!

Of course Mama should be in pink, it makes her just glow. My Mama always looked perfect in pink.

What a beautiful old fashion kitchen - so many preparing the food. It looks as if they all are getting ready for a wonderful celebration. Your banner is lovely and looks like a wonderful autumn day. Happy Pink Saturday !!!

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

Hello Bernideen,
what a fun is the reenacted photo. They made it carefully and I can smell the scent of roasted turkey. And I love the kids and cats everywhere. Thank you for hosting this nice event.
Best greetings, Johanna

That is one of my favorite paintings! I had forgotten about it --- having not seen it for awhile. It takes me back to my auntie's house when I was five years old. I remember grandma, aunties, mom, and cousins preparing Thanksgiving dinner. A turkey was roasting in the wood cookstove and riced potatoes were being prepared too. Pumpkin pies, vegetables, and crumb buns. Oh yummy! This picture could be auntie's house to a "T" --- at least in my memory bank. Thank you for sharing it.
