have you ever seen an old tea service table...

Hello on this glorious, sun shiny day in California.. Hope it is where you are today as well.. The sun makes me happy, and so much more energetic..I wanted to share with you ,all my"pinky peeps", my tea service table.. Have you ever seen or heard of these ?! My cousin, who has everything, is the first one to own one of these that I know.. When I saw hers I had to have one... I hunted for 2-3 yrs.., had almost forgotten about it, when I walked into a friends sweet shoppe, and this table greeted me at the front door.. she said "buy mee", and of course I flipped, and left with her in my truck.. "gotta have a truck"..hahaha..My friend had bought her the day before at an estate sale, cleaned her up, and she was waiting for meee..There is beveled glass all around, the door swings open I have pretty dishes and such inside, and a pretty lamp, so you can see inside at night.. Sweeet !!! The table on top lifts off, as a serving tray (for tea).. You can see I don't lift this off ever cuz it's covered in pretties.. (cluttered), but I LoVe my clutter.. I've now admitted this.. I LoVe to look at beautiful things.. It's a sickness and I admit to this.. Isn't this the first step to recovery.. admitting guilt or problem..hahaha..BUT, I can't help it !!! What a joy to find something that you've been on the hunt for !! Hope you all are having a wonderful day, creating, and making everything beautiful !! Maybe you're out treasure hunting right now..Have a blessed, happy, super Sunday..Keep looking up and around you for all your blessings, They're always right in front of our faces.. hugs to each of you, ~tea~xo

Hoping your all doing well, and feeling blessed this very day.. Do something to make you feel good, and warm and fuzzy inside.. Blessings to you all !! More soon..

Pretty Blingey Cottagey Store...

Hello to all my sweet lady friends,
I have to share with you where I went today.. It was the Spring show at Debra's Cottage in Costa Mesa.. This is the biggest shoppe I've ever been to, and you all know how many I visit.. It's a big warehouse turned Cottage boutique, and boy, you could spend a day in here !! So many pretty areas to visit, and believe me when I say, something for every taste..This store has been featured in Romantic Homes a few times, and advertised always in there..There is so much eye candy, and each display is simply charming.. I've tried to show you a few of my favorite booths in here..But, there really is soo many.. The ladies who work in here, are so wonderful and sweet.. For those of you familiar with "Old Towne Orange" Sara, from the Orange Mercantile, has a few booths in here now.. So good to see and talk to her..Alot of familiar shoppe owners have spaces here.. It was a wonderful outing today, and I did grab up some treasures.. I was thrilled to get some old lace and linens too, for a fairly good price.. Hope you enjoy looking, and if you are ever down this way, you have to stop in and say hello.. So worth the effort.. Hoping you're all enjoying your Super, Saturday, and soo hope your able to fit in something fun to do.. Soo good for the soul.. Don't you think ?! Blessings to each of you this very day.. Big,Big hugs ~tea~xo

Had to go outside this morning...

Good Fabulous friday all my sweet friends,
Gosh, I'm feeling sooo overwhelmed, and kinda anxious today, soo I had to go out in the yard and have some play time.. Pulled a few weeds, trimmed a little, and just felt good to have the sun shine on my back.. Nothing helps me more, than a little sunshine sometimes.. It's suppose to be a beautiful week-end, in the 80's, so I will continue out here tomorrow.. Love to play out there.. My herbs are growing wild already.. The lavender smells heavenly..When I'm outside, it makes me realize there truly is a Lord, and He makes everything so beautiful, and anew.. That's what I needed today.. Hope you all have a beautiful, fun, hopefully sunshiney week-end.. Feel HIS warmth in all you do ..Chat more soon... hugs ~tea~

Well, as you can imagine, I'm still playing with my pretty cabinet.. I LoVe getting new-found treasures..I had some of my sweet "painted sugarey pink "jars, that Rebecca,from a gathering place has made up for me out and about,so I thought I would share.. I have an obsession for vintage or vintage reproduction type jars, they are soo sweet, filled with my favorite pink candys, or pink sugar,anything pink..they're is something so yummy about them.. These are just little ones I have around, I don't want you to EveN see all the large ones in my kitchen, filled with pink cookies, and snacks.. You would think I was really "over the top"and maybe need to seek professional help..hahaha.. Like I've said, at least I admit to my compulsion ?! Hope you enjoy sneaking a peak of more.. It all makes me sooo happy, and well, tickles my lil' heart.. Wishing you a restful, peaceful evening.. more soon.. hugs to you ~tea~xo

My new found "sugarey pink"treasure...

Hello all my sweet friends.. Okay "the reveal,"Soo here it is !! I have to say I "copy catted" my sweet bestest friend Rebecca, she came home with one of these a couple days ago, and showed me a picture.. I had to have one like that !! So, this Saturday, I went treasure hunting with a couple friends.. We all found wonderful finds, BUT, we didn't have room for my treasure, I went home and put it in my truck..I am in LOVE with this.. Mine was in great shape, and already painted a sugareypink, can you believe it.. It was at one time painted green, and this shows through in places.. It really looks lovely, and I am thrilled to the moon with it !!! I was told they put these in homes in the kitchen corners to hold extra food and dishes, since there was not room to store much in those rooms.. The lady whose booth I bought from says they are from the 30's-40's..in most of these older homes..I LOVE how they did the lovely frame work around the edges.. It's very heavy, and the back of it shows where it was a built in.. Amazing.. I put before, I decorated and then after.. I hope you love it as much as I do !! Don't you think all my pretty painted vintage items from Sweet Rebecca look wonderful on it !! It kinda all just blends.. I've already added and taken away from it, so, I'm sure I'll be playing with it the next few days..I'm always sooo excited to find a "PERFECT" for me piece of the past.. Happy treasure hunting to all you sweet friends.. More soon.. hugs ~tea~xo
