Tea For One



Tea for one -  -  -


A hand painted teapot, cup and saucer 

Pretty flowers for a hand painted tea set

It becomes a teacup and saucer - and a little teapot

Just right for an afternoon tea

 Flowers always make a tea table so pretty.  .  . 









Add a pretty hand crocheted tablecloth.  .  .

An embroidered napkin and a crystal napkin ring.  .  . 

The perfect tea set for a summer cup of tea.

So pretty JoAnn - and I am enthralled by the crochet tablecloth as I collect them. No-one seems to want these old cloths these days and yet hours of care and love went into their making. I only use mine on high days and holidays and I always make a special effort with the china and the scones!

A beautiful tea for one, JoAnn! I love having a special little tea set just for my own and yours is very special, indeed! Such a pretty setting with the beautiful crocheted cloth and embroidered napkin. This would make anyone feel special! Hugs, xoxo

Tea for one sets are so practical; sometimes I pack one in my suitcase when I visit the grands. Yours is very pretty.

What a charming little set. I think we should all take time like that for a cup of tea and maybe a little daydreaming.

Your tablecloth is absolutely beautiful, as well as your whole lovely table-scape. I'm very happy to have found your blog.

Such a pretty tea for one pot. I've got a few of these and love using them. Even if a friend comes for tea, I can use one for each of us, especially if we have different teas.

Hi JoAnn, good for you to sit down and enjoy a cup of loveliness for yourself. I do that all the time. We deserve it, don't we. We had a lovely weekend here and now it's back to the rain again and an afternoon with a beautiful tea cup just about makes the sun shine, doesn't it? Hugs my friend, and have a good week. :)

What a cute tea-for-one set! I started collecting them awhile ago because they are very practical when you have several folks in and they all want their own special tea. Your linens are lovely. Thank you so much for sharing and coming to tea. Have a wonderful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

That does look like the perfect tea set for a summer cup of tea! The details are amazing, hand painted things are so valuable and beautiful <3

Funny, I have a tea for one tea set "on display" for Teacup Tuesday over at my blog ;)

I just love that tea pot and the tablecloth. A lot of work in that.
