Sweet Tea Decor!

Using vintage silver sugar bowls, silver spoons, hand made vintage book page rosettes and numbered tags, I made these two adorable Sweet Tea Decorations! I am listing one for sale on my sidebar, the other one, I am keeping for myself. If you are interested, just email me and I can give you more information.
Sale, $22 + shipping

See the adorable little key?
I've got to keep this one...Why? Because after making the paper flower, and attaching it as I was putting it together, I noticed the word "Teresa" at the top of the flower.  Look closely above and you will see it. I go by Terry since I prefer it over my birth name...Theresa! Don't you just love kismet?

fate; destiny.
This one I am keeping
Oh so cute and sweet vintage. This would make such a wonderful gift for a vintage lover, and tea drinker.

  1. Hi Terry! I'm a new follower {having gotten here, I don't know how}, but I just wanted to tell you that I am realling enjoying going back and reading all your past posts. You are very talented and I love your MacKenzie-Childs copies; they are a favorite of mine as well. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts in the future!

    big hugs,

  12. Found your blog through Granny's Attic! Love your style! So vintage and fun! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas! :)

  13. This is really a charming project! Very sweet! Hopped over from Savvy Southern Style...

  14. What a great project and would make a lovely gift for someone to give someone special!
    Thanks so much on the info on the paint that you sent to me! I really appreciate it!


  15. I love the tea decor (and I love stash tea). Thanks for sharing at my Swing into Spring party.

  18. Such a sweet little pitcher Terry!!! I love little signs that things are meant to be like that too- how neat!! Thanks for sharing this at FNF! :)

  19. I've got tons of silver at my shop that I just set out as choice, $1 each. We pick up so much of it cheap. This would be an easy way to display a few of the prettier ones at a higher dollar and still have a great turn over!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. I love watching everything you are doing..trying to make some of the stuff,,of course,,yours is better..but I enjoy it so much. i am having trouble viewing your page on Internet Explorer..I switch to Firefox and it works..have any idea why that is? I guess I'm missing something on explorer that won't let the whole page load..oh well..I love your stuff..you do great work


It makes me smile to hear from you!
