Sweet Dreams! Bedtime Tea

I wanted to relax before retiring for the night and chamomile tea helps!  As you can see from other posts I have been painting our gathering family room.  I have found many things "hidden" in cabinets and drawers that I had not seen for awhile.  I love to use the unexpected for common items.  I found in my treasures this vintage hand stitched quilted picture in a very heavy old barn frame.  It seems to fit right it with the things in the family room..sooo I thought I might try to use it has a tea tray for my night time tea.  





The colors are my favorite!  The new found "tray" is probably vintage 1970's is my guess.  



It certainly is large enough  to sit on my ottoman and hold all the goodies!  I also found a vintage oil and vinegar set.  I used one of them for my flowers...a girl must have flowers with her tea!



The Teapot I have had for a long time.  It has a Rooster embossed on the front.  Not the right time of day for roosters, but love that red!



MUCH  to my pleasant surprise I found a redware plate with one of my favorite sayings, "Home is where the heart is."  




My little teacup is a hand thrown piece of pottery that has a sweet little flower on the front.  The inside is glazed a cobalt greenish glaze. 



Since it is late I chose to eat just a very light snack of grapes, a few strawberries, and cheese.  It did hit the spot!





Sweet dreams!
