Tea Cup & Tea TimeTuesday
I am really enjoying Teacup and Tea Time Tuesday. I should re-title my Tuesday posts as All Things Tea-Tuesday ! This is hosted by Martha* & Terri* and Tea Time Tuesday is hosted by Lady Katharine*. Click onto their names to see their blogs and the tea cups and tea settings of so many others.Today I used Polish Ware my sister Karen gave me and the special tea cup is a gift from my grandmother. Do you see the little polka dotted lady in kerchief? She is the cover of a covered dish. This works very well for dining on the porch. I can keep my croissants filled with chicken salad safe from the cats and any other critters looking for a free meal until I actually sit myself down to enjoy my tea time lunch. The Polish Ware teapot is the nicest tea pot I own. I rarely use it for fear of breaking it, although it is actually a very heavy and easy to handle tea pot. The tea pot has it's own warmer too.
Blue and white with silver metallic embellishment, what's not to love about this tea-cup? The bottom of the cup and saucer say "Made In Germany" and "U.S. Zone".
I used linens I have collected. This woven table runner is one I purchased in an antique shop. It is made of linen . There are no tags or labels on it but it reminds me very much of a lot of Scandinavian linens I love and admire.
I love to read while eating and sipping tea.Today I read about the history of Memorial Day, also known as Decoration Day.
