~HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADY KATHERINE~



Happy Birthday Lady Katherine....Today girls we our having a Birthday Tea for our sweet and elegant Lady K... Please be sure and goes by and wish her the very best on her special day...Click here Victorian is all about romance so I thought I would do a Romantic Tea Tray today for you girl !!! Now please put on your shawl...and have a seat this is your party....


I gave you a good book to read while you sip your tea...And of course its all about Teas...


Sat the phone close by so when the many well wishers call you don't have to get up...


I set your Tea up on my J.P. Coats and Clark's Spool Cabinet...this is the back of it...ca. 1880


This is the front of it...I just love this piece...had it for years in my bedroom so I hope you enjoy it also Lady K.
I have some Lemon Poppy seed Scones for you...YUM!! have one...And of course what's a Tea without some Pearl's for you to wear...


Gave you a pretty Tea cup with saucer and matching Tea pot...put it all on my silver tray with my silver sugar shuttle....

Added one of my Vintage Bridal bouquet as this is all about being romantic....

May you have a WONDERFUL Birthday Lady K....Hope you enjoyed your Victorian Birthday Tea !!

May all of you have a safe and Blessed Day...


Hugs and smiles Glria

Well you really know how to honor somebodies birthday. But then you're a class act all by yourself, so I'm not suprised. I'm trying to do a few visits this morning, I've missed everyone so much. I hope you have been fit as a fiddle.

Love Ya,
Chris

Gloria,
You have a beautiful and elegant touch in all your designs, they are always lovely. I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon. My husband just mentioned we are expected to get 6”-9” of snow this evening! Take care……~Cathy~

What a gorgeous and elegant tea set. You sure have the perfect home for it! Everything looks just perfect. I'll just take those pearls and loop them around my neck while you're not looking!

sue said...

hey G I hope you weren't nekked during that brush burning!! LOL!! OUCH! Now G, I thought the IPOD was a good gift and the Queen liked it because it had her favorite show tunes on it. She already had an IPOD so is familiar with them. Anyway, on to better news, the floor is finished and I took some more pictures, will load them in a few minutes. I just love your Kyra slideshow, shes so beautiful and looks like her handsome daddy!! TTYL!! xoxoxo

Great party g, you are such a doll. Thanks for coming by today...you know I hated all those rooms!

Chandy said...

Your teaset is beutiful, Gloria!

I wondered what happened to Lady K also... I've visited her site twice today. I do hope she is alright...

salmagundi said...

Loved your Victorian tea party! I, too, have a spool cabinet - only mine is Clark's ONT cabinet. I found mine 40 years ago in my Dad's shop with his vise mounted on it. It cleaned up real pretty, though. Have a great week. Sally

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Gloria, Lady K is going to feel totally pampered and spoiled when she visits and sees this tea party...I love reading every word! You spool chest is gorgeous...it is such amazing condition, too! Love the phone, the pearls, the sugar scuttle and all the special touches! :-)

bj said...

Oh, my...you do give a lovely tea, Gloria...just beautiful!!

Chatelaine said...

Nice tea post. Love that spool cabinet, it makes a wonderful place to set the tea tray. Lemon poppyseed scones sound divine, can I crash the tea party?

I am sure Lady Katherine will be thrilled by your thoughtfulness.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

OH MY...How on earth did I miss a tea party! I do not know "Lady Katherine" so perhaps I should make her acquaintance. My goodness, Gloria...you did the Lady proud! I'll just stand quietly over in the corner and look at all the lovliness! :) Like Bo, I am not really dressed for the occassion. :)
Hugs..
Mona
That cabinet is...gorgeous, as is everything.

Lady Katherine said...

Sweet Gloria, I have gone and gotten my shawl, and have sat down on your lovely sofa, yes the phone is ringing, I am so honored so many have called. I have taken a bite of the lemon scones and a sip of tea! Oh the pearls are beautiful! I love the sugar shuttle and the spool cabinet! The China, the bouquet is just lovely as all the special touches you have given for me. Ah, now I take a look at the wonderful book, for I have never seen this book, I need to peek inside. Thank you ever so much for such a lovely afternoon!
I spent the day here at home in bed, I am much better today, just a little sore. My 21 month old granddaughter went to the creek, I caught her just in time. So now, I have torn my right side from my mesh. Doc ordered hospital, I said no! I have a Tea Party going on! He was not happy, but I bound up good and stayed in bed and slept for days around the clock. I am so happy to be up and now enjoy your lovely tea! Just lovely! Thank you for a wonderful Birthday Gift of a lovely Tea!
