Tea for real...

Hello!!! Welcome to another Tea Tuesday!
Is it just me or do these days seem to come around rather fast!!!;-)
Please pop on over to Kim's Blog SHABBY PINK and PRETTY for her pretty Tea Tuesday and more folks sharing tea with you today!

This is my 'real' tea from Monday afternoon.
Nothing fancy but hit the spot!
This is not a high dollar pot by any means.
It means a lot to me though, Aunt Dot bought it for me!!
Yes she saw the rooster theme and I sprang to mind...;-)
The lil shot glass was Great Aunt Mary's that I put my sweetener bags in it.
Used the cream ware cup, saucer and small dish.
Deb Mumm napkin, all on my old silver tray with vintage doily on it.
The tea finger sammies my DH made for me.
They are yummy and better than a sweet treat...well not 'better' but better for me..;-)

I just slice off what I want.
Yes he is a keeper...for the moment.. hahaha!

Here are the six sweeties we are expecting this coming Sunday!
Five happy fellas and one cute lil gal!

They love tea too...we may just have to have a tea party!!!
Pretty sure Lil Gal will join me in a few;-)

Hope every one is having fun getting ready for Thanksgiving!!!
Don't you just love it??
Roasted Turkey, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pies, collard greens, all the special pickles and relishes we make in the summer just for these occasions!!
Not sure how formal our settings will be this year with so many here to gather around our table but we will be counting our blessing for sure!
