Lady Pamela's Tea Parlor

Monday, May 24, 2010


Welcome kind friends to the 4th,

 I am so glad that you stopped by.  Find a comfy chair in the garden while I pour the tea and place some sweet treats on a pretty plate.

Wanda and I want to thank you all for your kind words and your beautiful contributions the last few weeks.  I have been humbled and inspired by each of your table settings, precious tea treasures and kind comments. It is wonderful to hear the sweet memories that some of you have shared surrounding your china.

I look forward to seeing your creative adventures in pictures this week.

I was inspired by the sunshine that we enjoyed this weekend and chose yellow to inspire my post. ( See Friday's post..."Two days of sun and I don't have to wear 2 layers of clothes, it was a fantastic weekend. If I have spent time with family and friends it was the best weekend".)

There aren't any special memories that I can recall connected to these cups.  I think they have come from at least 3 different family members. It's not where they came from that unites them but what they have in common (how they compliment each other.) I try to think the same way about family and friends. Its not what family we were born into but the relationships we cultivate between each of us and the way we inspire each other .

Vingette in Yellow

Bluebird of Happiness, perhaps?

I love butterflies!

Four lovely teacups




A yellow rose for friendship

"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."

Ecclesiastes 4: 9,10

"A friend is one who strengthens you with prayers, blesses you with love and encourages you with hope."

If you have a moment to leave a comment I will reply as soon as I can.  I am glad you stopped by. I may see you at the following blogs.

  16. Hello there once again,

    II had posted a slightly lengthier comment earlier yet I hit a wrong button, and as happens occasionally, it went 'poof')..,Oh well!.., C'est la vie!

    ..,I had planned to come back later to mention once again that 'I gasped with delight' when I saw your delightful bird chintz, yellow teacups and photographic artistry Pam!


    I want your opinion Pamela, on the beginning of a new whimsical series of my 'fanciful, digitsl art teapots'; when you get a moment kindly pop over and post a wee comment and let me know what you think?~ I also have a whole series of 'just shoes' to share a bit a later in the week as well..,

    Thanks for co-hosting yet another delightful 'Teapost And Tea Things Tuesday' my dear friend and have a marvelous week!(Alas I had commputer problem and could not post my blossom pictures)..,

    Cheers from Wanda Lee

  17. Oh how I love your teacups! I collect them and yours are just beautiful!


  18. I loved these. They made me think so much of my Grandmother. She had a collection much like these and as a little girl I always thought they were so beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Lori L

  19. I love the pretty tea cups, they are so delicate and lovely, what a wonderful collection you have and thanks for sharing.

  21. These are just really pretty and cheery! Wonderfully pretty and clear photos!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Love, Katy Noelle

  22. Such a lovely post today. I have a thing for tea cups too. They are a reminder of a calmer more romantic time. A lovely life with tea and a time to relax with friends and loved ones.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  23. What a beautiful vignette, I love your bluebird plates and lovely teacups. I especially love the yellow rose cup, my mother-in-laws favorite flower. Have a wonderful weekend!

  24. Oh how pretty your collection of teacups are! I love the mixture -- and the bluebirds are especially pretty (I did a bluebird tablescape this week myself!0

  25. Hi...Just popping back in to thank you for visiting and leaving your kind comment on my Pink Saturday's, Second Birthday Party table. I really enjoyed designing this table, it was great fun! I look forward to visiting you often.

  26. You're a busy, busy lady, especially with those adorable twins to take care of as a Dula and nurse!~

    .., (Pamela, please just pop a comment in the box on my blog if you get a wee moment, whereas you well may not have time to talk either, with those 12 hour shifts; no worries either way however).

    ~ Wow!..,

    Re., those twins, I hear they are the cutest babes though, and I do so hope and pray that the mom is healing!

    Was there an 'ooopsie daisy' with the teapot 'thingie'?~ I can reload it, yet it well may make better sense to wait 'till romorrow and start fresh?..,

    ..,(Also, even though it's our 5th 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday'; waiting until the tenth such party for something extra special may also make more sense as well all things considered.)..,

    I can hardly wait to see what you will post next; you're on a fabulously creative roll!

    ..,(Alas, I have had computer woes myself and could not load the pictures for my own half on Silken Purse Tuesday tea)..,Oh well!

    Thank God 'R' is now fine, or at least much much happier;thanks so much for your kind perspective, prayers and loving understanding with support!..,

    There is always sooo much to be genuinely happy, delighted with and very deeply thankful for than the reciprical!.., Sometimes we all just need 'fresh eyes' and a renewed, refreshed heart attitude!..,She is a delight in sooo many ways, the dear woman and I will always love her dearly!

    Take excellant care of youtself and get some fun and relaxation if you are able my friend!

    Cheers from W.L.

  27. Your Blog is beautiful! Very delicate and feminine. Yellow is a favoured with me. And I live on the Sunshine (yellow) Coast of Queensland. All sun, sand, pineapples and pawpaw.
    My mother and sisters still use beautiful China to drink hot tea. When I married for the second time, mum sent money from Oz to the USA for me to buy a Tea Set...needless to say i didn't buy it as none of my new friends drank hot tea.

  28. i too collect tea cups, etc. yours are beautiful!

  29. How lovely the Tea cups are! I adore the yellow rose cup! Now the bluebirds are very special to me! I just love them! What a wonderful pattern! Sorry so late, last few weeks I haven't been feeling well. I on a mission to see all the lovely Teas I have missed! Love those Tea cups!
