Today I am participating in Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi at: Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspirations: 


This morning looking out at fog and rain I set up this little tea venue for today:

I purchased these antique English cups and saucers and assorted odds and ends in Toronto, Canada during the 1980's with my dear friend, Lou Ann!  They have a crown on the underside.
Last night I was watching the older (Colin Firth) version of Pride and Prejudice and I was so sure I saw these dishes with a LARGE TEAPOT for just a moment in one of the scenes.  Do you think they would mind sending me the TEAPOT?  Surely they don't need it anymore!

Late note: all these pieces were later sold at my shop!

I used the end of my husband's very massive lawyers desk to set things up.....

We rarely need lamps on in the day time in Colorado...but it was very dweary out....the Tiffany Lamp cast a glow on the setting....

ooops...I just noticed from this photo a number we have failed to ever peel off this lamp....

I am not a huge "BLUE" person....I tend to love purple but this crosstitch tablecloth was perfect!

For all who appreciate Tea Time....do enjoy!

Island Coconut Black Tea seems like the perfect blend to start the day!

Good afternoon Bernideen,
Your tea is lovely! The china and the tea pot are wonderful and I would love to sit and enjoy a cup of coconut tea with you! I do love the charming print you have hanging on the wall and it all looks so cozy in the soft light from your lamp. Wishing you a beautiful day with sunny skies and a garden filled with blooms.

Your setting is lovely! I agree that the tablecloth is perfect! The cups and saucers are really pretty and so is the little brown teapot. Island Coconut black tea sounds great!

Dreary here, too, but with the everlasting WIND! So a cup of tea after school will be perfect.Love the pansies and tablecloth. Next thing on my list is a pretty tea warmer like yours. Maybe DOT will deliver one some day! ♥♫

Is there any other version of Pride and Prejudice? None worth watching anyway. No one can replace Colin Firth as Mr Darcy!!
I do love your blue (or is it black?) and gold teapot...it looks so nice with that china.
And I am very much a blue person. I love the tablecloth!
