Christmas Cup Of Tea

Just a quick cup of tea to share on my favorite tea party blogs!

Christmas decorating and shopping on my mind, but taking a few minutes to reflect on this special season.

The sweet teacup is named Holly, from the  Royal Albert flower of the month series.

Please excuse the blurry photo's!

I've added a faux woods tree by the fireplace this year.  I placed it in my old doll sleigh for height along with some teddy bears and my cute little plaid stuffed moose.

A cozy setting to enjoy a cup of Downton Christmas tea and a couple of  sugar cookies!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Wishing you a wonderful Christmas season!

I will be joining the these special blog parties:  Friends Sharing Tea,  Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Teacup Tuesday.

Tea In The Garden For November

Welcome friends!  Lately we have been having beautiful autumn days.  It is hard to believe it is already November!  Usually we have had snow by now!  It is just too nice to stay indoors so thought I would share what I think will be the last outdoor tea for this year!

I put the table by my potting shed at home.  The nasturtiums are still blooming enjoying the lovely autumn weather we have had this week.

A plaid throw for the table, an old Alfred Meakin pitcher filled with bittersweet, and brown transferware for tea time.

The teapot is a Woods Burslem, England named "Hyde".  I recently found it at a antique mall in San  Diego while on vacation.  This beauty sat close by me on the airplane!  Doesn't it have a different kind of lid?  I have never seen one like it!

The teacup and saucer are named "King Tom", an American Tradition.  I love to use these in November.

The little creamer, a gift from a dear friend is Midwinter Ltd Burslem England "Rural England".  The sweet little angel is from my sister.

For a sweet today there is a delicious apple cake my daughter-in-law made and  in the teapot  Simpson & Vail Chocolate Caramel Black Tea.  Yum!

Well I could sit out here forever, but I still have some yard work I should do!  Although the forecast for the next two weeks is mild weather!

Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all have a lovely weekend!

I will be joining the following parties: Friends Sharing Tea and Tuesday Cuppa Tea.

My Cozy Tiny Tea Parlor

Hello and Welcome!  When at our little farm cottage this late summer and fall  I have been busy decorating my tiny storage shed into a cozy tiny tea parlor.

I papered the walls using my old Victoria magazines.  It has been so much fun   going through stacks of them and  picking out my favorite full page pictures!

My chippy wire form gal in the corner used to be in the flower garden and now I have lots of space for my teacups on the rafters!

In the other corner my cement lady brought in from the garden to keep me company!

I found the colorful chandy at a antique mall for only $40.00!  Only problem  I have no electricity in the parlor!

Now would you like to join me for tea?

The teapot is a Cauldon-Vale, Staffordshire England.  A different darling design on each side!

The teacups and plates are American Limoges, Chateau-K, Minuet Pink.  A friend made the lovely tablecloth for me!

Tea time through the mirror!

Twinings Chi in the teapot and apple strudel pie for a sweet!

A lot going on in the tea parlor!  But it will not be short of  conversation during tea time!  :)

Thank you for stopping by today and I am hoping you are enjoying your Autumn!

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

October Tea On The Cabin Porch

Hello tea friends!  It has been awhile since I enjoyed a long relaxing tea here at my log cottage, Yesterday  was such a lovely fall day,  so I set up tea time on my front porch. So glad you joined me!

I have lots of pink here with my fall asters and geraniums still blooming beautifully!

About a year ago I found this special Royal Albert Flowers Of The Month Series teapot set at a thrift store.  Half price for $35.00!

The teacups are also Royal Albert, September Aster and October Cosmos.

My sweet little lady vase filled with cosmos and asters from my garden.

Apple caramel scones and delicious Elmwood Inn tea,  A Kentucky blend black tea sent thoughtfully to me from Linda@Friendship Tea.

Thank you so much for stopping over for tea!  I hope you are having a beautiful autumn!
