Tea Time Tuesday

Hello dear friends and welcome to the last Tea Time Tuesday for the month of September. Can you believe that? Already a new season has begun. I thought the following quote was a cute...

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Autumn has arrived and alas, I have embraced it as much as I can. It makes me sad to see Summer come to an end!  As you can see from the cute little pumpkins above, I have begun my Autumn decorating or fluffing as some might call it. Beautiful bright yellow mums and pumpkins adorn the front and back step and an Autumn wreath hangs on the door to welcome you all.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Hubby and I spent the better part of Saturday at the 70 Mile Yard Sale and came home with a few treasures which I will be sharing with you in the coming weeks.

My little fairy friends are spending more time indoors with me now although they were flitting about outdoors today and yesterday. It is just like a Summer day the past two days with wonderfully warm temperatures.

You remember Breena...

She and her little friend January are waiting patiently for me to show you my new teacup so that they can enjoy some tea too. January accompanied my Auntie P back from one of her trips and she is now living at my house.

Do you see my new teacup? My hubby gifted me with this teacup while we were on vacation.

Remember I had taken you to Victoria-by-the-Sea a few weeks ago? We had gone to a lovely little tea room as well as several little shops. One of those was an antique shop and he got me this....

A gorgeous pink and white teacup laced with gold filigree in a beautiful floral pattern. The cup has a sweet pink rose inside. It's a delightful addition to my collection!

There is also a rose adorning the saucer. 

This lovely vintage teacup is Windsor  from England. The gentleman who sold it to us was filling in for the proprietress that day and he couldn't tell us a thing about it. I couldn't find anything on the Internet either. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

The teacup is so thin it is almost translucent. I just love it! The soft shade of pink reminds me of a sunset when the sweet blush of pink is just starting to tint the sky in the evening.

Have you noticed the soft green place mats adorned with daisies? They were a gift from my sweet Auntie P also. My Auntie P and I are very close in case you haven't already guessed.

Gotta new teapot too awhile back. I used it a couple of weeks ago in my tea post but wanted to draw attention to it today. It's a soft sage green. Oh, I do love tea things, don't you?

Autumn is a time for pumpkins and tasty warm desserts like Peach Crisp.

I am having Ginger Peach tea today.
Would you like a cup?

I always take my tea black
and I enjoy seeing the pattern through my tea.

Would you like some Peach Crisp with your tea?

A dollop of fresh whipped cream in the bottom of the glass with warm and crumbly peach crisp layered on top. Then another dollop of whipped cream on top of that. Yum!

Hubby brought home the lime green carnations. He's so good to me! Aren't they pretty?

Fruit, flowers, and tea...a lovely combination for Autumn or anytime.

The fairies agree!

Life is a cup to filled, not drained. ~ Anonymous

Now, just one more cup of tea while I peruse two of my favourite magazines; Victoria and Tea Time.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my new vintage teacup. 

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
