Tea Tyme Equals the Letter "T"

Some of my Vintage Garden Princess House collection. I loved all their pretty tea things....sad they went the way of Pampered Chef and lost their real identity which was their pattern Princess Heritage on hand blown crystal pieces....a lost art today!
A perfect post for Ms. Jenny and the folks at Alphabe Thursday presenting the letter "T"!
My favorite electric tea kettle. I would like to trade it in for the glass electric tea kettle. Sigh.
My Tea Tyme Quilt made especially for me by Suzanne and finished by Sue. Do you how much these two beautiful ladies mean to me? I can not begin to explain. I also am in awesome of all these beautiful designs, hand created. A true masterpiece.
If you go to Foodily, Inc. you can get this simple recipe.
My cute Easter teapot I found in a thrift store for a few dollars. I love these terrific finds!
This is a Royal Stafford tea cup and saucer, produced in England.I like the black outer cup with the pretty pastel flowers. A true favorite.
A sweet google image and poem to share. Enjoy some tea and visit Beverly  too for all the delights of the  Pink Saturday peeps.

I am always missing out on great Tea Cups swaps and other fun stuff but I did not miss out on this fun giveaway shared by my sweet friend Theresa . Look at this cute candle tea lite holder she gave me. It even tells me what my name mean:

I L O V E this sweet gift. Theresa is one of my most favorite folks here in blogland. She is kind and always shares her phamily with us. She is a wonderful Christian lady and I am very honored that she would call me her friend! Thank you sweet Theresa,

I was so excited when I received my gift. This tote bag is getting to church every Sunday with me these days. It is perfect to hold my bible and note book and pen. I think it is really special.
Here is part of the goody bag that Theresa shared with me. It is so bright and cheerful. I love it because I love the cherry color of yellow too.
I like to journal and this will be great to start a new chapter in my journey we call life.
I love the tea lites wrapped so pretty in netting and I am encouraged by these words on the little easel. I am grateful for each day God gives me and I truly thank Him for all my needs.

The hand written card Theresa sent along was so pretty I am sharing it here.
It was so sweet I took three photos of it so you could see the words she wrote especially for me:
This was a great giveaway win for me because the months leading up to Easter are often very bittersweet for me and this cheered me up perfectly. Thank you again my friend. You are a wonderful friend.

I wish everyone a blessed and beautiful Easter SONday. we will be sharing it at our church during the early nine o'clock service SONday morning.

Please visit Jenny and all the Terrific T's today and stop by and say hi to Beverly and some Pinkies too!

I like your tea service sets and cups, Anne. They are really pretty. I have two, one a British red telephone booth that a nephew broke the lid for and a yellow 'Lipton' (I think) tea pot.

Your tea set is just beautiful! And oh gosh, that quilt is amazing. Imagine all the time and work that went into making it!

Your Easter tea pot is quite a find. I used to have a nice collection of china tea cups and saucers but I gave most all of them away. I think I still have one cup and saucer. Although I'm not quite sure why I kept one.

Today the weather is supposed to get up to the mid 50's. Pogo and I will make the most of it and get out and do some errands.

The weather man says there is more winter weather on its way here - snow - YUK!

Sooner or later winter will have to move on and leave us with a bit of Spring. There are lots of little green sprouts coming up in the few places where the snow has melted. So we have hope.

It's time for me to post my blog, so you have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.

LOVE that tea set! Have a blessed Thursday dear friend, HUGS!

Oh my, your quilt is beautiful, and so unique! I love the black cup -- cups with a surprise inside are fun to use -- and your tea service is so sweet!
Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend :)

I love seeing all your goodies, but the quilt is my favorite. Suzanne is still doing them. How she has time I do not know. Blessings to you and family.

Oh goodness, sweet post:) You ARE my friend and I am thankful for your friendship! I was really sweating your package delivery! Thankfully, it finally made it after traveling all over the USA:) Have a blessed day before Easter! HUGS!

WHOA, the quilt is so pretty, do you display it? It would look so pretty hanging in a dining area. We are so busy here getting ready for the Easter singing services but I wanted to touch bases and wish you a blessed Easter.

Jeanne said...

Dear Anne, I love the sweet gifts you shared and I too love to find bargains in the thrift stores. Your post is so sweet today.

Sending you Easter blessings to you and your family.

Love, Jeanne
