Sweet and Simple Tea Time
"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Hello dear friends and welcome to my first Tea Time in March ~
As most of you know I have been out of commission for the past week or so and because I'm still not 'back to normal' today I am having a simple little tea in our den which is where I've been spending most of my days lately.
A pot of tea, a sweet little teacup, some stacked ironstone plates and white tulips make for a serene tea time. I had a few white carnations left too which I have in a mercury glass rose bowl.
Flowers, china, and tea just help one feel better. It doesn't hurt to have a couple of chocolate drizzled macaroons sitting nearby either.
The pretty teapot holds some English Breakfast tea.
My teacup is Bridal Rose from Bavaria and the plates are Myott fine Ironstone, called Brides Bouquet from Staffordshire, England. I love how all the patterns go together.
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
"Life should be savoured; sipped like a cup of tea."~ Unknown
There are three special occasions coming up this month; St Patricks Day, the first day of Spring, and Easter. Each one brings with it a reason to celebrate and special moments to savour. So, I thought I would have a tea party to celebrate all three rather than have three separate parties. I would love for you to join me for that special tea, "Savour the Moment Springtime Tea" which I hope to host on the 18th of March. I plan to do a Cupcake Tea or Fairy Cake Tea, as I often call cuppies fairy cakes. Would love to have you join me for that special Tea.
Thank you for visiting today. I really do appreciate all your visits and comments.
If you have a pretty teacup, teapot, or coffee mug you would like to share then please write a post about it and come join the party. I will be happy to come and visit you. Should you rather do coffee, that's fine too, as well as hot chocolate, hot apple cider, iced tea, iced coffee, lemonade, or punch in a pretty bowl.
Have a lovely day and God bless you!

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~ C.S. Lewis
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
