Pretty in Blue, Tea For Two! Welcome August!

Welcome HOT August! Yes we are triple digits for the 32nd day and counting with no end in sight. I was going to have tea outside this week, but it is just too hot. So inside we stay as the AC makes it perfect for a cup of tea and visit with friends.

Beautiful blue and white is always pretty and fresh. By now, anyone who has visited me very often, knows my love of blue and white, toiles of different colors and designs and vintage pieces to treasure.
Today's tea is set just for two with the company of my blue and white rooster tea pot.
To set our mood I display this gorgeous cross stitch handmade by my dear friend Stephanie of Angelic Accents. I have many pieces gifted in her beautiful and talented work and this one is surely cherished. Soft light yellow teapot and cup with blue heart all framed in a rustic blue barn wood frame. So Tuscan or Frenchy for my kitchen or dining room.
Displayed with a sweet little light blue and white teacup and saucer, pot of roses and a beautiful appliqued teapot towel and blue and white.

I love the phrase Stephanie cross stitched with the lovely tea set.

So with our pretty inspiration, I share our Tuesday Tea.

Tea today will be served using this sweet rooster tea pot in blue and white.

One of my favorite cups is this gorgeous Spode set.

Another is this pretty blue and white Elizabethan set.

Tea bags holders, in a blue and white design was a great find a few years ago from Pier 1 Import.

On a trip to Home Goods last year, I found these oval lunch plates with country village and roosters. They make the perfect plate for tea and cookies, lunch or snacks.

While treasure hunting, I found this darling porcelain, blue and white hinged teapot to hold tea bags or sugar packets.

Sugar cookies with vanilla icing and pink sugar glitter is our treat today. Served on a pretty blue and white plate.

Still very Hot outside, but tea indoors is comfy and cool. Thank you for coming to visit.
