Pink Tea Trivit

Today I'm sharing a closer look of one of my favorite hand painted teapot have seen before - but this time it's getting it's due - being featured!    ♥

It sits upon an old doilie which is then on top of an applique embroidered tablecloth.

I like the way the greens play together.

The lower rim is painted the sweetest shade of light pink.

I sure wish I could paint, crochet and embroider! (No patience, not gonna happen.)

I simply drink my tea and admire this amazing handiwork talent of others, and feel so richly blessed to be surrounded by such beauty!

A Beauty Blessing

by J. O'Donohue

As stillness in stone to silence is wed
May your heart be somewhere a God might dwell.

As a river flows in ideal sequence
May your soul discover time in presence.

As the moon absolves the dark of resistance
May thought-light console your mind with brightness.

As the breath of light awakens colour
May the dawn anoint your eyes with wonder.

As spring rain softens the earth with surprise
May your winter places be kissed by light.

As the ocean dreams to the joy of dance
May the grace of change bring you elegance.

As clay anchors a tree in light and wind
May your outer life grow from peace within.

As twilight fills night with bright horizons
May beauty await you at home beyond.

  1. Hello dear Michelle
    this is gorgeous! thanks so much for coming to visit and for your lovely comment on my forest creatures diy. got me to visit you.
    i like it here and am following you now with gfc. i would be honored if you would like to follow back, but no hard feelings if not :-)

  2. I don't think I've ever seen a teapot trivet before. As in a pretty china one. It is gorgeous! Have a lovely day and weekend! Pamela

  3. Wow! This looks absolutely beautiful! Thanks Michele for visiting me and for your sweet comment. Garam masala is a mixture of dry-roasted & ground spices, containing black pepper, cloves, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and cardamoms. Qasuri meth are dried leaves of the fenugreek plant which has a slight bitter taste. Hope you can find these in the spice section of Pakistani/Indian grocery stores :)

  4. That piece is a beauty. I love the colors.

  5. That is so pretty, Michele! I love the painting on the rim.

  6. What a sweet little piece! It's so pretty with those soft pink flowers.

  7. Gorgeous trivet, pink & green together is my favorite combination.

    Hugs, Cindy

  9. I absolutely love the trivit! The flowers are so dainty and of course pink and green are my favorite colors. I also love the little vignette with the doily, tablecloth and teapot trivit. I think I'm trying to say this is a lovely post, Michele!
    Have a nice weekend! --------- Shannon

  10. The trivet is beautiful!!!! It reminds me of my aunt Kitty's painted china she did for me. Love it!!

  11. Michele, your trivet is so sweet and I love all of the pictures. The one with the cute lace frame is so sweet.

  12. i love how the vine on the cloth echoes the vine on the sweet plate!

  13. The trivet is lovely!! It is so special!


  14. Oh Michele, I think this is the most beautiful trivit I have ever seen. The pink flower is so lovely, I can't decide what flower it is. Maybe the dogwood flower, anyway it is perfect and has such pretty leaves and vine. It looks perfect on your doile and applique embroidered tablecloth. Such a soft gentle look and a lovely post.

  15. Hi Michele,
    The flowers do look like dogwood. In any case, the trivet is really pretty. The doilie and tablecloth are lovely too. Pretty pinks for a Pink Saturday. Hope you're having a lovely weekend.


  16. Hi Michele,
    Lovely post. Yes, indeed it is a beautiful trivet, such sweet colors. Pink Saturday is so much fun. I certainly do enjoy doing embroidery,
    what I need is time. Happy Pink Saturday. Hugs...Lu

    Visiting for Pink Saturday- hope you can stop by..

  22. Love the trivet - and the table cloth and lace doily - beautiful. The greens definitely do have a play with and against each other. I love the delicate flowers and pink. Like you, I wish I wish I wish I could do all those things and more. Sometime . . . someday?
    I also saw your post w/your niece and the cupcakes - great post and idea. Cute niece and seems to be future blogger for sure.
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  23. Your Pink is pretty and stunning. Thank you for sharing.
