Tea for Two & Witches Brew

Oh, my! What's this out on our terrace? It looks as if Cleo and her black cat are having a spot of afternoon tea. They must have heard that Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch likes to celebrate on Thursdays and set a special table in her honor.

Cleo likes to sip a cup of her special witches brew tea in the late afternoons before her nightly activities. All you need is one glance at Cleo to see that she is a sweet, friendly witch. She came to live on the premises over 20 years ago. Cleo is known for her good deeds.

Mr. Barnaby, Cleo's "Cat Friday" is quite the gentleman, always attired in his silk vest and best bow tie. He is ever present by Cleo's side to help her with her every need.

All the black cats in the neighborhood

 usually like to "hang" about in the trees in envy of this pair.

A fresh steaming pot of 

witches brew tea is Cleo's favorite.

Mr. Barnbaby 

serves it up with style.

Cleo enjoys a bit of handwork during the "off season" and has spread today's tea table with one of her hand appliqued linens. This one depicts the haunted house that sits on the hill across the creek. Too spooky for Cleo and Barnaby though!

The table this afternoon is set with 

a sweet set of cups and 

saucers from ppd Porcelain.

Looks like Witchy Wanda and 

her green eyed cat are still hanging about. 

 They must be so envious!

Yes, you can see it in his eyes 

that he is "green with envy"!

Is that a scowl 

on his face?

Cleo and Mr. Barnaby don't seem to be a bit bothered though as they relax and enjoy the witches brew tea among the flutter of falling leaves.

I wonder what good deeds 

they have planned for tonight?

Whooooo do you think

 is looking down on these two now?

You guessed it, and this little hoot owl invites you to fly on over to Susan's @ Between Naps on the Porch where an abundance of fabulous tablescapes awaits your viewing pleasure.
