43rd Tea Pot and Tea Things Tuesday, marmalade recipe

Welcome to...

43rd  Tea Pot and Tea Things Tuesday

Treat your friends as you do your pictures,
and place them in their best light.

Jennie Jerome Churchill

A warm welcome to all

The sun was shining Sunday morning when I awoke, a nice change to be sure!  I decided to take the opportunity to photograph my tea table.  

My tea table is small because our home is staged for selling

A teacup from my mom's collection

Hand made pearl necklace

Antique pearl brooch 

I must retire these items.
The cupcake is a bath bomb.
The chocolate bon bon holds lip loss.
So cute!
We'll be serving scones and marmalade.

The human spirit is the lamp of the LORD that sheds light on one’s inmost being.

This beautiful plant does well in the hot summer
and adapts to indoors in the autumn



Wash and clean oranges, chop (remove pits if any)

Weigh oranges and add equal weight of sugar

Place in a large pot (if the fruit is dry add a little water),

Boil rapidly then reduce heat a little (be careful or it will boil over- big sticky mess)

Skim off rising scum

Drop small amount to test on a cold plate until jam gels

Remove from heat and when cooled a little fill,  *prepared jars 


Always ensure that the jars are clean, preheated and standing on wooden surface during filling.

Allow to stand and cool a little before closing securely.

~ I encourage you to stop by and savour another cup of tea while you enjoy her pretty vignettes.

The more the fun!

We don't want to miss a single teacup or teapot!

  1. Your tea things and your photos of them are just stunning. I love the pearls pouring out into the cup. Amazing!
    Thanks so much for hosting.
    xo bj

  2. Beautiful tea things and beautiful photos, Pam. Very creatively done!...Christine

  3. Dearest Pam,

    ~ Lovely to talk to you once again so soon;(no matter the circumstances and how briefly we spoke tonight)..,

    ..,Somewhat sadly, I am loathe to inform you that in essence: because Mr. Linky was accidentally erased twice; and we've all been there.., uugh!

    Nonetheless, if you want to re post the links; (the good news is that you indeed may do so Pam)!

    Yet, as I can attest to from past experience, (having had to personally had to do so many times in the past when we were not able to post in-sync).., It unfortunately requires you're needing to go to each blog in turn as you'll find thm posted on my blogs and then hand, re-posting in thier info., one by one, if you wish to recapture all of the 'live', Mr. Linky links..,(It's a tad complicated).

    One a much brighter note, have a marvelous week with Kristina; everything is beyond delightfully charming and beautiful Pam!Love those pearls, the brooch and the sugar!

    Thanks for co-hosting; it's always a joy!

    Hugs and God bless, WL.

  4. I have just Linked up my tea time post Pam. I am so happy to be joining in with you-it's been too long!

    I like your photos very much. The sun beaming in always adds that special touch. I also like the pearls being poured out of the beautiful teapot.

    Thank you for the the marmalade recipe. Sounds and looks very yummy-licious!. Marmalade always reminds me of Paddington Bear.


  9. Love your tea table! It is amazing how lovely sunlight makes things - your teacup is gorgeous! I know what it is like to stage a house to sell - I hope all goes well for you!
    God Bless<

  10. Oh my your photos are exceptionally pretty this week...I love the handmade pearl necklace dripping from the teapot, so creative.

    There is no time for tea here this week as the garden is calling to me to plant, plant, plant...but this means very soon I can start having tea surrounded by flowers :)

    Have a wonderful blessed week

    Best wishes on selling your home.

  12. You always do a marvelous job adding the extraordinary to your setting - the pearl necklace is fantastic - I am going to have to look for that dwarf orange tree - the marmalade sounds scrumptious! Thank you for joining A Return to Loveliness - you've made it all the more special!

  13. Sharing a tea with you is always a pleasure

  14. Your tea table is nicely staged itself - maybe it could add to the appeal of your home for sale?
