Tea Time Tuesday
"To my way of thinking, there is not a more perfect day for tea with a friend than when it is cold and rainy on the outside and there is a hot, blazing fire on the inside." ~ Teatime Anytime ~ A book collection From The Clever Factory
Welcome to another tea time, ladies~
I am so happy with the nice turn-out we had last week! You are all so sweet and really made my Tea Time Tuesday celebration a huge success. Some of you really went out of your way to make it special and I appreciate you all so very much. You shared special quotes about friendship, baked special treats, and shared special pieces of china that you knew I would love. Thank you!
Before I serve our tea today, I want to share a photo from a post last week as it was created just for me. It was a little out of the ordinary and in celebration of Tea Time Tuesday's 3rd Birthday.
Isn't this pretty? I'm sure you will all agree! Thank you Johanna @ Silber-Rosen for creating this gorgeous china rose just for the occasion. If any of you missed her post then please do stop by and visit her.

We are in the dead of winter now and we have been having a stretch of very cold weather. Jack Frost has etched his way upon the window panes but inside, I have the fire burning so it's nice and cozy.
In the grocery stores, I am happy to find perky tulips. They lend a touch of springtime to any room. So, today I have set my tea on the table near the fireplace with some creamy white tulips and a simple tea. Why not curl up on the sofa and I will pour you a nice cuppa tea.
A pretty white teapot is wearing a garland of flowers....

A beautiful Colclough teacup made in England. Some of the gold has been worn from the handle. Someone obviously enjoyed sipping tea from her. I wonder what parties she has been to!
Filled with Lady Grey tea, she sits ....
.....with her companion, a Windsorteacup to pick up on the romantic feel.
Both teacups are a soft pink with white and lots of gilding. I love both of these sets but I really enjoy seeing the rose in the bottom of the Windsor cup. It's something pretty to look at while sipping my tea. I think both teacups are romantic dressed in their pink and white and gold.
Hubby and I had friends in for tea and I had made some tasty mincemeat tarts. Would you like to try one? So good!
Speaking of romance, Valentines Day is coming up and I am going to be hosting a Valentines Tea to celebrate it. It is only two weeks away so on February 11th, please join me for another special tea. I find this time of year I am inside more and a themed tea is fun to look forward to. This year, I thought I would have a Tea of Hearts, or shades of pink or red. What do you think? Would you like to join me for a Valentines Tea? If you cannot do hearts, pink or red, then just share what you love. I will be happy to just have your company!
I am always delighted when you stop by. If you have something tea related or coffee in a pretty mug, please link up below. Have a beautiful day everyone.

I live a happy life in Green Gables country with my sweet hubby who is a retired pastor. We have three wonderful sons and five darling grandchildren. I love being a home maker and I thrive on bringing beauty and comfort into my home for my family and friends to enjoy. Life is made even richer by my faith in God who has taught me, "The joy of the Lord is my strength." I am so happy you have stopped by and I welcome you through my yellow door.

"Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't become ugly, except to people who don't understand. "~ The Velveteen Rabbit
