Tea Time Tuesday

Ahh, Summer! Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday, dear friends! This is my 26th tea time post and I want to welcome all my regular participants plus my new friends who would like to take part in Tea Time. We are having such a lovely time sharing our tea things every week and we're all meeting some wonderful tea friends as well.

So, please come in and make yourself comfortable. I will pour you some tea from my newest tea pot and we'll have a chat.

"There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea." ~ Bernard-Paul Heroux

My hubby and I are on vacation, or rather he is, *smiles* and we have been spending a lot of time at the beach. We find it so relaxing and peaceful there. We always choose a quiet spot and just sit back and listen to the sound of the waves and the birds. We like to go for walks and just enjoy the sounds of Summer.

At home, there is the scent of flowers on the air and the sounds of little song birds in the trees all around our home.

When I spotted these newest treasures a while back, I thought of all the things I love about Summer and these pieces just say it so well!

A tea pot and a tea-for-one set with the same pattern so I will share them both today.

The name of the pattern is Floral Treasures. The pattern is so soft and pretty with some of my favourite things on them; hydrangeas, little birdies, and a Frenchy script.

A lovely Coconut cake is standing by all dressed up in fluffy white coconut to enjoy with your tea.Or, if you prefer, a bowl of berries fresh from the field. Oh dear, you can almost see my reflection in the spoon.
The candles are lit and one of my little birdies has stopped by to join us.
"Find yourself a cup of tea; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things." ~ Saki


A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way.

A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day.

A friend is like a flower
That's worn close to the heart.

A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.

"What a Friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer.
Can we find a Friend so faithful Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness; Take it to the Lord in prayer."

~ Joesph M. Scriven {1820-1886} Charles C. Converse {1832-1918}
