Winter Tea Time

It is pine cone season at our house - pine cones for decorations and a pine cone tea set.  
Wintery weather is a good time for a hot cup of tea.
 All the pieces have been collected separately at yard sales, thrift shops and estate sales - yet they match very well.
 One of my favorites - shimmery and bright



Stop by for a cup of tea one of these blustery Winter days.

The pine cone decoration on the china is so delicate and fine I can see why it would be a favourite, incredible to think that you have collected the pieces from so many different places and yet they all display so perfectly together.
Thanks for getting Mosaic Monday off to such a great start this morning, wishing you a fab week ahead.

I love crafts made out of pinecones or, as my sister puts it, "pinecones with shit glued on them."

Such a delicate and beautiful tea set. I'd certainly love to serve tea with a set like that. Thank you for sharing!

The pine cone design is a favorite of mine too. I love picking up big perfect pine cones when we hike. I finally had to throw a few away last week! lol Enjoy your evening! Hugs!

As Maggie said, it is impressive that you can find pieces that match so well. A lovely motif, to be sure. Once we get in our log home, I am looking forward to assessing our tableware; maybe I can start searching for a particular theme myself!

I have a collection of tea cups, over the sixty that are in two cases, but this is one I have not yet found. Of course, I am not actively searching anymore....

I love this teaset. It would be even more perfect in Colorado! I think it is wonderful for wintertime and snowy places! Thanks so much for sharing and linking.

Pine cones make such pretty decorations and your china is no exception. A great season for a cozy tea party.

Your lovely pinecone dishes and tea cups are wonderful. I especially loved how you've styled them with real pinecones!
