  6. La Tea Dah - I've added my third week to the links list, but I have to confess that although I have visited everyone on the list thus far, I haven't left any comments except on yours. This is due solely to lack of time on my part this week. We are going away for a week's holiday and I'm trying to get things done before we go. I wanted to get my post done, but commenting on everyone else's might have to wait until we return. Suffice to say that as usual I've loved what everyone else has posted!

  13. I'd leave a picture if I could figure out how. i have my grandma's blue and white danish floral tea cups and demi tass cups hanging from a little shelf. My hutch has a tea pot collection on it very colorful. I just love all kinds of dishes to use for decorating.

  18. Oops,
    Looks like I did the wrong kind of posts this week. I just read through the list carefully and see that my tables set for tea should be in the May spot. Sorry about that. I'll try to be better at reading and following directions now :)

  28. Thanks for hosting this Tea-a-thon! I have enjoyed being involved and viewing all the other blogs! What a great opportunity for me, as a new blogger, to get to meet others! I appreciate you doing this! And I have added more pics to my blog in relation to the challenge, which has led me on quite a journey down memory lane! In case I didn't note before, I absolutely love the picture of the tea party outdoors on your blog...just stunning! :) If you get a chance, stop over for a visit! ~Rhonda

  30. La Tea Dah, if you're not worn out from reading all of the blog-a-thon postings for this week, I added an extra one that you might enjoy since my find resulted from someone else's Week One posting.

  35. Hi, I think I am the subject of the smiley face! The smiley face shows up by your name when you link to a specific post. I link to my post for your bog-a-thon so you don't have to scroll down to find the post but are taken straight to the post.

    To do this after you have created your post and published it you click on the title of your post and that will change the link address at the top of your page. You then highlight that address, right click on it, click on copy. Then go to the host page, in this case Gracious Hospitality, go to the end of the post where Mr. Linky is, enter your blog name, then paste your address in the space provided.
    After you enter it a smiley face will appear next to your entry!

  36. Hello La Tea Da,
    I found your blog yesterday and fell in love. Strong words I know but, it's true! If it's OK with you I would like to join your Tea-A-Thon. I signed into the list but, I made a mistake while signing in and I was wondering if you could fix it for me. I'm on the list as #'s 58 & 59. Would you please delete 58 as it's the same as 59.
    Thank you and I look forward to bloging along on your Tea-A-Thon!
    Happy sipping!

  38. This is my first chance to participate as I have been caring for my MIL with Alzheimers but she is back home with FIL now. I have been blessed and encouraged by all things tea and have finally been able to put up a post at my site. Thanks so much for the beautiful web ring of sites I still have yet to explore!
