A Dainty Blue Tea

Happy Tuesday Dear Friends,
Welcome to "A Dainty Blue Tea". 
This delicate Shelley teacup is entitled "Dainty Blue".
The colors of blue daisy flowers are vibrant against the bright white porcelain background of the china.

It's inner cup is also adorned with blue flowers
The saucer has a lovely flower outline and almost resembles a white star shaped flower in the middle. 
 Today I am using a variety of china pieces representing a few countries in our small world.
 The cream and sugar are Roslyn Fine Bone China and are Made in England. 
 The coffee pot is from West Germany and is entitled 
Doris Bayerisch-Blau.
Last night hubby and I entertained my son's soon to be in-laws.  They were born in Indonesia and came to Canada in 1998.
They are so very generous and kind and brought us a nutritious fruit basket including dragon fruit.
We enjoyed some light and refreshing Jasmine Tea 
And some sweets and treats during our evening together.
The plate resembles Denmark's Royal Copenhagen.
We do love our precious daughter-in-law. She and her family are indeed a blessing and a welcome addition to our family. 
As our Canadian Thanksgiving Day approaches I am thanking God for my loving family, good health and wonderful friends around our small world ~ friends like you!
What are you thankful for?
Thank you for visiting me today for
A Dainty Blue Tea!

  2. You have a lovely collection of BLUE TEA TIME china. I love your cup and saucer and your photos are wonderful. So glad you shared at Friends Sharing Tea!

  3. Hello Karen,
    I have this dainty blue too : ) Isn't it paper thin? I love that part.
    Your sugar and creamer, as well as your gorgeous coffee pot look so pretty and fresh. Lovely to share with family and new family... and new things.

  4. What very pretty dainty blue dishes! Your collection of blue china is so beautiful and goes so well together. I am sure your company appreciated all the loveliness. Happy early Canadian Thanksgiving to you!

  5. Hello Karen,
    What pretty blue china you have shared today. I love the Shelley teacup! It is so dainty and I can almost see through a part of it, it is so thin. Your other pieces are lovely too. I'm sure your son's in-laws enjoyed their visit very much with you. Isn't it lovely when our children find the right mates? Happy Thanksgiving, Karen, and thank you for joining me for tea.


  6. Hi Karen, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  7. I love your blue china especially the tea cup. I' m glad for your son' s in law, it' s so beautiful stay with the family!

  8. Dear Karen,
    I have the dainty in purple and mauve. I would love to have the blue one like you have. I gave them all to my mother many years ago when I was a teenager working in a gift store. Unfortunately the blue one broke. They have hefty price tags so treasure yours. I adore your creamer and sugar. Also Shelley? They are the finest and most delicate of all, I think.
    How kind of your new almost family to bring you such fruit. I love the basket handles!!!!
    Best, Ruthie from: http://www.ladybstimefortea.blogspot.com
