Tea on Tuesday

As I sit here awaiting the arrival of my mini donkey, I remembered I had to post for tea!! So, I am preposting this on Monday night (sshhhh!), because if little Yoshi arrives on time - I will be very busy on Tuesday!! Fingers crossed!!!

So, if you will forgive me for taking the easy way out - I will again post some shots from Tumblr- all tea related- Tumblr is an endless source of amazement and inspiration for me! (For photo credits, please visit Tumblr)

Pottery, teacups and cubbies galore!! I love it!!!!

     A Harry Potter-esque artist creation- not sure I could actually drink tea coming out of this!!!!!!

But, I definitely could take tea from this gorgeous hibiscus teapot!!!!

Below, a collection from one of my all time favorite pottery designers- Clarice Cliff- I want them all!!

And for the inner upper crust in all of us-
Please drop by for tea any Tuesday - see Patty and Kim for a list of other tea fanciers!!


  1. Interesting!
    Any idea what the lower level dish on the Fabrege table is for? LOL Is it a dog bowl?

  2. I love what Gene said about that dish being a dog bowl! For some little pekingnese dog i am sure! I can't imagine anyone serious about their tea using that silver tea set though. Only for dainty sipping here and there until the tea quickly becomes stone cold! And that hairy teapot! Some people have so much imagination! I may have to check out tumblr sometime soon :)

    Happy Yoshi day! xoxo, Kimmie

  3. What a beautiful array of tea cups, and leave it to a guy to come up with a dog bowl among all the tea things. Lennie

  4. What a lovely share of tea pots & cups. Had to chuckle over the dog bowl.

    Have a beautiful week ~
    TTFN ~
