It's a Turquoise Kind of Day..

When we went to Ireland we were told if it was raining too wait five minutes and it would change to sunny, well that's how our weather has been this last little while. Sunday and Monday were off and on with the sun, so we are going to have our tea inside today ( was actually yesterday, I'm late)
So come in pull up a comfy chair and hope you enjoy...

You can have your choice on cup n' saucer, the fluted dish got at auction years ago, came from a gorgeous home of beautiful glass, china and furniture. The stand came with it, although I don't think they are proper, but I leave them as they were.

You have a choice of Begonia by Shelley, has a little creamer to match it. Shelley is always so feminine to use.
The two turquoise to the right are new, they are both royal Albert and loving the first right one it is

OH NO !!!!
Didnt lock the leaf in on the tea wagon. I know better.....
Oh we'll cant cry over spilt milk, although I feel like it, so disappointing, could always be worse though
This one is called Marguerite and it is very delicate too.
Lets do a little walk around while we are waiting for out tea to brew, below is a gone with the wind lamp. Turquoise outline fading out, very pretty.

Another Gone. With the Wind, biscuit container to the left came from same place as fluted dish and stand, the candle light to the right is party lite.

Birks boxes are turquoise, got these a couple of weeks ago going to use the sterling pieces for butter pattys.

This is such a lovely rose bowl hand painted by Joseline Lindstrom.
 come and have a seat, going to have calamine tea today so relaxing on such a dreary turquoise day.

below is a new umbrella my daughter gave me for mothers day, had a yellow one, and a peachy colour chair covers, now going a different route with colours. Although, Iam not repainting these chairs over again. The cushions came into the auction by themselves, so worked great on the chairs-except for colour, but I can live with it.
Even my outdoor placemats are turquoise this year, which I will show at a later date.

this is anew patio I got this year in time for our sons wedding, we live outside and this is a room that is well used.

Hard to tell here but the feeders and the stand (which is to be a train overpass-cement train below which that I will show again too) are full of goldfinches. Even my cast bird is turquoise.
A turquoise day I think is one up from a blue day.
Thank you for visiting me today, used my ipad again and for some reason won't let me get to the bottom of the page to do my links.
I'm joining Sandi at Tea Time Tuesday although Sandi is on holidays this week as is Ruth at Tuesday Cuppa Tea.

  1. What beautiful china you have - I love every item!

    I am SO SORRY about your broken teacup - I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that, too sad!

  2. Ah, sad about your teacup too. It is such a pretty one. I love your biscuit barrel. That is a winner!
    All the best, Ruthie from: http://www.ladybstimefortea.blogspot.com

  3. I did the same thing - the same way - I thought it was locked and I broke the saucer. I am so sorry! I posted my tragic moment a few months ago during the winter and I am sorry for you. Your antique pieces are really love and that unusual dish! So glad you shared at Tea In The Garden.

  4. I am so sorry about your tea cup. I love the that blue tiffany style lamp, it is stunning. Have a wonderful time! Hugs, Martha

  5. That truly is the way the weather has been here too - expecting more rain any minute! So sorry about your teacup - it is gorgeous - perhaps someone can make jewelery out of it for you. You have shared a lovely collection of delicate teacups - I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
