tea party*

(*Well, maybe not quite a party
Since I gave up alcohol for Lent . . .
I've had many, many cups of tea.  So why
not use a pretty cup?   (I've had this one
since I was a kid (i.e., for a looong time)!

[It's Macro Monday. To see more macros, visit Lisa's Chaos.
It's also Blue Monday. To see more blue, visit Smiling Sally.]


  1. Beautiful photo... the artwork is impressive!

  2. I have a collection of blue and white china.
    This is lovely!! I like the dainty pattern.

  3. This is so pretty.

    My Blue Monday entries are here and here.

  4. Ooo, I like.

    Happy Easter!
    Happy Blue Monday, Alexa!

  7. I like tea..Beautiful cup..

    Visiting for Blue Monday- hope you can stop by:)

  8. That is a lovely teacup I bet tea tastes so much better in it. Something about a china cup does that.:))

  9. I luv blue and white china. If you've had it since childhood, it's very special. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I went to a garden tea party several years ago. Everyone was to dress up in long dresses, wear white gloves, a hat (we were all women...chuckle...) and the hostess brought out her best teapot and collection of cups...lovely it was, just like your photo.

  11. Tea is without doubt one of the best drinks on this planet and for some reason it does taste better if you make a pot and drink it out of a pretty tea-cup like this.
