Lilac Tea Time

It's lilac time at the farm cottage and a beautiful day for an outdoor tea!









Linens, good books, and a serenading fairy for my tea table.












I'm using a pretty pansy  teacup  marked Rosina, England.  A gift from a sweet friend.  The teapot is filled with Garden Andes, organic rosehip & hibiscus tea.  A gift from my dear sister.






Sunny warm weather, comfy chair, good books, and delicious tea!  A blessing to me!












Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying a bit of tea time today!

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

Nancy, I always enjoy your outdoor teas. The lilacs are so vivid and I can just imagine their fragrance. What lovely gifts from your friend and your sister.

Nancy, your setting is so very pretty there by your lilac bushes! I love the pillow with the bunny on it; so sweet! Your books look like some fun reading and the fairy is so cute. What a pretty teapot! Are those rhinestones I see on it? The teacup is lovely too. Little blessings all wrapped up in a lilac tea. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea today. Have a beautiful day, dear friend.

Hugs,
Sandi

I love tea outside in the garden and it's already too hot here to be able to do that. I love your lilacs (they don't grow down here and I miss them). Pretty linens and I love the bunny pillow. Beautiful pansy teacup and the teapot is gorgeous. Happy Tea Day!

A lovely tea by the lilacs. I like your teacup, bunny pillow and of course the lavender garden hat.

Your lilacs are stunning! Your tea looks so pretty too, with all the lavender color. Pretty teacup too! Hope you are doing well, Nancy.
Hugs, Beth

What a lovely tea. I am a bit jealous of all your lilacs as we no longer have any. I notice we both used out pansy tea cup for tea today. It is one of my favorites.

I meant to say in my comment that I also have Alice's Tea Cup and like the recipes.

Oh such a charming tea party. I love the pansy teacup too. I can almost smell the lilacs.

You made me laugh as I sell both of these books at my store. I love tea books. I would love a rainy day (seldom in Colorado) to waste away reading tea books! What a lovely setting here and that little wooden cart is perfect. Lovely tea time here as I always love seeing what you create! So glad you linked!

Oh what a lovely, delightful tea, dear Nancy :) Your colors look so pretty together!

Thank you for always sharing such prettiness with us. Enjoy your week! Hugs and blessings.

Hi Nancy,
I look so forward to visiting your pretty blogspot each week. I love the lilacs with the white wicker and that wee cart is gorgeous! Beautiful teacup and pitcher of lilacs. Perfectly matched books too! So elegant! Have a Happy Week! Karen

So love your elegant tea table and you know fairies are my favourite. Lovely lilacs and the smell must be throughout? I believe I have this same pansy tea cup, I'll have to go look for it now that I've said this. Sweet tea pot everything looks so inviting, lovely.
