Tea Cup Tuesday-Gypsy Tea for You and Me

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
I am sharing my Gypsy Dream blog hop post for Tea Cup Tuesday today. A little bit different, but I thought you might enjoy it.
I used a lovely blue luster cup and saucer with gold stars that seems magical to me. There are no markings on this footed cup. So we can only guess it's origin.

Welcome to my little caravan, come in and have a seat at my little table. I will pour you a cup of tea and then we shall see what we can see....

The tea is brewed in the old way, my great grandmothers recipe.....

We shall let the amber liquid steep in its pretty cup...

And talk of things.....while you drink, and then we shall see, what the leaves see for you......

Oooooh, a good cup! I see happiness....I see joy! I see only good things for you!

I am so glad you stopped by!



Creating this post has put me in the mood for Halloween! When I was a little girl, maybe 8 years old, I dressed up as a gypsy with a flowing skirt and fancy shawl. I think I can remember wearing a scarf tied around my head. I believe it may have been the first time I wore makeup.


This post is in participation with Gypsy Dreams blog hop hosted by
Celia from Adventures of the Striped Stockings. If you would like to see more of the Gypsy Dream posts just click on the name of her blog to follow the link!

Hugs,
Terri

Beautiful photos of your gorgeous gypsy tea. I love brewing loose leaf tea.

Speaking of reading tea leaves....I have been looking for a fortune telling tea cup and saucer that is proving impossible to find. Here it is... http://www.flickr.com/photos/beadsbylaura/2770652440/

It also came in pink. Even Replacements can't find it for me.
