Tea Time Tuesday

"I'm so thankful for friendship. It beautifies life so much." ~ "Anne of Avonlea" - LM Montgomery

Hello dear friends and welcome to my last Tea Time Tuesday in August! Thank you for coming to my Anne of Green Gables Tea last week. It was wonderful to have you all share your pretties with us.

I gathered the last of my roses and some Queen Anne's Lace for my little mercury glass bowl.

Do you have some favourite teacups? I'm sure you do. I certainly have, and I found another one which makes my heart go pitter-pat! 

I found this pretty at Lori's Time Worn Treasures and Antiques shop in Charlottetown at the first of the Summer.

It is made by Queen Anne and is a lovely coral pink colour or a tea rose.

The colour reminds me of a beautiful sunrise or sunset. It is accented with white and beautiful gold leaf wreaths encircling the outside as well as the inside of the cup. The wreath also encircles the saucer. I tried to find some information on it but could find none. 

I think it looks splendid with these other two favourites of mine.

These other two beauties are made by Aynsley of England. This teacup looks blue but it's really turquoise.

The next teacup is a gorgeous shade of pink. Each set is characterised by stunning gold leaves.

I think all three are fit for a queen or a princess. What do you think?

"To beat fatigue, you'll all agree, there's nothing like a cup of tea." ~ Author unknown

I am enjoying Tetley Pomegranate Green tea with peanut butter cookies today.

A Limoges plate which my aunt gave me a few years ago.

Peanut butter cookies.

Sometimes I look at my teacups and think of them as my friends. They are sitting pretty just waiting  to lend themselves to a lovely tea time.

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.

I would love to see your favourites today. Simply link up and I'll be pleased to come and visit you.

You may do coffee in instead of tea if you wish or any of the following:
Hot chocolate, hot apple cider, iced tea or iced coffee, Lemonade, or Punch in a beautiful bowl.

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  3. Hi Sandi,
    Your featured teacups are gorgeous! I love the pretty pink and blue together. That cake plate is so lovely. Your roses are also beautiful. Thank you for hosting Tea Time Tuesday today. Take care,

  4. A lovely place to have tea is always more enjoyable with a new pink cup and sauce! I enjoy the designs created by Aynsley! The cake plate is just perfect for tea time and treats. Have a great week!


  5. All so very pretty ! I have bone china tea cups with butterfly's on . I see a lot of tea cups and saucers in the antique shops but some are a wee bit crazed and chipped , not as well kept as your ones . I will keep on the hunt to different shops to find what I am looking for ! Thanks for sharing and hosting ! Have a lovely day !

  6. Hello Sandi, I love all three of your pretty teacups - your new pink Queen Anne is my favorite! A lucky find, my friend. Your Limoges plate is a beauty as well. Would you believe I used to put plates in my garden for decoration, and one was Limoges?!!? That was before my blogland education on china!!! Have a blessed week, Sandi.
    Hugs, Beth

  7. Hi Sandi
    Your new Queen Anne teacup is a pretty colour and goes well with the others it is stacked with. I haven't made peanut butter cookies In ages but love them with afternoon tea.

  8. Hi Sandi,
    BEAUTIFUL teacup! I just love hearing you mention Charlottetown (sp?) it really brings Anne of Green Gables to life hearing you talk about the very same places as in the book/movie.
    I will be linking up to your HOME party tomorrow. See you then.
    Happy Tuesday!
