Today is Wednesday and I'm joining Sue at It's a Very Cherry World for her REDnesday party. I have been taking a bit of a break from flaunting my red but I'm back today to share with you a very cute Valentine surprise my sweet hubby gifted me with over the weekend.

I have been collecting tea-for-one sets because I find many folks have been wanting their own flavour of tea. This adorable little set is adorned with beautiful red cardinals and I just love it! Thank you Hubby!We don't get Cardinals here on the Island but they sure are beautiful red birds! Those of you who do have them are very fortunate. Isn't this guy a handsome fellow?I am also going to share my red heart-shaped candy dish filled with Hershey's kisses. I apologize to those of you who have already seen it. But since it is red, it makes the REDnesday post today too.

Thank you for stopping by today. Please take a few moments to visit Sue and her party of reds. Just click the link

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Hi Sandi! Oh, your little teaset for one is so sweet! Love the pinecones and needles and the red birds! We get a cardinal every now and then. Now I'd love to take just two kisses from that pretty red heart bowl.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. That tea set is so sweet, my cousin would kill for that! She loves cardinals...speaking of that, what an incredible photo of a real one! Really pretty!

  3. Love your new tiny teapot!Isn't it wonderful to have such a thoughtful husband?[No, he didn't pay me to say that(;]

  4. Very beautiful tea pot and I love cardinals, we used to seem often when we lived in NC and I miss them so much.

  5. Sweet pictures! Hope your Valentine's Day was as sweet as those kisses!

  6. Oh! Your tea for one set is just lovely! I love the cardinals!

  7. Thanks for sharing your sweet teapot and the cardinal picture. My mom adores cardinals, and I adore her - so thank you!

  8. Sandi, that is one handsome tea set! Usually I don't like the style of the "onesies", but yours is so nice! I took a chocolate to go with my morning coffee - glad you saved some for today!

  9. What a pretty tea set, Sandi!.. And a very sweet husband for giving it to you! We do get cardinals here, and they are a beautiful sight against their white snowy surroundings! I did not participate this week, but still wish you a very Happy Rednesday! ~tina

  10. Hi Sandi,
    I absolutely adore your Cardinal teapot. Yikes! I'm a died-in-the-wool it from my mom ;) We don't get Cardinals here in Southern California :( My mom was from the Midwest and they are abundant there.

  11. Very nice tea-for-one set! And the bowl is so beautiful (I'll take a candy, if you don't mind!)! Happy rednesday!

  12. I want to find one of those frilly red bowls, but I can't remember where I saw them! They're probably clearanced and all sold out by now anyway.
    I LOVE that tea set so much! Anything with cardinals and pinecones on it is a winner with me. So lovely!
    Happy REDnesday!
