Won't you join me....

...by the fire for a cup of tea??
The sun is shining today but there is a chill in the air.

Grab a chenille sofa pilla and get comfy.

We each have our own choice of tea in our own lil brown teapots.

The cups and saucers are a green Currier and Ives set of Country Life.
Using spoons from my silver ware set.
The small log cabin is a vintage maple syrup tin from Vermont.

The bottom green luncheon plates are vintage but no marks on them.
They have country cottages on them and farm tools, love them.
Delicate white floral china napkin rings from Japan.

Such a cute set for sugar and creamer.
They have pine cones hanging on a branch, brown and green.
A MADE IN USA on bottom that is like Hall or McCoy used.
Cream cake slices in a fruit bowl that matches the plate set.
I really love these old vintage greens.
All of these are my found treasures over the years.

I am so comfy here sadly I may have to ask your assistance to rise up from here.
My 'vintage' joints are getting sort of stiff...;-)
Whew ...that's better..thanks so much!!!

This is a cute teapot appliqued and pieced , hand quilted table topper.
The pot lids have sweet buttons on them.
Was a gift from a online friend a few years ago.
When I use this, and I do for my tea at times, I think of her.

Happy Tea Tuesday!

Always love visiting you, my friend...I'll help you up, if you'll help me up...it is getting harder and harder to pick these tired bones UP...they want to stay DOWN!
