Tea In The Four Square Flower Garden

Hello dear friends, what glorious weather we have been having!  Nice and warm, a perfect day for tea in my four square garden!


 


Do you remember my butterfly bench I got last year in honor of my precious daughter?  I set a little table in front of it for tea today.


   


While setting the table I thought maybe little "Alice" would like to join us for tea.  I recently found her for $3;00!  She is from Dept. 56, and  named "Tea for Two".  Isn't she cute  trying to pour tea?


 


  


I haven't used any blue's  for tea in awhile and wanted to share the teapot and table cover I recently found at a thrift store.


  


The teapot is a brilliant blue marked with a lion insigna.











The blue transferware teacup is unmarked, but the saucer  is a Ridgeway, named  "Coaching Days". made in Staffordshire, England.














Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!











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

What a beautiful tea in the garden, Nancy! Your butterfly bench is special. It looks great in your foursquare garden (sometime you'll have to tell us why you named your garden "foursquare.") I adore your transferware cup and saucer and the teapot is GORGEOUS! Your garden looks so pretty too. Beautiful spot for tea time!

Oh Nancy, what a sweet tea in honor of your dear daughter. The Alice figurine is just precious. You always find the best buys at the thrift stores that you visit. I love the teapot, the coaching scene teacup, and the pretty vintage tablecloth. It's always magical to visit your tea time.

Totally delightful! I enjoyed tea in the garden with you and "Alice" so much. The butterfly bench is spectacular...what a fitting tribute to your wonderful daughter. I am sure her spirit was present with you at your tea time. I am so happy to have shared these few moments with you.
Thank you dear friend.

Hi Nancy,
Oh I love your blue and white china today! So funny because I have posted blue and white for two weeks now. Your tablecloth is so pretty and that butterfly bench must be one of a kind. It's amazing! Happy Tea Day Sweet Friend! I love all of your flowers in your garden. Your transferware from last week looks spectacular too! Love it all! Karen

That garden gets an A++++++ as it is so beautiful. Of course I especially noticed the round table linen with the needlework all vintage and pretty! I love that butterfly bench too. This is a lovely posting!

Ok, the bench is so cute, but your yard is amazing. All that color and green is stunning. We are in a drought, hard to have a garden anymore. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha
