It's Tea Time!







Hello, tea friends! It's Tuesday and time set out our tea things and share a cuppa with other tea aficionados. In one corner of my dining room, a table for two is always set for tea. So please drop by any time and let me pour you a cup of serenity. I've always got ingredients in the pantry for some scones too.

Today, I've set out a panoply of vintage tea things: vintage tablecloth, vintage napkins, vintage china, vintage silverware, vintage teapot and teacups.




Nothing matches, not even the silverware. It's a potpourri of florals, just like a spring bouquet.


We can thumb through my Tea Time book and browse over recipes.

Today's teacup in the spotlight is a thrift shop find. It's very translucent. The design is simple on the outside, but has a pretty rose and leaves on the inside.


As always, you're always welcome to stop by the Lace and Ivy Cottage for a spot of tea.

Before if bid you adieu, I leave you with this tea quote:

A woman is like a tea bag - you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.

~Eleanor Roosevelt



Till next time,

Your table is set so beautifully. The pretty pink napkins are perfect. And I love your three tiered dessert holder. I have been looking for one of those for a while now.
Your tea cup is gorgeous. I clicked on the photo to see the maker. Does it say Lenox on it? If it does, it must be porcelain, and that is why it is so translucent.
Thank you so much for joining us today for Tea Cup Tuesday!
I have enjoyed visiting you,
Hugs,
Terri

Hello Lorna!I love your parties. You always have a splendid selection of confections.

I'm saving your blueberry french toast recipe, to serve my guest coming for the holiday weekend. Fortunately I froze the sweetest blueberries from last summers trip to farmers market.
It's sure to be a "Sweet Surprise."
You are such a gracious hostess.
I enjoy your eloquent way with words too.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

P.S. If you can imagine...we have a Home Goods and I've never been. It looks like I'll be in for a treat. I'll be sure to let you know what I find. Thank you for suggesting I take a look.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
