Soft and Romantic Tea Time



Hello everyone,
      Hope you all had a lovely weekend once again. We enjoyed some time with our family and some relaxing time at home. It was a bit cold here but oddly enough it is going to rain tomorrow.
  I have some soft and romantic photos of my English Sadler teaset to share today.
These teacups co-ordinate very well with the tea set.

I have been playing at bit with my camera again.

The creamer and sugar bowl are Sadler as well.



I have no homemade treats today so how about some frozen mango yogurt?
I like this dried rose as much as when it was fresh from the store.
Hope you enjoyed a soft and romantic tea today.

I am joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage today for her second year tea time Anniversary and the theme today is roses.

Have a wonderful day!

Carolyn

Pink roses on any china is my favorite. Beautiful tea set.

Elzie said...

Just a lovely set. The roses are so cute and the tea pot is beautiful.
Dried roses are favorites here too. I had lots of them but had to throw them away as they got so dirty.
Here we got snow this weekend and tonight we have under 20F here. Not my favorite weather!!
Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

Such a pretty set, Carolyn! The teacups do work very well with it. We have had some clouds and rain here for the past few days {the sun peeked out for a moment this morning, then was gone}. I anticipate some hot chocolate this afternoon!

I like this china pattern - very dainty. The frozen yogurt looks so yummy and I'm trying to stay away from extra sweets! Oh dear. Now I want a dish of vanilla ice cream.

So beautiful and soft. It's hard to believe that those cups aren't the match to the tea set. They go perfectly.

Please come for a visit.I have a GIVE AWAY going on that you might be interested in.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Thank you Carolyn for sharing your pretty Sadler teapot. The cups are a very good match and one would think they were a set.
The dried rose is beautiful! I always try to dry mine too. Some turn out well while others do not.

I want to thank you for joining me for tea these past two years. Your faithful participation has brought us all much joy and left us craving for more of your gorgeous and romantic photos. You do have a love affair with the camera, my friend!

Blessings,
Sandi

Very nice photos, teacups, camera angles and mosaic!

What a wonderful memory this brought back. I gave my mother that teapot and creamer/sugar thirty years ago. Not sure where it ended it up. But I so loved it.

Beth said...

Your china is very beautiful and your pictures look great. You have a way with your camera...it makes the china look like I can reach out and pick it up! I enjoyed stopping by for tea time.

Nette said...

You certainly have an eye for the beautiful & romantic style. Your pictures are wonderful and I sometimes forget that I am not able to enlarge the pictures in the right hand border even though they invite to "more". Have a wonderful week.

Rachel said...

Oh, Carolyn! You have so inspired me! Now that I have seen your photo of the mango sorbet, I am going to have to get out my great-grandmother's pink depression glass and have tea on the lawn! What a treat to look forward to!

Hi Carolyn
I always look forward to joining you for tea each week and it was from your blog that I found Sandi's.
Your photos always have an essence of romance whether showing a tea table or your beautiful home.

Beverly said...

Frozen mango yogurt is on my list of favorites, and I would so enjoy sharing it with you in this lovely setting.

Diana (Apple pie, love for details) said...

Lovely!
Thank you for dreaming...

BECKY said...

Hi Carolyn, I'm here via Susan's blog, at Writing Straight from the Heart. When I saw your teapot on her blog list, I just HAD to pop over. I have that exact one! I few years ago, I began collecting teapots. As with any of my "collections," I usually stop at a small number because my interests are so varied! I have a small collection of musical snow globes, teapots and tea cups, antique plates, various statues of people holding books, S&P Shakers, etc! Your blog is just beautiful. I love all things shabby chic, pink and green, white, etc!

Madelief said...

What a pretty tea set this is Carolyn! I have two teapots by Sadler as well. They make such lovely teapots and cups. How is your garden doing? Can you already see some bulbs coming up?

Happy day!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

Your teapot is so very beautiful and it is hard to imagine that the teapot and cups are not really a set...they are perfect together. Your photos are always so lovely and softly romantic and surely inviting for a cup of tea. Beautiful!
As you can see, I am scrolling down and catching up on your lovely posts. I have been working on a project and have not had a chance to catch-up until now. I am hoping to finally be able to post by Sunday night or Monday morning...I just need more hours in the day! It is always such a pleasure to visit you for a cup of tea. Thank you!
