Tea With Little T ~

It is Tea Time Tuesday again!
Rainy and cool, that is the weather outside, but inside, tea time is warm and cozy.
Our youngest granddaughter Little T and I had tea together ; here is my tea cup for today...
... a teacup made in Japan by Norcrest. Isn't it beautiful? This teacup and saucer have a blue background featuring pine cones and pine boughs outlined in gold paint.
I purchased this teacup & saucer on Ebay-there was a smidgen of the teacups' history taped on the back of the saucer . What a wonderful idea, to include the history or story of a piece of china taped on the back or written and packed with the pieces. (Click onto the picture to enlarge it.) The previous owner of the teacup even stated how much they paid for it. " My granddaughter and I had a quiet tea time today.Don't you love spending a quiet day with someone you love, drinking tea and eating good food together? The rest of this tea time will be posted next week. To see other Tea Time Tuesday parties , tea cups, and table-settings please click onto the links shown below:

Hi Kathy,

This is such a lovely post. Miss T. is adorable. What a nice tea cup and serving set. I really like the idea of the notes on the saucer.

Stay dry and warm,

I looks like she is having so much fun at the tea party. You set a beautiul table.

Debbie said...

It would be lovely to have teas. It's a shame no one seems to have time for such. Maybe they should 'take' the time to see what they miss. I've been invited to a few and it was lovely. Little one looks like she enjoys her tea. I really like that teacup. For some reason I'm drawn to anything with pinecones. Something elst to collect! :D Deb

Another beautiful tea party - I love how you do that. Your cup and saucer are lovely - unusual. It doesn't get much better than this - good food, a beloved child and a good cup of tea.

Dear Kathy,
I love your teacup! What a treasure to find! Your tea party with your little sweetheart is so wonderful - wouldn't her and Gabriella have a time together!
Have a blessed day!

Lovely tea time with your little T. Your cup for today is totally beautiful. I love the blue background and the pine cones. Even the shape of the cup and handle is special. How wonderful that you got that information on the back!

Hi Kathy,
Your tea time is special indeed; making memories with your darling little granddaughter. What a pretty little girl she is! I love your teacup! There is something so very charming about pinecones, don't you think? How nice too that you have the history taped to the back. That is a very thoughtful thing for the original owner to do! I've so enjoyed your tea today and thank you for sharing it with us.

I love dishes and things with pine cones on them, they remind me of my Uncle Loren and Aunt Kay's house and visiting my Dad's Aunt Hazel in northern Idaho.

Lynn said...

Tea with your sweet little granddaughter is a delight anytime I am sure. Like your Japanese tea cut and like more before me have said, praying for the people of Japan more than ever today.

Just a brief note but packed full of appreciation, for your post that you shared with us this week. It is so special you can share this time with your granddaughter. Love seeing a teacup that doesn't have flowers on it. I am eager to see you and what you design next week.
Until then, blessings, Pam

Hello Kathy!
God Bless you.

I'm running way behind, but not too late to enjoy tea with thee in this pretty tea cup.

Miss T is a sweetie!

Lovely Tea cup pattern.

PS I put the markers away for awhile...grins...it was such a shock when she turned around and showed me her artwork on herself. It's funny now, but it was a jaw dropper when she did this.

Concetta said...

I stopped by for a little visit again - your blog is a delightful respite! I went to your husband's blog as well - my husband was a beekeeper when we lived in Vermont for 2 years. We loved it there so much and hope to return in a couple of years!
Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

Your teacup collection has so many highlights - but the highest light - is sharing a cup of tea and time with beautiful family members.
