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!

So much fun to see hand crafted items used as vintage today. I was a potter from 1970 until 2008, and did as many as 30 Art/Craft shows a year. So many talented people sharing products from their hearts and hands, now replaced by imports. You couldn't have made me smile more. I hope my vintage country pottery has found a place on someone's vintage table.

Love the red teapot! Cheese and fruit sounds perfect before bedtime {or anytime for me.}. Handcrafted items have a charm all their own. I did tole and ceramics for a number of years and it was always a thrill for me to gift a piece to someone special. Thanks for sharing and joining me for Tea Time.

Blessings,
Sandi

Thank you Margie! Yes I did rest well! Not sure if it was the tea or just the fact I was really tired! LOL
