TEATIME COLLAGES for "Friends Sharing Tea"

Today I am sharing some Teatime Collages:

I don't know about you but winter is always a challenge for me.  I love the change of seasons but I tend to get bored rather quickly so it is important to keep busy.  What do you do?  I bake more, sew, make myself do some cleaning -ha and then dream of spring!

   I love this little doily below which is one my curio that holds "purple things"!

I'm not very clever at poems
I'm also not clever at words
But if you think I don't like tea cups
Then - Hey, "that's really absurd"!

Teacups can come from China
They can also come from Japan
Add English ones to the collection
And a tea party will to be planned!

Could a girl ever have too many?
Why certainly I think not!
For every time you move them!
You find an empty spot!

Please pass the cream and
Pass the sugar too
I just need  a little 
So this tiny set will do!

All silly poems by Bernideen!

I hope my tea blogging friends will join me today below!
I am joining these parties:

Mosaic Monday with Judith
Tea Time Tuesday With Sandi
Tuesday Cuppa Tea With Ruth
A Return to Loveliness with Kathy
Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha
Simple and Sweet Fridays

Next week will be Tea Time Tuesday's 5th Anniversary:

Hi Bernideen,
I enjoyed your collages and poems. That one little teacup with the scalloped rim and tiny violets is a sweetheart of a cup! I too get bored this time of year so I tend to bake more. Hubby was really happy when he arrived home to his favourite treat, cinnamon rolls, fresh from the oven today. Trouble is, I have to spend more time on my stationary bike when I bake. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time and have a lovely day.


Susan said...

Beautiful tea cups...and a big thank you for the recipe cards; I love them, XOXO

Sandra said...

So many pretty things you have to share with us today. Love all your collections. It would be hard to have a winter dreary day with all this loveliness around you. Enjoyed your poetry too!

Vee said...

It even looks as if you are dreaming of spring. What do I do? Almost the very same things that you do, though the extra baking must stop here! =D

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

I loved your poems, your mosaics and all your pretty tea things and linens, Bernideen! I think I tend to bake more, cook comfort foods, sew, do projects and organize more in the winter. Today was a beautiful day and I didn't need a coat. I enjoyed it while I could! Thank you for hosting your lovely party, as always.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Bernideen, I'd love to have tea in your home so I could see all the wonderful things you share up close and personal. I've been reading more and working on my cards for the ATAA birthday card exchange.
Thank you for hosting your tea gathering and linking to Mosaic Monday.


The collages are stunning...I don't know which I like the most, every teacup and teapot is gorgeous sweet Bernideen.
I love to bake and cook too and specially keep changing things around the house in cold weather. We have no Winter as you know it, but it's cold weather anyway.
What a lovely poem too.
Thank you for your sweet and kind visit.

I loved every picture and collage this week. I am, I must admit, drooling over the pansy sugar and creamer set!!! LOVED IT.

The Charm of Home said...

Oh man I can't have too many teapots! yours are beautiful!

Margie said...

What pretty colleges! Your "silly poem" made me smile.

Gentle Joy said...

I loved your tea time collages! So many beautiful items and they are arranged so nicely. What a lovely post. :)

Karen said...

Oh Bernideen,
You've made me smile today! I love your rhymes and mosaics too! Gorgeous teacups with sweet poems. When I taught kindergarten I did everything in a rhyme or song and now sometimes hubby must tell me to stop when I come out with silly chants. Love your post today! So fun! Thanks for hosting! Karen

I think it is the darkness hours that get to me during winter. Drinking plenty of tea does help, plus burning candles and having twinkling lights about.

Martha's Favorites said...

I love your tea cups. It is hard to pick a favorites. You always do these collages so cute. Have a wonderful time this week. Blessings, Martha

Tea in the Library said...

Your collages are like a box of those Russel Stover pastel chocolates - eye candy! And the violet edged doily - drool! drool! Your fun poetry post had me smiling ear to ear. Happy tea time Tuesday. You really add a bright spot to my week.

Ruthie Miller said...

You put a smile on my face this morning. I love your silly poems! They are so cute. You have so many beautiful things.

Rosemary and Thyme said...

Hello Bernideen,

You have made this dull and cold winter day happy and bright. I loved looking at your incredible collection of tea cups and teapots. So so pretty.

I also enjoyed your fun and cheery poetry. Nicely done... And I do agree, a girl cannot have too many...

Have a wonderful week.


Sylvia said...

I love all things tea, Bernideen, and yours are all very pretty.

Two Cottages And Tea said...

What a darling poem, Bernideen! I think you need to make a book out of all the poems you wrote and include your beautiful tea pictures! Love all your tea china, always a treat to see. Thanks for hosting.

Antiques And Teacups said...

What a lovely post...gorgeous collages and love the poems as well. Wonderful! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Good evening Bernideen lovely poems and tea cups and such.. I love them all.. I seem to be accumulating so many teapots and cups.. My children say I have to many now hehe but I don't think so I believe I can still find room for more.. I keep busy by crocheting and cleaning some things as well and dreaming of Spring.. with love Janice

Angela McRae said...

I'm playing blog catch-up tonight and glad I did not miss this one. I think your collages are beautiful! (And wow, you have so many great photos from which to choose. You should never run out of ideas!)

Michele said...

Your tea wares are absolutely gorgeous, Bernideen!

I have a couple of true favorites - I ADORE that first teapot with the green and hand painted pink roses, wow is that pretty - and that ruffle-edged top unique violets teacup is gorgeous - so many pretty pics, wow.

Like Angela above, I am SO GLAD I didn't miss this. I have been behind in my reading of fav blogs, I will try to do much better. Your posts are not to be missed!
