Creamy Dreamy Whites for Tea Time

"There are times when we stop, we sit still. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper." ~ James Carroll

Hello my lovely friends and welcome to Tea Time Tuesday! As most of you know I have been on a blog break and trying to get rested up.

I am still not quite ready to come back to blogging so I will be easing myself back into it. There will be no HOME party this week but I should be able to resume it next week.

I wanted to post something today because I am hosting an Anne of Green Gables Tea next week, August 19, and wanted to be sure you all knew about it.

Hubby is still on vacation and we have been enjoying the break from routine.... 
We took a short trip to New Brunswick where we visited some family and browsed the shops. Of course we have been enjoying our beautiful beaches too.

My little tea today was inspired by this photo I found in Victoria magazine.

"Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world." ~ Hans Margolius

I felt like a quiet tea time today so I am using  my creamy white Skye McGhie teacup called Chantilly Lace. I added a few sprigs of Queen Anne's Lace which snuggle up to my teacup, similar to the photo in Victoria. 

I arranged some creamy white roses in a silver coffee pot which has a golden patina on it.

Sometimes I rather like the patina silver develops, how about you? Sometimes I like lemon in my tea.

"The secret to a well balanced life is a cup of tea in one hand and a good book in the other." ~ Unknown

A good book or magazine makes a relaxing tea time even more enjoyable.

 "Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one." ~ Ancient Chinese Proverb

Now I'm wondering what you might be sharing today. Please link up any teacup or teapot, coffee mug, or tablescape/teascape.

I will be sharing some new pieces over the next few weeks that I found this Summer. Hope you will stay tuned and share your own new finds and  pieces you have shared before. Remember we tea ladies never tire of seeing pretty china!

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.

Once again, next week, August 19, is my Anne of Green Gables Tea and I invite you to join me for that. If you can't do an Anne of Green Gables Tea  that's fine. You are welcome to participate with whatever you wish. 

I will let this week's Tea Time link-up run until the weekend so you will have plenty of time to share your treasures. Enjoy your week everyone!

If you wish, you may do coffee instead of tea or the following is acceptable too: Hot apple cider, Hot chocolate, Lemonade, Iced tea or iced coffee, or Punch in a beautiful bowl.

As a courtesy, please link back to me so that your visitors may find their way here to visit with all my lovely participants.
