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

  3. Shelia,
    Your Tea station is so inviting and makes me want to sit right down with a cup right this minute!
    Truly sweet Lady, you are an amazing inspiration!

  4. You've stumped me with the song! I'll have to look it up because the words are so cute. It sounds like something my Granddaddy would have known!
    Cute cows at that tea station!

  5. The cows are adorable and I would have thought about bringing them home also! Love your sweet vignette!

  6. Hi Shelia, I love it all. The large white platter is wonderful and I adore the blue and white pieces. always, dear one.

    Barb ♥

  7. How cute are those! I don't think i've ever seen a cow sugar piece before. I think they're cute as can be. That's a cute song... I just had a cup of tea- nursing this darn cold and cough of mine.

  8. I would have picked the cow couple up right away too, Sheila. They are so cute! A tea vignette sure comes in handy, doesn't it? Love the blue and white theme. Charming!

    Autumn blessings,

  9. Cute new cows :). Your vignette is really refreshing with all the white and blue.


  10. Love, love, love the pumpkin on the scale! So cheery and seasonal!

  11. Such a warm and happy place, your kitchen and the cute cows fit right in! Kathleen in Az

    1. Thank you so much, Kathleen! Hope you're doing well.

  12. Very sweet cows Sheila. You do have the cutest dishes ever. Loving the blue and white. Thanks so much for your words about our Lacy. We love Schnauzers....I know you are missing your sweet Chloe Dawn.

  13. Shelia, your cows are just adorable! I wouldn't have been able to leave those cuties on the shelf either. The pumpkin on the scale is so sweet and simple. Enjoy your pretty tea station. ♥

  14. Thank you so much for a cup of tea. Love all your pretties in your vignette. The cow creamer and sugar bowl are darling. I got my first cow creamer, it's all in white and I love her.
    Happy Halloween - I know you will be spending it with those two little cuties.

  15. Beautiful vignette in the kitchen. I love all your pieces, specially the blue and white.
    You've made me run to the kitchen and make me some tea!
    Happy Halloween my friend.

  16. Love love love the cows!!! So cute!

  17. Love love love the cows!!! So cute!

  18. Beautiful vignette Shelia, Love your sweet cow creamer couple. They are too cute! I have a large white platter very similar to yours. It does make the perfect backdrop. I'm always trying to cover outlets and phone jacks too. Love your scale topped with the pumpkin. Enjoy the day. xo

  19. Loving the tea display Sheila. The blue and white is really pretty. Happy Fall. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  20. How cute is your vignette Shelia!
    I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy your Halloween.
    Julie xo

  21. Wonderful "camouflage" job! I really wish builders would consult a woman, any woman, even their wives, before they start plunking plugs and outlets here and there at random, don't you? There is always the challenge of trying figure out how to cover it and keep it functional!

  22. Love the whole vignette! Love those cows! Would never know there was a phone jack there. Great cover up!!!

  23. I love this adorable vignette, Sheila...the orange pumpkins really POP in the mix! Darling find the cutest things! Happy Thursday :)

  24. I love the way you just POKE things down here and there. You sure are a good POKER! lol I love how you have pulled it all together and your little cows are cute as can be! That orange pumpkin really plays off the blue perfectly. xo Diana

  25. Shelia, this may be post twice. I apologize if it does. I have your cow sugar and creamer. I've never seen one that is a sugar keeper. You did a great job of creating a vignette that is pretty and functional. That's a great scale too.

  26. This may be my third comment, but I just read my previous comment and saw errors. I don't "have" that cow sugar and creamer. I love it.

  27. Shelia,
    Those are such cute cow creamers, dear friend!!!
    I adore that they are a couple!!!
    Charming little spot for a cup 'o tea!!!


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
