Spring Tea

Happy Spring everyone,
Last spring I gave a little Tea at our farm cottage.

Here's a picture of my darling Granddaughter enjoying tea wearing her favorite tea party hat.

I made these cute and easy cookie hats for the tea.

The brim is a small sugar cookie baked and frosted.  The crown of the hat is a white Reeses peanut butter cup (I can only find these around Easter where I live).  Remove the paper and turn candy upside down and adhere to the frosted brim.  Pipe around the candy base with colored frosting  of your choice.  Decorate with large candy sprinkles or sugar coated flowers.  I had an abundance of Johnny Jump Ups last year and hope I will again later this spring.
Thank you for coming by to visit.  I will be joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for her "Spring Tea".

Silver Coffee and Tea Set

Hello everyone,
I have something very special to share with you today, my beautiful silver set.

About five years ago my hubbys mother downsized and gave the set to her daughter.  Well, last summer my sister in law called me and asked if I wanted the set.  I was so excited and felt so privileged.  This set has been used for many church weddings and receptions, including mine!
After lots of polishing this is how it turned out.  I think absolutely beautiful!

I have it placed it in front of the window in my little cottage living room.  As you can see whe have lots of snow outside, so I'm keeping the little white trees up for a while longer.

The sugar bowl came without a cover.  I found a cover that fit, but the finial doesn't  match, so I'm still looking for a matching top.
But I'm not done with the good news.  The set also came with a teapot that tips on its own stand!  I'm still working on getting it shiny and bright.  I'll post about that beauty later.

Thank you for stopping by and letting me share my treasure.  I'll be joining the following parties:
Teatime Tuesday
Table Top Tuesday
Friends Sharing Tea
Show and Tell Friday
