♥♥♥ Tea with Ms. C. ♥♥♥
The day after I got home from helping with post-op care of my sister, with her knee replacement, my granddaughter, Ms. C. got BRACES put on. (PINK & TURQUOISE)
Poor little thing had no idea how much they were going to hurt!
She came to Nana Rett's house to spend the day, getting sympathy & comfort with a tea party.
We tried to incorporate the colors of her braces into the table.
Her favorite place mat has all the countries of the world labeled & we spent some time finding all the places of origin for our tea party.
It helped to distract her from the discomfort.
The miniature vintage sugar bowl & creamer are from England, as are the intricate sugar cube tongs.
The teapot, that she picked to use, came from Japan.
Please note the very *fancy* "Hello Kitty" plates & napkins she chose!
Those came from China.
I always let her pick which teacup she wants to use & this time, she chose the pretty floral with the gold bands.
I told her it was a gift from her Great Aunt Ruthie, who now lives in Maui.
We had a little trouble finding that island on the map...it is so tiny!
This is the closest thing to a "tablescape" that I've had time to do lately.
I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish meme as well as
The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sundays & for the first time, Artful Affirmations for her Tea Cup Tuesday & Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.
My sister is doing MUCH better after a change in pain medication. I hope to do a very EYE OPENING, educational post on that subject soon.
Thank for stopping by The Gazebo House today.
My sister & I so appreciated everyone's prayers for her knee replacement surgery.
I will get to stop by your blogs to visit just as soon as I can catch up on my household chores & grocery shopping.
