May Tea Time

Welcome to my May tea in the garden!  We returned from our trip to beautiful Kentucky and found our yard in bloom with Daffodils.  What a  welcome home after a long winter!

During our trip we stopped at several antique malls and I found a few treasures!  The first was a teacup with bluebirds, and then later the tablecloth embroidered with bluebirds on the corners, and lastly a tea towel stamped with a pretty bluebird.  I never planned the bluebird theme, funny how things happen like that!

The sweet teacup is a Coalport, made in England.  The cup and saucer were taped together and I  was pleasantly surprise to find out after I bought it for only $5.00 that it was a Coalport!

I also found this pretty table runner on my trip.

I have a white farmer sink in my kitchen and this towel looks so pretty hanging over it.

A couple cups of Cambridge and Thames green tea and than I need to tidy my flower beds!

Thank you so much for visiting!  Wishing you a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties:  Bernideen's Tea In The Garden, No Place Like Home, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, and A Garden Party.

Dear Nancy:
It's like a dream of spring come true! How wonderful to see the garden flooded with yellow daffodils! I know you will enjoy it all! The daffodils bloomed in Missouri in April so they are gone - I shall enjoy yours now!!!

What a beautiful sight, Nancy, of your yard filled with daffodils and then your pretty outdoor tea! I love your newfound treasure of a teacup, and the darling towel and table runner, too. It looks perfect with your birdie teapot. Enjoy your time in the garden, sweet friend!

Such a lovely blue and white cup that goes so well with your bird towel Coalport is quality and a great find for the price you paid. You have a charming tea display!

Your garden is wonderful and your linens are swoon worthy.

I do love Daffodils, and ours are long gone! Beautiful! I just love your teacup...especially as it's blue and white. And the tablecloth is wonderful. The perfect spring tea I think! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Oh, Nancy, how beautiful! I love drifts of daffodils and yours are simply dreamy! Your Coalport teacup is gorgeous and I love your birdie teapot too. You really scored with the linens. The table runner is exquisite. Actually, they all are lovely. What a delightful spot to sip on some tea. Wish I could join you, Nancy. Thank you for sharing with us and have a beautiful day, dear friend.

I LOVE the bluebirds on sweet! And the daffodils are outstanding! I wish we could grow them here in Florida, but that just doesn't happen here. Thank you for sharing yours with us! This was delightful. Made me smile today!!
