Sweet and satisfying to the soul." ~ Unknown
Welcome dear friends to my 82nd Tea Time Tuesday.
The evening my cousin and I had gone junking, she found these darling pink depression glass bowls and goblets. I wanted to treat her so I bought them for her. Notice the lovely floral etching on the goblet.
Secretly, I wished I had found some too because I simply adore pink depression glass!
When we got back to her home, she surprised me the next morning by setting the breakfast table with these dishes and told me that she was giving them all to me. Three dinner plates, three salad plates, three bread and butters, and three teacups, as well as the coveted pink depression glass bowls and goblets.
Needless to say, I was flabbergasted!
Don't ever let anyone tell you that God doesn't give you the desires of your heart because He surely does!
Thank you Val, I will treasure them always and you, my dear cousin! Everytime I look at them, I will think of you.
So, let's set the table for tea...
We will start off with a nice glass of sparkling pink lemonade from France.
Mmm, it is delicious!
Bowls of fresh fruit...
"And the fruits will outdo what the flowers have promised." ~ Francois De Malherbe - Victoria magazine
....and freshly baked scones.... Notice the pretty Johnson Brothers Rose Chintz plate on which the scones are sitting!
....with your choice of strawberry jam, a lovely lemon curd from Britain, and some clotted cream.
A lovely rose graces the tea table.
The Rose Chintz plate is a gift from one of my lovely tea friends, Carolyn
You are all familiar with Carolyn's blog, Aiken House and Gardens I'm certain. While she was on a trip to southern Maine, she saw this plate and thought of me! Wasn't that sweet of her?
Those of you who know Carolyn know that her home and gardens are a haven and she hosts many garden tours throughout the summertime. She is a very gracious hostess and makes one feel right at home.
Isn't this a charming shot? This is one of the photos from her tea post a couple of weeks ago.
Not only is Carolyn a tea friend but we both live on Prince Edward Island and as little girls, we had spent many hours together playing with our dolls. So, I have known Carolyn for quite some time. Thank you Carolyn for thinking of me. Please be sure to visit her today.
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
I have tucked a few tea spoons into my vintage Rose Chintz double egg cup. This egg cup was given to me by my sweet Auntie P.
Love this pattern!
Would you like to try a scone? Some lemon curd and clotted cream with a cup of tea is such a treat.
The Victorian Chintz teacups are missing their saucers so I paired the teacup with one of my crystal embedded saucers. A little bling is always nice!
A cuppa and Victoria magazine; a lovely respite.
