First Tea Time in June

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. ~ Jawaharlal Nehru

Welcome friends to my first Tea Time in the month of June! The months are really flying by, aren't they? It's a good time to slow down and savour this moment, for this moment is fleeting. And what better way to slow down than with a cup of our favourite tea!

Summer will soon be here and I am going to be hosting another "Savour the Summer" Tea Party. On June 23 until June 28 you are invited to share your Summer themed teas. It may be an outdoor tea or an indoor tea. Many blooms will be in season by then so we should have a lovely variety to choose from. I hope you will be able to join me for that.

My little fairy bids you, "Come in!" 

She's the guardian over my blueberry cheesecake today.

haven't featured any blue for a while so I have set the tea table with my pretty Botanic Blue.

It is written on the arched sky; it looks out from every star. It is the poetry of Nature; it is that which uplifts the spirit within us. ~ John Ruskin

These pieces are adorned with butterflies and a variety of flowers.

 I am having Stash Double Bergamot Earl Grey tea today.

All the blues remind me of the bright blue sky above us and the beautiful blue water that surrounds us here on PEI.

This blue is especially appreciated in the summertime when we're spending time at the beach. One of my favourite places to be!

{For those of you who were wondering about my new wall colour in the living room, you can see it behind the teapot.}

Tea is a meal for all seasons; it's also suitable for all occasions. ~ Angela Hynes

Both the creamer and the teacup have a little butterfly just inside the rim.

The past number of days have been just gorgeous and I have been able to open the windows.
I love the scent of spring and summer in the air! You know what I'm talking about. It is warm and heavily laden with a scent I can't quite describe, only that it is unforgettable. Just like a good cup of tea.

Our home is filled with warmth and love,
Prayers and gifts from heaven above.
Please bless these things that we love best,
O dear Lord, please bless our nest. ~ Veronica Curtis

Thank you for visiting today and if you have some tea things to share, I would love to see them! Teacups, teapots/coffee pots, coffee mugs, tablescapes, a new tea you have discovered, or a trip to a Tea Shop; all are welcome here at Tea Time!

You are welcome to do coffee instead of tea or any of the following~ iced tea or iced coffee, lemonade, hot chocolate, hot apple cider, or punch in a lovely bowl.

  4. Hi Sandi,
    Your blue and white china is so very pretty today and your blueberry cheesecake looks amazing! Whenever I am planning my post I always reach for pink teacups and I really must try adding blues. Thank you for hosting Tea Time today! Happy June!

  5. I love your blue tea setting today! ...and the cheesecake....scrumptious!

  6. Hi Sandi, I can’t believe June is here already! My favorite summer month for the mostly blue skies and mild temperatures. A wonderful time to be outside. Your cheesecake looks delicious and would taste divine with tea or coffee. I would love a slice. Beautiful Botanic Blue to feature. Thank you of hosting this lovely tea party! Happy June to you..............

  7. Your blue and white china is so lovely. The guardian is very sweet

  8. Hello Sandi
    How sweet that we both have a fairy for tea today. I like the Botanic Blue teapot, just the right size for two and a piece of blueberry cheesecake.

  9. I love all your blue and white, Sandi. It's so soothing and pretty. Your new paint color looks wonderful and calming. I didn't get anything ready today for your tea, but so wish I could have a slice of your cheesecake. xo

  10. I love your gorgeous blue teawares and that cheesecake -- oh my! My dad has lots of blueberry bushes, and now you've really got me hoping for fresh blueberries sometime in the near future. I so love all these pretty blues!

  11. What a lovely blue teapot and table setting! I always enjoy seeing the beach of Prince Edward Island. You can be like Anne out there but don't let you blog post notes blow away!!!

  12. Love your blue and white, Sandi. It's beautiful. One of my favorite teas is Earl Grey but I have yet to try this one. Your table is so welcoming. Hope you enjoyed your tea & dessert. Deb

  13. Hi Sandi, I love all your blue and white tea goodies. I really like how you put the teapot on the clear glass cake lovely.
    I hope to get back into my tea time things soon.
    My hubby has been sick for 5 weeks and is finally able to hear a bit better.

  14. The blue teapot and cups are gorgeous and the blueberry cheesecake--so yummy.

  15. Hi Sandi,
    I love your blue and white china set!
    Hope you are enjoying these beautiful sunny days.

    Thank you for hosting,

  16. Good Morning Sandi! I love blue and white. The cheesecake looks delicious and it's probably a good thing that your little fairy is its guard!!! Thanks for hosting. Cheers!

  17. Hope I'm not too late to join this tea party. But, one thing for sure is I will be there to join you for the summer tea party. Your little fairy friend is so adorable! And oh I love bergamot-flavoured teas. Perfect for cheesecake.

    Hope you have a good week Sandi.

  19. Hello Sandi,
    I can hear how delighted you are with spring! Me too : )
    It is so lovely to be able to sit outdoors again. Our weather has turned gorgeous as well, and I am thankful!
    Your blue and white tea today is lovely as ever! I see the tiny little bit of wall coloring. I bet you are very happy to have that done. We are facing house painting ourselves this summer.
    I hope to join you at some point for Savoring Summer.

  20. Happy June, Sandi! I LOVE blue and white china - it's my all-time favorite, and your's is lovely! Your blueberry cheesecake looks delicious and I'm sure it was with your Earl Grey tea. ~ Phyllis

  21. Hello Sandi. Such a sweet and lovely tea. The blue and white is so welcoming and inviting. That pattern is stunning. But the blueberry cheesecake looks pretty amazing my friend. I have to give that recipe a try. Your photos are beautiful.

    Wishing you a wonderful week,


  22. Oh, Sandi, your tea table is lovely. Those yellow tulips are stunning with the blue.

    I love Stash Double Bermot Earl Grey. It is one of my favorite teas ever.

    Oh, and the blueberry cheesecake---all I can say is "Yes, please."

    Blessings on your day,

    I have been drinking green tea mostly lately
    my favorite is summer Pudding from London

  29. Wow!! I am practically swooning over this post, so beautiful! I just love your blue and white pieces, so gorgeous! I wish I were linking up this week, it may not happen, but I'd wanted to pop in anyway. Just lovely! Beautiful blog. Thank you for sharing with us.

  30. Dear Sandi,
    Glad you shared some blue with us this week, love the tea pot and the new colour of the walls. Yes, our skies have been lovely lately with the exception of today and I guess that is ok. I'm looking forward to a summer tea, in the garden would be nice. I'm running a little late visiting this week - when you stop by you'll see why. That cheese cake is dreamy looking.

  31. Your Botanic Blues are just delightful. And I wish I could have just one bite of that blueberry cheesecake! Happy Tea to you.

  32. I love your beautiful blues Sandi. From your gorgeous , the cheesecake, and the beach! Nothing quite as refreshing as the color blue. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  33. Blue and white dishes have a fresh crispness that I like so much, Sandi. Yours go very well with the delicious looking blueberry cheesecake!


  34. Sandi: You make and create some of the most scrumptious desserts ever. They make your mouth water. Good show! Love Auntie P
