Tea Time Tuesday

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things. ~ Rodgers and Hammerstein

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday, dear friends!

Well, I am home and recuperating. My surgery went well and it's good to have that behind me. Hubby's been making me lots of tea and waiting on me hand and foot. He's an angel! He's back to work today, so I'm on my own again. 

Before I serve tea today, I just want to say a big Thank You for all your prayers and good wishes and if I could, I would send each one of you a thank you card!

Has anyone ever told you how much you're loved and appreciated? Well, I'm telling you now and I want you to know it's because of you that I love blogging so much! 

Are you passionate about anything? I am passionate about many things; God, my family, my blog, and things like teacups and teapots. So today I thought I would share a few of my favourite tea things with you.

"Steam rises from a cup of tea
and we are wrapped in history,
inhaling ancient times and lands,
comfort of ages in our hands." ~ Faith Greenbowl

I don't know how many teacups I have because I have never actually counted them but these are a few of my favourites~

This is my favourite new teacup. It is creamy white porcelain made by Skye McGhie. The cup itself is quite small and reminds me of a calla lily. I love the lacy saucer!

Chantilly Lace

This is my favourite vintage teacup which I found in a thrift shop. I love the lush roses and the brushed on gold around the top of the cup and saucer. It has a lovely handle with a thumb rest. This pattern has been out of production for many years so I'm happy to have found it!

Old English Rose by Royal Albert

My favourite pink teacup. This is also vintage which I found in an antique shop. I love the delicate pink and lovely gold adorning this stunning cup! The pretty rose in the bottom of the cup is a sweet surprise. This same rose is in the center of the saucer.

Windsor made in England

I have several favourite teapots too.

This is my favourite new teapot which was a birthday present from my hubby...

The Friendly Village by Johnson Bros.

Favourite vintage teapot given to me by my Auntie P...

Rose Chintz by Johnson Bros.

My favourite red transfer ware teapot. There is no name on the bottom but I love everything about this pot from the wonderful red design to the raised roses.

And this is my favourite every day teapot. I think it's adorable with its creamy white colour and raised pale green roses motif. The Tea script makes it very cute. There is no name on this teapot either. It holds about two cups of tea

Would you like a cuppa tea?

Next week is Tea Time Tuesday's 2nd Anniversary/Birthday and I am celebrating it with a Rose Theme. So, bring out your favourite rose inspired china and let's have a party!
You are welcome to use this button for the party if you wish.

In February, we have Valentine's Day to look forward to and in celebration of that special occasion, I am having a Valentine's Day Tea. It will be a tea in which to share all your pink, red, and heart inspired tea things. So, bake something special and set your tea table with a romantic theme.

"To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance." ~ Matthew 25:29

I am delighted you have stopped by today and I would love for you to join me for my tea party. 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.
