A Cream Tea for Tea Time Tuesday


Perhaps it is while drinking tea that I most of all enjoy the sense of leisure. ~ George Gissing


Welcome to Tea Time dear friends~ Thank you so much for your wonderful support last week! You made my Anniversary Tea Party such a success with your participation, lovely comments, and visits. You really are wonderful friends!

Today I am sharing another Christmas gift I received. Before the holidays, I had shared my new Staffordshire teacup trio which I had found at an antique shop.


Well, Hubby went back and got me a second set. I just love this rich green transferware! A charming scene is depicted on it and of course it is made in England. Now I have a cup for you and a cup for me.


If you have been joining me for any length of time then you know how much I love transferware.


My sweet hubby arrived home from work with these bright yellow tulips. Tulips remind me of springtime and if you're anxiously awaiting Spring like I am, then you know there are only about seven and a half weeks to go!


Tea began as a medicine and grew into a beverage. ~ Okakura Kakuzo

 
So I set out our tea with my tulips and I hope you enjoy it.



 I am having a Cream tea today with whipped cream served in a crystal goblet and lemon curd in a tulip shaped dish.


With tulips one must have a birdie or two so I'm putting my birdie teapot to use today.


A cup of Twinings Earl Grey.

 Tea biscuits with whipped cream and lemon curd.


Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.


Thank you for your company today. If you have a teacup, coffee mug, teapot, or tablescape to share I invite you to link up and join me for Tea Time. I love seeing Tea Rooms too.


Wishing you a beautiful day filled with joy!
