Last Teacup Tuesday in January

Before I get on with my TeaCup Tuesday I thought I would show you the pretty Cardinal I saw up in one of our Apple Trees this morning.  With no leaves on the tree he really stands out.  He looks quite proud I think!

This is the final Teacup Tuesday for January. Because I still have quite a few Tea Books I have decided to show one tea cup and saucer and one book each week until the books are finally all shown.

After you visit my site be sure to visit the others at

ALSO: Rose Chintz Cottage

Today I am sharing a tea party book I just bought this weekend....  at a flea market on Saturday morning.  I was pleasantly surprised to find one I don't already have.

This lovely book is written by Patsy Clairmont.  She talks about tea, speaking of a different pace, a genteel grace, a still moment, a quiet thought....  (from the back cover)  The book itself is talks about many of the various elements of tea, tea parties and lots of other things that having tea represents.  There are some lovely photographs that are from her house.  And she has a few really good sounding recipes such as Cream Scones and Pound Cake with Lemon Curb.  I will have to try them.  The book was published in 1997 so don't know if it readily available but maybe you will get lucky if you find it at a yard sale or flea market.  You just never know!

I recently purchased a large amount of Tea Cups and Saucers from a lady who is down sizing.  I was so pleased she offered them to me to sell in my shop.  I have already sold several but will try to show some of the ones I still have available in my shop.

I  like the crisp look of the blue and white flowers.  Nice for a January Day.  I hope you enjoy it.

  Join me again next week for another cup and another tea book!

Hi Beth,
That is a lovely teacup; a sweet pattern! I wish I had more blue and white as I really like it. I'm always happy to see another tea book too. Thanks for joining me for tea.
