Before the rain started a couple of days ago I went out thrifting by myself, just to relax.I found this darling Fairy I thought perfect for redoing .When I got her home.I decided she should stay as is.Her wings are a bit small ?
One more For My collection,Never hurts at half off  for 50 cents.
5 piece half off at $3.50

Bluish lavender lace for paper crafts .
Now Please Come along for Tea On The Sea.While thrifting I found a book about the Titanic Ocean Liner. Polar,The Titanic Bear.A story about a boy and real photos of the Titanic.So this is how My Tea At Sea starts.My husbands not invited this time.He says "How Morbid."Well, too bad for Him.Just wait tell He sees Me all dressed and ready for Tea.He'll take that one back.I'll be gorgeous!

This is My dress.That was easy.Hard part was which wrap?

I love it Denise and although I am deathly terrified of dark, deep water, I would love a cup of tea served in that elegant dining room!
Hope all has been well with you and you are keeping busy!
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for tea...

It's all so pretty, especially the picture of the woman all in white, holding the white muff.

Now I'm in the mood for tea!

Hi Denise,
I discovered your comment on Ruth's blog. Your husbands comment made me smile, as I thought just the same, when I thought about this tea time motto. But they had surely tea during the good days and so I chose that idea, too. You will look fabuluous with that dress and take all the wrappings with you. You will need different ones for each tea time at the titanic! Thank you for this nice tea time, I enjoyed it very much.
Best greetings, Johanna

You will have a hard time deciding on what to wear! Your husband WILL be sorry! LOL! But enjoy your tea! What a wonderful book to find!

Beth said...

Love your dining room. What a splendid and elegant place for tea!

Denise, I would love to have tea in that lovely dining room! The tea length dress is stunning and as for the wrap, I would love the fur trimmed capelet and muff! I have a 'thing' for muffs! Lovely post and thank you for joining me for Tea on the Titanic.

I can understand your husband's feelings about the tea, but as we have all done today, we commemorate the people on board the Titanic with respect.

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
