Happy 2nd Birthday to Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi at the Rose Chintz Cottage

I'm caught by the TEA BUG - and am joining Sandi over at the Rose Chintz Cottage today to celebrate her  2nd Birthday with Tea Time Tuesday's Tea Parties!

Please gently glide over to her place by clicking on the Rose Chintz Cottage link above to visit all the other Tea Parties today.

I'm going to share the following Tea Party that is hosted for a group of young ladies that I'm blessed by, my neighbor girls!

Also, you'll get to meet my little Princess Mignon Abbie, my little Sheltie Princess.  She loves joining in on the Tea Parties with the girls.

For years now, wherever I've lived, I've opened my home up for my little neighbor girls, no matter how young or old.  One as young as 3 when she began coming over for weekly tea.  

Even though they probably feel they are the ones that are getting something out of it; I gain so much more from them.

Without further adieu~ and no further narration needed, 
Welcome to my Tea Party


~CC Catherine

Have a "Tealightful" day!

OH DEAR, if the girls were not cute enough, THE DOG is in on it too, with his/her OWN TEA CUP BOWL!!!! Oh CC, you are a delight, and this past Saturday was a DREAM and a wonderful TWO HOURS of contact that I hope will continue on. MANY THANKS AGAIN for this meeting, for the love.

I RAISE MY TEA CUP TO YOU DEAREST! My favorite is Harney and Sons "PARIS" oh it is so good with a drop of milk.

LOVE ON! Anita

What a fabulous gift for your neighbors and friends to be able to come to your home for tea. Only wish I lived nearby! Love the hats on the girls -- absolutely precious.

This is so wonderful of you to do this for the young ladies in your neighborhood. They probably don't realize that they are learning manners and how to conduct themselves as guests because you make it so fun.

What a wonderful bunch of tea friends! Even the doggy got in on the tea party. Very cute and I'm sure those young ladies simply adore you for inviting them to tea. Thank you so much for joining me for TTT's birthday celebration. It is lovely to have you! Have a wonderful day.


C'est moi Claudette said...

Well lordy be it's CC. Now I know why you went to bed at 6AM, lol.
I would have LOVED to be at your Tea Party CC. Those girls know a great neighbour when they see one, and that's you : )
Sweet little Abbie girl. Look at her party hat and special cup and saucer. How come macho doggy wasn't invited? I guess he would have upset the tea cups, lol.
It was soooo nice talking to you today. You always brighten my day. Do you know I got off the phone and counted how many topics we hit on? ...17, and I might have missed a few. OMG... you talked to Anita for 2 hrs? I can see how time just slips away when someone talks to you CC. You are always so interesting, full of wisdom, love and one can always see the smile on your face through the wires (although we don't have too many wires anymore).
Thanks for all the links. I've already been on a couple, and no deals ; (
Oh well, sometimes things aren't meant to be.
C'est la vie

Hi Catherine,
what a tealightful tea party. The girls and even the dressed up dog are so cute guests. I can imagine the fun to host such a sweet party. Thank you for sharing this fun.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello CC, Your little neighbor girls are adorable. All dressed for tea too. It is obvious they are loving every minute. I know you are too.

I wanted to use my tea cozy but it just didn't match. Next time. Sandi picked roses as her theme so I had to go pink. I'm glad you liked what I did. It was fun. However, your tea party was real...and you even had a sweet pup who attended. Lovely.

I love you back sista friend,
Jeanne xoxoxo

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Catherine~ It's always nice stopping by for a visit.
What a delight this wee tea. I adore your lil furry guest No doubt he had a great time too.

I hope you can stop by to see the Valentine surprises I've got in stored. This week starting with...Pain au Chocolat. I'll put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea.
Sweet wishes,

Hey CC...how cute is that. Those little girls look like they are having the Best time. Look how cute they are dressed.
Your dog in the hat is hysterical.

I used to have little tea parties with my grandgirls too before I came up here. I miss that.
Barry isn't much into tea parties (tee,hee)
Maybe if I put on one of my teddies he'd come >.ha ha ha

Oh my goodness, I have fallen off the "phone wagon". I need to make some calls and catch up with you guys.
I told Claudie once, that although I LOVE YOU GIRLS, and do love to chat, I am not a real "phone person"
don't know why??

anyway, wish we all lived close enough for our very own tea parties. I like talking face to face !!! Our tea times would become infamous.
