Simple neutrals tea cart....

Here is a simple picture of my old shabby tea cart. I snagged this beauty for $15 on Craigslist! I swear I thought it was a typo, I cannot even believe this gem of a find. It is TOTALLY solid, not rickety and just shabby enough for the space it is used in. This currently resides right between the grand piano and the dining table as a visual buffer between the two spaces, and is truly used as a true tea cart for my many teas I host all through the year.

I change this up too often, usually reflecting the holiday or season. I just recently packed away all my pretty January silvery white frosted wintery pieces. I am sharing an older vigniette from the summer, and will soon be decorating the tea cart in Valentine's decor.

The little basket with a hand painted topiary is made of handmade paper. The bird inside the terrarium on moss is made of stone. The cupid candle holder is from a wedding table of a friend. (She gave them away at the end of the night.) I love to  use it at Christmas and on St. Valentine's Day decor, but even looks good for general year -round use too.

The silk/dried floral arrangment planter is metal. You will probably soon get very sick of seeing all the arrangements I have made in future blogs! The linens are all very old, and the stoneware copper bowl on bottom you can just barely get a glimpse.


Heading on over to Faded Charm for White Wednesday!

Showin off at  Primp Your Stuff Wednesday!
