Welcome Sweet Friends To "A Colourful Cottage Tea"
The last few days at the cottage have been rainy, cloudy and windy. Hubby is off for the week and was hoping to golf but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate so far.
Today I am hoping the rain will stay away long enough for us to share tea near the colourful flowers.
As you can see the impatiens have not yet been affected by the cooler weather.
Yesterday I found this colourful floral teacup at Aurora Antique Pavillion in Edmonds, Washington.
I had been searching for one for a long time since I had the luncheon plate. Long ago I had just the saucer but when trying to clear out my cupboards, I gave it away. I am one of those people who always regrets parting with pretty mismatched China pieces.
I find the bright variety of flowers so pleasing.
The teacup and luncheon plate are a Crown Staffordshire, Made in England.
The luncheon plate is stamped with the Birks store emblem. It is a well-known Vancouver jewellery store. I am not sure if it still sells China.
If you are feeling chilly, please do wrap up in the soft cashmere blanket.
Although I am sad to say good-bye to summer on September the 21st
I am looking forward to the beautiful colours of fall!
The official first day of autumn is September the 22nd.
I want to thank Bernideen for hosting "Tea in the Garden Tuesday" and inspiring me to participate all summer long.
