Tea Time Tuesday



"Life is fortified by many friendships. To love and be loved is the greatest happiness of existence." ~ Sydney Smith


Happy Labour Day weekend and hello dear friends! Welcome to my first tea party in the month of September!


Summer is fleeting and before it's gone, I thought I would bring out my teacup with the shell imprints.



Friendship is a country,
Of the young and young-in-heart,
Made of morning's greetings,
A warm and lovely part.
Of phone calls and cups of tea,
Of days of hope and caring,
Friendship is a sturdy refuge,
Forgiveness and sweet sharing.
Memories and happy times,
Picnics, fun together,
Count among life's garlands
Friends who make heart's weather.
~ Gladys McKee



Sprinkled with pink cosmos, this teacup is a rare treasure in my collection.



It is made by Royal Albert and belongs to the 1940s Friendship series.


It has a pretty lyric style characterised by a tiny waisted cup, just like a young maiden. 




Both the cup and the saucer are trimmed with gold and have the pretty shell imprint in the china.



It is blueberry season, so I made blueberry tea.



Blueberry tea and blueberry cobbler.



Blueberry cobbler with a dollop of whipped cream.


It's not the best cobbler I've ever made. I found it a little too sweet but the blueberries are always good. I will try a different recipe next time.




"True friendship is like a rose: we don't realize its beauty until it fades." ~ Evelyn Loeb
