Cozy Winter White Tea

                                                                    ~ Welcome~
                              With the cold days of winter still upon us I am enjoying having tea
                               by the kitchen bay window that overlooks our snow covered garden.
                                              I have the table set for two so come and join me.
Pecan butterballs......again!

                                                            cranberry orange scones
                                                        I love these beautiful roses.

                                                       Some whipped cream for your scones with jam.

                     From the reports I am hearing, I think much of North America has
                                been getting some real wintry weather lately so what could be nicer
                                then enjoying afternoon tea while admiring the beauty of winter
                                through the window.

On another note someone wrote to ask me where they might find this vintage teapot
but it has no markings on it and I bought it a local antique shop and have no info on
it. Do any of you have any idea on where to find another one online?     

I am joining Bernideen's Tea Time Blog for Friends Sharing Tea today
and My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.               

                                                               Thank you for your visit!

What a gorgeous, gorgeous post! I had to pin your photos to my Time for Tea board. (I'm on Pinterest under ThePinkHome.) Thanks so much for brightening my day. :)

Oh, I can think of nothing nicer than sitting there by the window, eating your goodies, and having a chat.

Susan said...

Sounds and looks wonderful, Carolyn. I'd love to try one of your scones with the cream. Yum! Susan

Bernideen said...

Thank you Carolyn for linking to Friends Sharing Tea. My guess is that is a little personal Chocolate Pot (short spout) and doesn't it look Bavarian? Your table is lovely and that view is breathtaking. Your baked goods are always impressive!

Gorgeous Carolyn. I love everything! The pecan cookies are wonderful with the white, but I love the blue at the end best!

Your white tea is so romantic!
A cup of warm tea at home and this cold winter is just outdoors.

Carolyn, your white tea is lovely and I like your tiered stand. That chocolate pot is adorable! I'm going to have to bake scones one of these days for I'm been craving them lately. Stay cozy!

Hello Carolyn,
I so enjoyed having tea with you and looking out of the kitchen window, even at all that snow. It has been plenty in the last little while and I have found many birds are not able to get to their food as easily as before. Lovely place setting for tea and your orange and cranberry scones look delectable, and the cream scrumptious. Thanks for having tea

Betty said...

Beautiful table setting and I love the gorgeous teapot.
I would love to share tea and scones with you. Looks like a Cornish cream tea.
Keep warm,
Betty, in a very hot Melbourne.

I'd loooove to, Carolyn! But you are a bit far away! .... or I am (in Denmark Scandinavia). However your pictures, which are as beautiful as ever, inspire me. Therefore, next week when winter will finally arrive here with snow and cold, I shall invite my neighbours for a White Tea in front of the big window of my nursery and the table set with white porcelaine and a white tablecloth embroidered by my grandmother.
Je vous remercie pour l'annè 2013 et vous souhaite une Bonne et Joyeuse Annè 2014

love the soft, soothing colors in this post. the roses with the pine are so pretty.

Pretty wonderful setup you've got there. The only thing that's going to invigorate it is new utensils, fresh ingredients, or maybe tea one hasn't tried yet. Every kind of tea leads to their own arrangements, so enjoy tea time this 2014. Stay healthy!
