Valentine Tea Time

Hello dear friends.  Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying the month of  February!  We have had a mild winter so far and have been lucky to miss the big snow storms coming across the USA.  Now that Valentine Day is near I wanted to share Valentines Tea with you.





I moved my tea cart from the dining area to the master bedroom in front of the glass doors overlooking the deck.








I gathered the few red Valentine items I have and made a romantic tea time.








The new to me pretty teacups are Royal Albert, Petit Point and Royal Victoria.










I recently received  my Mom's favorite old book  Snowbound by Emerson.  A perfect read for winter.












Clipper organic wild berry herbal tea in the unmarked teapot.





Homemade sugar cookies and purchased vanilla macarons for my sweethearts!











For all you gardeners you can just see my four square flower garden near the deck railing and the gazebo in the distance.  All waiting for spring, including me!








Lastly, here is Mr. Claus interested in all the pretties!




Thank you all so much for visiting!  Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's day!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  No Place Like Home,  Bernideens BTTCG Blog Party, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Share Your Cup Thursday.

"Take Ye A Cuppe O' Kindness For Auld Lang Syne"

Happy New year dear friends!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

I thought this would be a good time to share my "Take Ye A Cuppe O' Kindness For Auld Lang Syne" teacup and saucer with you!





The over sized teacup is made by The Rowland & Marselius Co.  Staffordshire, England.  The saucer has lots of crazing and a chip on the side, but still a good buy for $12.00!












Look what my grandson and girlfriend gave me for Christmas!  What a surprise!  My poor dishes!  But what a cuddler, just what I needed!





Some more of my china hutch decorated simply for Christmas.  I love the square plate by Johnson Bro's.  Named "Country Life".








On the top of the hutch a Royal Tudor Ware teapot named  "Olde England", and made by Barker Bro's. ltd, England.  My two china dogs, what are they looking at?





Some more Christmas decorations around the house.  A Johnson and Bro's. Friendly Village platter named "The Covered Bridge". on the mantle.






A darling Grace's teacup, a Christmas gift from last year.





I changed my tea cart during Christmas week, using my "A Cup Of Christmas Tea" teapot and teacups.









One more thing to share with you!  I found this needlepoint teapot cozy at a thrift store recently.  I am sure it has never been used!





Well now I am ready for tea!  Look at the sweet teacup!  It is stamped  Yuletide Series, N-C-336A, hand painted.









Harney & Son's Hot Cinnamon Spice tea and the last of the Christmas cookies!  Wish you could join me!








Thank you so much for stopping by!  May you have lots of blessings this New Year!

Red Transferware Christmas

Hello everyone!  Happy December to you and thank you for visiting!

Last summer I bought a used tea cart and today I had fun decorating it for the Christmas season.








The tea cart is all ready for holiday guests.  A coffee pot, hot chocolate pot, and two teapots to hold special holiday tea's.











Cranberry orange scones and bread pudding in the tureen for tea today.





Not much snow so far.  That's okay with me as long as it snows on Christmas Eve!














I bought the red toile Christmas quilt at Homegoods last year and this year I found the sweet set of four dessert plates there.  The plates are made by 222 Fifth and named Poinsettia Toile.  I love the quaint scene!











I am hoping you all are having a blessed Christmas season!  Merry Christmas early to you!

P.S.  Life is very busy for me helping to take care of my family, so I will be posting only as time permits in the New Year.  Wishing you a wonderful New year!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Bernideen's Tea Time, Cottage and Garden.
Sandi's No Place Like Home,   Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Share Your Cup Thursday.

A Late October Walk Into The Woods

Welcome and come with me for a walk in the woods.





Into the woods a scurrying  I heard.  Before I knew it a table appeared.








It was laden with teaware, a little sp00ky,  I fear!!





A part of a cookie was all that was left, but the tiny woodland creatures were enjoying that!











The tea was still warm, the teacup half full, as though someone left very swiftly I'm sure!














The wind started howling and lighting struck quick.  As fast as I could I fled from the woods!





Before I knew it I awoke from my nap.  Hoping I'd never dream again about that!!


Thank you for walking with me in the woods!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Friends Sharing Tea, and Share Your Cup Thursday.
