Tea Cup Tuesday-Taking Time For Tea


 Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today was a full day, 
Half way through...a cup of tea and a small snack really revived me.
I have set my tray in front of my art room window
so I could enjoy the view.
Recently I put up new rocks and things that remind me of nature. 
If I need to be indoors most of the day,
then it is lovely to bring nature in near me.  



I must have been working too long as I got silly
and started adorning my lace stand with tea cups.


Lace and tea cups go well together.
I love to collect both!


There is something special about a vintage linen napkin with a hand crocheted edge.


When I am at an antique shop or flea market, I am always delighted
when I come across textiles....especially lace,
or any kind of needle work. 


This lovely Pegasus is sterling silver,
only just noticed that the other day!
He has the rosey glow as Sterling Silver has some copper content.
I have had him for at least a dozen year. 

He just kind of hangs around.
I think he is good luck!


Mmmmmm.....
Just the smell alone can lift my spirit!
I am thankful for tea!
and lace,
vintage jewelry,
and tea cups,
And especially YOU!

And if you too have been super busy,
I hope that you have moments of peace as well.

Thank you so much for stopping by for Tea Cup Tuesday!
I appreciate all the bloggers who host tea cup fun.

If you would like to join in here,
Just go and create a post with your tea cup in it and then come 
back here and link that post up below so we can come and visit you.

Hi Terri,
I just love how you present the cups today and putting them in a lace stand makes a perfect match.

I like lace too but somehow never start collecting, maybe one day the bug will bite me ha ha.

Have a nice week.

I'm loving all of that lace! I may have to steal that idea for this year's Senior Tea.

Terry said...

Hi Terri, love that floral cup on top, so fresh and dainty looking. I first noticed the rocks in the window though, I am a rock collector and have several of them around my home. I used to collect tea cups years ago and eventually got rid of them. I just do not have the space for collections any more.

What a gorgeous post Terri! Love the 3 tiered stand with all that vintage lace and the romantic lace.
Almost didn't fall asleep last night - so excited about starting your class! :) Today I plan to play a bit with beads and images...bezels later in the week!

Adorning your cake stand with lace and tea cups is definitely not silly. I thought it was clever and very beautiful.
Enjoy your day,

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Oh my, what a yummy post, Terri! LOVE your pretty teacups and that lace stand is scrumptious! I have a stand too but it's not nearly as lovely as this one. Your little Pegasus is adorable and looks right at home there in all that beautiful lace. Thanks for sharing so much beauty with us and for coming by for tea. Hope you have a magical day.

Blessings & hugs,

Dear Terri,
so nice to see the sunrays plaing on your tea set. What a luck spring arrived eventually. Mostly I hae my tea break when I make my weekly post. What a duty to enjoy after photographing the tea and snacks. I really love that part. Your lace stand is breathtaking beautiful. And what a creative soul you are to decorate the tea cups there. That looks so beautiful. The little Pegasus is a real treasure. Thank you for this lovely tea time and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Terri,

Oh your pictures are amazing - esp that light turquoise cup and silverplated spoon handle, swoon!

What a GREAT idea to "feature" your linens and teacups on the 3 tier, grand idea for sure!

Glad you are taking time for tea and to slow down and breathe. I think we're all a little too crazy busy lately. All I can think of is how nice a nap would be right now in front of the open window with spring breezes coming through.....

Thanks for co-hosting!

Tamara said...

I always enjoy your posts delivered to my email. One day soon I will join you for a cup of tea. I have a few treasured pieces I collected years ago. Your lace is beautiful. Love your work.

Linda M. said...

Hi Terri, I love your tea time post. The cups and laces look gorgeous. I like the shells on the window sill too. IS that natural sugar you are using? Joyous Wishes, Linda

Crazy for Tea Time said...

Hi Terri,

Tea in your workshop looks absolutely delightful. You're right, just the scent of the tea is enough to revive one's spirits--and of course, sipping it out of a gorgeous tea cup.

Thanks for the beautiful post.

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Terri, I do the same thing, bring the outdoors inside and collect little ephemeral bits of lace. Do you sometimes like to use them in your art? (Both the outdoor things and bits of lace I mean) I do. I have been super busy, like you, but your post has lifted my spirits, so thank you. Hugs to you and thank you for hosting. I love to visit all these wonderful gals. :)

Hola Terri
Nuevamente gracias por venir a tomar el té a mi humilde casa.
Precioso el encaje que nos muestras, adoro todo lo tejido con ganchillo, los encajes, las enaguas antiguas, los manteles bordados con punto cruz... tus tazas bellas.
Un beso enorme.

I'm so sorry sweet lady for not thanking you after I linked up, but here I am with my G'girls and had to go put them to bed, so I imagine that's what happened!! Oh my goodness, that lace stand is killing me..IT IS GORGEOUS and with the teacups, to die for! Yes, lace and gorgeous teacups DO go together, like in Downton Abbey! Thank you for your sweet and kind comment and I appreciate you having me at your lovely tea party.

I am absent for a long time, but I always come back with great pleasure :-)
Beautiful your collection of antique and vintage lace; among other things, for some reason, lace and tea cups are a perfect and happy marriage :-)
Lovely hugs

Here I am again, a day late and a dollar short...ha, but I always smile when I see your gorgeous photos , prettiness, lace, flowers, and bling! Thank you for the dose of cheeriness!

Scone Queen said...

What a gorgeous post. I am particularly enamored of your sterling sliver Pegasus! I might wonder what the stones are which seem to line his mane! He is gorgeous whatever his composition though! I also adored your lace and teacups! I am very fond of discovering lace doillies and lace embroidery around table cloths and napkins. They add such a touch of whimsy to everything. Regards and thank you so much for your beautiful post

Marianne C. said...

Hello, Terri,

I just love your lace stand. It's so beautiful and lacey looking. And of course all the beautiful lace adorning it are lovely. The tea cups accent them perfectly.

You are such a inspiration for taking time out for some leisure moments.

May your enjoy a delightful day of sunshine,no matter the weather.

Hello Terri Dear...My moment of peace is here and now. Sunday afternoon finally getting time to sit down at my computer and catch up. This past week has been filled with such sadness and tragedy across our nation that I am grateful for reading lovely posts like yours to lift my spirits. A spot of tea in a lovely bone china cup with a nibble or two is perfect to calm ones thoughts. Peace for our world...
