Tea in the Garden





Welcome to Tea in my Garden!  What a fun time we had putting this breakfast tea for two together.  The fruit of our labors was well worth the effort!   We started outside so we could enjoy this view of our majestic Pikes Peak, but the morning breeze quickly turned to wind!   

 Lets go inside, to my sunroom, it's nice and warm in there and without the wind.
My own orange almond crescent rolls
 are waiting for you.


Go ahead, have more than one, they are so good!



I have paired them with Lipton's New Island Mango Peach White Tea - Yummy!

I'm using some of my favorite old chintz cups.   They are James Kent Ltd., made in England, "Du Berry" pattern. 


I've never had the saucers for them so I paired the cups with these pretty little plates.

TeaCup Tuesday

I've been away way too long.  There are at least a hundred reasons why I haven't posted.  And none seem to matter now.  I have peeked in on all of my favorite blogs from time to time, like Martha's and Terri's, and have oooed and ahhhed over many beautiful tea cups, but I haven't shared any of mine.    Sometimes life just takes you along in whirlwind and you just don't  have the time to stop and enjoy a nice cup of tea and a good talk with some dear friends.   I'm learning that you have to make the time, like right now, to enjoy this wonderful sleepy time tea and catch up with some dear blogging friends before I lay my sleepy head down for the night.

I bought these beautiful cups at a garage sale this weekend for $4.00 a piece - can you believe it!   And I was lucky enough to find a pair.    I have had a long day so I'm saying goodnight.   Before you head in that direction why not pour yourself a cup of tea dear friend and check out the other beautiful teacup treasures at Martha's and Terri's Teacup Tuesday.
