Tea Time Tuesday

"I don't know how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to." ~ Marjorie Rawlings

Hello my dear bloggy friends and Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends! We live in a great country!

Here on the Island we have been rained in for much of our long holiday weekend and poor Hubby had caught the flu bug. So, what's one to do? Why have some tea, of course!

"Come along inside ... And we'll see if tea and buns can make the world a better place." ~ Kenneth Grahame- 'The Wind in the Willows'' 

I know - it's pink again! 

But I couldn't let those luscious peonies go to waste without having a tea time in their presence now could I?

I was hoping to do a red and white tea for Canada Day but the colours just didn't compliment the  flowers.

These beautiful flowers have inspired me and for this moment in time, this is my little place of enchantment. 

"To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat."~ Beverley Nichols

I promise next week, there will be no pink!

"The very sight of a teapot puts a smile on the face of most people. One cannot help but think of more serene and genteel times....They are a subtle reminder of all that is good in the world." ~ Barbara Roberts 

Please join me for a cup of tea and some dessert, won't you?

Rhubarb pudding and a cup of hot tea make for a  lovely repast on a rainy afternoon. And I have plenty so please help yourself.

"The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort, and refinement." ~ Arthur Gray

By the way, Hubby is feeling much better and we've been able to get out and enjoy the holiday a little.

I'm so happy you could drop by and I invite you to share something pretty from your collection of tea things today. Perhaps it's sunny where you are and you can enjoy tea in the garden. Wherever you find yourself today, I hope you can join me. Simply create a post around your tea things and link up below. Have a beautiful day everyone and God bless you!

Patterns I have used today:
Rose Bud by Maxwell & Williams
Rose Chintz by Gracie China
Evening Star silverware by Oneida
