The 79th Teapot and Tea Things Paris and Fun


Welcome to the  79th,

 Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday!..,




             "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" 
                                                                                                                    Cyndi Lauper

                                                                       

The weather this week has been unpredictable. 
Cool,
              windy, 
                  mild,
                       rain,
                            sunny,
                                cloudy
                                             and foggy.
This has made for interesting photography.
Use a flash.....don't use a flash
Shadows where you don't want them
Glare where you don't want it
Inconsistant results....a few duds, (quite a few).
Why did I keep attempting to photograph the elusive?
Fun!!  Yes I was having fun!
Hope you have fun around the tea table, too.

Where else but Paris Enjoy some fun


A coffee mug on a saucer
Why not....a little different



Or....use a teacup and saucer to serve a
soup or dessert







Vintage lace for contrast







Set of 4 plates of different hotels in Europe
Home Sense, two days ago








I made a stand for the Eiffle Tower in the first photo
Turn a cup upside down and place a large plate on top.
(see first picture!)



                                                        Black and white cream and sugar



Like the weather this week I changed my mind
The cyrstal appeals to me more
Or maybe...  Which do you prefer?



Who is that mademoiselle?


She once lived with my Aunt Orpha.
I adopted her a few years ago when she had no place to go.
We both miss Auntie still.








Oh-la-la red polka dot teapot
Home Sense, two days ago
Discounted $9.99



Ecclesiastes 3:13 New Living Translation (NLT)

13 And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.





What would one be served at tea time in Paris??
Come back for Foodie Friday  and discover what I chose






If you have a moment to linger I invite you to stop in to The Silken Purse 

 to see what my co hostess, Wanda, has for us to savour.



The more the fun!

We don't want to miss a single teacup or teapot!

  14. There does seem to be more light and shadows to deal with - I suppose it is the slant of the sun this time of the year - you've set a gorgeous table - the flowers look like a spectacular hat! Thank you for sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
    God Bless,
    Kathy
