Spring Tea

My first tea on the balcony!

It was Earl Grey tea with savory tea biscuits served butter and saskatoon jam.

The teacup showed up Tuesday and I paid more than I usually budget but it was the perfect color.

As you can see it fits right in.  It is by Cauldon and it is a marriage of 2 patterns. The cup is pansies and the sauce is leaves but it works.  I bought a yellow one from the same company about 1 year ago. I think it has a tulip pattern.
I served the biscuits on the saucer of my heart tea cup set.  Made tea in the small true blue teapot and used a placemat I made myself which complements these items well.

The weather has turned and I am looking forward to having tea on the balcony for the next few months.
My Window Sill Art for today.  They are golden yellow grasses stems.  I found this glass cruet a few days ago which provides some variety of shapes I can have on the sill.
The sparrow was doing acrobatics on the bird seed bell in the crabapple tree this morning. 

I am glad I don`t have to stand on my head to get my breakfast.

The neighbour down the lane had some beautiful tulips on the front porch.  It is getting passed their season but the color was a breath of fresh air.

I wish you a happy day!

  5. I'd say that your new teacup is a beauty, Sylvia!! Doesn't it look beautiful with your teapot, your heart plate and your pretty handmade placemat. I know you're enjoying tea on your balcony, and the biscuits look scrumptious! I had to chuckle at the birdie picture. Yes, aren't we lad that we don't have to eat upside down?!

  6. Hooray for the first outdoor tea! Your new blue teacup is the perfect addition to your blue collection. Sometimes, we have to splurge and treat ourselves, right?!?

  7. What a pretty teacup for your first outdoor tea of the year. I haven't ventured out with my teacup yet, but it's been warm enough to do so. Your capture of the bird acrobat is great - he's a determined fellow.

  8. Tea on the balcony! A sure sign that it is Spring ... and what a beautiful tea it is. Funny little bird -- you have entertainment along with your cuppa!
