Good-bye Summer, Hello Fall!


Hello Tea Friends

I'm a little sad to say good-bye to summer. So blue transferware may suit my mood today.


The blue and white china I am sharing today is  my mismatched collection, consisting of Johnson Brothers, Ridgeway, Spode and Sadler pieces. It seems to blend together nicely.  





I love this Johnson Brothers shape of teapot.  ( I have it in red and white too). 



The roses continue to bloom! Yay! :)


It's a beautiful summer-ish day at the cottage and I also love being outdoors.


This is my collection of wee, treasured creamers.
I just can't pass one by while thrifting.







Today I sadly plan to put all of my wicker and garden furniture away.  After all, it is fall.


Sweet Sis found me this large teacup planter. 


A blue bird resides inside. 




I found this sweet Dutch girl and boy cream and sugar for $2.00 and later ordered the matching teapot from e-bay for $4.00.

Aren't their faces dear?


I actually had seen the set at an antique store in Ferndale for $120.00.


You can see the fall chinese lanterns blooming in the background so I must embrace fall.


Are you a little sad to say Good-bye Summer?


Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Fall to You All!

A Sunny September Tea Time


Welcome Tea Friends!

It's another Sunny September day! And I'm hoping there will be many more this month.


I was going to give this rose trestle away but my neighbour suggested that I keep it and paint it pink and I'm so happy I did.  


I decorated the rose trestle with some watering cans and a potato masher chime that I made with one that I also planned to give away.  


I painted the handle pale pink and added some vintage spoons and blue ribbon. 





I keep thinking that the pink roses have finished blooming and then I am overjoyed to see more blooms.



This shell topped table is perfect for the beach cottage.
  




I found some nice silver pails while thrifting.  They will serve well as vintage plant holders.
.

I hope your September Days are sunny too!


Thank you for stopping by!

A Seniorita and Chintz Tea Time


Happy September Sweet Tea Friends!

Today I wanted to share a precious
  gift from my sweet sis.


It's Royal Albert's rare and beautiful Seniorita pattern.


She was so generous to give me the cake plate, tea cup and sweet dish. Love it's lacy look. Such treasures! 💚 

(I remember Martha at Martha's Favourites called it a sexy teacup ~Lol. I have been missing Martha and pray that she is okay.)






About two years ago,  I treated myself to this flowered black chintz  Gracie China "Stechol" from Winners/Home Sense.  I always ask for gift cards on special occasions.


The pink flowers were a gift from my oldest friend Debbie when she came for lunch.  (Friends since grade one!)






This Sadler cube is a lime green and sweet Lanny was helping me to search for these teapots and found it at Value Village!



It's very smokey this morning and I am hoping for rain to clear the air and help the surrounding wild forest fires.




Thank you for stopping by today!


Have a Wonderful Week!
Karen
