With Halloween less than two weeks away,

Rod and Rowena came out of the closet to enjoy

some fresh air on the porch and teatime!

Rowena has always been a tea enthusiast. She says

 there’s nothing like a cup of tea to cure what ails you!

She cackled with glee when she found this adorable Jack o’ lantern teapot

while shopping at HomeGoods.

She was happy to have an excuse to polish up the family silver for teatime!

She’s partial to Chai Tea and likes it sweetened

 with an orange rock candy swizzle stick!

Rod is not a tea drinker so Rowena made him a cup of

Dead Ringer Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa

to warm his bones.

Bona Lisa  joined Rod and Rowena on the porch for teatime. . .

She’s a happy pup who loves her bones and treats,

but is cold-natured. Rowena bought her a sweater to keep her warm

but she’s so bony, it’s hard to find one that fits. 🦴💀🐾

Rod says Halloween is all about the treats!

He has quite the sweet tooth and they both love to eat candy corn by the handful.

Halloween comes but once a year, so Rowena made sure there were plenty of treats.

She’s a little worried about Rod, as he can’t seem to keep any weight on. . .

She found Sugar Skull Cookies and Kit Kat

Breaking Bones White Creme Candy Bars

while shopping at Target, another favorite haunt. . .

They have the cracking of crispy wafers and the frightful flavor of bone-white creme!

Rod was craving a caramel apple so he asked Rowena

if she would pick him up one when she was shopping.

Rowena loves Rod’s beautiful smile, so she was a little concerned

about him eating a caramel apple as it’s been about 100 years

since his last visit to the dentist . . .

Rowena decided she needed something savory to go with her tea

so she made some pimento cheese sandwiches.

She used the same cookie cutter she used for her Spooky Spinach Tortilla Chips.

I hope Rod and Rowena tickled your funny bone today. . .

    Mary, You have tickled my funny bone today! You have served some delightful treats to the Skeleton crew for “Tea on Tuesday”. Rod, Rowena, and Bona Lisa are so cleverly staged and I eagerly awaited each photo.This is an amazing and creative Halloween tea. So fun!
    You find the cutest dishes and linens!

    What a fun post, Mary! I always enjoy visiting virtually with Rowena and Rod. Have a frighteningly harrowed Halloween.

    Rod and Rowena definitely tickled my funny bone this morning. Rowena looks quite fetching in her colorful scarf and spider adorned hat. She made an excellent choice at HG with her new Jack o’ lantern teapot. It must be nice to be able to eat all the treats and never have to worry about weight gain. I think Rod is enjoying his porch time and a dose of Vitamin D. The couple look rather pale. Rowena found the cutest treats at Target, wish I had a Target and HG close by. You have put the fun in teatime!

    Mary it is always a special treat to join you for Tea On Tuesdays 🧡🎃

    Mary, I loved when you feature Rowena, Rod and the puppy!!! I am still on a learning curve on how to dress my Hetty, not so easy, lol! Plus, thank you, thank you, thank you for the beautiful table cloth with the matching napkin rings!!!!
    It’s so beautiful, I love it!!! My husband didn’t notice I had purchased the 5′ skeleton and dressed her, that was so easy, I may need to buy another one!!! Love, love, love, every detail with today’s ‘tea-on-the porch!
    Hugs, Debbie

    Mary, Rod, Rowena and Bona Lis’a tea adventures is bone cracking fun. Definitely tickled my funny bone. I love their outfits and those treats have me craving some sweets. What a fun find in the jack-o-lantern teapot. Love the cute little black and white coffee cups. As I have always said, you are a child at heart with a vivid imagination.

    Rod, Rowen and Bona Lisa definitely touched my funny bone today, quite humerus! 😉 some of their friends live in our neighborhood – Eddie & Edith. Eddie was too busy painting Edith’s portrait to stop for tea (I’ll have to send you a picture), but I’d gladly take their spot to join R&R. thise treats are amazing! Love the teapot and recent food finds. R&R are livin’ the good life after all these years…

    This is too much, Mary ! I love the skeleton crew and their dog!!! There’s even a dog…I can’t even….and who knew that there are Kit Kat Breaking Bones?!?!? I like the skull finger sandwiches, too. Such a cute and spooky idea for your front porch. :D

  21. October 18, 2022 at 2:27 pm

    This is just fabulous and I would much rather a FUN tea than being all serious:):) Your skeleton crew are ALL dressed perfectly. Thanks for the smiles today.

  22. October 18, 2022 at 2:28 pm

    I always enjoy my visits with Rowena and Rod and Bona Lisa. I’ll have a cup of Chai with Rowena and of course, I’d love some treats. The skull pimento cheese sandwiches look so tasty, and then I’ll go for the sweets. Thanks for the fun tea party, Mary, with your skeleton crew.
