Little Surprises for Tea Time

Spring had come once more to Green Gables....the capricious, reluctant Canadian spring, lingering along through April and May in a succession of sweet, fresh, chilly days, with pink sunsets and miracles of resurrection and growth. ~ LM Montgomery - "Anne of Green Gables"

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday! 

I have missed you all and I want to thank you for your very sweet comments and prayers! You are such a lovely group of friends and it made all the difference having you pray for me and my family.

I want to also welcome my new followers. I am so happy to have you join my little blog!

Although much of my month has been spent in mourning, it is always a good thing to try and pick up the pieces and return to a normal life. My beloved uncle would have wanted that for he enjoyed life to the fullest.

While we were in New Brunswick, much of the snow had melted and a lot of grass is showing. The heavy rains have also helped and I can hear the song sparrows outside my windows. Spring has come at last!

This may not be the most exciting tea post in the world because I have been sick with a cold since returning home. But I hope you will enjoy my share today.

A few weeks ago, Hubby and I went into Winners and I found this sweet little covered sugar bowl. Love the wee tulip on the lid.

A friend is the sugar bowl in the tea party of life,
Sweet and satisfying to the soul. ~ unknown

The matching creamer was also there but I already had it. In fact, I had had the creamer for quite some time. 

As I was washing the sugar bowl, I got looking at the piece and discovered that it not only matched the creamer but also one of my teapots. 

All three pieces are made by Gracie China or Peppertree.

The strange thing about all this is that I had never noticed that the creamer matched the teapot until now! Duh! 

I think perhaps that was because I had always kept the teapot up above the kitchen cabinets and the creamer in another room altogether. Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to discover I had a complete tea set! Has that ever happened to you? 

I love little surprises like that!

We thank You, Lord, for blessings
You give us on our way;
May we for these be grateful,
And praise You every day. ~ Roworth

The cup and saucer is Staffordshire made in England and I love the rich green landscape. 

The thing that tickles me most about this tea set is that it will go well with any transferware pieces I have; red/pink, blue, brown, and of course, green. 

Thank you for visiting today. I am always 
delighted when you stop by and if you have 
something tea related, please do share it with us. 
Tea wares, collections such as creamers or tea spoons, tea time recipes, or a trip to a Tea Shop, all are welcome here at Tea Time.
