The 3rd Teapot & Tea Things Tuesday

Welcome to the 3rd,

 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday'!..,


Tea is almost ready. Do make your self comfortable.  The dainty scones are browning up in the oven.  I will put a grand dollop of creme fraiche in the  glass. Let's chat while I set out the dishes. How has your weather been since we last spoke?  Our weather has been so pleasant the last few days.  The sun has been warm and the sky blue, a true blue.  That inspired me to choose my petite blue teapot for this week, to share with you.  What did you use for your inspiration?

I am setting up tea on my luggage table.
I found these matching suitcases at a tag sale a number of years ago.  It didn't seem to have enough surface area so we found a piece of tempered glass to top it.

The tea set was a Christmas present from my son a few years ago.  He was undecided as to what I would like.  I think he figured it out just fine.

A funky martini glass to display creme fraiche centred on a small plate that will present the scones.
Or perhaps for lemon slices for the discerning taste buds.

The plate has been re-created from a china pattern from the Titanic.

Gold and White ~ How regal
The three sisters were found at an estate sale for $5.00 each
How could I resist?
It was challenging to find the right teacups to compliment the busy-ness of the blue floral pattern of the teapot.  The simplicity of the white and gold worked the best.

  7. Hi Pam, I was just re-reading the comment you made on the Spiritual Sundays blog and decided to come pay you a visit. The tea was delightful. Everything was so pretty. The weather is really warming up now here in Arizona. Still not quite to the 100 mark but it will be soon.
    Hope you're having a great week.

  8. Pamela, Your mixing and matching looks great! Love the Titanic reproduction plate and your antique teaset - so pretty. The fleur de lis cups are pretty and go well with those lovely saucers! I also love that little spoon in the martini glass, Pamela! Beautiful teascape today!

  9. I love the Antique Blue by MAXWELL & WILLIAMS ~ That is so lovely!! I must say I was just swooning a bit over your table made with the suitcases! I will be on the hunt for some vintage ones now~ lol...I have a train case or two and love them!~Happy Tuesday, Theresa

  10. Lovely! And here in California it is cold and gloomy today...just perfect for a wonderful tea...and scones...thanks, just what I needed.


  11. What a lovely tea vigenette!!

    I love the table you created out of the suitcases!! And the tempered glass on top was a great idea!!

    Your china is just gorgeous!!


  12. WOW!! just beautiful the suitcases turned table...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  13. Oh I love all the tea cups, but the Stanley tea cup and saucer are my favorite! Gorgeous.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us today.

  14. So pretty and delightful! I love it all. Really love how you have the set up on the vintage suitcases. Be blessed. Cindy

  15. Dear Pam,
    I am so glad you visited my site today - it led me to your site!! All I can say is the name of your blog says it all...a true breath of fresh air! I am in awe over your gorgeous tea items! I am now following your blog and I posted on today's tea party!
    Thank you for the lovely words about my beloved Kitchenette girls - they are truly a talented group of young ladies! I adore them! If you get a chance - peruse my site for past posts about the Kitchenettes' adventures! I am looking forward to visiting with you and the darling Wanda Lee every week!
    Blessings to you - Concetta

  16. Blue and white always looks so elegant;undoubtedly why the Titanic had it commissioned for her. Using the regal gold cups added so much to the ambiance.
    Loved your setting and well - your tea table makes me think that after tea you will be heading off abroad on your Gran Tour. Just move the glass and your all packed & ready to go.
    Got to run myself, don't want you to be late either. Bon Voyage.

  17. I had to laugh when I saw your "table" because I thought of my grandkids and how when they come over I have to take all my glass tabletops and hide them. They are always climbing and knocking things over!! Very pretty teapot--love it. Charming teacups!
