A Lovely Tea Cup

Good Monday to everyone!  We have another beautiful sunny day!

Today I want to show you a sweet little teacup that a blogging friend who lives in my city, just a few blocks from me actually, gave me.
Millie, from Wreathmaker, invited me over for tea last Monday.

While there, she gave me a little gift, it was a turquoise teacup!

She had noticed that I was adding turquoise to my decor and she she so kindly added to it.
Isn't it gorgeous!?  It is an English made Foley China.  Thank you, dear Millie, I enjoy it every time I look at my sideboard now!

I put it on my pedestal plate to show it off better.

 This is the table that Millie laid out, see her beautiful bouquet?  She grew these flowers in her own garden that she showed me around.  It was a hot day, but it was so lovely and peaceful out in the garden.  To see more of her flowers go to Wreathmaker.

We enjoyed some delicious English Scones that she made, with whipping cream, real butter, strawberries and peach preserves.  Oh my, it was so delicious.  I always enjoy visiting with this sweet friend, and not just for the treats and tea, which I love, but because she is a truly delightful lady. 

Have a lovely day my friends and I hope it isn't too hot for you, wherever you are!

I am joining Nita for Mod Mix Monday!

Oh...I love that little turquoise cup. But oh...the strawberries and delicious that looked. I really do love the touches of turquoise and red you've added to your sideboard. I'm usually not a red person but mix it with some turquoise and I'm in love. I love a turquoise and red Christmas.

Cindy the tea at Millie's looked so charming and delicious! I love scones and tea, It was so thoughtful of her to give you this darling turquoise tea cup as a gift. It looks so pretty on your sideboard. I wish I lived near a fellow blogger as it must be fun to compare blogging ideas and tips over tea!

Betty said...
