Happy Birthday Tea!

A couple of years ago my BFF was in town during her birthday.  So what did we do?  Why, we went to tea, of course!



Thank you for joining my BFF and me for a virtual tea today.  Wishing Lin a wonderful birthday!

Winter Blues

Winter time also brings on the cool shades of blue. So I've set a cool blue kitchen table and hope you will join me for something warm and delicious.





Tea Service is Russian China
Blue dishes are Churchill Blue Willow, Made in Staffordshire England
Assorted Tea Cups
Vintage Linen

Oh I hear the timer going off for the Blueberry Muffins. I've got the water hot, ready to pour. Please join me and these other lovely ladies. We'd love for you to join us.


Due to a death in the family, I've not had the opportunity to write a new blog post, so this is a rerun from a few years ago.  Thank you for your understanding.

Tea Things

While on a shopping spree, I found this Staffordshire teapot at Home Goods a couple of years ago. 

It was the prettiest teapot that I had found in a long time. The large pink roses are so delicate. The Royal Albert cream and sugar set was purchased at an Antique mall while I was visiting my daughter when she worked in Chicago. And the mug was a gift from a dear friend. It is called "Rose of England".   I painted the plate that is standing behind the tea set.  I thought these pieces looked so pretty together.  Perfect for a spot of tea on a cold day.
