Tea for Me

Hello everyone,
I've been away this week on a little trip to 
South Lake Tahoe. It has been hot here at home so we decided 
to celebrate our 56th Wedding Anniversary early.
We will be married 56 years on July 17, 2016.
The weather at 6000 feet was 84 degrees compared to
our 106 degrees here at home.
I came home and unpacked and was ready for a cup
of tea. Just for me.

My hydrangeas are fading, but still, doing well under
the umbrella. 
The tea cups and saucers are Delft

Spode dinner plate, unmarked dessert plate, and two delft tea cups and saucers.
My great-grandmother's sterling silverware. 
Fortebraccio Blue and White pottery vase with faded pink hydrangea
I hope you enjoyed my tea for me today.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.

  1. Hi this is my first time to visit with you. Loved all your pretty pics that I could see.....for some reason they were not all coming up!
    I am a hydrangea lover too, and your pink ones are so lovely. Really enjoyed yor collage as well. Just so you know the 2, 4,5, and 6th pics
    were missing..........so don't know if you can fix that or not, but thought I would let you know just in case.


  2. Hi Betty, I love your blue and white dishes especially the tea pot.

  3. Hi Betty. Nothing better than blue and white to me! Congratulations on 56 years! Wonderful...we are lagging behind at 43. Glad you had a lovely time, and so glad you had time for a gorgeous teatime! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  6. Hi Betty, my name is Anne and I'm a first time visitor to your blog (by way of Amaze Me Monday). I love love love blue and white dishes, and your pictures show me why!!

Anyway, have a great day, and hope to see you stop by my blog sometime to say hi (http://birdsongbitsandpieces.blogspot.com).
