Tea Time Tuesday ~ Blue and White

Good Morning My Wonderful Tea Friends!!!

Let me get the business stuff out of the way so I can
get going on my Oh So BLUUUUUE and White Tea.
Be sure to Check out the many Tea's that
are presented on Tuesday...and my Hostess today is
You will NOT be disappointed in seeing all the
amazingly different ways to enjoy tea.

For today, I decided on using a theme again. Sharing with you the
many Blue and White goodies I have around my home.
I have put together a very eclectic setting but am sure
my Tea Loving company will not even notice that nothing
matches because we having so much fun! lol
First off, I am sharing yet again another gift...
the Tea Cup(s) and Tea Pot
was a gift many years ago.  My sweet friend found this set at the
Cracker Barrel!!! ( Luv that Store) 
It's *New* made to look Old Flow Blue!
It is really rather ornate in shape and all the beautiful detailing
inside and outside of the cup, saucer and pot.
See? even the insides are pretty!
This sweet set came with 2 cups/saucers..won"t you join me today?
 I also pulled out a vintage Dutch Delft Blue Ceramic piece that is made
to use as a Center Piece, it has 3, 1/2 dollar sized holes in top
to hold your blooms.
The sweet salt/pepper shakers are part of a larger set of
canisters that were my mom's.  I remember these growing up in
her Blue and white Kitchen...she loves blue too...and when they
moved 12 years ago from the home I grew up in...she brought
me many of her blue and white pieces from her collection,
in a box, by plane!  Needless to say, I was speechless!

This creamer/suger set was a Thrifting find.  I love how they stack!
Now, as I have shown you the blue and whites I picked for
our Tea... come sit, so we can enjoy a piece of my
Amish Cake I made up yesterday, using the last of my
I have placed my cake on a larger white dollar store find with a
blue/white Staffordshire lunch plate...looks pretty good, huh? YUM!
Oh and I could NOT let my blue and white theme go by, without showing
you a sweet lamp I have in my kitchen .
It's such a sweet lil teacup/saucer and I love it so!

Well, that's it for this Tuesday!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I love and read ALL of your comments!

Blessings to All!

Hi Lorena,
Oh, your blue tea things are lovely! The teapot and teacups are darling! I have the blue and white plate! And I adore your lil teacup lamp; so precious! But do you know what really caught my eye? I have that same brown teapot! I think the top must have gotten broken because I can't find it. Mine comes with a little white spoon. It was a gift from a family member many years ago {My Grampy's second wife, whom no one liked except me. And she bought me that little teapot when we were out shopping one day. The rest of the family was shocked that she would buy me anything!} So, here I still have it after something like thirty-five years! I will have to try and incorporate it into a tea one of these days. Isn't that cool?

Thanks for stopping by and joining me for Tea Time today. It's always a pleasure to have you! Wishing you a beautiful day, dear friend.

I have always loved blue and white. I wish I was rich and had a few houses to decorate in different color schemes! Your photos are beautiful! I love the shape of the saucers.
Have a good day!

Thank you for stopping by my blog for my tea party today. In getting to your blog, via your profile, I see that you like Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers. I MUST tell you, I am a classic movie addict. I do a movie review every Friday of a favorite classic movie. The one I did a couple weeks ago was Penny Serenade, with Cary Grant. Have you seen that one? That is my favorite Cary Grant movie...even more than An Affair to Remember.

Also, my puppy is named Ginger, after Ginger Rogers, my husband's favorite actress of all-time.

Your tea party colors are PERFECT for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. SO beautiful and patriotic..

Have a lovely week,
Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)

Just wonderful and I'll be right over to share a cup of tea with those lovely cups!!! Cracker barrel...awesome!!! It does look like flow blue!
How very nice to have some of your Mom's pretty blue treasures.
