Autumn Tea

Autumn is here - winds are howling - leaves are flying about - let's enjoy a cup of  tea.
We start with roses

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 - oh for those prices these days.


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

The Cattail tea set is unique and very modern looking with its clean graphics. Roses, tea and apple cake sound like a great way to spend time on these blustery days. We had a bit of a reprieve from the rain this afternoon, but another system is moving in tomorrow. Stay warm and cozy.

Joanne, I love that teapot and teacup! I have never heard of that pattern before. Those prices made my head swoon! They are just perfect for a fall tea. Thanks for sharing with SYC. I will be featuring you tomorrow.
