Late Night Tea

Congratulations Sandi on your 3rd anniversary. I had planned on using my Old country Roses Tea Mugs that match Sandi's teapot and cup n saucers, but the gold is wearing off, no way for an anniversary get together. I am late getting this arranged so going to use two favouri
te china mugs, they are Staffordshire-David Michael China, great size, Lily of the Valley, I love them. It's 11:30 past, and I love a cup of tea late at night, had my cup cakes, which is bad, now enjoying a pot of Dreamland Tea, it's -17 outside and I'm so cozy on the settee in our bedroom posting my blog.

when we were in England at the afternoon tea, we had a charming white teapot, that I loved the shape of, this one I got at Homesense, and use it all the time. It came with a insert for tea leaves in it, but not needed tonight. This is my old 1957-1960 stove a General Electric, have two ovens with two drawer underneath, sometimes they are a warming oven but mine isn't it. Now not to over use the word Love, but I Love my stove. Had a man come to give me a price years ago on a new countertop and he looked at the stove and said "mam the first thing you have to do is get rid of this old stove", I said to him-do you know how long it took me to find it? No Way. Anyways, back to our tea
Made some miniature cupcakes today, so join me for a cup of tea and cupcake in our bedroom, gee that don't sound proper, let me refrain it-please join me for a cup of dreamland tea upstairs in our sitting room...
these roses I bought a week ago
today at the grocery store for 10.00 dollars, they are still looking great, if I had got them at a florist they would be dead by now.
upstairs in our sitting room -the tray is sitting on my Mackenzie Childs footstool
just added this doilie, seeing if my blog is back to being able to add the pictures through the normal link -and yes I can, so excited about that. This doilie has pink flowers on the outside and one in the centre...
thank you for joining me for tea this evening, it is my pleasure and come again. Be sure and leave a comment,

  1. What a truly lovely tea.

    I know exactly what you mean about grocery flowers, they're the best and longest lasting and most inexpensive!!

    I laughed out loud about your old stove. Good for you. I had one like that but not two oven one but similar looking when I was first married. I bet it's still out there working somewhere, they're built to LAST!

  2. Hello Betty,
    Your late night tea looks lovely. How nice that you have a sitting area in your bedroom! It must be very relaxing. A nice cup of sleepy tea before bed can be very helpful.
    I do love Lily of the Valley and your two tea mugs have the perfect design of them! So pretty!

  3. Perfect! I love the mugs...such a pretty shape and pattern. The cupcakes don'y look too bad either! LOL! Thanks for sharing your late night tea with us here on Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  4. Hello dear Betty,
    What a lovely tea! Your mugs are so pretty and I like your tea pot. Isn't it funny that man didn't recognize the uniqueness of your stove!
    My picture browser button is working again. I'm wondering if yours is. I hope so, it makes creating a post so much easier. Thank you, my friend, for joining me for my special tea this week and keep warm. It's -18 here right now. It's a cold week!


  5. Your tea set on the tay looks soooooo beautiful and so inviting. Makes me want to sit and have a wonderful muffine and some tea and just enjoy it all. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  6. Nice visiting and seeing your lovely pink flowers.

  7. oh yes , tea and a cupcake (or two?) for me please !
    everything looks so lovely and inviting.

  8. Grocery store flowers are always fresh where I shop and much cheaper than the florist. I favour carnations over anything because of how long they last but your pink roses are gorgeous and have kept well too.
    I bake cupcakes often so while trying to lose weight, recently bought a mini pan and just hope I won't eat twice as many.

  9. Oh my sweetheart, just darling! Love your pretty pin rose,

  10. I really enjoyed your Pink Saturday post this week!

    I'm hosting a PINK THEMED giveaway, and I would love it if you stopped by and entered your comment for a chance to win some handmade items.

  13. Hi Betty ... I so enjoyed your blog. Love your beautiful, perfect rose. Great stove and those old ones were made to last. It is a real keeper. You have some beautiful tea cups too.

  15. Oh...love the stove! I wish I had one in my kitchen. Your teapot is lovely. Isn't HomeSense great? I enjoy shopping there but try not to go too often so I'm not tempted. :o)

    The roses are so pretty and how wonderful they've lasted so long. Enjoy them!
