A Silver & Cream Tea Time!

I love silver! I have said this many times ........
I love the patina but most of all I love to clean it! You probably think I'm crazy 
but it is the process I think that I love. 
Seeing something worn and tarnished looking brand new.
The process of getting out the silver cleaner and scrubbing the tarnish away!
On my table today, nothing is new..........all is worn and tarnished.
 Some days I feel that way about myself, don't you?

 A simple place setting using a silver tray as a charger with cream rose bordered plates.
Topped off with an elegant fruit parfait!

 One of my favorite patterns is Blue Garland by Haviland China.
I love teacups with their unique shapes.

I used handkerchiefs as napkins.
A MEMORY........................
I use to put this one in my lapel pocket of my green corduroy suit jacket! LOL

The work that went into these creations is amazing to me. So pretty!

 This one is so delicate.............I would NEVER use it for blowing my nose!

 Just beautiful!

I used my tea set as the centerpiece.........along with a candelabra.

An old teapot and sugar bowl that had been given to me at least thirty years ago.
 I finally have taken it out of its box!

Love the pink dish here, it's so frilly!

My cupcake plate that I made holds a delicate rose.

The blue bird of happiness had to be included!

Notice the blue handkerchief under the pitcher. I have several handkerchiefs that I love.
I always thought I'd make something with them, but I just can't part with them being something new.

 A handkerchief inside a crystal bowl that will be sold,

sitting on this pretty handkerchief.

The lace tablecloth is actually a twin size bed covering that my Aunt Catherine gave me years ago.
 I use it often remembering her.

I guess I can update you a little too. I did not have the garage sale.
 Somehow I hurt my hip and could hardly walk.
I was in so much pain that I decided it would be best to wait.
I hope to have it on the 11th unless God changes my plans again.
My heart is heavy as I sell some of my things but I do know God is good.
And all will be well in the end. I think the hardest part is to know exactly what we should do.
I find myself asking God everyday to show me what I need to do as I go through my cabinets.
I see that they are just possessions and they are meaningless. I can not take them with me!
Although, I think if I could, I would pack as many as I could in that casket! LOL

Thank you for stopping by.......I guess I need to post more as my followers are few and far between.
Have a great week.........

Blessings My Friend,
 "In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us".  (1 John 4:10)
The truth of God's love is that His love is unconditional.
He loves us at all times with infinite, overwhelming, merciful, gracious, passionate love!
