A PINK QUEEN for "Friends Sharing Tea"

What is it about the color pink that makes us so happy?

  Last Sunday I found this vintage pink "Queen"
  in a case at the Warson Woods
 Antique Mall in St. Louis, Missouri.
She takes me away to another time and era. 

I made the buffet runner or seat runner years back by sewing
Crinoline Lady and Sunbonnet Lady Vintage Linens together.
Here was my original post of that back in Colorado.

I am down in the  
 "Tea Room" today at the Buffet.

 There are no markings on my "Queen"
 but she has lots of
crazing and looks really old.

Wednesday night we had our first frost so I picked some
 of the last flowers before the frost.

I am sharing a simple dessert that I think
you would love from Clarice Fox-Hughes' book
"Wishes Are Like..."  She has wonderful
Italian recipes in this romantic book so I made
the Lemon Ricotta Cake with Strawberry
Sauce Topping.  This is her easy recipe
I made for dinner tonight with
 some ricotta cheese and strawberries! 

Perhaps you would like to use this teacup
and have some of the cake.

Today is my tea related blog post and I hope
you can join me if you have a tea post to
link at the bottom below.

I will be sharing at these parties:
The Art of Homemaking Mondays
Tuesday Cuppa Tea
Tea Cup Tuesday

Your new Queen makes such a pretty addition to your tea buffet, Bernideen. I do love all your other pretty ladies on your table, along with that gorgeous runner. How I wish I could sit with you a spell and have a cup of tea and enjoy that ricotta cake with strawberries. Thanks for hosting your gentle party!

Bernideen, your queen has found a suitable home. Your basement tea room is magnificent! My post this week is one I hope many will read right away (time-sensitive) to save them work on the holiday (Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy and Broth). But since it is not tea-related, I linked up a post from my second month of blogging nearly 7 years ago. I have to say it again -- I *love* that tea room!

Love all your pretty ladies and your Queen rules over all!

Margie said...

I'm tickled pink by your new queen! I'd also love to sample some of your yummy lemon ricotta cake with strawberry sauce. Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend.

So much romantic beauty in this post Bernideen. I adore your 'Queen' she looks so good on your buffet with the delicious Lemon Ricotta cake which is really tantalizing and the pretty teapot and.....the total picture is gorgeous.

Bernideen, your pink Queen is lovely and the flowers from your garden are a delight! I would love to sample your yummy looking cake garnished with strawberries. Strawberries are such a treat any time of year. I dearly wish I could join you. I'm certain we would have such a wonderful visit. Thank you for hosting your sweet party and have a lovely weekend.
