Hello and welcome to a Tuesday Cuppa Tea full of celebrations!
First of all, this weekend and Monday is Canada Day! As you know, we are very close yo Vancouver Island, and will see the Victoria fireworks from the end of our street across the Strait of Juan de Fuca...so to all my Canadian friends...
Hope you had and are having a wonderful holiday!
My choice of teacup was because of our upcoming 4th of July! I love to celebrate the beginning of our freedom...but this is how my Brit husband celebrates...
He always hangs out the Union Jack, although the US flag is also prominently in evidence...our neighbors love it and think it's hilarious!
I had a simple patriotic tea in the sunroom today, which was all I could fit in with our daughter, son in law and 2 dogs here from Utah for most of the week...arriving last Wednesday...and we have been all over.
But I put this together with my patriotic decor balls, Rosebud plate by Royal Doulton and blue and white transferware Bristol by Crown Ducal...a variation on the Asiatic Pheasants pattern...
The table is one I painted in the 198s when painted furniture was a big thing. It is the perfect small table for tea by the wicker chair in the sunroom in the afternoon...
It has leaves that fold away when not in use. The rest of the time it serves as an end table to the wicker chair. I had a lovely cranberry orange and almond scone I made a few days ago....perfect!
This graphic is definitely my cup of tea!
Our kids leave Monday or Tuesday, so am adding the link, as I will be able to visit when they've headed home.
Hope your Independence Day will be wonderful!
