Pretty in Pink and White for Tea Time

"Time spent in the company of a friend is like a golden moment in our day." ~ Ron Lessin 

Hello dear ones and welcome to Tea Time!

Hubby and I are on vacation; yay! So, for the next several weeks we will be on the go quite bit and I will most likely be slower getting around for my visits. Our middle son will be coming home for a visit during this time too. So, please bear with me. 

For our tea today, I have brought out some of my Royal Albert china.

I have set them out on the coffee table. The room is very bright when the sun is shining and oftentimes, it is hard to take pictures.

Sweet vintage tea spoons - Evening Star by Oneida. These tiny spoons are part of a set my parents received from my grandparents as a wedding gift. You have seen them many times but I do treasure them and I always use them for tea!

"May your life always be like a pot of  tea... overflowing to warm the soul." ~ An Irish Blessing 

Cucumber sandwiches with fresh Island strawberries. Sometimes I prefer a sandwich to a sweet. How about you?

Shall we drink to Friendship?

My beautiful and fragrant roses are going through a dry spell and they have stopped blooming, so I picked up a bouquet at the grocery store.

Beautiful as they are, they have no fragrance.

No matter; tea will make it better! I love how the camera caught the light just so and there is a lovely pink hue in the picture.

I am always delighted to look out the window and watch my little goldfinches at the bird feeder. These little beauties sure enjoy sunflower seeds!

I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life that are the real ones after all. ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder 

Till next time, have a wonderful day and savour the sweet, simple joys around you!
