Tea time


Hello everyone,
   It is tea time Tuesday at Sandi's again  and I wanted to join in but i didn't have any new tea photos so I hope you don't mind me reposting one of my favorite teas.
I love this big old teapot that came from Reid House antiques in Tyron here on the Island.

the teacups are similar in color but a different pattern.

I love shortcake of any kind!

I hope you enjoy your tea time and can join in the fun at Sandi's Rose Chintz Cottage.

I am off to Halifax with some of my family for a couple of days so I will see you later!

Have a lovely day,

Carolyn

Carolyn, Carolyn, Carolyn!!!! What can I say, m'dear?!!! I am in loooove. Okay, it's getting so now that I can hardly sleep at night waiting to visit your Island.

I am really hoping I can find something like this GORGEOUS teapot to bring back home with me. I have a feeling this 'happy therapy' is just what the doc ordered at this time...

Have a glorious time in Halifax with your family!

Hugs,
Linda

Love the blue tea set and wondered also if you have the recipe for the shortcake? Looks yummy! Beautiful photos, as always ~

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Carolyn, thank you for posting a lovely tea before leaving for your trip to Halifax. Your blue is so pretty and I like shortcake of any kind too. The problem at my place is my hubby prefers the cake while I prefer the biscuit. Oh well, both are a real treat any time. See you when you get back. Have fun!

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Carolyn
I can hardy wait for the strawberries to come in to make strawberry shortcake.
Your china is a pretty pattern and teacups do match nicely.
Hope you have a great time in Halifax.

My first time visit... and I'm swooning. I LOVE your site. I love teaparties. I love that you are Canadian and living on PEI. I've never been (live in AB) but always wanted to when I was in love reading all of L.M. Montgomery's books and journals.

So glad I 'met' you. Don't you just love this blogging world. I'll be back!

Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places....
