Tea Time Tuesday and Marty's Cloche Party

Hello friends and welcome to Tea Time Tuesday. I am taking part in Marty's Summer Cloche Party today so I have combined the two parties and you will see a few of my cloches throughout this post.

Hubby and I are still on vacation and we have been spending our time out and about browsing antique shops and such. The weather has not been very good for beach combing so we are finding other ways to enjoy our free time and looking for little treasures is one of them!

I am always in favour of decorating with a cloche. In the kitchen, a cloche stands on the counter holding some lovely butter tarts. My favourite vintage teapot, Rose Chintz by Johnson Bros., stands beside it waiting to be of service.

Sometimes I have my tea set set out in the dining room with fresh flowers.

I also enjoy displaying different pieces of my Rose Chintz such as this little vignette with the coffee pot. Yes, there's a little cloche within a cloche!

It's butter dish, but it is a cloche!


Today I have Cranberry Apple, Chai, and Rooibos tea tucked into Rose Chintz teacups along with one of my roses. I thought it all looked pretty sitting under a cloche.

Let's sit in the living room where I have tea set out on the coffee table. I am having Chai tea myself as it's my favourite at the moment.

I have some homemade Blueberry muffins too...
Under a cloche.

Rose Chintz demitasses....I never tire of my roses or my Rose Chintz. What could be lovelier than lace, roses, and china!

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

My black wire cloche holding a creamer with a few of my tea spoons. Cute, but....

I gave it a coat of paint and now it looks like this...

Two little feathered friends have found a cute place to nest. 

It may be hard to tell from the photo but the birdies are both a soft robin's egg blue, as are the eggs in the nest. So, do you like the cloche black or white?

I love cloches and I have several. I almost always have a cloche sitting here in the dining room.

And I enjoy displaying treasures under them.

Please come back next week to see my newest treasure which Hubby got me on one of our travels. She's a pretty thing!

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.

"The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure
hidden in the field,
which a man found and hid;
and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has,
and buys that field." ~ Matthew 13:44

Thank you for stopping by Rose Chintz Cottage. I would love for you to join me for Tea Time Tuesday! All you have to do is share a favourite tea cup or teapot, a coffee mug, or something tea related. If you wish, you may do coffee instead of tea or the following is acceptable too: apple cider, iced tea or iced coffee, hot chocolate, lemonade, or punch. The TTT button on my sidebar is available for you to use in your post or place on your sidebar if you wish. A poem, tea quote, or scripture verse would be more than welcome! Please link back to me so that your visitors may find their way here to visit with all my lovely participants.
