Tea Time

Teatime is by its very nature a combination of small luxuries arrange in social symmetry. And although tea for one is certainly a fine thing, the addition of a circle of dear friends to share it with ensures the whole is larger than its parts.

Today I thought I'd share a cup of tea with you all.

Some of you may know that I recently went from bagged tea to loose leaf.
I have yet to look back!
The flavor is so much better than I expected and the act of making tea, now, is so much more fun that popping a teabag in a cup. 

I am drinking my tea today out of this beautiful cup I bought last week. 


What a perfect cup to share as fall is getting underway, don't you think?
It's called Autumn Glory.
I love the fall colors in the flowers
and the gold all around the edges!

Here is a close up of the flowers and gold on the saucer...


And look at the cute flower inside the cup...


 I love it!


 It says
By Appointment To Her Majesty The Queen.
I feel so regal drinking from this!

I loved the way it was displayed in the store so I went ahead and bought the rack it was on too!


And here is it's perch when it is not in use...


Proudly sitting on the mantle shelf my son made for me and right next to the "tea tag" that Shawn sent me.

Thanks for stopping by for a cup of tea with me.

 This will be my first time sharing a post with 
I have enjoyed reading these blogs and seeing the teacups everyone shares but I hadn't gotten around to share until today. 
Having this beautiful cup to share helped! lol

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
