Would You Like Some Tea With Your Turkey?

My teacup for today is one I especially love. It is my favorite color, a bright and happy blue, with a beautiful rose painted inside. This teacup shouts "springtime!" to me. How can you not imagine the turquoise-blue sky and roses of late spring when sipping tea from this cup? Oh, look...
...one of my baby Midget White turkeys has discovered the teacup !
Here comes Tom, the other little turkey poult hatched from the eggs of the turkeys ( now grown up) I raised last year. Guess these little ones have inherited their parents' penchant for teacups*.
"Hey Tiny, what are you doing?
"Tom, look at this beautiful teacup, I love it! When I roll around and curl up in it I feel like I am back in my cozy egg.You should try it."
"I dunno Tiny, it seems a bit too small for me...hmmmm."
This teacup is bone china, made in England by Aynsley.Click onto any picture for enlargement.
"Tom, Tom? Where did you go?"
"Look at this beautiful teacup,turquoise blue with gold-edged cup and saucer, contrasted with white and the beautiful rose inside( what can I say, these are very intelligent turkeys with extensive vocabularies). Now where is Tom?"
"Here I am Tiny ! The tea pot is roomy, I think it fits me nicely, I hope Kathy doesn't need this pot for tea anytime soon."
Happy tea-time to you. Any time for a spot of tea is a bright spot in our day. If you share your tea- time with turkeys, well...you can't help but smile. Maybe you might even laugh out loud! Either way, turkeys and tea make a heart happy. For more Tea Time Tuesday fun and inspiration check out the links listed below.

Oh how I enjoy your tea posts! It's been awhile since we had turkeys in teacups, but I enjoy the grandkids too. So whoever you have with tea seems to please :D.
They look so soft and curious about their surroundings. I'll bet the cup does feel like the egg!

You have more pretty babies! They always look so cute when they are little! I love seeing the turkeys when they grow up too, they look so proud!

This is so precious! I have never seen a baby turkey - coupled with the beautiful blue teacup - this makes lovely photos!
Love it,

I loved your tea cup and have been completely charmed by the post itself. It's amazing you've been able to toilet train those little guys :-) I thought for sure there would be unplanned table decorations before you finished with your photos. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

You and your babies make me smile! I told my husband yesterday that I was ready for a couple of milk goats. Am I really? I grew up on a farm with so many different animals and one of my jobs was to milk 2 jersey cows. I'd love to have the fresh milk and think the goats would be easier than a cow...what do you think?

Love the pretty cups of turkey! And my eye caught the lovely embroidered cloth underneath on the last photo. Is it hand embroidered and where did you get it! So lovely! blessings,Kathleen
