Gertrude Jekyll - excerpt from Victoria May/June 2011
Today I am sharing a new tea cup trio I found at my favourite tea room. I was very happy to discover that it was half price so I snatched it up right away.
I love the roses on it. There is a little red, fuchsia, pink, and yellow complimented by green leaves which make this a bright and perky tea cup; perfect for this time of year!
The pattern is called Rose Petals, made of fine bone china by Maxwell and Williams.
Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, a box where sweets compacted lie. ~ George Herbert
How beautiful my new tea cup looks with all the pink flowers on these pages of Victoria magazine.
I find Victoria so inspiring as I'm sure you do as well.
Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one. ~ Ancient Chinese Proverb
...and Lemon ginger tea.
I find lemon ginger tea helps to settle my stomach and I love that I can sip on a cup of this instead of using a remedy from the drug store. And yes, that's a heart shaped shortbread cookie you see. I can't help it, I love shortbread!
Did you know that Ginger has wonderful medicinal qualities? It boosts your energy and metabolism, helps to reduce the severity of colds, aids in indigestion, treats nausea, eases migraines, among other things. It tastes good too!
Perhaps you would like some Rhubarb pudding with your tea.
This is just freshly baked and it's warm and yummy with a dollop of whipped cream on it.
Next week I will be hosting my Father's Day Tea. On June 20, I will be hosting a Summer Dreams Tea. On June 21, Kathy @ A Delightsome Life is hosting her seasonal party, Savoring Summer. Please be sure to join us for all these parties.
