To Do In The Dining Room

Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm still fiddling around in the dining room and wanted to share with you the little vignette I've set up on my olden server.

 I've heard this said before in Blogland ~ feast you most gorgeous peepers on my 'wall of china'.
Well, in my silliness of talk, that is, my 'wall of china'.

 Okie dokie. This is the vignette I've put together using my Tea Pot of Blogland.
 When I first started blogging, almost five years ago, I kept seeing this little Tea Pot all over Blogland and gave it a name - the Tea Pot of Blogland. 
She is a pretty little thing with her aqua color, lovely flowers, swirls and curls.
I poked her on top of my square milk glass cake stand. 
She's happy there upon her pedestal.
 At the base of the cake stand is a little birdie figurine.
A little bitty teeny weeny one.
That's a very olden doily made by my grandmother a long time ago.
If you look closely on the left you can see a little bit of raveling.
I need to get out my hook and fix it ~ soon!
 Also, I poked down a cute little tea pot stirring spoon 
just in case you want a touch of sweetness with your tea.
 As time moved on, I found one plate and the sugar and creamer 
to go with my little Tea Pot of Blogland. 
More darlingness, right?
Then I found this little pitcher to go along with my Tea Pot of Blogland. although I don't know what it's supposed to be used for.
Then I found two mugs to go with my Tea Pot of Blogland.
Alas, I haven't seen any more of these pieces. 
But I'm not sad because I'm going to have a mug of tea and I'm asking you to join me.

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 screaming and shouting,
And she's always brewing 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,
Halleluja, halleluja, halleluja, Rosie Lea
Halleluja, halleluja, halleluja 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.

Tea in the morning, tea in the evening, tea at supper
You get tea when it's raining, tea when it's snowing.
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 Heaven's sake have a cuppa tea.
~ sung by my Tea Pot of Blogland
