IN THE HEART OF WINTER - HAVE TEA!



Today is "Friends Sharing Tea" and welcome to Bernideen's Tea Time Blog where I love anything to do with having tea! Yesterday I was going to post a similar tea...but found I accidently pushed a wrong button on my camera and alas...very blurry photos!  So here we go again.  





I seem to be off to a start this year....breaking a saucer or I should say...chipping one.  It pays to have the "leaf" on the table secure. If you use your tea sets - you will break something sometime.  This is a fact of life.  I wear a lot of vintage jewelry.  Why keep it in the drawer when you can enjoy wearing it!  You will loose or break some if you wear it  - I have!





Let's talk about my tea table.  I purchased the lovely "fun" rose doily recently while antiquing in Denver.  I love this work of art made by some lovely lady.



In my future I see painting many of my pieces shabby chic white...such as this tea cart.








I did not bake this cheesecake but got it at the market.  Winter can be long and I am notorious for getting bored in the winter.  I think it seems like a great time to have a tea party and have some friends over.  




The name of this picture is "End of The Dinner Party":



 I am hoping that many of my tea loving friends will join me today by linking up here at the bottom with a post from your blog!  Join in the fun below and please include a link to my blog on your post.

I will be linking to: Tea Time Tuesday and Tuesday Cuppa Tea and Tea Cup Tuesday and The Rose Garden In Malevik

What a beautiful tea you've shared, Bernideen. I wonder if I should paint my tea wagon, too. Thanks for hosting!

Hi Bernideen,
your pink roses tea party is sweet like candy. I love the vibrant pink roses on the doilies as much as on the china. And the flower basket is marvellous. Thank you for sharing and hosting this great party.
Best greetings, Johanna

Your newly acquired rose embroidered and lace crochet doily looks beautiful on your tea cart with your rose china. The cheese cake looks yummy too!

I love popping in. It always looks so welcoming here. I need to make a list of some tea things that I would like to find. One being a tea-cart. I would also love to find a bed tea-tray. Your cheese cake looks yummy. Deb

Me again. I forgot to mention how much I love the 'End of the dinner party' print. It is gorgeous. Perhaps you could show it even closer. Deb

Just lovely. I think the doily is especially gorgeous. My sweet grandma used to spend hours making them...I have been blessed to own one!! Everything looks so pretty and like you're ready for a tea party...a Valentine one maybe!

What beautiful teacups! Sorry that you chipped a saucer. You are right, when things gets used, little accidents do happen from time to time. But it's better than not using it at all. The cheesecake looks delicious!

Everything looks soooo lovely, Bernideen. Those roses are magnificent and I truly love that old basket they are in.
It's all beautiful!

Oh, oh, oh ... that may be one of the prettiest tea cart settings I have ever seen. You've given me LOADS of ideas here. THANK YOU! And that rose doily is amazing. I *could* make that, but would I? Prob'ly not, as that represents a heap of work. Bless you for rescuing it!

You certainly have a rose theme throughout so many of your posts. Love them all.
