My 15th Tea Time Tuesday & Teacup and Tea Things Tuesday

Hi everyone...how is your week so far? Mine has been busy at work and challenging, too :) :) It's Tuesday and that means tea ;) :) :)  I shared this photo with you a week or two ago. I love tea and I tried this Tazo "Passion" tea that was sent to me by my friend Linda at Prairie Flower Farm :) :) It was really good and was just perfect for an evening in front of the tv.


Then there are the kinds of tea that you wish you could have every day...like this...or a Victorian tea or something fancy and beautiful because we're ladies and we deserve it ;) :) Besides that, I've always LOVED pink...next to red of course :)


My grandmother would always serve tea with her wedding china. I always felt so special and grown-up while sharing tea. We'd share stories and talk about life etc...plus, the preparation of tea was fun too. I'd watch her bake some goodies or buy them...didn't matter. I just had fun spending time with her :)


...then there's the Daddy version of tea...hee hee hee...we bought these on a lark one day in the store. They are only $0.99 and we LOVED the name..so we bought them. Now whenever I ask Dad if he wants tea, this is what he goes for. It's not exactly what I had in mind, but that's okay :) :) :) I did manage to get him to drink from an actual tea cup once. It had soda pop. Next time, I'll make sure and take a photo of it :) :) :)



Stay tuned on Wednesday because I'll be showing off some yard sale finds....there's some pink in tomorrows post ;) :) :) That's the news from Oregon. Love and hugs, Heather :)

Hi Heather,
what a great idea to match a cup with a depression saucer. This look really charming. You own a lot of nice antique items and the look beautiful at your tea table. And Daddys version is also very nice. Love the relief on it. Thank you so much for sharing this all.
Greetings, Johanna

Good morning Heather :) Still love that pretty table you set with all the pink pretties, and truly love that white Tea set; love all the details on it. I have to confess, I much rather like the tea your father likes, as I prefer drinking Iced cold Tea over hot tea any day! Raspberry tea is my favorite :)

Wishing you a lovely Tea Tuesday my friend!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Lovely sets!!I love colour but the white set your dad hose is so adaptable to other colour schemes. At least he chose a prett set.
Pink depression glass is so elegant.
I appreciate you taking the time to stop infor tea and share your treasures.
