Welcome to the 7th,
Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday
Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday
God loves each of us as if there were
only one of us.
I am constantly amazed by the delicate, intricate designs of the flowers in nature. How many different hues of color on each petal. What a miracle each and every plant is! be it prolific or rare, each with its own unique fragrance and qualities. Just like us. How incredibly awesome God's imagination must be!
So this tea is to honour the gardeners in our midst. Those of you who have a passion for all things living and green, outdoors and in. Those compassionate souls who nurture seedlings and cuttings; water, fertilize and tug out the weeds with determination, from the damp cool days of spring to the dog days of summer. To you I want to say thank you. Thank you for the multi coloured gardens that speak to my soul. Thank you for being such great stewards of God's paint brushes and assisting the master in creating such awe inspiring splendor. I savor the stimulus it gives my senses in sight, smell and wellbeing as I walk by your tended gardens. It is a gift you share with those looking over your fences and this is my note of appreciation.
And so I was inspired to choose tea treasures with delicate flowers from my china cabinet to share with you, this week. I do hope you have a moment to sit, chat and rest over a cup of tea. Warm scones from the oven, butter and fresh strawberry rhubarb jam .
Simple and simlpy delicious, because I am sharing them with such good friends. You can tell me how your garden is growing.
The table is being set...
My mom always had an embroidery project
on the go. Don't you agree, she did beautiful work.
I look forward to showing more of them in future posts.
I felt the need for an all white teapot.
I thought it wouldn't distract from the other floral china.
I am sure it will be used for many other occasions.
Cornflower cream and sugar,
just like my Aunt Orpha's.
Depression glass dish for either
lemon slices or rose-shaped butter pats.
Cake stand for the scones and
a creamer with a spoon for the jam.
Which one would you like?
Or maybe one of these?
Some how all colours go together in a garden.
My friend Edith made these before she moved away.
How I miss Edith and her creative spirit.
Three or four on top of white sugar cubes add a
sweet touch of colour.
Just fo fun.
It has been a pleasure to spend time with you. Always feel so honoured when my friends take the time to drop in. Hope you feel refreshed and ready to resume your projects in the garden.
Wanda and I would love to know who has dropped in.
Please sign in the guest book with a comment. We are excited to see what your favorite tea treasure is this week.
Luke 12:27 (NIV)
"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
Luke 12:27 (The Message)
25-28"Has anyone by fussing before the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? If fussing can't even do that, why fuss at all? Walk into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They don't fuss with their appearance—but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. If God gives such attention to the wildflowers, most of them never even seen, don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you?
I look forward to seeing your creative adventures in pictures this week. I may see you at the following blogs.
I will also be joining the other tea ladies this week for, 'Tuesday And Wednesday Teatime In Blogland', at:
