Fall Tea and Falling Leaves

Today I am sharing my Colonial Homestead Teapot by Royal, along with a few other pieces.
Welcome to my Fall Tea.

Enjoying a cup of Twining's Irish Breakfast Tea with thin slices of moist fruit cake.
I have it set up on an antique small desk with one of my first quilt pieced works from 1985 called Falling Leaves.
Think here it works for a cool Fall day cup of tea.

Here is a close up of the 'Blessing' that is on a few of the different serving pieces.
I have been collecting this pattern for 30 yrs.
I love the simple look of it. On each piece is a different scene or item on the Colonial Homestead inside a log home.
When I found this teapot I felt like I had found GOLD!!!! It is a true treasure to me anyway.
I have plenty to use all plates and such for the big Christmas open house we have every year.
The green just seems to say Christmas when I pair it with red.
As you can see though it too goes well with Fall colors as well.
Hope you are inside by the fire enjoying a cup of warm tea on this gray Fall day.. at least that is what is outside my window here in my part of Virgina!
Please blog on over to Kim's Blog , Shabby, Pink and Pretty,and check out all the other blogs celebrating Tea Tuesday!!


  1. Oh, would I love to see that table set for Christmas. I hope you will share that with us.
    You won't believe this, but I bought two of those plates, dinner size at a Thrift shop and broke them up for a mosaic on a stepping stone. I will tread more softly on that step in the future.

  2. Really pretty fall setting for tea! Imagine it's beautiful with red at Christmas too. Be sure to post a picture when you use it during the Christmas season!

  10. What a lovely collection of green china you have Lola. I've never seen this pattern before. It's very charming and adds such a coziness to your tea table. If I ever see a piece during my antiquing jaunts, I will surely think of you when I do.
