Green Tea

Hello everyone,
      I hope you are all doing well and enjoying these last days of summer.I am thrilled to be having lovely weather here the past few weeks with the promise of a beautiful fall.
   It is Tea Time today over at Sandi's so I am joining in with my 'green tea'. 
I love the soft color of this tea cup that I found at a thrift shop a few weeks ago.
Another thrift store find-they are part of my' cottage' collection. 

There are lots of beautiful flowers in the garden for bouquets and I love this vintage coffee pot that I used as a vase today. I love to spend some time on a lazy day enjoying my large collection of Victoria magazines. They are one of my favorite sources of inspiration.

Well, that is my 'green tea' for Tea Time Tuesday at Rose Chintz Cottage but there will be lots of lovely teas over there!

Today I am also joining in A Delightsome Life for Kathy's Victoria Return to Loveliness party where you can meet other Victoria fans.

 I am thinking of all the children starting back to school today and hoping they will all have a good year.

Take care,

Salep içeceğini duydunuz mu bilmiyorum ama Türkiye de özellekle kış akşamları içilir sıcak sıcak, üzeri tarçınlı falan mis gibi :)

bu fincanlarla da ne güzel içilirdi doğrusu :)


I love your green cups and the sweet ones with flowers, adorable! I specially, love, love, your green tea pot with the flowers! I'd love to be there for green tea and than later invite you for some at my place with pie, so see you later! Lots of hugs.

Hi Carolyn,
Love your 'green tea' and believe it or not, I have that same green teapot in your first photo. I picked it up earlier this summer and I'm sharing it in next week's post. I already have it prepared. We do seem to like the same things, don't we? Thanks for joining me, my friend.

Carolyn, good night!

I follow your blog whenever I can. And my day gets better as I see your photos, I am delighted with everything you do and prepare. When preparing tea and invites us to feel in your garden following his tea. It is a dream. I am of Macaé, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I love crafts and porcelain.

Type in a translator, I'm sorry.

Thanks for everything.

Hi Carolyn, Love!Love! the colour of the tea cups and pot. Green is my favourite colour, I love it so much all the rooms in my house are different shades of green.

Hi Carolyn
I like all your shades of green for tea today and a cottage collection sounds delightful.

Love your tea post. I used to have a blue set like your green find, I think it's English Johnson. I love that soft shabby chic green,so soft and pretty.x

Kathy said...

I love every shade of color God has created - but green has always held a special place in my heart. My dad would tell me that it was my Irish heritage - my heart gets full when I see sweeping, rolling green fields. The shades of green in your coffeepot and teacups are perfect. When I saw your lovely teacups and read you'd found them in a thrift store, the quote from Forrest Gump came to mind - "life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you will get". I love finding treasures in thrift stores. Thank you Carolyn for sharing your beautiful post with A Return to Loveliness!
God Bless,
