Tea With Violet

Actually tea with my violet dishes, but Queen Gilliflower has made her home in my garden and  I thought we would have tea with her also!

My violet teapot was the first teapot I purchased new way back in the 80's.  The two matching teacups are marked Japan and the little beauty of a teacup is a Queen's Rosina named Violets.

It is early morning here with a nice cool breeze.  Perfect for a cup of  Clipper Wild Berry Herbal Tea near the flowers.  I am so glad you could join me!

Thank you so much for visiting!  Have a lovely week!

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

Lilac Time

It is lilac time here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and while we were at the farm cottage I set up a little tea in front of our bank of purple lilacs to share with you.

My dear daughter-in-law gave me the cute tea cart recently and I found the tea set at a thrift store a while ago.

The tea set is marked Japan.  I need to scale down on my tea pretties and told myself to only buy made in England china,  but I couldn't resist the set for only $5.99!

I love the tiny raised flowers on the teapot, along with the pretty birds.  I thought they might be blue birds, but my hubby says they are swallows!  What do you think?

Lots of lilacs again this year!  Plenty to give away and keep in the cottage for their beauty and fragrance.

There are three different designs on the teacups. I love the patterns!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Hoping you have a wonderful month of June!

I will be joining Bernideen for her 100th  Tea In The Garden Party.  Congratulations Bernideen!  I always enjoy her beautiful outdoor tea settings!

I also will be joining these lovely parties:  No Place Like Home, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Teacup Tuesday.
