Tea Time Review 2015


Hello everyone, 
Welcome to my annual tea time review. I love to set a
tea table, large or small and this year I have tried to post
your favorites and mine.
January
Friendly Village is everyone's favorite. I started off with
a warm and cozy tea table in the living room
by the fireplace with a few roasted chestnuts.

February
The first flower to bloom in my yard is our large
Camellia. February is a romantic month so I
have heart shaped cookies and a little felt heart to
share with you. Cupids on the vintage vase and
a tall mug to drink a cup of hot tea on a crisp
February day.

March
I love the month of March. I'm out in the garden working and in the afternoon
I sometimes need a little nap and a pot of tea in my favorite room.

April
The Iris are blooming and a pot of tea and a scone is perfect for
a beautiful April day.  My favorite lavender cups and I know you
love them too.  Please sit with me for a spot of tea and a scone.
May
The garden is full bloom and ONE of my favorite flowers is showing off
today. When my mother passed away in November of 2012, I dug up some of
her favorite peony plants and replanted them in my garden. What a joy
to see the beautiful flowers that once bloomed in my mother's garden
for over 60 years flourish in my garden. I found the tea cup with big peony blossoms and a  gold handle at the thrift shop.
The tea cup and the peonies look very regal.

June
A lazy day in June is the perfect time to relax in my favorite room
with a cup of tea and a piece of toasted raisin bread. Yum!
I have picked some of my favorite roses for my angel vase.
July
It's time for Tea for Three. My granddaughters came over to join me
for a spot of tea and a festive cupcake. The roses are still blooming
even when the weather is so hot.
August
While on our anniversary trip to the West Coast. I found this
precious knit tea cozy...I knew it was time to bring out the
Scottish tea cups and have some shortbread cookies.

September
September is apple month and I have everything for an Apple tea.
I love my green depression glass tea cups and saucers. Apple napkin
rings and napkins with an apple pattern finish my tea tablescape.


October
During our trip to Boston in September.
We visited the the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum and 
Abigail's tea room. While drinking tea and eating lunch there 
I purchased Abigail's tea blend to bring home for a tea party. 
I had a pleasant day and I prepared a Tea for Abigail. Chicken salad sandwiches, with grapes and strawberries on the side.
A new tea towel and my grandma's tea pot she brought over from England in 1914.

November
I was excited about decorating for Christmas and when sweetheart and I
were on vacation I found this darling handmade lamb.
The vintage tea pot, Old Country Roses tea cup and saucer and a
Christmas Cactus is a match made in heaven.
December
I have been searching for a Christmas tea cup and saucer for years.
I found one while in the thrift shop during Thanksgiving weekend.
My son and I love to check out thrift stores and I was so
blessed to find this Duchess tea cup and saucer.
This is my Christmas Day post to all my wonderful
followers and friends. It's also my 6th anniversary of blogging.
I published my first post on December 25th. 2009.

Thank you for visiting My Cozy Corner and I hope you
enjoyed my Tea Time Review.
Joyously,
Betty

  17. Happy blog-a-versary! Wonderful review....these are all gorgeous! Can't pick a favorite...even though I love the Friendly Village, all of these are superb....

  18. Oh my goodness Betty, I just about died when I saw all those gorgeous tea cups in your page header! I love how you love tea and making a beautiful big deal out of setting the table nicely and spoiling those you love. The friendly village set is stunning, and I really love your thrift shop christmas find too; thrift shopping is wonderful (and addictive). I too collect teapots and teacups, but I've never thought of having a 'set' to use each month based on the appearance of them. I think I'll start that, so thank you so much for the inspiration! I'll be back :)
