Welcome to tea this week! We had some beautiful very warm days over the holiday weekend and it is just what my flower gardens needed! It seems like all of a sudden my gardens are full of color.
For this week I thought I would have tea by my peonies. I always look forward to peony time for their sweet smell and beauty. We had lots of rain lately so the blooms are not as perky as a few days ago.
I'm using mismatched dishes for tea time today, all thrift store finds.
I love the teacup with the sweet flowers in the center. Her last name is Coalport Maybe I'll call her Sweetness! The saucer goes well with quite a few of my lone teacups. The mark says Orleans, Bavaria.
The sugar bowl with the dainty flowers is unmarked and found without it's mate, the creamer.
The little lady is so precious to me. My Mom gave her to me years ago. She put her Mother's butterfly brooch on top of the basket the lady is holding.
My Brother and Sister-in-law gave us the tall light pink peony for a house warming gift over twenty years ago and the darker peonies were from a friends garden that many years ago. What a sweet remembrance of the loved ones who gave them to me.
Thank you so much for visiting and seeing what is blooming in my garden! I will be joining the following lovely parties this week: Tea Time Tuesday, A Return To Loveliness, Tea In The Garden, Teacup Tuesday, Tabletop Tuesday, Cottage Garden Party, Share Your Cup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, Show and Tell Friday, and Pink Saturday.
