It is again TeaTime Tuesday hosted by Martha* and Lady Katherine* ! Just click onto their names and you will be magically whisked away to their blogs to see the teacups and tea party settings of many others . This is so much fun, I enjoy seeing all the teacups and tea settings.
The teacup I am using for my tea today is Blue Danube, by Noritake. This cup is one of many that go with my favorite set of china. You can see I have snack plates and napkin rings in my china pattern too. "The mere chink of cups and saucers turns the mind to happy repose." George Gissing
For tea today I had mint tea with my egg salad sandwich and grapes. "Hospitality and love go together like a teacup and saucer. Both can stand alone, but one without the other is not complete."
The grapes were part of my centerpiece, and I also added some of last weeks' tea cookies to the edible display. "I always fear that Creation will expire before teatime." Sydney SmithA pretty ivy-filled pink polka dot tea pot~I just might use this tea pot in another Teacup Tuesday very soon. "Tea has qualities that refresh and relax, that warm and comfort. It was said in Victorian times that a good cup of tea would unlock all the secrets a woman carried in her heart." Mary Mason Campbell
