Tiered stand ~

With the arrival of Spring I thought it was time to make a few decorative changes in the kitchen.
 I decided to start by putting up one of my tiered stands. This stand is huge, if I would have known how large it really was I probable wouldn't have purchased it. The good news it very easily comes apart for storage...each tier fitting within the other.

I took it out, screwed it together and then...hmmm, what to put in it. I have pinned so many ideas for tiered stands that I should be an expert, but like with so many other things, I'm not. 

Then I remembered an adorable vintage tea set, a gift one Christmas from my brother, currently languishing in a closet; time to get it out and enjoy it.

I would put together a tea station. Why not, I love tea and brew a pot every morning, it would be nice to have everything in one central place.

It was fun to gather it all: different teas, napkins, accessories and two charming books on tea. The books given to me by very nice people...thank you again Ralph and Barbara, and you too Jerry. I dressed it up a with some lace and potted herbs.

Now I can pick a selection of tea, brew a pot, and read about it all at the same time! And, it looks rather nice.

I love an easy solution to a problem and if you really get stymied, sitting down with a cup of tea always helps.

Thank you for visiting.


  1. I love that you have so many options with this really looks like it is waiting for your special touch!

  2. I'm happy to see that you finally got to use your gorgeous stand!!! I love what you did with it. I think I need one!

  3. You've styled the stand very prettily.
    I have always found that knotty problems unravel when tea is involved.

  4. Love your vignette, inspiring.



  5. A tiered stand themed with tea makes for a lovely and useful display.

  6. I love this idea for your tiered stand. Such a pretty display. It feels like spring will never come to MI. I keep looking at your lush green plantings and blooms with envy.

  7. I pinned your tiered baskets for future use. thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Your tiered stand is perfect for teatime! I like what you did - it's a great idea. I wish I had more counter space in my little kitchen so I could do something similar. All because I'd love a reason to buy another tiered stand!

  9. What a touch in your kitchen. You just know what to set up and how to take pictures so natural.
