Tea For One

Hello tea friends, hoping you all had a blessed Easter!  For tea time this week I'm sharing a little tea for one.  Last Wednesday and Thursday we had another snowstorm !  Nine more inches of snow!  Not very spring like, so I thought I'd use my brown transferware tea set and my little ceramic chocolate bunny for company.


I decorated a tray with pretty doilies and enjoyed tea in front of my dining room windows.

The tea set is called Olde English Countryside by Johnson Bro's.  I love the English scene with the thatched cottages.

I had the teapot sugar cookies in the freezer, waiting for tea time!

The little creamer is from a set of two, called Rural England, Midwinter Ltd., a gift from by friend Brenda.

Hopefully we can get out to the farm cottage soon.  My spring colorful bunnies are waiting patiently to be included in tea time!  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, A Return to Loveliness, Tuesday Cuppa  Tea, Teacup Tuesday, and Share Your Cup Thursday.

Special Tea Time

Hello tea friends,  last Friday I had the privilege of giving a tea for my grandson Justin and his girlfriend Adriana.  She enjoys tea's, having lots of tea time with her Grandma.  She looked so darling, all dressed up with a pretty dress and pearls!

We were getting another snowstorm, but it was warm and cozy inside.

I used my Grandmother's tea set from Occupied Japan and my Mother-in-law's silver, which I inherited.

 For favors, Dove Easter bunny.

My beautiful bouquet from Adriana!  The lovely vase is hand painted, a gift from my friend Garnet..

Sandwiches and sweets on the tea tray.

I enjoyed the day so much and felt so blessed to spend the time with such a sweet couple.

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

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Friends Sharing Tea,  Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and A Return to Loveliness.
