Friday Show & Tell
For The Love Of Tea

I am a big tea lover and I thought I'd share with you a few ways in which I enjoy it!

This is my very favorite tea cup. Mr. P purchased it for me when we visited the Biltmore House in North Carolina.
My tea cup stand with just a few of my favorites.
This is a picture of Miss Bonnie's room. Mr. P made shelves for her that run along the top of three of her walls. When she was younger they were home to many stuffed animals, now they hold her collection of tea cups. As you can see, I have passed my love of tea down to my daughter!
This was a gift from my son and daughter-in-love at Christmas! It is called "Invitation to Tea." Inside the box are some wonderful tea time recipes on beautiful cards and they also provide this cd with the most beautiful music to listen to while you are sipping your tea!
Miss Bonnie had the privilege of visiting London several years ago. She also had the privilege of taking tea there! She brought this wonderful recipe book back as a souvenir ~ the scone recipe is the yummiest one we have ever tried.

And last but not least, I even have them hanging from my dining room chandelier!

Can y'all tell I love tea? lol Thanks so much for stopping by and please make sure and visit Kelli for more show and tell Friday!

Pretty tea cups. That is a clever idea to hang them from your chandilier.

Pretty....I've been watching some tea cups/saucers on Ebay recently...they're all so pretty!!!

Now my question is....how on EARTH did you get the cups to go on the light's arms? I would fear that they'd get broken.

My Show N Tell is shared, if you haven't stopped by I hope you will; for a visit.

Even though I don't drink hot tea, I think tea things are so pretty and feminine! You have a lovely collection.

I love tea too--we collected cups for our anniversary--then we stopped because we had too many ~..~ ; I recognised the top one--we were at the Biltmore last year.!

Beautiful tea cups. What is your favourite tea?

You'd love these tea rooms here in the UK:

Regency Tea Room, Bath
Betty's Cafe Tea Room, York

They are gorgeous places to visit.

Oh my Susan you sure have some lovely tea cups. I am afraid I just drink my tea from a very large mug. Thanks for sharing them with us all.

Wow...awesome post!

I love tea cups and tea.
Have you tried any of the
recipes in the book?
Nothing like a great
scone, my friend makes
them with dried cranberries,
and they are good!

Deb said...

Susan ~ I enjoyed seeing your teacups. Would you mind sharing your scone recipe since you mentioned that it's one of your favorites? I received a scone pan for Christmas but haven't tried it out yet. Thanks!

I loved seeing all your pretty tea cups and I like the way you have them sprinkled in your chandelier. Linda

I agree. The cup you have chosen as your favorite is very beautiful.
