Tea-Time Tuesday ~ Paul Revere

 Liberty Blue china, made in England.The blue & white and the history represented make this china especially appealing to me.
 I have to admit, this cup for Tea-Time Tuesday is filled with strong  black coffee, my beverage of first choice. I am a Pacific Northwesterner & of primarily Scandinavian descent, thus, black coffee (no cream or sugar) is usually my first choice of hot drink.
 *Liberty Blue* Historical Colonial Scenes, Old North Church ~ Made in England. This particular pattern memorializes the midnight ride of Paul Revere.If you're interested in the history of this event and the site, click here*.
 The early history of our nation is fascinating to me, and to combine it with the Thanksgiving celebrations we observe in this month make it a natural for me to display the Liberty Blue tea / coffee cup.
Of course, anyone who loves strong black coffee or tea knows, it is best accompanied by a good sugar cookie.Fortunately, I made a dozen or more.* Now for another pot of coffee, I have a Thanksgiving menu and shopping list to work on.

I am linking with these ladies for Tea-Time Tuesday :

I'd love to be able to drink my tea or coffee black, but it must be my English background that begs for milk/cream. Cookies are a must.

Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3
different internet browsers and I must say this blog
loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a
good hosting provider at a reasonable price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

Good morning Kathy,
Your Liberty blue is lovely and I do enjoy a nice mug of coffee in the morning. Although my background is mostly English, I take both my coffee and tea black. Hubby likes a cookie with his coffee or tea too. I am posting the Mini Trifle recipe at my HOME party at 1:00 this afternoon if you would like to stop by for it. Thank you for coming to tea and have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi
