Happy Tea Things Tuesday, inspired and created by our beautiful Kim at www.shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com ! You just click on the darling tea cabinet to the right to visit Kim and so many more tea lovers!
I’m so glad you have to come to visit me at my tea cottage. The tea kettle is full, and I’ve already poured a cup just for you, plus added two flavors of freshly baked scones. I hope you like my homemade strawberry jam, made by a friend’s loving hands. Now, just sit down and sip as we talk about the important things in life…children, grandchildren, home, God, the little things in life that make us complete and whole.
Let me tell you about the teapot and teacup we’ll be using today. The teapot is a favorite of mine, and one of my first, purchased at T.J. Maxx several years ago. Its a Sadler teapot, made in England, and just the right size for about 4 to 5 cups of tea.
The teacups are made by Hammersley, also in England, and the pattern is Morgan’s Rose. The first time I saw one of these teacups, I fell in love with it…I think you will too!
Although the teapot and teacups aren’t a perfect match, they match perfectly, don’t you think?
My beautiful pink plates are vintage hobnail, another favorite of mine. I have 18 of them, and use them often. I’m not sure of the manufacturer…if you have an idea, please let me know.
These roses were given to me by my wonderful husband last Friday…we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary. I’ll be sharing photos on Saturday, if you’d like to come back!
Isn’t the color outstanding?
This is a vintage sugar bowl…I also have the creamer and the underplate….I’ll show it another time.
I do hope you enjoyed tea today…I love having company for tea…I could do it every day of the week…well, maybe at least 3 times a week…I do need a couple of days to bake and clean!
I hate to see you leave so soon, but I really do want you to hurry on over to Kim’s…you don’t want to miss her beautiful tea things, and then you can click away and visit all the participants…I know they will have delightful tea goodies to feast your eyes on!
God bless you all…remember to pray for our wonderful military, their families, especially those at Fort Hood…pray for our blogging friends that are in need. We have the Christmas season coming upon us quickly, which is always a time of good will among men and women…let’s not wait til next month…every day is the day to give, share, pray, and spread joy everywhere you go.
