A Blue & White Transferware Tea

Hello everyone,

I am back again with an afternoon
tea in our library.

My tea time tray

Sticky date pudding with
toffee sauce is a delicious
treat at Christmas time.

                                             I lucked in to seven of these
                                             beautiful Spode Italian teacups
                                             at a local thrift store recently.

Blue and white transferware
is one of my favorites.


I hope you enjoyed joining
me for tea today.

Thanks for popping in!

Take care,

Dearest Carolyn,
Such expert photos taken of your yummy looking sticky date pudding with toffee sauce on blue and white transferware china with tea.
The only blue white we got is the one from my Mother-in-law:
Enjoy these cozy afternoon and evenings at this time of the year!

So beautiful! What a special find in those Spode teacups. The date pudding looks amazing!

Thank you for inviting us to have tea in your library. Although I like very much tea I would not taste your mouthwattering pudding because I banished quick-sugar from my diet.

Your wintry banner creates an ideal atmosphere.

Oh I would love to share that sticky date pudding with toffee sauce! Maybe one of these days could you post the recipe? It looks devine! The blue and white china is so so pretty. My mom collected it and loved it. Growing up, I always thought there was only ONE transferware pattern in blue. I didn't realize, until many many years later, that there are all colors. I love them all! I still have some of her plates. Have a lovely Christmas! Marilyn
