Tea Things Tuesdays

A warm welcome awaits you here at Rose Chintz Cottage ~

Please come in and sit a while and I will pour you some tea from my Mum's pretty teapot.
Today is my first time participating in Kim's "Tea Things Tuesdays."

I started this pattern for my mother many years ago while I was working in a jewelery store, before I ever started my family. I chose the Lavender Rose pattern because I thought my Mum would love it. It reminded me of her; it is both dainty and attractive, just like her!

It is such a lovely pattern! I love the pink roses sprinkled all over the china, so romantic!

The other day my sister arrived with the china because my mother is no longer using it. I am happy to have it!

Most of you are aware that I love teacups, teapots, and china in general. Sometimes it is bordering on obsession, I think. But then I guess those of you who are participating in this tea party, know exactly what I mean! China makes you happy!

I have just removed my mincemeat tarts from the oven. Would you care to try one with a hot cup of tea?

I so enjoy a hot cup of tea in a pretty teacup, don't you? I enjoy all herbal teas but my favourites are Green Chai and Earl Gray. Tea is beneficial in so many ways; it is both medicinal and relaxing after a stressful day. I often find a nice cup of tea and a book are great companions!

I think china reflects much about the personality of the lady who uses it. I especially love pink and roses and I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm a girly-girl. How about you? Are you a girly-girl?

Well, that is my offering for today. Have a beautiful day friends and thank you for stopping by. I would like to wish all my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday!
