FRIENDS SHARING TEA AND A VALENTINE DINING ROOM!

I'm not sure why I love to bake but the smell isn't all that bad! And isn't experience to best teacher?  When I go to the market, I can spend hours in the baking aisle.  Winter is definitely the baking season!


Welcome to Friends Sharing Tea and if you have something about tea, tea time or your own collection of tea things - please link up at the bottom. 






Lately, I have been enjoying my Valentine tea things - that means the color RED IS ALL AROUND.  This time of the year we are "indoor" people so it helps to brighten things up a bit!  Outside this flag greets you!







These dried hydrangeas are a welcome sight in winter....












and my Valentine wreath outdoors.........
























Please join in the fun and join me if you have something to share about tea, teapots or related ideas.....do you decorate for Valentines Day?  What are you baking now?

Oh what fun pretties! This reminds me that I need to definitely change my garden flags out and put up my heart shaped wreath! :)

Hi Bernideen,
yes, I agree. All the wonderful baking items are so interesting to see. Although I bake not so much for me alone, it is very inspiration to see all the nice ingredients and tools. And the china departure in the stores are my favoite, too. I would love to shop in your store but the high postal fee is a problem. You have so many wonderful things, like the rose tea pots in pink and green. You have set and decorated just lovely for Valentines day. So many inspirations. Will see, what I will do for the next tea time post.
Best greetings, Johanna

Bernideen, your teapots are gorgeous! I think I tell you every time I see them. Love the hydrangeas too. How pretty they are with your teapots. And yes, I'm getting ready to bake something for Sweethearts Day; chocolate of course!

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Bernideen
Can you remove 2 of my links please? A strange page kept coming up, so I kept trying and yikes - I linked 3 times. Thanks.
I plan to start baking this week but won't have any VD decor so I'll enjoy yours - love the wreath.

I LOVE TO BAKE.......BUT THAT IS WHEN I HAD SMALL CHILDREN AND OF COURSE ALL HOLIDAYS.....ON VALENTINE'S DAY I MADE VANILLA CUP CAKES FROM SCRATCH AND PINK CREAM CHEESE FROSTING, A JELLY ROLL, AND COOKIES ALL FROM SCRATCH AND THEY WERE SO DELICIOUS.
I AM SPOILED BY THE CAKE MIXES TODAY.
YOUR BLOG IS SO LOVELY .....SO CHEERFUL AND IT SAYS VALENTINE'S DAY.
HAVE A LOVELY DAY.....RIZZI

Hi Bernideen, thank you for holding this lovely tea party each week-- I've linked up for the first time! (Guess my photo didn't take, but maybe next time!) I've added you to my blogroll as well. Love your sweet dishes and those lovely teapots! Have a great week. Bess

LOVE your heart-covered teapot and the heart-shaped chintz plate. It's all beautiful but those really jumped out at me. Happy Valentine's Day!
