Second on the 2nd for June…Irish Tea

it is time again for Elizabeth’s second look at a favorite blog post from our archives and since it is also T Stands for Tuesday I thought I would select a favorite post that had to do with tea and combine the two …

  2. I enjoyed this second look on tea day Patty! It is always fun to revisit a craft project–yours makes me want to raid my box of old cutlery! Have a wonderful day.

  3. I LOVE that wee cup and teapot set ❤ 😀
    I also like your altered teaspoon very much. I am always amazed when I see the beautiful things people such as yourself can create from mundane everyday things 😀
    Thank you for your very sweet comment on my post 😀 Happy T Day and Happy June to you too {{Hugs}} xo

  4. Those Paper Whimsey girls are simply MADE to be used in a project like this one; It’s also been a long time since I’ve decorated a spoon and mine never looked this good. Yours is not just impressive, it is beautiful. I especially like the beads (old earrings) you used to make the danglies (I realize that’s not a word, but it makes sense to ME).

    Thanks for joining both T Stands For Tuesday and Second on the 2nd with this sheer beauty from the past.

  5. I think T also stands for “tea for two”! Your spoon is amazing – aren’t you the clever one!!!!!

  6. Lovely spoon…glad you shared it for your second look. I thought about combining my posts as well but I’ve been so neglectful of my blog lately I figured it was better to do separate ones. 🙂
    I like the floral overlay on your tea set too. Nicely done.
    Happy T day!

    ps…I think the alfalfa’s secret is just alfalfa that has been chopped and made into little brickettes. It’s kid and pet safe with no chemicals.

  11. So glad you are sharing this post again-that teacup and pot are to die for-so beautiful! But it is that gorgeous spoon that completes the picture. Gotta love those Whimsy girls… and what a great quote today too. Happy T day-hope you’re not getting too washed out by the rain like we are even though it is MUCH needed.

  19. this is really worth the “second look”! and it Looks so fresh like you had made it yesterday. going through the older comments i noticed some names who no longer seem to be in blogland – the times they are a-changing…

    clever flower texture on the tea pot – i also needed a “second look” to see it is not real;)

  24. “it has been a while since I altered a piece of cutlery” – I’ve never heard or seen altered cutlery, and your use of teabags is second to none. I’ll just admire it and be amazed at your artistic ingenuity again.
    And Mr. Magpie was and is a treasure.
