I went to tea last Saturday with the ladies from my tea club. We are in our fifth year since forming our club, which we named The Rose Petal Tea Society, and we address each other as “Rose Petal Mary, or Bev, or whatever our name is. Each month, the hostess chooses the color or theme for the tea. In June, our tea was at my home, and I decided on a Shabby Chic theme…I posted pictures of it in July. This month, our colors were black and white, in case you couldn’t tell. We went to Niles Canyon, about an hour’s drive from my house, to have tea at “Thyme For Tea”, and they have a very large gift shop as well as delicious food. They also carry their own house blend by the same name that is sooooo good! I took my camera and got some great pictures of many beautiful teacups for you to see. We were in teacup heaven!
This little green sweetie was my favorite, along with it’s matching teapot and cake stand. It is made by Ashdene, in Australia. I can’t remember the name, but the word “mint” was in it. And look at the pretty green one next to it…I do love green!
Aren’t these lovely? Puppy seems to be quite content sitting in the middle of these beauties!
Pretty yellow bumblebee teacups and teapot. Notice that the body resembles a beehive…so adorable! I especially like this set because I use honey in my tea…a LOT of honey! There were 3 of us at our table that use honey, so we told our server to keep her little dishes and bring a creamer full of honey…one for each of us!
This is a two tiered plate stand with the pretty birds singing to us! I thought it was just a garland sitting on top, but it’s actually attached and part of the stand. Too cute! The teacup sitting there is adorable as well.
Oh, be still my heart…aren’t these gorgeous?
As you enter the tea parlor, this beautiful china hutch greeted us with beautiful teacups!
Oh, how elegant these are! Another beautiful shade of green!
Being silly…this little hat is adorned with cherries…it goes so well with her outfit…I think she should buy it, don’t you?
No, she should buy it! Sue, it’s you!
I think I’m going back for this one!
Isn’t this gorgeous? What a beautiful shade of pink! Why don’t I buy these, too?
One of the girls bought this one…so pretty!
For anyone that loves pretty note cards, this is the place to come!
I do wish I had a tablet and pen to write down the names of all of these beautiful teacups, but my hands were full…camera, purse, shopping bags…you know how it is.
I think these are exquisite…the shape of the teacups and teapot, with their pretty scalloped edges, the butterflies and dragonflies…my granddaughter would love this set, but it was quite expensive, at least for a 10 yr. old!
Rose Petals caught shopping. We had one lone Rose Petal that forgot to wear her black and white, but she’s pretty in pink, anyway!
Having a little laugh! These two are sisters that I have known since the summer before starting high school.
Soooooo much to see!
Singing Happy Birthday to Margaret, only 70 yrs. young!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour and meeting a few of my Rose Petal friends. We have such a good time at tea …I recommend a tea club to all of you. If you don’t know of one, start your own, like we did.
Of course, this is just a small sample of all the teacups, teapots, linens, china and accessories that we saw. I will show you a few more in coming weeks, so if you enjoyed these, be sure to come back for another visit. I always have the tea kettle on, scones in the oven,pretty china teacups on the table…you are always welcome at my cottage!
Please, before you go, remember to pray for sweet Amy Dawn and all others that you know in blogland that need our prayers. Pray for our courageous troops that are far from home and missing their families…they need a blanket of prayer to cover them. Pray for our country, that our leaders will listen to wise counsel and make wise decisions for our nation. and that it will always remain one nation under God.
