Family Day Tea

 Beautiful sunny day today, it's Family Day in Ontario, so a holiday for everyone. Took my two youngest grandsons snowboarding and came home and sat down to a quiet cup of tea. My roses are almost finished, so thought I would stick with the rose theme.

they are still beautiful aren't they, they are in a large opened decorative bowl

I so love these plates, have six and one large, they are Limoge, I used them for my tea, last spring, they are so delicate

this teapot is a Sadler, English Rose by Roy Kirkham

because of the roses the Royal Albert American Beauty of my MIL's matches perfectly, I have shown these before, but you can never tire of them. Also, matching roses on the napkin, along with teapots and cups n saucers.

the little dish is Old English Rose also Royal Albert with sweets in it
look at all our lovely snow in my pond outside, soon be gone...

there is also a china mug that matches the teapot, which hubby likes, but regardless
of mug or teacup, tea can only be in china, not the same in pottery cups.

very strong looking tea, I think it's coffee, forgot to boil the kettle, so settled for coffee as it was already made,
thank you for sharing tea with me today, and to all the Ontarioens hope you had a happy relaxing Family day and God bless..

  7. Hi Betty,
    So happy you had a nice time with your family! PEI had Family Day yesterday too although my hubby didn't get it off. In any case, because of the storm yesterday, he did get sent home so he had the day off after all. Boy, I'll be glad when this winter is over! It's been one storm after another here lately.

    Now onto a more enjoyable topic; your china is simply swoon-worthy! I just love the American Beauty pattern and the teapot and mug are a lovely match. I do love roses! Thank you for sharing such a pretty tea, Betty. Hope the rest of your week is lovely.

    Blessings and joy,
