"FRIENDS SHARING TEA" WITH HARVEST DECOR



Welcome to my kitchen and  Fall Harvest Decorations.  I love decorating for all the different seasons:





Today is the first Wednesday we are back "indoors" and back to "Friends Sharing Tea" instead of "Tea In The Garden"
 although many of you are in warmer climates where 
the garden is still flourishing.  I have several
fall teapots that are special for such a time as this!




Our heavenly father is so creative to design four unique seasons:







This is a view of my small dining room and the table
 ready for a big turkey don't you think?  










Frankly, I do keep many of my tea sets in the basement on shelves but here are a few displays around.  I look forward to retirement when I plan to make major changes and paint all of these shabby chic white....





Late note:  we no long er own the dark buffet - we gave it to my son and daughter in law. 
 The other pieces are now painted Shabby Chic!



If you are a blogger, please join me for "Friends Sharing Tea" and link something about tea at the bottom here!!!

Hello Bernideen,
Oh my, your table looks fabulous! And your cabinets and shelves hold many delightful pieces! You must have so much fun setting up a tea or a dinner table with all your lovely teapots and china. Thank you for giving me a peek at your pretties and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Such beautiful fall china settings, Bernideen! What is it that's addictive about china collecting? China manufacturers know we like to celebrate the seasons, so they oblige us with many patterns to choose from.

Hi Bernideen!

Your Fall Harvest tea decor and table setting are so lovely. I love the soft colors and details.

I am sharing my pretty little squash sugar and creamers today. Sorry I don't have the teapot and cups. I am hoping to find those one day.

Thanks for hosting this fun party!

xoxo Bunny Jean

Hi dear Bernideen!
Thank you so much for yet, another great party at Tea with Friends. I love your table, it's lovely; specially the gorgeous teacup and teapot, perfect for fall. Your cabinets and shelves are a delight, one can just sit in front of it and stare at your lovelies, for hours on end!

Hello Bernideen
No matter the season, your tea table always looks elegant. After seeing so many beautiful china and tea collections through Sandi's link, I feel like I should go out and buy myself more as I have very little of these things compared to others.
Autumn is my favourite time of year, yet not one teacup or plate for the season. At least I can enjoy what the others are sharing. :-)
Thanks for hosting.

Hi Bernideen,
thank you for sharing those heartwarming fall vignettes with us. Beside I love your pretty cina (always, everytime swooning) I find the squirrel salt and pepper supercute. Just right for your home with the little furry friends. Thank you for sharing this nice party during the year. I am always delighted to find a cup of tea here, especially in those colder season.
Best greetings, Johanna
