An Aqua Tea

                                                           Hello everyone,
      We are certainly having a great summer for enjoying a tea time break in the garden,
  I guess you won't be surprised that it is an aqua theme again. By the way the paint color some of you asked about yesterday is a Behr  paint called Marina Life..

  The pretty chintz teacup came from Winner's a few years ago.

                      I found this pretty china aqua tea cup at a thrift shop last week.
   Don't they all look so pretty together?
     The picnic basket got a coat od Marina Life paint as well. It is not safe to give me a can of paint and a brush! I do love it though.

  Now what kind of tea would you like herbal or Red Rose?

  Today I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.

Thank you all for stopping by for tea!

Herbal with honey please.. I love that minty blue color, just as sweet as can be. Oh and that cross stitch pillow in that one shot.. love it.

Great job on the remake of the bucket Caroyln, very nice and I can see it used for Christmas too.

warm hugs,

Hi Carolyn!
You won't be surprised to know that I have some of those same teacups?! :-) Such a pretteee post again!!!
I always chuckle when watching golf and they describe the "marine layer"...Here, we call it plain ol' FOG!!! Lol My hubby tries to tell me we look so 'young' because of all the fog we get here - otherwise known as 'Oil of da bay'...

Carolyn, I am simply swooning over the aqua! You know it's a favourite colour of mine. Love the teacups and your bucket and teapot look fabulous painted! It's not safe for me to have a can of paint either! I've spent most of my time at the beach this Summer so I haven't been painting as much...Lovely tea! Thanks for joining me.



Oh my, these are some stunning aqua teacups, wow, such loveliness. You got me swooning over this beutiful, femenine and inviting post. Have a nice evening.

Hi Carolyn,
I'm loving all your precious aqua posts. Those teacups are so lovely.


que porcelanas lindas, é difícil escolher a mais bonita.
Sinto falta em percorrer os antiquários e encontrar tesouros como esses.

Fique em paz.

So many beautiful cups. I love roses on tea cups. They aren't that easy to find in this country though. It's mostly coffee cups and it's not quite the same, lol.
Have a nice day.
Love Elzie

Oh! So very pretty!
I thought I was the only one obsessed with vintage china. I have collected tea cups, tea pots and china sets for years.
I have always gone for the pinks and roses (thus the name of my blog & Etsy shop). The last few years I have introduced a lot of aqua. French blue has become one of my favorite colors.
Beautiful post and amazing photos!
Thanks for sharing.
Will visit again soon.
