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.

Brown Transferware For Fall

Hello and welcome!  Fall weather is here to stay for a while and it sure has been cool lately!  Today I am staying inside and sharing with you my collection of brown transferware.   I started collecting transferware about the time I started this blog, about four years ago!  I know so many of you collect transferware and I love seeing what you have!  We live in a log cottage and the brown colors of the transferware add a nice touch of country warmth.

Most of my brown transferware is here in my little Welch cupboard.

The top shelf holds most of my Windsor Ware by Johnson Bros.  The china dogs were given to my dear son when he was very young, by his grandmother.

The middle shelf holds more of the Windsor Ware along with more transferware.

This teapot is named England's Heritage, made by H. Aynsley & Co.

And this teapot is named Royal Mail, by Myott.

The dishes on the buffet shelf are mostly my collection of  Olde English Countryside, by Johnson Bros.

I've had lots of fun looking for brown transferware!

Now, please choose a teacup and I'll put the kettle on!

Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Tea In The Garden, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Share Your Cup Thursday..

Tea In The Potting Shed

Hello friends, this week for tea time we are having tea in my potting shed. Our fall weather has been beautiful, but with lots of wind!  The potting shed is close to my log cottage so it is easy to bring a tray out and enjoy the extra warmth and sunshine in the glass sided shed.

Before tea I had to clear off the little table filled with potting shed essentials and Chinese lanterns I recently picked from my garden.

 A crochet tablecloth and newly purchased mums,  Now we are ready for the tea tray!

I'm using this sweet teacup and saucer by Johnson Brothers named Bouquet.

The plate is a good match made by Myott, named swing time.

My sturdy country teapot is not marked.

Yummy oatmeal cookies and tea in a cozy earthly place!  An ideal time to reflect on this years garden and dream of next year's flower garden!

Thank you for stopping by and wishing you have a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Tea In The Garden, and Teacup Tuesday.

Cottage Flower Garden Tea

Hello everyone, we were at the farm cottage last week and enjoyed  tea by the cottage flower garden.

I used my cottage scene tea set I've gathered piece by piece over the years.  I love the pretty thatched roof homes and the sweet flower gardens!  Perfect to use on a warm summer day!

The teapot is made by Arthur Wood & Son,  England.

The teacup trio is Royal Vale, made in England.

I hope you don't mind dear kitty cat joining us for tea?

Coconut cream pie and Tea Forte coconut chai latte.  Yummy!

The last days of summer!  I'm sorry to see them go!

Thank you for stopping by!  Wishing you a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Tea in the Garden,   Teacup Tuesday, and Tuesday Cuppa Tea.
