Tea Time Tuesday

"Fairest of months! Ripe summer queen

The hey-day of the year

With robes that gleam with sunny sheen,
Sweet August doth appear."
~R. Combe Miller 

Hello dear friends and welcome to another Tea Time Tuesday! Did you all have a nice weekend? My h
ubby and I were away for the weekend visiting my family in New Brunswick so my post will be a wee bit shorter today.

It was a busy weekend so I am enjoying some peace and quiet today. The sound of birds singing outside my window and the scent of summer is wafting its way through the open windows.
I do love this time of year!

For our tea today, I am using a teapot I found at the Anne of Green Gables Store at the beginning of the Summer.

It is sitting on a Skye McGhie plate called Coventry Garden.

The Coventry Garden teacup goes well with it. I love these beautiful pink roses that smile sweetly from these pieces!

I have decided to move my tea into the living room where I can watch the birds at the feeder.

These are my last roses of Summer. It is sad to see them go!

I have a cup of tea for you too. This is another Skye McGhie teacup called Chantilly Lace.

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.

 "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, like pearls slipping off a string." ~ L. M. Montgomery

Tea is a hug in a cup. ~ Unknown

"Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company." ~ Unknown

"But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13

Next week I will share another new teacup which I found on the weekend. Thank you for visiting today. Your presence always makes my tea time that much more special! I would love to have you join me by linking up below and I will be happy to come and visit you.
