Tea Time Tuesday

Hello bloggy friends and welcome to my 13th Tea Time Tuesday!

I cannot believe how fast the weeks are flying by! Just last week I was celebrating my son's birthday on Tea Time and here I am posting another tea. We are having so much fun getting together for tea, aren't we? I invite you to join me if you haven't already.

All you need to do is leave me a comment letting me know you would like to participate and then post about a favourite teacup, tea pot, or a piece of china used in a tea. A scripture verse, poem, or short story would be appreciated as well. Either of the two Tea Time buttons at the top of my sidebar are available for you to take and use for your Tea Time Tuesday post.

The lovely little teacup I am about to share with you today had also been a shower gift once upon a time. It is made in England and the pattern is called Veronica. It is fine bone china and made by Royal Albert.
This teacup has long been a favourite of mine because of the shape of it and the colour; robin egg blue! It is trimmed with gold and has little roses on the inside of the teacup.
Would you care for a piece of caramel cake?

Unfortunately, this sweet little teacup has gotten broken in two places! First the handle broke off and now there is a piece of the bottom of the teacup broken off. I have had to glue both these pieces back on. Of course, the teacup can no longer be used to drink tea from, so what to do with it? Rather than throw it out or break it further into pieces to use in mosaic art, I have opted to use it as a votive candle holder.

It looks pretty sitting on the little robin egg blue chest in the living room. The little birdie thinks so too!
How do you use a broken teacup? I would love to hear some of your ideas!

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." ~ Matthew 5: 14-16

Thank you for stopping by for Tea Time Tuesday. The participants are in the order in which they started to participate.
