Changing of the Gloves...

I was spending another day
 in the garden weeding...
when I realised what day it is!
Tea Tuesday!

(click photos to enlarge)

So I hung up my garden gloves...
got out the nail scrubber :-)


and...
grabbed my pretty ladies gloves...


It's Tea Time..
Time to join all my blogging friends for a cup,
a little treat,
and some chatting...


I  brought my tray out to my favorite place today,
if you would like to see my post about my favorite place

I used my pretty new rosy cup...
I bought it this weekend at a garage sale.

It didn't have a mate
so I paired it up with this sweet pink plate
I think they look happy together:-)


The teacup is made by Adderley...


I grabbed some lemon bread at the bakery
and some fresh strawberries.

I think Tea Tuesday is Mike's favorite blog day,
he always has a sweet little treat
packed in his lunch:-)


A tiny bouquet of Ballerina Roses,
made it perfect..
to me:-)

Today I am joining a few of lovely parties!

Marty at A Stroll Thru Life

That is a Lot of Tea and Treats

Hi Bella :) Most definitely the perfect setting to enjoy a cup of tea. And what a beautiful cup you found! Perhaps one day you will find it's made, but until then, the sweet plate you've paired it with looks just perfect :) Oh, and love your pretty ladies gloves!

Happy Teacup Tuesday

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Bella, I love the lacy gloves with the flowers on and the cup and saucer make a pretty pair.
When I was prepping my strawberries I thought one would look nice floating in a glass of wine for a photo but that wouldn't do before/after our tea....or would it? :-)

Your new teacup is a treasure and it looks lovely with the little plate you had it on. I would not have guessed they weren't a set.
