~Tea in my garden Guest Room~

Hello Guys, I hope you all had a GREAT Labor day weekend, without the labor ha ha!!

Don't you just love Chintz China...I know I sure do...

A sweet Chintz tea pot that I made into a lamp

Summer time Chintz Tea cup and saucer under a cloche

Sugar bowl and cream...sweet

I set this up in my Garden guest room just for you...
A Victorian Ladies Collar box that I put a sweet bird nest in..Is this not a beauty...
This is an old picture frame that I made a collage with old family pictures and it sits on one of my coffee tables...
I am joining these parties today Marty at " A Stroll Thru Life"
and Lady Katherine " Tea Time Tuesday"
I hope all of you have a GREAT week...I know I have not been around...But life has been really busy for me right now with Candace..Hope to be back in full swing again soon...Take care and God Bless..
Until next time from my mountain to yours
Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Gloria, I love your pretty pinks for your tea! And the collar box is wonderful. Hope Candace is doing well.

Please remember Mr. Magpie in your prayers. He is having surgery in the morning at Mayo, and we are leaving to spend the night in the hotel next door in a few minutes. He will be at their campus in Jacksonville. More details on my blog. Thank you so much for your prayers. They are needed.

Love you!

I do have to say my fav item is the lady hat box.. They just dont make pretty things like that anymore..

I love the chintz dishes, but I have managed to avoid buying any. You know, we have to draw the line somewhere. I'll just enjoy yours!! Most of the hand painted plates you saw on my post today were painted by a well-known Colorado lady at the height of the hand painted craze in the early 1900s. Some were my mother's and others I have collected over the years whenever I find one. She painted the most exquisite roses, don't you think? Hope you have a good week. Sally

Gloria, I can always count on you to do a sensational vignette. I love every single thing about this one. I just may come and borrow (steal) it. It is really pretty. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. I continue to have Candace in prayer. Hugs, Marty

Gloria this is such a sweet setting! I love your pink guest room! The table is just gorgeous and your lamp you made is the sweetest thing around! I do love chintz and have a few pieces but not enough to make a pretty table like yours. I keep looking for more -

Your collar box is wonderful! Love the cute bird's nest inside!

So sweet of you to be with Candace during this time- I know she so appreciates it and what sweet memories you are making!

bee blessed

The teapot lamp is so cute and I just love the look of the vignette you created around it.

the collar box is just lovely too, and adding the birds nest just makes it all the more fun.

Thank you for stopping by to share tea with me also.

The china is beautiful and how clever to make the lamp from the teapot! I love how that lone teacup looks under the cloche...very elegant. So pretty.

Everything in your post is so pretty, Gloria! I love chintz and your lamp is gorgeous! Love the cloche, too.

I'm thinking of you and saying prayers for Candace and her sweet baby!


Carole Burant said...

You never cease to amaze me with your wonderful sense of decor! I absolutely love your chintz tea set and you've given me an idea for a cloche I bought recently:-) The Victorian Ladies Collar box is gorgeous and another awesome idea, putting the bird nest in it!! I need you over at my house to redecorate for me! lol xoxo

Alycia Nichols said...

The chintz is absolutely beautiful! I'm glad to see there are still people in this world who appreciate such things. There is nothing more "girlie" than lunching on plates or sipping tea from cups with a chintz design. Love it!
