Roses are Red my love........

My FIL gave me these beautiful red roses that he grows in his back yard. I just could not resist enjoying these roses with some of my own :-)



Royal Patrician teacup - Staffordshire (England)

Niagara Parks Bone China teacup (England)

I love to sit out on our patio and listen to the water flowing over the fountain.


Sugar and Creamer - Forget Me Not Roses - Royal Albert (England)


I found the Teapot at Home Goods several years ago. David Michael China for Staffordshire (Made in England)


Thank you for joining me for a spot of tea.

Enjoy your day.

Blessed these generous gifts that allow to create such beauty somehow immortalizing those sweet moments brough by generous hearts.

All pictures are delightsome. Congratulations!

What a truly lovely post.

I think using our prettiest china for spoiling ourselves when having tea is half the pleasure - mugs are utilitarian but not lovely - your tea respite is quite the scene.

And your sweet FIL's roses - how beautiful and really brings something extra special to your table!

What a glorious tablescape--all the beautiful roses, both real and on china--so pretty! And the water fountain in the background to provide just the right ambience--I would not want to leave that table!

What a beautiful tea! Your roses are gorgeous and your tea table so lovely. I love all of your china. We are getting a TJ Max soon where I live and cannot wait to see the teapots and teacups for sale! I can just imagine sitting with you and listening to the gentle water fountain. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.
