A Thrifted Tea…


My favorite way to drink iced tea is with cranberry juice added.

Cranberry Iced Tea

2 parts freshly brewed tea

1 part unsweetened cranberry juice

sweeten to your taste

serve iced


I simply add to my glass of freshly brewed tea about one-third of unsweetened real cranberry juice….that is two-thirds tea and one –third cranberry juice.


I use these glass coasters all of the time…love them…


I love serving Cranberry Tea from my Silver pitcher…


The Cranberry Tea sparkles in the light…


No glass of iced tea shall go without “LEMON” and a package of the pink stuff…


Pretty iced tea spoons and napkins make it special…I wrapped ivy from my porch and a couple of blooms from the yard around the napkins and spoons…


The summer flowers are a little past their prime now…but still pretty…


My flowers are in a Swan bowl that belonged to my Mom…It is a Hall and I remember her redeeming her stamps from the grocery store to get it…


A few fresh peaches dressed with more Black-eyed Susan’s and ivy make a summertime snack look so fresh…


A bowl of fresh cool cherries are my favorite snack…the little beads of moisture and the fresh ivy make them look so pretty in the little milkglass bowl…


Everything except my Mom’s bowl is thrifted from Goodwill…
