It's Tea Time in Blogland Ladies

Hello to all my fellow Tea lovin' bloggie friends.....It's once again Tea Time in Blogland, and there are lots of Parties going on, with wonderful Teacups, Teapots, and all things related to Tea to be seen.

Below is a list of the Parties that I am participating in this week, so be sure to stop on over and say hello to these lovely hostesses......

TEACUP TUESDAY hosted by: Martha @ Martha's Favorites & Terri @ Arful Affirmations

TEAPOT AND TEA THINGS TUESDAY hosted by Pam @ A Breath of Fresh Air

TEA TIME TUESDAY Hosted by Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage

TEA TIME TUESDAY @ Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor

For this weeks vignette I decided to do it on our front covered porch. The Table and chairs are a Faux Wicker set....looks like the real thing, but this set can sit outdoors in all types of weather and not rot away!

This weeks featured Teacup is my most favorite and cherished cup. It's by Royal Albert, and is from the American Beauty collection. I just adore the roses on this set....I plan to SLOWLY acquire more pieces from this collection. Some can be a bit pricey, but definitely well worth it!!

Here's a close-up of the saucer...don't these roses make you swoon! They do for me!! :)

This is the marking on both the cup and the saucer.

Some gorgeous faux pink roses....sorry ladies, but I don't have any real ones..waahhhhhhh!!

A sweet vintage wicker basket.....check out those GORGEOUS vintage roses on it; they are the softest, palest shade of pink...can you say YUMMY!!

Yup, you've seen this pretty pink Teapot before, but I just love it and wanted to show it again, LOL!! Also a sweet slice of one of Rhonda's faux posts would not be complete without one!!

A sweet Cherub planter with some lovely faux pink roses, a beautiful Glicee print of a lovely Southern Lady, and a white candle holder with sparkly prisms and rose pattern pink candle completes this lovely vignette.....oh yes, the tablecloth that all this sets on is Vintage, and has lovely faded pink stripes and gorgeous red toned roses! The perfect backdrop don't you think :)

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed your visit with me. I'm looking forward to visiting everyones Tea posts!!

Warmest hugs to you all, Brenda

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble said...

I love this sweet vignette that you have set up on your front porch!!
I have the same type of wicker but it is great when exposed to the elements!!

What a gorgeous tea cup!! A whole set would be to die for but we don't need you to refinance your house as I know some of these can be quite pricey!!

I would love to have a porch like that!!


Sheila said...

Love it all. Wonderful arrangements and colors. Wish i was not such a clutz.. lol arranging things to look as beautiful as yours is just not easy for me. Oh well, i love to come to blogland and look.. thanks... Sheila

The teacup is beautiful! Does the tea cup collection of American Beauty feature other roses too? The markings on the bottom of the cup and saucer are themselves very beautiful, and intriguing to me. Thank-you for sharing this cup and saucer,I look forward to additions (patiently)to your collection~

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Hi Brenda,

It's always such a pleasure to come here for a visit. Such a gorgeous teacup. I know some of them can be pricey. I love that image too. I think it's a Maude Humphrey? Just lovely. Have a great day!


Terri said...

You have set such a pretty table! And your Rose Royal Albert tea cup is wonder it is your favorite!
Thank you so much for sharing this one with us today.

Denise@alloverroses said...

Your Royal Albert tea cup is lovely. They do have the prettiest designs. Even the roses on the bottom of the cup are pretty. I'm off to look at some more cups. I am running behind today. Enjoy your day!

Tina Eudora said...

Oh Brenda it is so beautiful and so classic in it's design and pattern. A true beauty that will stand the test of time. I love the gold edging also as it gives the set a touch of elegance!

Laura's Rose Garden said...

Hello Brenda,
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier today. I have just discovered yours and I cannot believe that you have almost the same cndlestick that I have. I picked two of them up a few weeks ago ($2. for the pair). They were old gold coloured and the prisms were missing. I had a stash of prisms at home and knew they would look great painted white.
I love your cup and saucer. I have one as well, a creamer and sugar and also a luncheon plate and cup. Pink roses are devine!
I also read yesterdays blog and I also just picked up Victoria Classics Magazine. It is lovely. I am a die-hard Victoria Mag fan. I am fortunate to have every issue and reread them every month!!
Stop by again when you can. I am going to add myself to your followers list.
Hugs, Laura

Heather's Blog-o-rama said...

Thanks for inviting me to tea at your site here today :) :) Oh, you always set a great table. I love all the pinks!! Somehow I imagine your home is just as lovely as all the tea things you share with us :) :) Royal Albert...I'll have to remember that..and Prince Albert and Chintz..those seem to be the patterns I'm most drawn too. I love it..and that backstamp on the Royal Albert teacup is gorgeous!!!! Have a great week!!! Oh this is fun :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Terri Gordon said...

Hello, what a beautiful tea cup, I think my favorite tea cups are the Royal Albert ones. Love the beautiful roses. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful week. Terri

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hi Brenda,
Sorry, I'm a little late making my visits. I had surprise company all day.
That is without a doubt one of the prettiest teacups I've seen! It is a beauty and I am swooning! Love the pink teapot too! A very pretty tea out on your porch! Thank you for inviting us. Hope you're having a lovely week.


A Hopeful Heart said...

What a beautiful vignette. And I can easily see why that is your most favorite teacup. It is stunning!! Really, one of the most beautiful teacups I've ever seen.

I love the girl print. So lovely!!

As always, your blog beautifies my day. I look forward to my daily visit.

Hi Brenda...I love Royal Albert American Beauty Rose and have actually made many teacup chandeliers over the years with that pattern! xo, Janet

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

Brenda...that pattern by Royal Albert is the prettiest. I am going to have to find some pieces, too. I love full blown English roses.
