Pink Morning Tea

Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend!  We had our first warm weekend for spring!  We stayed overnight at the farm  and thought I'd share some more pink to brighten our day!

It's a gray morning and cold. A good time to linger over  a pot of Northwest Breakfast Tea by Market Spice.  I am using mismatched china I've collected over the years.

I hope you are enjoying my tea time today.  Praying you have a wonderful day and do come back soon!

I'll be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, A Return to Loveliness, Share Your Cup Thursday, Home Sweet Home, Simple and Sweet Fridays, and Show and Tell Friday.

Pink Loveliness

Hello Everyone,  I'm in the mood for some pink pretties and hope you are too!.  Here's some of my pinks I have at my tiny farm cottage.  I'll start in the kitchen as this is the way most people enter the cottage unless I'm having a tea party.  The first thing you see directly across from the door  is my wall cupboard filled with some of my treasures.  I'm collecting  teapots of the moss rose design.  I hope to have  one for each place setting someday.

Here is my china cabinet I painted white.  It started out from two different pieces I found at a thrift shop.  It's  filled with all kinds of gifted and thrift store finds and my Mom's rose dishes.  See the trellis on the right?  I love the lady and the quote, a gift from my sister.

I made the chandelier out of a old light fixture and teacups.

Now let's go into the living room.  On the mantel is my sweet angel, a mirrored birdhouse my Daughter-in-law gave me, and  a cloche with teacups.

Some pinks in my corner cabinet.

In the bookcase are some of my favorite books and garden fairies.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my pink lovelies and thank you so much for visiting.  Next time lets have Tea!  Wishing you a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Make it Pretty Monday, A Return to Loveliness, Home, Share Your Cup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, Show and Tell Friday, and Pink Saturday.

Waiting For Spring

Hello everyone.  We are back home from our winter stay in Florida.  It is so wonderful to settle in my comfy home and being with family and friends again.

Spring is giving us a difficult time arriving.  We still have lots of snow and cold days!  My garden angel does not look happy in her spring bonnet!

This morning I thought I'd cozy up with a cup of Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. with my new teacup I found in Florida at a thrift store.

The teacup must have been someones souvenir of Wales.  I fell in love with the couple having their tea.  The weather must have been cold there too!  They are all bundled up, but are bracing the outdoors!  Looks like spring in Wales with the daffodils blooming!  The teacup is a Royal Grafton, made in England.

I'm trying to decide what sweet to bake this morning.  I think I'll make the Fairy cookies and have a second cup of tea with them!

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

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Teatime Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Share Your Cup Thursday,  and Show and Tell Friday
