Tea and Roses

Welcome Teacup Lovers To
"Tea and Roses"

Today I am being adventuresome and choosing not my usual pinks but china with yellow and shades of blue.  This Royal Albert teacup is a pale coral with yellow roses.  (The teapot behind is a miniature Sadler). 

The white roses from the cottage garden look almost a creamy white with the yellow pillow behind it. 

The other teacup is identical except that it's yellow roses are on a blue background.  

This weekend I found this wee pale turquoise vintage smoker's table at an antique shop in Lynden.  I loved it's cottage-like colour!  I think that it may be a perfect place to store some teacups!  Lol!
It was $24.99.

I found some store bought s'more cookies for us.

The weather has been just beautiful at the cottage.

Hope your days are sunny too!

  1. LOVE your colors! But then I love anything blue! I especially like the blue blushed teacup. Your setting is lovely! Perfect under the tree with vintage goodies! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  2. Lovely cottage teascape! I love the shape of the RA teacup and the roses. You can't beat roses. The Sadler teapot is lovely, too. You found a great way to store your teacups! Happy Tea Day!

  3. Karen, your roses are simply scrumptious! I love how they look in the blue pitcher propped in front of the yellow cushion. I have that same RA yellow rose teacup only with a white background. The blue is so pretty! That little cabinet you found would be ideal for storing more teacups. Nice find! Thank you for coming to tea and enjoy your day.


  4. What a darling cabinet with the pale turquoise color. The cottage garden is the perfect spot for tea. The sweet roses teacups and saucers have a delicate pattern. Thanks for sharing this pretty tea time and have a great week!


  5. What a lovely setting for your tea, Karen. Your new vintage find looks charming for your tea table. Oh, how I'd love to share some tea with you at this pretty spot. A s'more cookie sounds wonderful, too.

  6. You've set up a pretty table with roses in the shade of your tree for us this week. We inherited my husband's grandfather's smoking table similar to yours but it had been painted a glossy red. We stripped it down to the bare wood and it looks much better now, but yours is already a pleasing colour.

  7. What a lovely find! I love your china and you teatime is always gorgeous

  8. What a lovely outdoor tea! Your landscape is just beautiful! Love your new table, perfect for holding your teacups and for tea's! Such pretty china, love the yellow roses. I always look forward to your weekly teas!

  9. A lovely setting for your tea this week. The table is just right for holding your tea.

  10. I love the little smokers' table and would have snatched it up myself if I'd seen it. It looks perfect for storing teacups. The weather around our state has been amazing this past week and I can hardly bring myself indoors during daylight hours because we know we seldom get such ideal weather for sipping our tea outdoors ! What a lovely tea setting.

  11. What lovely roses and rosy tea cups you have. It is so nice to meet you at Tuesday Cuppa Tea.
