Springtime Pink and Green

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello ladies! Well, here it is February which is heart month and we're half way through the winter. It's a nice sunny day and I'm thinking about springtime. Brrr, it's very cold outside but inside it's warm and cozy.

On this very cold day, nothing perks a table up more than fresh flowers and these sweet little spray roses are a good match to a new teapot. Yes, you read that correctly! I have a new teapot. *blushes* For Christmas I had been gifted a pair of glass turquoise birds to keep company with my little turquoise parrot. You remember him.

Unfortunately, the birds got knocked over and broke and I couldn't glue them back together. So the gift-giver replaced them with this teapot. Do I like it? You bettcha! What's not to love about pink and green and roses? *la sigh*

So I brought out some pink and green teacups. The green set is made by Colclough.

The pink set is made by Aynsley

A cup for you and one for me. Pretty china and a lovely Victoria TeaTime Bliss magazine.

Taking tea can be a pleasant interlude, paired with tasty foods or simply sipped piping hot from your finest bone-china cup. ~ Victoria TeaTime Bliss magazine

I favour this room in my home because it is always flooded with sunlight on a day like this. During the month of February, the sun is higher in the sky and one can see the days getting longer. Very shortly we will be able to enjoy dinner without turning the lights on. I am most anxious for spring to arrive.

I always enjoy this magazine because it is about all things tea. Lovely photos and recipes throughout. And quotes; you know how much I like quotes!

Tea today is Earl Grey.

As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common, everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful.

They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -
just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breathe it;
just the warmth and shelter and home folks;
just plain food that gives us strength;
the bright sunshine on a cold day, and a cool breeze when the day is warm. ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Thank you for your visit today. I am starting to get to the bottom of some of my ailments and in another month or so I should have a better idea of what is going on with this body of mine. I do know for certain that surgery is in my future.

Wishing you all a delightful weekend and stay cozy, dear friends!

I am joining the following parties as well~
