Tea Stands for Tuesday - 1/10/17

Sometimes I can't believe how fast Tuesday rolls around.  A couple of days ago we were at the River House.

I was sitting on the front porch having an early morning cup of coffee

Looking at all the bare trees and the red sunrise.  You've heard "Red skies in the morning, sailors take warning" haven't you?  Yes, we've had lots of rain and it is threatening to flood.  I can only cross my fingers.

On a more cheerful note, let me show you my latest thrift purchase for the house there.  Dishes.  I don't need more dishes, I just have a tiny weakness.....For Dishes.

They are not old  They are by Susan Winget and part of a set called Garden of Olives. I found them listed as salad/dessert plates but they are going to be perfect sandwich plates for me.  Three plates/$2.  I wonder if I will ever stumble across the 4th plate in the set in my thrift store hunts.  

Lets take our drinks over to the Altered Book Lover blog and find out what has been happening since last Tuesday.  The people who post there seem to always have something interesting going on.


  1. Those are adorable plates and I know what you mean about an addiction to dishes.. Hubby is always making fun of mine. He thinks all we need are paper plates :) Happy T Day!!!

  2. Love those plates, would have bought them too! Hope it doesn't flood where you are. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. I have heard of that saying and my fingers are crossed for you that it does not flood... We are in for several days of rain too this week ... if the weatherman can be trusted....We need the rain but not flooding... Love your coffee and sunrise photos.. So good to see you this Tday with your thriftstore finds...What a great deal! Happy happy t day! hugs! deb

  4. What a lovely place to greet the new day.
    I share your attraction to plates and china.
    Great deal you for for those lovelies.
    Enjoy Darla and Happy T Day

  5. Sorry I'm late visiting. Not too long after I visited you yesterday, my old computer had a major meltdown, and I had to reboot it twice in order in order to keep it running.. I was able to visit a couple of people, then it shut down again. I gave up and went to bed. I'll be glad when I get my new computer back. I keep hoping it will be soon.

    I keep reading about the floods in CA, and I worry about mud slides and devastation. I hope nothing like that happens to you, because this is a beautiful old place with a charming front porch. It's a perfect place for that first cup of coffee in the morning.

    Those dishes are lovely. I think I've seen some like that here in Wichita. If I run across one, I'll send it to you.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely sunrise, your beautiful plates, and your coffee with us for T this Tuesday.

  6. Beautiful sunrise. I have been thinking about you with the weather reports I see. Hope the flooding stays away.

  7. Such a beautiful red sunrise through the tree branches :-). Your dishes are gorgeous and such a find too! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  8. I know that ominous saying very well. But a red sky at night is gorgeous even so! Love your little plates. I would have picked them up too:)Happy T day!

  9. Adorable plates, I'll keep my eyes pealed for that 4th one.
    Happy T-day

  10. Dishes are pretty tempting- I would love to have a set for each holiday and season and then some spare. But besides buying them, where would you store them unless you lived in a crazy mansion. I do love your dishes. Hope you find the last of the set someday. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  11. Lovely photos from your home. The dishes I think I would have had to take home with me if I'd seen them, they look beautiful.
    Happy T Day

  12. Ah, those plates are gorgeous Darla, and perfect for a sandwich. What a bargain at $2! I hope you don't get a flood, that would be just too awful. Fingers crossed.

  13. hmmm...makes me feel like I need to stop at the thrift store! so pretty!! I don't need any more dishes either, but it's a so hard to resist such pretty things! happy T day!

  14. I love those early morning photos! The dishes certainly are beautiful and will make your sandwiches something special! Belated Happy T Day! Chrisx

  15. I love the plates! What a great buy - even though you're missing one. Happy T Day, Darla!

  16. What a beautiful view!

    Some things, like those dishes, aren't meant to be resisted :)

  17. I can imagine you couldn't resist those cute dishes. It's a great find! Well done!
    Sorry I'm so late in commenting, I've been away from my desk.
