A Little Blue for Tea Time Tuesday

September ~ The month when Summer nods her head to Autumn. ~ Author- Your Hostess

Welcome friends to my second Tea Time in September~
It's been a while since I shared any blue and because I found a blue teacup a while ago, I thought a blue post was in order today.

It seems I have gone on a teacup hunting rampage this summer. I have found so many wonderful teacups and the majority of them have been at such wonderful bargain prices; Yay!
I will be sharing them with you in the coming weeks so be sure to keep coming by for tea.

This teacup is called Botanic Blue and is adorned with florals and a sweet little blue butterfly inside the cup; perfect for a late Summer day!

My blue Wedgwood Homes of Britain teacup and Blue Willow plate join the party, with a pretty blue tablecloth beneath it all.

Love this birdie topped teapot which is holding Earl Grey tea!

This little boy figurine has been around since my children were small and I thought he would add a touch of whimsy. See, he's giving thanks for his tea!

Some blueberry cheesecake and champagne grapes for a wee nosh.

"Teach us delight in simple things." ~ Rudyard Kipling 

Which cup would you like?

Two teacups are waiting,
the kettle sings,
and just on time,
the doorbell rings. ~ Unknown

Tea is a hug in a cup. ~ Patrick Jane of "The Mentalist"

"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it." ~ Hebrews 13:2

Would you like to see a wee more blue? My friend Heather had a birthday not long ago and I had gifted her with a lovely Spode teacup. Now Martha, I know you will especially like this!

I took some photos of Heather's new teacup as well as a few of her other wonderful blue pieces. Enjoy....

She had a beautiful bowl of apples on the table and I had to take a shot of it too.

Then she brought out a couple of Spode teacups another friend had gifted her with and we set them beside my teacup.

Aren't they lovely! The sun was streaming in behind me so the light is playing havoc with the camera.

Thank you Heather for giving us a peek at some of your lovely blue and white china.

I hope you have all enjoyed the blue today. A nice change from pink, don't you think?

Remembering the victims and their families of 911 today!

I am delighted you have stopped by for tea today! Your presence always makes my tea party that much more special and I am happy to see all your tea things, whether you have shared them before or not. This tea party is all about sharing your joy of tea time and any thoughts you might have on the subject. You may be as creative, fancy, or as laid back with your tea time as you wish!
