I am so thankful for Tea Cup Tuesday




I am cheating this week by repeating a post from 2012.  Life is just pretty hectic right now but I want to be sure you know how thankful I am for all of you.  This says how I feel so I hope those who remember it will understand and those who are new to my blog will enjoy it.



As we get close to our Thanksgiving I want to say a huge thank you to the ladies who serve as hostesses for the various Tea Cup Tuesday events on line.  I know I wouldn't be here without them.
And for my followers who join me each week to see what I have found to show, thanks to you all! Your kind comments make it even better!  And to the participants of the other tea parties.  What inspiration and fun are to be found!  Love it all!

I went out into my antique shop and started looking for things to display that would look like Thanksgiving.  No turkeys to be found but here are a few things that will look nice on the table I think.  The book I have shown " Autumn Accents" is one my own.  It is by Thimbleberries, designer of many great quilting fabrics.

The cute chicken casserole from Japan could be used to hold gravy, or a small serving of some vegetables.
For dessert, pie would look great on these dishes.  I am going to show the mark but have no real idea what it says.  If you know please let me know in the comments.  It is obviously some sort of gold.  And the set is made in the USA.


Also made in the USA is the large gold creamer.  I didn't get a close up picture of it but if you look closely in the overall picture you can see it.


And finally, we must have a cup and saucer so I selected this one from Royal Vale pottery.  It has a lovely yellow flower and nice fall colors.



I want to wish all my USA tea cup followers a Happy Thanksgiving.  And to those from other countries that don't celebrate this day please know I am thankful for all of you.


                I have joined with the following Tea Cup Tuesday Tea Parties.

                 These may not be available every week so check to be sure.

Hope you will visit them too.
