Pink Roses in Bloom



Good Day Dear Tea Friends!

The pink roses are now in bloom, even though we did have a rainy week. 


It's drizzling again today so unfortunately the tea pics will be indoors.


The pastel toned teacup trio is Made in Bavaria.  







Thank you for your visit today!

Have a Wonderful Week!

June Red Roses


Hello Sweet Tea Friends!

The sun is shining and I am happy to be outside enjoying the bright red June Roses!


My dear friend Dawn gifted me with a small Old Britain Castles creamer.


A perfect addition to my collection.  (Small fits in the full cupboard more easily - Lol!)








The white peonies are almost finished blooming.


The white roses have just started to bloom.
I love white flowers!





Hoping that your roses are in bloom too!

Have a Wonderful Week!

Happiness is Teapots!


Hello Dear Tea Friends

I must apologize again for my absence from blogland.  


I have missed you all and hope that you are well.


My love for teapots contines to grow stronger and the latest addition is this large Mason's Vista.


When I received it this week in the mail I was surprised by it's size.  It will make a very big pot of tea!  


I had wanted one for so long to match the dinner plates and teacups that I have gradually collected.






Do you find happiness in teapots too?


Have a Wonderful Weekend Sweet Friends!

Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother's Day Sweet Tea Friends!

Have you ever had breakfast in bed for Mother's Day?

(My 3 excited little children - with the help of hubby made it for me many years ago - such special memories).


The lilacs at the cottage smell heavenly!


The teacup is Hammersley Spode Victorian Violets.



The teapot is marked only Made in England. 



I hope that someone makes you breakfast in bed for Mother's Day!



Have a Wonderful Mother's Day!

Happy May!


Hello My Sweet Tea Friends!

I've missed you.

The renovations at the cottage are still in progress and it continues to be a busy time for me.




This rosy teapot today resembles the Sadler Cube but it is marked Windsor so I believe it is a newer version.



Hubby and I had some dear friends today for lunch at the cottage so I dashed out in the pouring rain and cut some deep purple lilacs that are just starting to bloom - flowers just brighten the house, don't they?

Unfortunately with this weather lately,  there will be no Teas in the Garden for me this week. 






A few pics of the renos.....





I took home one of my china cabinets and I am now short of storage so I decided to arrange some of my pretties in a basket.  It actually holds quite a few teacups and they are much easier to find and use.




I recently found some cane back chairs at Re-Store and I plan to paint  them white....more projects for a sunny summer day.  I can't wait!








Thank you for stopping by today.

I am anxious to visit you all soon!
