Pretty Paragon for Tea Time

Welcome Lovely Tea Friends!

Today I wanted to share some of my pretty Paragon teacups.  

The pattern is "Tapestry Rose".

Yesterday I tried a new Strawberry Muffin recipe.

Thankfully there are enough left for our Tea Time today. 
(See the recipe below.)  

The teapots are both Sadlers.

Thank you so much for your visit today!

  1. You have created a most lovely teatime with those gorgeous teacups and teapots!

    Thank you for the recipe - I am in a baking mood and may need to try them! I will have to use a different berry though b/c my husband is allergic to strawberries, can you even believe that? Can you imagine the yumminess he has to miss out on?????????

    Have a blessed and wonderful week, Karen!

  2. I've never met a Paragon teacup that I didn't like. Thank you for sharing these beauties, Karen!

  3. Wow!!!! Such romantic. I always dream when i see your porcelain and your beautiful home

  4. The Tapestry Rose pattern is so pretty, Karen, and does have that tapestry look to romantic! I wish I could have a cup of tea and a muffin with you today.

  5. Pretty tea-scape! Love your Paragon teacups -- roses everywhere and I love the inside rim of the cups. Pretty Sadler teapots. Thank you for the strawberry muffins ... just in time for fresh, garden grown strawberries! Happy Tea Day!

  6. What a pretty tea time, Karen! I am in love with the Sadler aqua teapot! Every time I see it, I swoon. The Tapestry Rose pattern is lovely and your strawberry muffins look just wonderful. I think I have made pretty much everything there is to make with berries, except muffins. I must try your recipe. I would love to join you for tea. Thank you for sharing and linking and have a beautiful day, Karen.


  7. Dear Karen'
    Your strawberry muffins look great and by now have been eaten? I often bake and usually freeze some for "later" which seems to come fairly soon! I love your Paragon teacups which were "fit for the Queen Karen"! Thanks for sharing and linking!

  8. I adore the turquoise teapot! Goes perfect with my turquoise kitchen and dining room!

  9. Karen, lovely things! I've never seen a pattern with that tapestry effect -- beautiful! The muffins sound, and look, delightful.

  10. I do love Tapestry Rose, but you don't see it much. Such a gorgeous table! And the strawberry muffins sound delicious! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
