Denise, firstly, your header is gorgeous. I love this post. And wouldn't you know it, I am sipping a nice hot cup of tea as I read your blog. Your posts are always uplifting and enjoyable. I hope your week has been wonderful and that your weekend will be even better. :)

What a sweet sentiment. Wish I could sit down for a cup of tea with you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

quite agree! nothing like a good cuppa, I like to leave the bag in, like my grandmother prefer a good strong cup.

Love the post. We are fortunate, aren't we? to have all these blog friends that we would invite to a cup of tea if we could.

My mother has some cups just like that. I'm more of a big mug man myself.

I love the sentiment and the China. Am having a cup Irish tea as i write. So, where do I find those lovely biscuits?

I used to buy Peake Freans biscuits at the Safeway in McLean, but haven't seen them in years.

I had tea with cream and sugar for the first time when we went to England. It was fabulous and made me a fan of English style tea. However, when we got back to the US, I could never get it to taste like it did in England. Maybe I needed to have it with scones and clotted cream.

Denise, I wrote a comment earlier, but perhaps I didn't save it properly. I wanted you to know I am having my Afternoon tea, and wish i had one of those lovely biscuits. I used to buy Peake Freans biscuits at the Safeway in McLean, but alas no more.

I also love the China.

Hello Denise
That reminds me of a 'song' we used to sing that started with - Teatime teatime come and have your tea. Bread and butter cakes and jam for me me me '. There was more but Im sure you get the drift
Love the look of the fine bone china - my fingers have trouble with those handles these days lol

Mmm... tea. I have just finished one, and need another. Soon.
Love that cup - and the biscuits are inspired.

William Kendall said...

I'll have mine with an obscene amount of sugar!

I'll be pulling up my chair and joining you for a cup of tea...or maybe two :)
Beautiful china, my very favorite, and the biscuit makes me want to reach out and sneak it right off the saucer....sorry !

Denise, that looks sooooo inviting. I think I'll go fix a cup right now!

I'm on my way. Please put the kettle on. :))

A spot of tea does sound good.

Stephanie said...

Now I am wanted some tea with a biscuit! Looks enticing your image. I love dunking my biscuit into the tea. Not sure if that is proper.

funny that a poem like that would have an anonymous author
