Tea Time Tuesday

"Come, little leaves," said the Wind one day; "Come to the meadows with me - and play. Put on your dresses of red and gold; for Summer is past, and the days grow cold." ~ George Cooper

Hubby and I took a walk through the trails yesterday and these trees were in the clearing on the way back to our car. Aren't they gorgeous?

Welcome back to Tea Time Tuesday dear friends~

Thank you to all who participated in my Pink Tea last week. Everyone was so kind and left such lovely comments. A warm welcome to all my new followers too! I'm so happy to have you join me here at Rose Chintz Cottage!

After all the pretty pink last week, my tea today is going to be in a blue theme. Surprised? You don't have to share blue. It's just that I found something blue and wanted to show it off.

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

I was out browsing the shops about a month ago, and I found this teapot. Isn't it cute?

It is the matching teapot to the teacup I found a few months ago!

I was so pleased to find it and since I didn't have a blue teapot, it came home with me. These pieces are porcelain, called Botanic Blue. I think it will be happy in my little cottage. 

Please make yourself at home and let's enjoy some Twinings Black Orange tea and some double chocolate brownies.

Each cup of tea represents an imaginary journey.~ Catherine Douzel

I normally make my brownies from scratch but I have to confess that these are from a mix. They are wonderful; nice and moist with a cup of tea.

Tea is a time to enjoy simple pleasures.

It is a time to slow down and reflect.

"Autumn is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower." ~ Albert Camus

The Autumn season is well under way bringing with it fields of gold and trees ablaze with colour. Fruit is ripe and veggies are brought in to enjoy. It is the season of the harvest and thanksgiving.

It is also the time of year that I really get the urge to bake and nest which brings me to an Announcement....

As some of you may know I am starting up a new meme this week called HOME. I love being a home maker and I enjoy making my home welcoming for my family and friends. I invite you to come along with me and join me again on Wednesday afternoon for that. You can read about that here or just go to my previous post to read all about it.

My HOME button is available for you to post on your sidebar or your HOME post if you wish. Just copy and paste.

Also, if you are a Follower of Rose Chintz Cottage, don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY. You can read about that here.

"He existed before anything else; and He holds all creation together." ~ Colossians 1:17
