Two Gifts for Tea Time

It's a Sunny November Day!

My sweet friend Dawn gifted me with this beautiful Fenton vase this week for driving her to her doctor's appointment.  She found it at our local Salvation Army.

My son and daughter-in-law gifted me with these carnations for babysitting their wee girl and also for having them for a family dinner.  Afterwards we watched the U.S. Election together.

I just can't believe the week is nearly over and 
I must apologize for neglecting to link up to tea parties this week and visiting my friend's pretty blogspots.

  I've been busy....  looking after my darling grand daughter for twelve hours Tuesday  and  I can't complain but I must admit I was tired even though my daughter and hubby were there to help. I guess I don't have as much energy as I used to. Lol.

My grand daughter is very busy and while I was trying to get her down for a nap she even said to me, "Busy, busy Baby!"  She's 21 months old.  

The teapot I am sharing again is a Sadler cube.  One of my favourites.  (I think all of my teapots are my favourites.)

I have had this pale pink teacup for as long as I can remember.  It was once my dear mother's.

Are you keeping busy too?

Thank you for your visit today Tea Friends!

  1. I think I agree with you, Karen, that all of our teapots and teacups are our favorites, each in their own way, just like our children. We love and admire them for their own special qualities. Watching those little ones is a joy, but yes, tiring, too. I love the comment that your sweet granddaughter said! Happy tea time, Karen!

  2. Dear Karen;
    What a wonderful vase with a ruffle around it! I love the milk glass vases because they cover up the uneven stems! Ha! Your Sadler is wonderful and the coffee table looks darling. I am loving my slower retirement pace as I agree - energy is non negotiable when one has to go to work.

  3. I really like that teapot. Yes, keeping grandkids/great grandkids is a tiring job.

  4. Hi Karen,
    Such a lovely setting, with the pretty sofa in the background! Your vase and the teapot and teacup are all very pretty. Glad you had fun with your granddaughter! Even though you were a little tired. :)

  5. Me again, this is a test, I have changed my email that I blog with to see if it fixes the problem of you all not getting your comments via email from me. Let me know if you get this on your email.
    Thanks Karen,

  6. Okay, one more time. Hopefully this works! Let me know if you get this email. ;)

  7. I always enjoy seeing your Sadler teapots! Time flies when you're having fun!

  8. Happy Pink Saturday, Karen. Thank you for joining us, and thank you for always making Pink Saturday special.

    I was thinking that was one of my favorite teapots, too. It is gorgeous. I know you had fun with your granddaughter. It is good we have our children when we are still young and energetic enough to keep up with them.♥

  9. The teacup, the vase, the teapot are so lovely. I like very much the setting and your your home is always so cozy
    Hugs Alessandra

  10. Gorgeous teapot, Karen! I love Sadler! Your pale pink teacup is lovely and the vase is special having come from your friend. A white vase is so versatile because it will go with anything and I love the hobnail glass. You always set a pretty table. Hope your week is going well, dear Karen.
