September Tea

Welcome tea friends to Tea Time this week!

September certainly brought in fall weather with lots of rain, but we continue to have beautiful mild weather perfect for a autumn tea in the garden.

I can always count on my perennial sunflowers (Heliopsis) to put on a good September show.  If you pick them while they are still fresh they dry so nicely.

I thought my yellow rose unmarked dishes would make a pretty table with the fall flowers.

Would you like a piece of cake?  Ever since I first saw these little decorated cakes I wanted one for me!  When I saw this yellow frosted cake I knew it would be perfect to share with you for this autumn tea!


My TJ Maxx teapot is filled with Bigelow Cozy Chamomile tea, waiting for you!

Thank you so much for stopping by and including me in your tea time!

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

Tea In The Hen House Court Yard

Welcome to tea time and happy September to you!  We are having tea this week in my hen house courtyard.  The flowers are still blooming and fresh looking with all the rain and cool weather we had.  I picked a lovely warm day for tea!


I have a new tea set to share with you.  Red transferware!  I found the set for only $16.00!  They are marked "The Constable series Bicentennial 1776-1976, J. Broadhurst ironstone, Staffordshire, England".

The wild raspberries are from the edge of my yard near the woods.  I placed them in Mason's Vista bowls  from my collection of red transferware.  I've used real cream in the creamer for a special treat on the berries.

The teapot is filled with Darvilles of Windsor English breakfast tea.
Here's a peek into my hen house retreat.
Thank you for joining me for tea time!  May you have a wonderful week!
I will be joining the following parties:  Tea Time Tuesday, Tea In The Garden, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, A Return to Loveliness, and Share Your Cup Thursday.
