20th, 'Tea Pot And Tea Things Tuesday'

Welcome to the 20th, 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday!

"I've learned that true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance."

I am so delighted to join in the fun this week.  Do I dare say that the time went by so quickly last week that I was unable to keep track of time and Tuesday came and went without me realizing.

I just walked in the door thirty minutes ago, arriving back home from the east coast.  We spent the week visiting my dear friend Wanda Lee  (Silken Purse & Plumed Pen)and her husband and helping my daughter get settled with them as she prepares to start a new degree at university.  But before unpacking I wanted to say I missed all of you and I will be posting for Tuesday, however it will be after work tomorrow. I am anticipating a very enchanting tea party, indeed.

Blessings 'til then.  Pam

Is  It  Ever  Too  Late  for  Tea?

I hope not.  Catching up and unpacking has taken much longer than I anticipated.  I really need a cup of hot, flavourful tea to revive me. I invite you to put your tasks aside for a moment and join me for a cuppa.

China to celebrate the coming of Autumn and the bounty God has blessed us with.

A cup for you and a cup for me

This was from Kelita's mother's collection

This is from my mother's collection

Purchased at an estate sale last summer
Hand painted

Love the detail

Each side of the dish is different

I wonder who this was?
What was her life like?

Cornflower cream and sugar compliment so much

A touch of Autumn with yellow and orange sugar crystals
added to granulated sugar

A set of six matching plates from dear Gladys

My faithful white teapot with a touch of whimsy
I attached this brooch from my mother's collection with a clear elastic

Tea is served
