Tuesdays are getting even more interesting with new weekly events starting today. Over at Coastal Charm Linda is hosting the first Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.
Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses is having the first Tea Party Tuesday
At A Stroll Thru Life, Marty is doing a wonderful job hosting Table Top Tuesday, which she graciously undertook once Barb at Grits and Glamour no longer could.
The Made in England ceramic cottage box was reduced to $1.00 because, when the flea market dealer took it out of the glass case, it fell apart. A piece of the back broke away, but I readily glued it back when I got home.
Another favorite is Three or More Tuesday, sponsored by Tam at The Gypsy's Corner.
The tall mug came from a consignment shop. I liked the colorful graphics of tea cups
Inside the mug is a tiny tin house container that cost ten cents.
The little black and white porcelain teapot was in a free box at the flea market. It has an irridescent or lustre glaze. The bottom is marked, “Made in Czecho-Slovakia.”
A Brief Tea Break
A cup of tea and chocolates with a pretty tea book is a welcome break from daily duties.
The teacup and saucer, small teapot and handled cake plate is Minton “Hardwick.” The pattern is reminiscent of Elizabethan crewel work.
The small tea canister was found in a local antique shop and is for Earl Grey one of my favorite teas. The teapot-shaped tea infuser was found at a flea market in fall 2008, and the tiny silverplate tea spoon is from a tea shop boutique.
The book was recently sent to me by my sister from Florida. It is titled Victoria The Essential Tea Companion.
Well, I am happy you stopped by and hope you will come agin soon. Please visit all the hostesses for more participating posts.
