Time for Tea?

Hello, Dear Ones! I set up another little useful vignette in my kitchen and went kinda neutral with the Fallness.
I poked my big ole white platter up on a plate stand for a background and also because there is a metal phone jack on the subway tile put in by the previous owners. So...I try to cover it up when I can.
 Okie dokie! I was walking through Marshalls not long ago and of course I was in the clearance aisle and saw this darling little cow couple creamer and sugar bowl. For $3.99 I had to have them.
 Tell me the truth, could you have passed up this little couple? Look at the painting on their little bodies and the little tiny dot eyes! Love love love!
 Now to show you the usefulness of this vignette. This sweet little sugar bowl holds...
 Fake sugar! Just a perfect spot for me as the cups and mugs are in the cabinet just above this space.
 Then I've used a blue and white canister, pieces don't have to match you know, and it holds my favorite tea bags. Tea bags and fake sugar right where I need them.
Then just because, I've placed one of my scales down and poked a pun'kin on top! This works for me. I also wanted you to see the cute little faces on my new little cows again! Are you ready for a cup of tea?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Have A Cuppa Tea

 Granny's always ravin' and rantin'
And she's always puffin' and pantin'
And she's always screamin' and shoutin'
And she's always brewin' up tea
Grandpappy's never late for his dinner
'Cos he loves his leg of beef
And he washes it down with a brandy
And a fresh made cup of tea
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
If you feel a bit under the weather
If you feel a little bit peeved
Take granny's stand by potion
For any old cough or wheeze
It's a cure for hepatitis, it's a cure for chronic insomnia
It's a cure for tonsillitis, and for water on the knee
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Tea in the morning, tea in the evening, tea at supper time
You get tea when it's rainin', tea when it's snowin'
Tea when the weather's fine
You get tea as a mid day stimulant
You get tea with your afternoon tea
For any old ailment or disease
For Christ sake have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Whatever the situation, whatever the race or creed
Tea knows no segregation, no class nor pedigree
It knows no motivations, no sect or organization
It knows no one religion, nor political belief
Have a cuppa tea, have a cuppa tea
Have a cuppa tea, for Christ sake have a cuppa tea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Rosie Lea
