Tea Time

When I visited my mother a few weeks ago she surprised me on Sunday morning with a lovely tea:

The table cloth, placemats, mis-matched china and glass creamer are all thrifted. Where do you think I get it from? :)

She baked assorted muffins, I think the chocolate macadamia nut were my favorite, and had toast with butter and jam. It reminded me of our trip last September to T Party. Sadly, Susan has had to close the shop and I've very glad I got the chance to visit!

Mom kept our tea warm with a tea cozy I gave her for mother's day:

You may have guessed that I purchased the gorgeous cozy from The Queen. I have one my self and they really keep your tea pot hot! I believe she uses wool blankets to insulate them. Her Majesty is quite the crafty lady!

I'll be back soon with a sweet project I'm working on and some thrifty fun.

It's fun to see your mom's thrift finds too. (My thrifty genes are also inherited.)
Congrats on winning Apron Thrift Girl's naming contest. "Esme" is perfect!

Lovely tea! I just purchased a tea cozy from Vallen too! I love it, she made it custom to match my kitchen! She is a crafty lady, and its been fun 'going' on vacation with her too!

Oh, it is so lovely and thoughtful. I love the thing holding the food. And Ms. Queen's cozy is the perfect touch.

Cheers! LA

It looks so nice at your mom's house. Thanks for the plug.
