Back Home and Tea

I am joining the following blog parties this week.  There are so many wonderful places to see all things tea related.  I hope you take some time and visit a few.

The Plumed Pen:  Tuesday Tea for Two and Wednesday Tea for Me and Thee (I don't know how Wanda manages TWO parties in one week!  Amazing.

Martha and Terri's Teacup Tuesday:  There are truly beautiful things posted here.

Lady Katherine at Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor for Tea Time Tuesday:  Wonderful photos and great posts.

Wanda and Pam for Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday

We spent the last weekend in our RV.  It was a fast trip and the weather was cold and dreary, but we met up with some wonderful friends and had a great time.  Friends make it all worth while, don't they.

Today I'm back home doing laundry, playing with my grandgirl and decided I needed to take some time for a quiet moment and some tea during her naptime.  Nothing fancy, but what a treat it was. 

I used the same linen I had for my last tea a few weeks ago.  And, as usual, I set two cups.  I'm not sure why I do that.  Perhaps I should try for a morning AND afternoon tea.

Just for fun I decided to use one of the 'flowering' tea buds I had.  The tea is not one of the best, but it's fun. 

The cup is a Foley China company. I really like the flower spray on the inside.
I haven't a clue what the name of the pattern is, but the number looks like 3236.

This is a Royal Ascot teacup

I don't know the pattern of this one either, but I do like the colors.

The silver tray, cream and sugar are thrift store finds that turned out beautifully when polished.
The spoons are plated that are also found treasures.

Thank you so much for joining me for tea today.  Make sure that you check out the other posts for some wonderful tea items.
