Tea Time Tuesday ~ **Blues** ~

Good Morning Tea Friends!

I am so happy to be back and sharing my LOVE of
all things tea!

I am joining my sweet dear friend Sandi over at
I hope you will stop on by and visit the many other lovely
tea post here on Tuesdays!
Let's get started shall we.
As you enter my foyer you are Welcomed in today
by a pretty blue array of goodies I have on display.
I used this area to backdrop some pretty
hand painted pieces that have ALL been
collected seperately, yet go together so well.

Here's a closer look at what I have on display for you to see.

Below, are the pieces I am showcasing today!
A lovely *new* flow blue teapot given to me by a dear friend.
A tea cup, saucer, creamer and sweet lil sugar dish...all
done up in similar hand painted cobalt blues and deep
burgandy red roses.

All four of these pieces were picked up a different places.
I do believe the creamer was the first piece I had and the
rest came later.

Isn't the inside of this cup pretty...and then the
saucers adds a pretty trim as you look down on it.

Side by side, you can see they are not a matching set,
yet I do believe they work so well together.
The teacup is so very delicate.
I know very little about these but do
remember reading that these were the rage
during the turn of the 1900's?
I'd really love to know more if anyone has more
information.

I am guessing that the small bowl I use to put sugar
cubes in looks more like it is from Japan.
Yet again, it goes so well with the creamer.


Well, there you have my sweet little collection of these
lovely blue pieces.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope I can get out and visit the many
tea loving participants today!

Be Blessed!
Lorena

Hi Lorena,

Thinking of you and hoping you are doing well.

Hello dear friend,
Love your teapot, and the teacup, creamer, and little bowl all go so well togther. Such a pretty vignette in your foyer.

Congratulations to your hubby for getting his new job! That should make your lives much more pleasant and I'll be thinking of you as you begin looking for a new home too.

Also, congrats on being featured in Cindy's magazine! You have much to celebrate.

Thank you for sharing your pretties with Tea Time and I wish you a delightful week.

Blessings and hugs,
