All that aside, I realize that I am a couple of days late for the "Savor the Summer Tea" at Rose Chintz Cottage, but perhaps I can "crash" the party just this once. It's a little late in the evening here to set out my tea party things, so I will add a few pictures that might be appropriate for the occasion. Next time I will try to be better prepared.

|I love the delicate little rosebuds that grace the saucer and the cup.|
Roses are my favorite flower anyway...so that makes this even sweeter.
|My Grandma Mursch's Hall Rose Teapot and my June Bouquet Teacup, a gift from my Grandma when I was a young lady... To see a few more of my teapots I refer you to the page entitled "A Few of My Favorite Things" . Be sure to scroll down to see the china closet and a few of the special treasures in my home that I cherish. Another good place to visit is "I Come By It Honestly", which shows some other of my favorite collections.|
This lovely little tea set actually didn't come from my grandmother...it was a gift from a dear friend. I just love the whimsical style of this, don't you? The pattern is called "Chintz Charming" by Julia Bullmore. It certainly fits its name.
I just thought of another teacup that you might like to use...
|My Grandma Tedlie's Haviland Limoges China tea cup and saucer and luncheon plate.|
"The Princess" design...perfect for a couple of princesses having a tea party,
don't you agree?
|Can you tell we were having fun in our little impromptu tea party? Two sisters, doing what we enjoyed doing as little girls growing up together.|
"Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels."
|This little angel is tuning up the violin to serenade us while we have our tea!|
|Now THAT'S a group of Angels! What a tea party that would be!|
