Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother's Day Sweet Tea Friends!

Have you ever had breakfast in bed for Mother's Day?

(My 3 excited little children - with the help of hubby made it for me many years ago - such special memories).


The lilacs at the cottage smell heavenly!


The teacup is Hammersley Spode Victorian Violets.



The teapot is marked only Made in England. 



I hope that someone makes you breakfast in bed for Mother's Day!



Have a Wonderful Mother's Day!

Happy May!


Hello My Sweet Tea Friends!

I've missed you.

The renovations at the cottage are still in progress and it continues to be a busy time for me.




This rosy teapot today resembles the Sadler Cube but it is marked Windsor so I believe it is a newer version.



Hubby and I had some dear friends today for lunch at the cottage so I dashed out in the pouring rain and cut some deep purple lilacs that are just starting to bloom - flowers just brighten the house, don't they?

Unfortunately with this weather lately,  there will be no Teas in the Garden for me this week. 






A few pics of the renos.....





I took home one of my china cabinets and I am now short of storage so I decided to arrange some of my pretties in a basket.  It actually holds quite a few teacups and they are much easier to find and use.




I recently found some cane back chairs at Re-Store and I plan to paint  them white....more projects for a sunny summer day.  I can't wait!








Thank you for stopping by today.

I am anxious to visit you all soon!

April Sunshine


Welcome My Dear Tea Friends! 

Hurray! The Sun is finally shining! It's actually like a spring day!

Flowers and sunshine - who could ask for anything more beautiful?






Please come inside and sit in a ray of sunshine.



My dear son and sweet daughter in law surprised me at Easter with a bouquet of flowers and they are my favourite colours!  



This is my most treasured Sadler tea set which I bought before Christmas.  It's a very deep, rich pink.



The sunshine creates a welcome glare on the china.  I have missed the sunny spring mornings as we have had so much rain!


The teacup is a "Dijon" Salisbury.  I love its curvy footed gold base. 





Thank you for stopping by today.



Wishing you a ray of sunshine too!

Karen

Happy Easter!



Happy Easter Sweet Tea Friends!

 The table is set and Easter Dinner is quickly approaching. 


The china is Royal Albert's Val d'or.


I am excited to have my grand daughter over with the rest of the family.  An Easter egg hunt is planned for all!


Val d'or is a simple plain white china with gold trim.  (My daughter collects the platinum version -  Chantilly.)


I do hope that you also enjoy time with family and friends too this weekend.



Easter Blessings,
Karen
