Welcome To Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today I am sharing a sweet pair in
a well known pattern, Old Country Roses.
Old Country Roses has comes out in many different versions over the years.
Here we have an everyday style tea cup and saucer.
The signature Red, yellow and tiny pink rose bud is the same,
but the pretty fresh green trim is the most contemporary touch I have seen in this pattern.
The colors are really vibrant!
The pattern style is Casual Classics, by Royal Albert.
Now the teapot, it is a different version of Old Country Roses.
The same exact floral pattern and color, but the trim is now a lovely sponged gold.
It does have a cute spout
And a very sweet handle!
Love the gold topped lid...and here you get a great shot of me too! lol!!!
Time for some tea....
a nice aromatic blend of peppermint, spearmint,chamomile, rose, lemon balm, and lavender.
Add some local sweet golden honey....mmmmm delicious!
My tiny garden is braving the cold night temps...
and here is a small harvest I brought in this afternoon.
I saw Michaela at The Gardener's Eden, share this tip on Pinterest for preserving herbs....
Wash and chop up herbs....add to olive oil and spoon in ice cube trays or,
like I did, in mini heart muffin cups.
You could add in salt and garlic too if you wanted.
Put the tray in to the freezer and let them get hard,
Transfer to a baggie to store in the freezer for handy seasonings!
Delicious little hearts of flavor I can add to my cooking this holiday season...
...that will bring the fresh taste of summer.
