A Small Tea...


Spring feels like a time for small things...


mix match china,
clustered on a small platter...

easy for a spot of tea
at in impromptu picnic...


the best spring flowers are the smalls,
easily displayed in a creamer...


my teacup is not so small,
but the little teapot is...

really only suitable
for a warm up...


even though the mug lacked the petite qualities
of the other pieces...

I couldn't resist
it's casual spring pattern...



a pair of bite size cookies,
just a nibble...



a nook...

to laze away
a bit of time at the end of the day....



soaking in the sweetness of
small things...


Today I am sharing tea with...

Thanks for sipping with me today...

Hi Bella
So glad you joined in for tea this week. Very pretty table setting with petit flowers and cookies.
We're having a gentle rain today which is much needed.
Have a great week.

What a pretty tea, Bella! Perfect for one but enough to share if a friend stops by. And I love that you understand the prettiness of "smalls" at this time of year. The first nosegays of the season are here and there throughout my little cottage: violets, myrtle and lily of the valley in salt shakers on the windowsill. Take care!
