Tea Time Tuesday

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...

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,

for this week I will be joining

  4. Good morning Betty,
    What a pretty tea you have set out in the garden. Love the tablecloth and lace! Both your teacups are lovely but I am loving your sweet teapot!

Thank you for joining me and have a delightful day.
