Tea and Roses

Since it is almost autumn I want to share a tea with you - and roses



We start with roses


My friend Julee came to visit last week.  She is from Ketchikan, Alaska, but lives nearby in Sedro Woolley.  Her friend Lynn was down visiting from Ketchikan and came along - and brought me this pretty miniature rose.


Just the perfect color to go with my Sears Cattail tea set



This dish set was made in in the early 1940s; the teapot sold for $2.98 and a cup and saucer was fifty cents




Let's have some Fresh Apple Cake with our tea











Green Bakelite handled flatware is perfect for these dishes




Come, sit, enjoy, there is tea and cake for you too




And lovely roses to scent the room

What a lovely colour the rose is. Apple cake sounds delicious but I'll pass on the tea thanks:) I'm that rare creature - a British who doesn't like tea!

Your roses match your Cattail China perfectly! I also think Apple Cat sounds wonderful fall and I so glad you shared at FST!

The tea set is very nice, but the roses are a real knockout for me. Love those striking colors! I think those would be a choice for me if I decided to plant roses (and could keep them from the nibbling teeth of the deer).

What a beautiful rose! Loved seeing your Sears Cattail tea set and hearing the price information. The cake looks great too.

The Sears Cattail tea set is unique and perfect for autumn. The roses compliment the china nicely and apple cake sounds yummy for tea today.

Hello JoAnn,
Your tea table is perfectly set for fall, and all in vintage items too! I love how well it all goes together. The roses do look lovely. That is pretty nifty cattail china!
Hugs,

Hello JoAnn
I just left a comment on your Fresh Apple Cake post!!!
The miniature rose has perfect Autumn tonings and matches your tea set.
I haven't seen Cattail China before - the painted design looks very art deco!
Nice to meet up for tea today!

I've never seen this teaset pattern before but I sure like it. It's really unique but perfect for a fall tea. And it sure was cheap back in the 40's too! The roses are such a pretty orange. A lovely tea. Blessings, Pamela

I love that tea set Jo Ann, love that quirky vintage stuff. Much nicer than stuffy antiques. And this design with the lovely bull rushes is just perfect now for the autumn.
