Tea Time Tuesday

Welcome to another glorious day for Tea Time Tuesday, I am going to have it on the deck today under my teacup chandelier. Will go blue and white as the chandy is that colour and my table cloth blue.
First though I want to share a Gazebo that my husband and I have fundraised for the past year and it was built on Thursday past, it is so beautiful for our little village.

Isn't it beautiful, we have Music Night in the Park on Sunday evenings, and had our first the other Sunday, sound was great, they put their speakers on the cement corners-needs to be landscaped and that will come. The gazebo is on the other side of our school house below.
Now on to the tea

My blue and white teacup and saucer chandy, I did show this a couple of weeks ago, but it helps set off my tea for today

A couple of weeks ago I got two new cups n saucers at the auction

this one is so pretty

Royal Crown Derby set, (I do have cups n saucers to match, but sort of boring-
                                                           will save that for another time)

Isn't this little relish or celery dish pretty, got it at an outside estate auction for peanuts with another one, no one was interested in them, just love it.

table cloth is a plastic linen cutout, had it for years and would like more, but can't find them.
Flowers are mine from a hydrangea bush (hope that's right), in an old crock.
Sterling fork, beige napkin (Blues disappered in the cloth) with a ring napkin holder.
My favorite treat, watermelon and marble cheese, with red rose tea.

Thank you for visiting my tea, hope you enjoyed it.
                                                                   I really love comments

  1. Fabulous teatime setting with your Blue Mikado tea set...What a wonderful find ... Both tea sets are charming accents for your marvellous tablecloth ..a very unusual blue...I love it !!!... and Yes ... Your gazebo is to die for... What a wonderful creation...DID you build it yourself? ... I'd say your teatime is complete...Thank You for sharing ...Hugs

  2. Absolutely gorgeous with some of my favorite patterns! I love Blue Mikado and your other teacups are wonderful! Blue and white is my all time favorite color combo...it's the scheme in 2/3 of my home! Thanks for sharing your beauties and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  3. Betty, Your table looks so lovely in the blues. The teacup chandy is a stunner! I love the gazebo too.

  4. Oh Betty,
    Your treasures are so adorable. Nothing can beat the white and blue combo.

    Great finds.

    Happy TTT,

  5. Hello Betty,
    What a lovely gazebo! I would love to have one in our backyard! I love your blue and white chandy; adorable! Your china is gorgeous and I do love blue and white although I do not collect it. I can't collect everything as I don't have the room in our wee cottage. I wouldn't mind having a couple place settings of it but just like the red transferware, the blue is very hard to find around here. Pretty new teacups too. Thank you for sharing them with us and joining me for tea. My next acquisition hopefully will be a Serena teacup; love that pattern too! Have a lovely evening.


  6. Oh, so lovely! The gazebo is just fabulous....what a beauty. LOVE the blue and white dishes...and the flowers...and the lamp! Pretty :)

  7. Your teacup chandy is so charming, I love it! I am glad you showed it again cause I missed it the first time. Your blue and white tea things put together are lovely and I love the little tray, love the children on it.....Christine

  9. those hydrangeas are soooooo beautiful and fresh. How did you keep people for not wanting tea? The setting is so lovely! Thanks for linking up to Tea In The Garden.

  10. LOVE all the beautiful blue pieces in this post!!
    And that gazebo is to die for!


  11. What a pretty post! The gazebo is gorgeous, as are your table and chandelier. That's such a clever idea for a light fixture!

  12. Wow! I wish we had a beautiful gazebo like that in our little town! Perhaps someday! Your blue teacup chandy is lovely - and I am swooning over those dishes you found at the estate auction - wow! I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
