My Last Pink Tea for October in Honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I believe in being strong
when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls 
are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow
is another day,
and I believe in miracles. ~ Audrey Hepburn

Hello lovely ladies and welcome to my last Pink Tea for October! I think Audrey had a wonderful philosophy. I know being happy and counting your blessings can take you a long way. 

Anne of Green Gables said, "....isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?" ~ LM Montgomery  
And yes, I too, believe in miracles.

Most people like to be around happy people. One of the reasons why I was attracted to my hubby, besides his being so cute, was because he was a happy guy and he made me laugh. 

Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn, or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. ~ Denis Waitley

Many things make me happy and some of those things include pretty teacups and roses. Sipping tea from a lovely teacup brings a sense of gentility and peace into one's life. 

Today's teacups are two that are very different but are both a beautiful soft pink adorned with lots of gold. In keeping with my Pink for Breast Cancer, I am also using my soft pink teapot.

Please make yourself at home and let's enjoy some tea and home made Cherry squares frosted with pink icing.

When I first began getting my post ready, it was bright and sunny. 

Since then it has started to rain so, to add a little coziness, I have lit the fire.

When you're cold, tea will warm you!

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea. ~Henry James

Some of the china I have used in this post today is made by: Colclough, Windsor, Skye McGhie, Peppertree, Johnson Bros., and Ganz. The vintage silverware is Evening Star by Oneida.

This concludes my Pink Teas for October. Next week is a new month and for my American friends, Thanksgiving is in the air. Those of us who live in Canada are preparing for Christmas. The next number of weeks will be a whirlwind of activity and preparations. Be sure to take a few moments out of your busy schedule to relax and enjoy a cup of tea. 

"Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes." ~ Charles Dickens

Have a beautiful day everyone and be sure to get your mammogram!
