Feeling Blue for Tea Time Tuesday
Flowers were the language of happiness and always the gifts we gave to others. They seemed as necessary as food. ~ Elizabeth Cerutti
Welcome to Tea Time, my lovely friends! Did you all enjoy your weekend?
Today, I'm feeling blue.....Blue as in blue and white china!
Do you like my soup tureen?
I've been wanting one for years and Hubby found this one for Christmas. There is no mark on it but isn't it wonderful!
It is fabulous for holding my homemade soups, chili, stew, or a beautiful bouquet of posies!
Yellow roses, white tulips, and a few white roses from last week's bouquet fill this tureen up nicely.
Is there anything prettier in the dead of winter than blue and white enhanced by a sunny bouquet?
Naturally I brought out my JB Old Britain Castles teacups to compliment the tureen.
This 2011 Victoria magazine looks pretty in the vignette.
Yellow roses are like a burst of sunshine!
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
I am serving Victorian Garden tea in my little glass teapot which comes with its own infuser. I have had this for a few years but haven't shared it until now.
Victorian Garden is a Ceylon black tea with all kinds of lovely things in it like China green gunpowder, vanilla, and rose and lavender flowers. Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world revolves- slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. ~ Thich Nat Hahn
Tea is ready, how about a little nosh with your cuppa?
Home made Chocolate Pudding with a dollop of whipped cream and some grated chocolate. Mmm! I will share my recipe later in the week.
The plates are Blue Willow by Churchill.
My little creamer has no mark. I paid a dollar for it at an antique shop several years ago.
Tea is quiet and our thirst for tea is never far from our craving for beauty. ~ James Norwood Pratt
I would like to thank Kathy at A Delightsome Life for featuring my Hearts and Flowers Tea at her party "A Return to Loveliness" this week. I am truly honoured!
As always, it is a pleasure to have you come for tea. It's even nicer when you share something too. Do you have a lovely teacup or coffee mug, teapot, or tablescape you would like to share? I enjoy visiting a tea room too. Simply link up with me and I'll come visit you.
The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. ~ Proverbs 11:25 Wishing you JOY today!
"A joyful heart is good medicine." ~ PROVERBS 17:22

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
