The Colour of the Sea and the Sky....and Carnations for Tea Time

 I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June. ~ LM Montgomery - Anne of the Island

Hello friends and welcome to another Tea Time! Can you believe it is June already? One can look forward to those "lazy, hazy, crazy days of Summer." 

I love the scent of late Spring and Summer, don't you? There is something in the air, a warm balmy scent which is hard to describe. Sometimes it is laden with the scent of flowers and other times, freshly cut grass. I think, other than Christmas, it is the most romantic time of the year.

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance. ~ Bern Williams

Summertime for me means walks on the beach with my hubby and I cannot wait to get out there and savour the warmth of the sand between my toes and the sound of waves lapping on the seashore. It's a most peaceful place. *Sigh*

My boys will soon be home too so I'm also looking forward to that.

What do you look forward to this Summer?

Now onto my tea....
I am sharing blue tea things today. A pretty Botanic Blue teapot, teacup, and creamer all made by Port Meirion. 

All three of these pieces have an overall floral and butterfly pattern with tiny polka dots in the background; very summery in design. I also have a pink coffee mug in the same pattern but I won't share that today.

The teacup and creamer both have a wee butterfly just inside the rim. 

Blue, the colour of the sea and sky.  

Also on the table is a vintage pink depression glass teacup. Sorry, I forget the name of the pattern.

I have two of these cups which I found at an antique shop a few years ago. The pink, to match my flowers. 

Last week's carnations have a bit of browning around the edges which gives them an old fashioned appeal and the other posies are the same shade as the carnations; sort of a peachy-pink. A frilly, fluffy bouquet for our tea table. Pretty?

Won't you join me for a cup of tea? I'm having Twinings Chai today. I always take mine black.

A cuppa and a lovely magazine.

Have a beautiful day everyone and enjoy this new season which is upon us.

I love things that bear the touch of time; chips and all - they're more beautiful than perfection. ~ Victoria magazine
