FABBY: Tea is Served in the Kitchen

Hello sweet friends!

       I'm starting this Monday by inviting you to have some tea in my kitchen, my fave place and where we spend most of our days, eating, cooking, baking, watching the news, or enjoying the view out the windows... so why not invite you too for tea! 

I can serve you coffee, tea and some goodies, whatever you prefer. I can make you little sandwiches too! (my wishful thinking, pretend).

I hope you like my tea setting for you... so please, come inside!

What made me invite you for tea is that I've been tweaking a little... so now my coffee station is by the TV, in front of our breakfast nook. Before I had cook books and my cookie jar in this space.

I chose for you my Mil's antique teacups from her wedding china and are under the cloche. They also have pink roses as the table topper.

Some goodies in my 'Lady Carlyle' tier and some cheese in that small covered stand.

Now I'm keeping the 'cookbooks of the moment' here, next to the cooktop where I had the coffee station before. 

The cook-book at your left was written by my dear Mil and the other I bought from the volunteers for the 'Cancer Society, FASEC.' Next is my Cookie jar I have forever. 

Our kitchen is not big, but not small either and I love to spend time here, it's really very comfortable and warm, I think.
The door you see leads to the laundry room.

People here have the custom to serve on warm days, some cold fruit sherbet before tea, or even ice-cream...whatever you prefer!

Some of you might remember my Chinese teapot collection I keep in the window sill... I so enjoy looking at them.

Coffee is ready in the back, if you rather.

I love this little pantry for my everyday use as I have a wall to wall closet pantry in the laundry room as well.
The 'slit' pantry, next to my double ovens contains all the things I need for baking right at hand.

Thank you so much sweet and kind friends for coming over for tea, you always make my day!

Thanking the gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties.
