A Patterned Tea Time

Welcome Lovely Friends to:

"A Patterned Tea Time"

Today I am in the mood for roses and  flowered patterns.

This teacup has lovely pattern of pink flowers on the palest of pink background.

It was a garage sale find a few years past.

You have seen this flowery favourite of mine before.

Don't you love pretty patterned linens with  flowered prints? 

And pretty flowered patterned china?

I found this sweet linen stand at an Estate sale.  Everything smells so fresh after drying outside.

         There are still some roses at the cottage.

Sometimes the men just have to join in the fun!
(My hubby and eldest son.)

Thank you for joining me today for

"A Patterned Tea Time."

Have a wonderful week!

  1. What a perfect tea party! your linens caught my eye, and of course, the china is lovely.

  2. Oh, I love the teacups! The chocolate looks great too!

  3. Your linens are gorgeous, Karen, as well as your roses! Pretty china too. I especially love the first teacup with the pale pink background although the Crown is beautiful too. We had a gorgeous weekend with such warm temps but the wind was too high for an outdoor tea. Nice to see yours. Thanks for joining me for tea and have a lovely week.


  4. I loved seeing your hubby and son pretending to sip tea! And you sure have a lovely tan! This is a darling posting and so sweetly appointed.

  5. Love your male tea guests! Lol! What a lovely setting! I have wicker in my sunroom. Your sis wonderful! And who can ever have to many floral patterned pieces! Perfect! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  6. Yes, my favorite was the first cup, too, but everything here is so beautiful, with all the lovely china and linen patterns. Your menfolk are good sports, drinking their tea! And the chocolate cake looks delicious.
