SWITCHING BACK TO "Friends Sharing Tea"

Our weather today has called for a change - it's time to switch back from "Tea In The Garden" to "Friends Sharing Tea"!  Last night we had 20-40 mile an hour winds bringing
 down most of these leaves that you see here. 
 I took this photo the day before:

It seems like a good morning to sit here by the window where it is warm and cozy and have our tea:

Although I don't even have napkins or silverware out, I did set the dining room table with some mix and match transfer ware.  I think I am more of a mix and match gal.

I found this little whimsical sugar bowl below on my trip to Missouri in the little town of Rocheport.  Their population was 199 but their were tourist there that day viewing this old town.

Do pour yourself a cup of tea....

If you are a tea blogger, I hope you can join me today by sharing anything tea related or even baking by linking a post from your blog below.  I am also joining some other parties:
Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi
Tuesday Cuppa Tea With Ruth
A Return to Loveliness with Kathy
Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha
Share Your Cup Thursday with Jan

I wish you a very happy fall!

Hi Bernideen. We had a stormy couple of days as well...the leaves are really falling! No wonder you have headed back inside! Love cottageware! I think it is so homey! Love your foliage photos and your gate! Transferware is always great in the fall, isn't it? Thanks so much for hosting and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

You are moving inside and I'll be ready to move outside soon ... no more heat and humidity! But I'll always be having tea. Love all the autumn colors in your teascape. Lovely transferware. Happy Tea Day and Thanks for hosting!

Those leaves are so pretty and it's a shame they had to blow off so soon. But your tea inside is very cozy and I love transferware, as you know. You have some very nice pieces. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea. Hope you're having a delightful day, Bernideen.

I LOVE seeing all you pretty tea things, Bernideen. It's a good thing that you are inside today with your high winds. Thank you so much for hosting you tea party and your home.

Beth in NEPA said...

We are in for some stormy days this week but not so cold yet. Love that little tea pot.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Beautiful tablecloths! Oh, those horrible winds. Your settings look nice and autumn like. Nancy

Jill said...

Autumn does tend to arrive with high winds every year. However, your fall transferware makes for a warm and welcoming tablescape.

The Charm of Home said...

You have a lot of pretty fall dish patterns! I love the ones on the dining table. Thanks for hosting!

Dear Bernideen,
you are so right, one has to enjoy the nice weather as long as possible. I love when the leaves turn their colors. With the fall flowers it makes a great impression. But the setting in the house looks also warm and cozy. Love the new sugar bowl. This sets are too cute. Thank you for having me for tea and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Ruth...Time Was Antiques said...

Fall is definitely here. Love the fall colors in your garden and your china. A lovely fall table. Thanks for hosting.

Karen said...

Hi Bernideen,
Sorry that I am late to link up this week - I was busy with Thanksgiving Day dinner and entertaining.
It is upsetting that Tea in the Garden is over for another year. It has been so much fun! I love your cottage-like teapots. You were right, my pink teapot is a Sadler. I think you probably have a very large collection of teapots too. I just love your dining room table and your transferware is just beautiful Your amber crystal is spectacular! Thank you for hosting Friends Sharing Tea. Karen

Rosemary and Thyme said...

Thanks for hosting Bernideen. You always set the prettiest tables.

Wishing you a beautiful wwek.


Marilyn Miller said...

Your leaf color is stunning.
I have that same teacup and soon it
will come out for Fall celebrating. It is cooling off here too and soon the cold and wind with considerable rain will be here. Out will come the Fall teaware.

I think you have blown some of the wind our way as it was blowing a gale yesterday, along with huge deluges of rain. Yep, Autumn is here! Keep cosy xx

Tea in the Library said...

Everything looks so cozy. I am more mix and match myself. We had some blustery days but are back to mid 70's today. Thanks for hosting !

Carrie said...

Hi Berideen! Your pictures are so pretty this week. That's a shame you already have to move back in, at least you got a couple of great shots of the leaves. Thanks for hosting, and I hope you have a great week.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

We've been having more rain again so tea will be inside - plus it's becoming too cool outside.
The cottage tea things are quaint and I really like the painted birdhouses hanging in the birch trees.
Thank you hosting a tea gathering each week Bernideen.

Carolyn said...

I am enjoying the autumn colors in the garden as well.
I love mix and match china as well ~ makes it more interesting.

Thank you for hosting,

Cindy said...

I'm going to have to compile the address to join for tea, I'm on the road and had to switch out tablets and well it can be a little pressing at times, if you could imagine. I'm all about mixed up patterns and have set a tablescapes without silverware, never noticed until the company asked for a fork

xinex said...

Your leaves are already changing, Bernideen. Not quite here yet. Love your tea things....Christine

Kathy said...

Hello Bernideen - gorgeous teacup and love your new whimsical sugar bowl! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

Hi Bernideen, what a gorgeous Fall table! I too am a mix and match kind of girl. I love your transfer ware. I found a small plate at a yard sale Saturday with a fruit design and brown border. I snagged it up in a big hurry. I think she used it as a display piece because it was in a plate holder. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
