Tea time again, pouring rain today, so I enjoyed my tea on the deck under a roof. The rain is so needed, couldn't have came at a better time. So thank you for joining me, hope you enjoy our tea...
I was trying to decide on which teapot to use, have a lot of red transferware, but sold all the cups and saucers, because they were so marked. So I used the yellow with the gold to match or go with the cups n' saucers.
this is a tole tray, was actually tv trays and I took it apart. Works great
another new Royal Albert cup n saucer, gold and white, very dainty
it has a pretty design in the cup and saucer
love this tea, especially the smell
this other cup n saucer is one my grandmother gave me before I was married, 42 years ago.
no markings on it.
one of my new books-High Tea
used this pretty bowl for my grapes
another rose from my garden, notice I don't show the leaves,
any hints on what to do to get rid of the slugs??
thank you for joining me for tea today, the tea seemed a little sluggish, not enough roses I think.
Welcome to my tea today. I was going to use my Serena pieces for tea, but then got thinking Sandi is looking for the teacup and saucer, so won't use it, didn't want to rub it in. I was actually going to send her a cup n ' saucer. Don't need to now, but my intentions are good.
Sandi wonders how many cups n saucers we have. I must count too. An auctioneer friend was telling hubby that his wife was checking out a website of a lady in London Ontario who has over a thousand cups n' saucers. When I get off here going to look for them.
I have mentioned that at auctions tea cups don't sell anymore. If they are non-named brands we tray them and they go for two to six dollars. Better names-Aynsley/Royal Abert/Wedgewood/Copeland etc. they bring a little bit of money, even Shelley doesnt bring the high money anymore. Really sad, I do hope it turns around.
Enough of the small talk, lets have a cuppa
another new teapot, not as nice as last weeks, but still pretty. This I could use everyday and not worry about it breaking. Roses, never enough roses.
A Sadler, see the sticker is still half on the bottom
Finally my roses are back again, although not as many as some of you have, but should have some for the next couple of weeks.
Going to use some of my Shelley Cup n saucers, have a set of two cups/saucers and cream n sugar, but going to use a different cup n saucer that is very similar. So pretty with pink trimming on the lip and saucer edge and the pink handle. Love it...
My handsome grandson Damane joining me for tea again. It's the treats he wants.
this one is trimmed with gold, and a pink handle, but so close to the other that is called
Rose & Red
the creamer has a little rose on the spout and the creamer below has the
rose on the inside of the lip
here is the other cup n saucer that matches, one has the name on the
bottom and the other just Shelley and the number
sharing my gold fish with you, lots of little black babies, gold fish and my one Koi at the top of the picture-yellow one. Had five but the heron got the four, lovely bird...
Went to homesense today and they had these chairs - I love them, the backs are pink and grey striped material. If I only had room. They are so cheerful, the walls in my living room are grey, and I love pink. Have to share this with Pink Saturday, I'm ready already.
Now Sandi I love Lady Carlyle that is the cup n saucer that I think of right now off the top of my head.
Iam joining these posts for tea today and the rest of the week. Thank you for stopping by, I enjoyed your visit...
Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday, the Tuesdays are 5 minutes away. Weather is still wonderful, great day for tea outside in the garden.
darn forgot to move the hose, and the weeds you see going down the stairs to the basement is my Queen Annes Lace, didn't plant it, but have enjoyed having it. Must pull it out now
Join me for tea with my two new tea cups n saucers, got at the last auction and the new teapot got from ebay. My rose napkin, in the pretty black and rose cup.
couldn't get the napkin in this tea cup, it is so pretty with the roses and
the gold trimming
this one is also so pretty, gold trimming, (didn't show the handle), forgot
to show the roses inside the cup, so ran downstairs and took more pictures to
show all the roses and pedestal stemmed style tea cup.
Both of these cups n' saucers are gorgeous...
this cup n saucer is smaller than most -so dainty, I think one of my favourites,
Although the teacup that Sandi showed last week is definitely one that I would love
Isn't is pretty, it's an Adderley -below
My new teapot, first time I used it, pink with roses, gold trimming, what more would you want in a teapot?
the teapot lid of the New Country Roses, like a flower
Isn't this a pretty tea, wish you could join me...
the small dessert dish, more roses gold trim
by Royal Albert
blurry can't make out the name
Now with all this heat, my baking has fallen behind, I did have some squares above, but cheated and went to a bake shop. Tomorrow I have a cousin visiting from England with her three little boys and they are looking forward to some cupcakes, so turned on the stove and baked the cup cakes and then decked them out for little guys...
they have cars and truck surrounding the cake and stop lights and little blue car in the top,
tried to put the cloche over the holder but wouldn't work, so will transfer them in the morning. in the meantime they are parked under glass on a three tiered dish, like a three tiered parking garage.
Hope you enjoyed tea with me today, as I said above Tuesdays are 5 minutes away, so will see you in another ten minutes for the next Tea Time Tuesday,
