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?

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

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
