Roses for A Blue Lady

Serenity is a solitary cup of tea; pleasure is sharing it with another. ~ Victoria magazine 

Hello my lovely friends! 

I have had a very busy month and it's about to get busier. With all my appointments and surgery coming up next week, I'm sure you can just imagine.

Today I am sharing these beautiful pink roses that I arranged in a container that some Easter hydrangeas came in. 

The hydrangeas were this same shade of pink but they didn't last long so I plopped the roses in it and they look nice I think.

I'm not really blue and anyone who really knows me also knows that I prefer pink but my tea set is blue today. Hence the title of my post.

Every once in a while I bring out my Blue Willow teapot and teacup. They are such classics and the Old Britain Castles mixes well with them.

When you have flowers, books, and tea, you are never alone. ~ Alexandra Stoddard

And speaking of blue, I thought I would bring you up to date on my youngest son's cat that he adopted about a year ago. 

Merlin is a Russian Blue and he was a few months old when he was found on the streets, frightened and starving, with a broken hip. They are not sure how the poor kitty came to be living on the streets. When my son went to the Humane Society looking for a kitten to adopt, Merlin stole his heart. Merlin had gotten neutered and had a cast on his hip. Actually, my son and Merlin both just celebrated their birthdays. Doesn't Merlin look like a contented kitty? He has grown into a very big cat and is great company. I love happy endings, don't you?

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart. ~ Jane Austen

Well, that's my news for today. I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Don't forget to count your blessings. I'm sure Merlin is.

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
