Calling all Tea Time Lovers




               Hello everyone,

          I hope your week is going well.
    We are enjoying a touch of
      spring weather here the past
couple of days.

      Many of you probably know
               that I enjoy my tea time and have 
    a rather large collection of
   teapots and teacups etc. so
          today let's enjoy afternoon tea.

            A Sadler teapot with a
              similar teacup and pretty
            tulips.....what more do
we need!


                         Well, maybe some sweet treats
  would be good!

          Take your pick of teacups.

                                                                        Soft and pretty




                                                                  How about a pretty cookie.?            


             A chintz teapot....I have
                     been asked how many teapots
                   I have and the answer is too
                         many to count! Many have been
                      gifted to me over the years and
        I love them all! 

              I so love a beautiful bouquet
  of tulips...don't you?




            More teacups and tulips,
        white ones this time.

                                  Lots of lace and linens.

                                                                Hope you enjoyed tea time with me
                                                                         today. I have more to share but
                                                                         that will be another day soon!

                                                                                   Enjoy your day!

                                                                                                Carolyn

Such pretty dishes and beautiful tulips. We are so in need of colour at this time of year. I'm glad I stopped by.

Dear Carolyn:
It won't be long and your own tulips will be blooming! Lovely! Love the Sadler!

Always so nice to stop by for tea with you, Carolyn. I try to take a "tea break" in the afternoon, and seeing your lovely settings, while I'm enjoying a sip, really gives me pleasure!

All the colors are so soft and pretty. Love the mixture of china, linens and tulips.

How beautiful Carolyn! Such a lovely collection of pink teacups! Teacups are so hard to find here where I live so I always enjoy seeing them on all of my tea bloggers posts.
Happy Thursday!

I scrolled up and down, I really enjoyed to see all those lovely soft colored romantic teapots and cups, together with that beautiful bunch of mixed tulips it makes the perfect teatime.

Meine Liebe, wunderschön alles in weiß und rosa - wie ich es so sehr mag! Hier meldet sich immer wieder der Winter und die Sonne scheint Urlaub zu haben, leider! Einen feinen tag und herzliche Grüße aus Deutschland von

oh did we enjoy that!!! What a delightful way to spend the morning...today I have a cup of Valentine tea (chocolate, rose petals and strawberries) while we visited...I'd say it was the perfect cup to choose for such a lovely post!
Have a lovely day!

Valentines Day is one of my favs! What lovely tulips ...I adore tulips! Love your little heart-shaped plate, with the cookies... and all of your pretty teacups too.

What fun it is to be a girl! (Even if we are antique little girls!) I know you are a grandmother and so am I, and this time of our lives is filled with more time to enjoy life to its fullest! I am thankful for all of my blessings!

My husband is one of my biggest blessings...and he lets me surround myself with pretty things. We love to go antiquing together. He is a collector too...and really has even more "stuff" than I do. However, during our recent move where we downsized, we find ourselves needing to let go of something if we get new things so that we have enough room! Quite a challenge!

I trust you had a Happy Valentines Day...and I imagine you are looking so forward to springtime...as am I!

Blessings,
