Tea Party Friends 4th of July Tea

Happy 4th of July!

Did you have Tea Party Friends ?

Victorian Children  fabric found at Joann's Fabric

 Did you share  cups of milky tea during endless summer days?

 Woofer presides over the table.

 When your world was bound by the porch swing and the garden gate...  

"Shall I pour," asks Woofer. 
Dragon fly fairy lights in a mason jar are from Dollar Tree (where else)
"Milk and honey please," squeaks Ikea Mouse. 

Tin Snips cut a notch in the lid for the cord.
 The battery pack is easier to reach outside the jar!

The blue transfer ware  cup, British Countryside still bears it's thrift shop tag $3.00.

 "How lovely," Raggedy Anne exclaims. "Thank you so for having us to tea."

Victorian 4th of July post card images can be found at The Graphic Fairy,  Over the Rain beau, and Altered Artifacts.

Wishing you a safe and happy July4th weekend!

And share it with you

  1. Thanks for the "shout-out". I didn't do a thing to deserve this -- the little price card sign just caught my eye at the antique fair as I love anything plaid. Wish we could buy it for 23 cents a yard today!!! Thanks again. Sally

  2. I wish I could join you for tea today! What a perfect, patriotic setting you've shared with us, from the banner, to your pretty transferware. Happy 4th to you.

  3. Happy 4th of July, Susan! A lovely patriotic table complete with blue and red transferware teacups which I love! Thank you for stopping by for tea.

  8. Happy LATE 4th Susan!!!! CUTE decor!!!!

  9. I love all the red white and blue at this time of year. Our celebration here is themed in red and white - isn't it fun?
    I couldn't comment on your last post, as I don't have google+. I just wanted to say 'congratulations' to the newly married couple. It's always a grand day when we can celebrate love and commitment! I loved the cake and the centrepieces!

  10. Very pretty tea table, Susan! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Congrats on the wedding! I love the cake.

  11. Love your little tea party. I did a double-take with your first picture -- I thought that was a real dog! the transferware, vintage July 4th decor, and little tea party participants are charming.

  12. Beautiful tea Susan! Wish I was sitting next to you sipping. I loved Sally's tag too! Great job! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
