A warm welcome to Tea Time Tuesday my lovely friends! I am linking up to Laura's High Tea Party as well today.
I have joined Laura's tea party at the last minute so I apologize for not serving the way I should have. This post is from yesterday's tea party.
It's still the month of February so how about we celebrate Amour just a little bit longer.
purple or lavender if you will. I realise I have shared this teacup before however, it is February so I thought this sweet teacup would be the perfect choice for today.
A lavender heart shaped wreath and a sparkly butterfly accompany this pretty teacup. Lavender, butterflies, and violets just whisper of Spring to me and even though the ground is covered with a thick layer of cold, white snow, I know Spring is on its way! Winter cannot last forever!
Did you know that lavender not only smells wonderful but has healing qualities? Try a lavender tea.
Violets and is made by Royal Albert. It is made of fine bone china in England and is one in the series Flower of the Month. Royal Albert produces such pretty teacups, do they not?
The violet is also the provincial flower of New Brunswick which is where I was born.
Blue violets are the symbol of faithfulness. ~

In just a few weeks, Spring, which is my favourite season, will be arriving and in celebration of Springtime, I am going to be having a Spring Tea the week of March 21. So, all you ladies, gather your springtime treasures and teacups and get ready to share in the celebration of new life. I look forward to celebrating with you!
A good way to dream about Spring is to peruse Victoria magazine. These two issues from 2001 and 2002 are especially lovely.
