Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful and memorable Memorial Day. It was very quiet around our home, but we enjoyed it nonetheless.
I am looking forward to sharing My Tea Time Shelves with you today. My shelves are one of my favorite areas in our home. I like to change them out for the seasons and holidays. Most recently I have enjoyed using my thrifted tea cups and saucers all around our home as decor. This is one more way for me to display and share what I love, along with using some vintage items I own.
This is is one more way for me to display and share what I love, along with using some vintage items I own.
I filled the bottom shelf with stacked tea cups and saucers, as is the hanging plate. Hanging plate can be as simple as adding hot glue to the back. Like I did here. The left side happens to be all thrifted items.
And the right side were all gifts from my Grandma’s own collection. I did not plan the set up that way. It just happened.
The silver spoons on the right were wedding gifts to Hubby and me. I like leaving the vintage spoon tarnished, as to show the age and use. To me it adds character.
The top shelf has some of my favorite pieces. The tiny, almost red tea cups were handmade by my grandma.
As were the tiny tea bag saucers. She made them to match her Desert Rose Franciscan Ware.
I made a vintage dictionary book page wreath, just for My Tea Time Shelves. The middle is shredded dictionary pages. You can see how I made my first book page wreath right here.
The frame was a gift from a friend. Her boss was redecorating their office and was going to throw it out. Using a little paint and sandpaper, the frame was a perfect fit for my book page wreath, don’t you think???
I like how it looks like a real flower in the center.
My view from our living room.
And this final view is what I see when I am in the kitchen cooking and/or doing the dishes.
My Tea Time Shelves are a focal point in our home. Filling them with pretty dishes makes me smile, as I share them with all who visit and enter our home. What vintage items do you like to share with visitors in your home?
It was nice to have you here today. I hope you were inspired today.
Make it a terrific Tuesday!

Beautiful tea cups and dishes. Beautiful!!
Lovely. Currently all of my teacups are in storage–this makes me miss them, but in a good way.
Thanks Angelique. Maybe you should get a few out just for fun…
Have a great day.
so pretty! I love all the details!
Thanks so much Emily. You are a sweetie.

Hi Meegan – just popping in from Brenda’s blog to enjoy a look at your pretty shelves full of tea-time delights. I love vintage tea cups and pottery and am so intrigued with your grandmother’s tea-cups. Was she a potter in her day? They are beautiful and a wonderful treasure to have. Your blog is lovely.I’ll be by again. Deb (Ontario, Canada)
Thanksd for stopping by DEb. My grandma was not a potter, but she did a lot of work with ceramics. I am so happy you came by. I hope that happens often :)
