38th, Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday; marmalade

Welcome to....

38th,  Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday

Each small task of everyday life is part
of the total harmony of the universe.

                                                                                                         St. Therese of  Lisieux

A warm wintery welcome to all of  you.  I am pleased to be part of the festivities this week as I am well.  I hope you are well too!

Do  you sometimes dream of  lounging in a luxurious bed, clothed in an etheral gown, eating the best pastries and fruits as you read your favorite books?  I do.  But the reality this week for me, was a mound of rumpled bed linens , wound around a limp flannel-gowned body, nibbling on toast and tea , one hand on the remote.  Quiet time but not enjoyable.  I am now attending to the daily tasks at hand, just enjoying each moment.

While you settle yourself  in a cozy chair I will set off to the kitchen to boil the water for the tea.  Its tea and toast today.  What do you prefer on your toast?  Friends have shared a jar of homemade marmalade.  The oranges are from their orange tree, which grows in their bay window.   I will be inquiring about ingredients and technique and share it with you.

GOOD Morning Sunshine

I may not be awake or do I need those
glasses more than I thought?
Mismatched cream and sugar??? and I didn't
notice until my shoot was done

They look quite cute

An amazing vibrant orange jam
Placed butter and marmalade on a mirror to protect the table.

Thank you for sharing your time and talents with all of us.
~ I encourage you to stop by and savour another cup of tea while you enjoy her pretty vignettes.
The more the fun!

  1. That is such a pretty pale yellow cup and saucer and the marmalade looks yummy.

  2. I posted a comment, (that also included with details about your house pictures), on your recent blog post and such, in detail and 'ugh', blogger bumped me out!.., It happens rarely, yet it is super annoying!

    ..,(I may re-comment in greater detail later)...,

    Take care Pam! ~ Everything is lovely as always! Thanks for co-hosting, 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday' once again.

    Cheers, blessings and hugs,

  8. Love the set you shared here.. reminds me of spring that coming soon I hope! love the yellow colour!

  9. The yellow teacup is so cheery, how can you not smile when you sip tea from it?

    I hope you are feeling much better by now. Toast with marmalade and hot tea sound so refreshingly delicious right now. Plus, I do have some good books to finish reading...

  10. There is nothing wrong with mismatch! Beautiful white tea pot and the yellow teacup is a real stunner. I love the scallops. mamalade .... one of my favorite things !!!

  11. Love the mismatch and I do it on purpose! Some day I want to own a bistro on the sea for all my fancy things and tea, however mismatched they might be, they bring a world of happiness to me! Now that I follow you, come over and a new follower be, whilst I prepare a pot of tea!

  15. Hi Pam,
    your tea trio is so nice, looks so springy to me. And you made such a wonderful tea table with all the precious things. Thank you for having me for tea.
    Greetings, Johanna

  16. Beautiful! I love the yellow tea cup and saucer. So dainty! I also love your silver toast holder.
    I like raspberry jam on my toast thank you...but I would also love to try some marmalade : )

  17. So glad to hear that you are feeling better! I became ill on Christmas Day, of all things ,with the awful intestinal bug that has been going around and was sick for 4 days!!
    Now let me tell you that this is truly an elegant Tea post!
    Your sparkling clear glassware and that magnificently shaped tea pot are stunning! And that delicate tea cup is pure perfection!!
    Just beautiful!!


  18. Dear Pam
    Sharing my Tea cups with you is a great pleasure
    I'm really glad visiting you every Tuesday

  19. Well, that is just about the most perfect setting for tea that I've seen! Loved it, and I d love to share a cup. Drop by for lunch with me, and you won't even need to get out of your jammies. I've been in mine for a few weeks, recuperating from a bug.

    Happy Tablescape Thursday to you...


    Sheila :-)

  20. Pam, Your yellow cup and saucer are so pretty!
    Blessings, Beth

  21. Beautiful! I think the mismatched creamer and sugar are lovely...adds character. Have a good weekend!

  22. Your photos are so pretty, Pam. All your tea cups and pots look wonderful. I love everything!...Christine

  23. Lovely! You've set another beautiful table. I actually prefer mismatched pieces - like your creamer and sugar. I have a number of "sets" of china, but choose to mix them up when I use them. ;)

    Thanks for linking to the party.
