Last week on Monday, April 27th we began something wonderful at my shop. - After 28 years of having a tea and gift shop called "Bernideen's" we started a going out of business sale. This is not a bad thing but rather the beginning of a new chapter in life. They call this retirement although I plan to be very busy.
I love to do so many things!
One of the things I love to do is go to antique malls and flea markets and relax with my husband. Yesterday was a beautiful day and after church we ventured to Denver where I found this darling Arthur Woods teapot at a very large antique mall.
I apologize for the lamp to the left with no shade - still waiting on that! My table below had lots of old tea stains which all came out with a good wet brushing with baking soda. I have cleaned up several lately with that and it seems to work well.
I am also sharing another "Afternoon Tea Tray" below that my husband made for me. I am so spoiled as I now have 6 everyday ones and 3 seasonal ones. I think I have a preferred choice of a levels with a luncheon plate on the bottom, then a dessert and a butter plate on top.
I am sharing my blog at these other parties:
Tuesday Cuppa Tea
May is always such a welcomed month.
I wonder what the least welcomed month is?
I guess it all depends on where you live.
