Tablescape Tuesday

Attention! Attention!! Before we can start our Tablescapeing, we have the latest breaking news!! Do you see this bathroom? Darling Tuesday Ones, it has been invaded! That's right ~ at this very moment in Plains, Georgia, while on a tour of former President Carter's childhood home, someone broke the rules and opened a security gate and barged in to do some snapping!Can you believe this, Trying To Remember What Pres. Carter Looked Like Ones? Well, I think he ate a lot of peanuts, although that had nothing to do with his looks, well, maybe it did, and he had big front teeth and...oh, excuse me. We need to get on with the business at hand! Bathroom Business!! Okay, I'm your gal - the Diva of Bathrooms....
I have my toilet brush in hand and I'm ready for the inspection. Okay, I can see clearly now, that's a song, oh Singing Ones! I see the most beautifulness of faces, the most peaches and creamyness of complexions, two, yes, that's right, two lovely sparkling eyes, a smile just filled with the pearliest of whiteness and this lovely one is draped with priceless jewels. Okay, so far so good, Sweet Genuine Ones. There is the most gorgeousness of locks filled with bathroom highlights ~ you cannot get highlights like these at your salon, no no Nanette! Only a bathroom will do for a true Snapping Diva. Onward, (as I'm holding up my toilet brush!) Wait, I see no arms, can you, Oh Puzzled Ones? Oh, my goodness, we've never had an armless Diva before, Astonished Ones! I can see no dainty hands with the creamiest of fingers either! Oh, the shock of it! I must settle down a bit...okay I'm better now...I think I get it, Trick or Treat Ones...it's almost Halloween and this lovely one is pulling a funny on us! Somehow she has manged to snap her lovelyness without using her arms or hands! This is certainly a Diva!! Yes, Dear Trembling With Fear Ones, this is the real thing, and I don't mean Coke! This is a Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva!! Do we know her? Why of course we do, this is Donna at http://adventureswithtassie.blogspot.com/. Congratulations, Donna!! I now crown you with the most sought after title in Blogland and maybe even the world!! You are now a Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Diva and will be one for ever and ever and until the twelfth of never!! Go now, Donna, and Diva Diva Las Vegas if you want to!!

Now, Most Precious Ones, you, too can achieve the bathroom wonderment for yourself if you so desire. There are only a chosen few who will ever reach this grand station in life - true Bathroom Divas! So if you want to get down to real Bathroom Business, barge into a bathroom of your choice, not your own is preferred, take your little camera and don't forget to turn off the flash and snap snap away. Come and inform me, The Queen of Bathroom Business, and I will come and get your most gorgeous snap, bring you back to my blog and post you up so high for all the I Wish I Could Be Like Her Ones to see!
Life is so good.....

Hi, and welcome again to Tablescape Tuesday hosted by the most talented tablescaper ever, Susan, at BetweenNapsOnThePorch. Many of us are having so much fun setting our tables, so go over and check her out.

Today I'd like to show you a tablescape that I blogged about when I first started my blog in June of this year. This is a little setting for just us girls to drink peach tea, eat cookies and talk!
The table has a soft moss green tablecloth and I'm using little tea napkins with a tiny little embroidered flower on one corner.


I rather love the roosters and I found these precious little rooster dessert plates! No dinner plates, no bowls, no cups, just dessert plates! But aren't they the cutest little things? These little roosters are ever so feminine and these little plates are sitting atop white dinner plates I'm using as chargers. The white plates are quite old and I do have a set of these.

Here is the peach tea and I'm ready to pour you a glass. The glasses I'm using today are pink depression glass - these glasses are very old. I'm using them only today because it's such a special occasion - you're here! Also, I think it's a nice little touch to tie a ribbon around the handle of my tea pitcher, don't you?

You are looking at a sugar scuttle and I have this delightful accessory because of Susan, our hostess today! As I've said, Susan and I go back to Rate My Space days and she was wowing everybody back then with her tablescapes. She had shown a sugar scuttle on her table and I just fell in love with it. I don't think I had ever seen one before. Lo and behold, the very next day I went to my favorite little thrift shop and this little cutie was just sitting there calling my name. I snatched it up in a heart beat, brought it home and shined it up! Now it didn't have the little scoop that should be with it, but a little sugar spoon works just fine! Isn't it just the most darling thing?

The flower arrangement was made by me ~ just stuck some faux flowers in a white tea pot. Some of you probably say no no no to faux. But I say yes yes yes these work just fine ( I couldn't think of anything to fit here that would rhyme with 'yes' ) As I've said before, don't hate me ~ I love my faux flowers and my faux flowers love me!

This is a pretty little crystal candy dish that is just perfect for a few extra ice cubes. Isn't it nice when you can use something you already have in a totally different way?

I have a double crystal candlestick that is holding two little votive cups with votive candles inside. We girls just love to have a little candlelight, even in the light of day.

Hope you have enjoyed looking at my cookie party table! So pull up a chair and...
I'll give you a cookie ~ peanut butter cookies sitting atop a hand painted glass platter. I told you I would serve food last week. Cookies are food, aren't they? I love my peanut butter cookies and I know you can absolutely love peanut butter cookies!!!
uh oh...
Chloe Dawn smells the cookies and of course she wants one! Open wide, my little blurry fuzzy face!!


Hope you've enjoyed my little Tablescape today. Please drop by to see Susan and view the other beautiful tables.





I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
Cookie Song


Cookies cookies listen while we sing to you
Cookies cookies listen while we sing to you
Any one can make a bed
Anyone can sleep
But it takes a cookie to make the day complete!!!!!
Sooooo cookies cookies listen while we sing to youuuuu!!!
