Tea Time-Tablescape Thursday



     It is time for Tablescape Thursday. Please visit Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch to see all the beautiful table settings this week.

     My husband took me away for a few days to celebrate my birthday, so I am writing this in a hotel room. I didn't have a chance to set an entire table before we left home. I did have a picture that I was waiting to share and this seems like a perfect week to do so. On a recent trip to Florida we found a wonderful shop full of handcrafted items. One of my favorites was the Tea Chandelier.


It reminded me of a favorite teacup and saucer of my own. Care to join me?

Neat chandy! I like the saucers wrong-side up, so you can enjoy it from hanging position! Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you, Sue! I hope you have a wonderful time away. And how thoughtful to send us this creative chandelier. Perfect timing too- I am having a cup of tea right now.
Cheers!

Thanks for all the comments and birthday wishes. Actually, my birthday is tomorrow (Thursday) and hopefully we will have some sunshine while we explore. I'm getting all sorts of pictures for the "other" blog and looking at fun things for tablescapes in all the cute stores.

FYI-I didn't buy the tea chandelier, my house is way too comtemporary for it...but I did think it was really unique and I could just picture it in some of the Shabby Chic style homes.

Thanks for coming by. Love that chandelier. Totally my sister's style. Have to send her here to see it. I collected tea cups for years. Had a friend over the other day that loves tea, dusted them all off, let her pick her favorite one, and had us a tea party. So fun! I'm going to pretend I'm having a virtual one with you now:) Hope you have a great Halloween! Holly at lifelaughlatte.blogspot.com
