A Fanciful Pink Tea

Fall....the time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale. ~ Lauren DeStefano

Welcome to Rose Chintz Cottage and another Pink Tea Time, dear friends! 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I am sharing a lot of pink this month.

This is what I woke up to today. It's safe to say, I'm not happy! It's simply way too early for this stuff!

I like the softer side of Fall and I love pumpkins, especially pink and white ones. 

I have painted a few Baby Boos over the years. Of course some of the wee ones have to have a little sparkle such as this little pink one.

What is it about pumpkins that fascinates us so? I think it is a love for Cinderella and her pumpkin coach that lives inside of each of us since we were little girls.

I still love the story of the poor servant girl who was transformed into a beautiful princess and adored by her prince and her little critters.

This Royal Dalton figurine reminds me of Cinderella so she is joining us for tea today. As you can see her frock is the Lavender Rose pattern.

A Dream is a wish your Heart makes. ~ Cinderella

I am still using my RA October Cosmos teacup and will continue using it until the end of the month. I think it looks so cute with the golden bejewelled Baby Boo in it. Kind of reminds me of Cinderella's coach....Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! - from Cinderella

And where there is goodness, there is magic. - Cinderella

I tried to use Picmonkey on my pumpkin and my computer froze twice on me. I guess the program and Mac don't like each other so I am going to have to find another photo editing site. 

*Thank you, Judith, your advice worked!*

The tea party is a spa for the soul. You leave your cares and work behind. ~ Alexandra Stoddard

I am using my Aynsley teacup today. It is a favourite because I love the crocus shape with the pink roses sprinkled all over the cup and saucer. The roses inside the cup add a little something special too. 

My Royal Albert New Country Roses teapot holds our tea.

I have home made Cranberry muffins. The crunchy sugar top makes them a sweet treat with the tart cranberries. 

The vintage butter knife once belonged to my mother.

Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.

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

To all you beautiful ladies who have survived breast cancer, to those of you who are living with breast cancer, and to those of you who have lost a loved one to breast cancer or any cancer, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. God bless you all!

Thank you for stopping by today. I consider you my friends and I hope you enjoyed your visit.

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer. ~ An Irish prayer
