Tea for Two!

Welcome to our little sunroom where we can enjoy tea for the two of us.

This pretty teacup is hand painted.

I love this candle in it's pretty toile box-you may have noticed I have a passion for toile!

These lovely hyacinths are definitely giving the sunroom a lovely fragrance!

I made a blueberry sour cream coffee cake- help yourself before I eat it all!

I hope you enjoyed our litle tea party! I am joining in again with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage Inspirations Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses and Lady Katherine for their tea parties- so go and have another cuppa over there!

Thank you for visiting,


Enjoy your day!

Hi Carolyn!

I had to stop by tonight for a dose of beauty on Carolyn can deliver!

Of course I wasn't disappointed! Your images and pretties are always a breath of fresh air, especially on this almost spring day.

Love it all!

Hi Carolyn! Oh, yes, I'll have a cup of tea and you can choose which cup! Everything is so lovely! You do have the most beautiful dishes!
Be a sweetie,

Sooooo beautiful Carolyn! I adore the teacup with the violets. I'm working now on a digital scrapbook set with strawberries and violets. Your photos are exquisite. ♥

Carolyn, I love to stop by here. You always share such lovely things. I'd love a cup of tea and a bite of that coffee cake. Love the hyacinths!

The tea table is so perfect! The blues and purples are just beautiful and I can just smell the perfume of hyacinths! Thanks for always posting something of beauty and sharing your wonderful collections with us!

I have a teacup that looks just like yours with the violets. Needless to say, I have a small collection of violet china pieces.

I love the little doily under each cup. The blueberry coffeecake looks so delicious. What a wonderful way to start your day or have a mid-afternoon snack.

Just lovely!

Morning Carolyn, I will pop over shortly for afternoon tea, it all looks so divine. ( If only it was that easy to get together!)

Thank you for sharing.

Have a great day, Jackie in UK.

Hello Cathrin,

Your dish is unique, enchanted to see the pretty violet. You need definitely a lot of cabinets for your beautiful china.

Cordial greetings Melontha

Good morning Carolyn,
Your tea is lovely today! Beautiful blue china, and the toile candle is a nice touch. The blueberry coffee cake was delicious and the flowers exquisite! Thank you, for a lovely presentation and for joining me once again for Tea Time. Hope you have a splendid day.


essemia said...

Beautiful pictures as always. I wouldn't mind having a cup of tea and a piece of that cake at all, lol.

And the former post is just awesome. That room gives me a wish to have and have!

Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

Sherry said...

All you teacups are beautiful, but that little chintz ware teacup with the violets stole my heart. How adorable shy violets are.:)

Lavender Cottage said...

Hi Carolyn
I just love the cup and saucer with the blue cornflowers - that would be my choice.
You and I seem to bake the same type of goodies for tea - my favourite to serve is also a blueberry buckle or coffee cake made with sour cream.
I'll have to settle for a very small piece of yours for now though. :-)

DesignTies said...

What a beautiful and yummy-looking post :-) Your teacups are so pretty, and your blueberry sour scream coffee cake.... YUM!!

I can almost smell the lovely scent of your purple hyacinths... spring is almost here!! :-)


Rhondi said...

Hyacinths, violets, cornflowers, blueberry coffee cake and tea with you. What a treat! I am coveting that tea cup with the blue cornflowers. Thanks for inviting me for tea and for joining the tea party.
Hugs, Rhondi
