Tea for Me

I usually set two teacups even if it's just for me, but today, I only set one.  It was such a blessing to grab a quiet moment just to reflect. 

Our weather has turned warm finally and we will actually be able to eat outside at supper time.   I am loving the sunshine early in the morning rather than all overcast and gloomy.

This is a Salisburg teacup that I've had a while.  Although some of the aqua part is chipping off, I still like it.  I especially like the grey just inside the rim.

I am joining the following blog parties:

Teatime Tuesday at Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor

Teacup Tuesday at Martha's Favorites

Tuesday Tea for Two with Wanda at The Plumed Pen

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you have a great week.


  1. Hi there,
    We're hoping to get a little warmer temperatures tomorrow. I'm not wanting Fall to arrive just yet like so many are!
    What a cozy tea; love the silver sugar and creamer as well as the teacup! I enjoyed a tea for one earlier when all was quiet. I would be pleased to have you join my tea party as well. If you would like to just let me know and I'll add your link to my tea post. I hope you enjoy a lovely week filled with warm sunshine.

  3. Thanks for your visit! You have a beautiful teacup for tea this week. I always have to have solitude at least once in the day. I get brain static interference if I don't. Sometimes I get it anyway! Ha! Happy Tuesday Tea! Jacqueline
