Tuesday tea

Welcome to my Tuesday tea, it's so dreary outside, what we need is a cup of chai tea to pick us up... Itsy bitty teenie weenie yellow bikini is playing in the background. Not related to tea, but find myself typing to the beat. Back to the tea. I don't have any autumn dishes so my chapel hill is the closest I can get. I started these dishes when I was fourteen (a long time ago-might be considered antiques). I was led to get as much white on the plate as I could-food looks better and I am thankful for that advice.

Iam still working with my iPad.  Trying to get this down pat for Ireland and england. I find the pad won't move down  properly on the page when I add pictures. So bear with me...
So come in and join me for tea. Going to stick with my theme using my bestest dishes. Join me

Iam back to my cheese and grapes. Too many sweets lately. Looking at Sandi's biscuits puts weight on me

This is my china set that my mother started me on and I have added too through the years.  Chapel 
hill by Royal Worcester. Silver edge -fluted with a jade and blue leaves. Still love it after all these years-even though jade isn't a favorite color. Also after 42 years of selling china and cups and saucers weekly we have never sold a piece of it. Doesn't say much for my taste. Still love my roses china-
sometimes we need quiet in our life, these dishes do that for me...

This teapot holds a lot of tea. Good size for company. 

Wll I had to revert back to the computer, don't know, if I do the blog while I'm away, I will have to do two pictures at a time and not sure how to add the links. I will persevere, has to be simple? But then I can't pick up a button from other bloggers, so maybe not.  Have a good week....
Iam joining these ladies

  1. Hello Betty,
    I hope you can get the kinks worked out as I would love to see your photos of the UK! I have always dreamed of visiting there! When do you leave?
    Your china is lovely and it makes a pretty setting. Your cup of tea looks lovely in the cup next to the cheese and grapes. I often enjoy just that with my tea.
    I don't have any Autumn inspired china either. I did have a whole set a few years ago but I gave them away to a needy cause.
    I'm so happy to have you join me today for tea. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your week.


  2. Hello Betty, thanks for linking to Heart & Home.
    Hope your computer woes are over soon!
    Your china setting is very pretty - my dearest friend has the same and it always looks lovely and elegant on the table.
