Tea Cup Tuesday-Cozy Spring Tea


Hello Everyone!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday with Dear Martha and me!

Spring time brings extra joys.
One is that for a few days each April,
we get a glorious view of this
blooming Japanese cherry tree.


Seems a precious place to enjoy tea today.


Isn't this a sweet springy cup?
It was a gift in a 2011 swap with dear
Tracie (of Fishtale Cottage).
Thank you again Tracie!

This cup is a Colclough. 
I recently found a stack of Colclough dessert plates,
and Tracie's cup matches the pink ones perfectly.
Yay

 made fresh from local rhubarb, very tasty.


It is especially good with fresh whipped cream
sweetened with honey and vanilla.
The honey adds a unique flavor.


I am also using one of the matching new plates.
 see the pink dessert plate in background?
I will post them soon.


It has turned cold again this past week.
We thought we had spring,
but it was just a sneak peek.

Soon.

You can visit my co host, the wonderful Martha
at Martha's Favorites

I am joining these ladies for tea this week too : )

 Sandi, Bernideen, Ruth and Kathy
(their names are links to their lovely blogs).
Thank you for hosting ladies!

I hope you are all well : )
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Terri

Good morning dear Terri
As you wake I prepare to sleep! Daylight saving here is over and is probably now just starting for you!!??

Your apple blossom is just heaven sent!
What a cosy place to sit and enjoy it Terri as you sip your tea and eat your divine scones and take in all the beauty surrounding you.

Sending Springtime love hugs,

Good Morning, Terri! I haven't thought about a tea post yet today. So it may not happen, but I had to come by and see what was up! Lovely Colcough cup -- full of spring beauty. How nice to find plates to go with. Lets cozy up with a book and some tea. Happy tea day!

Good morning dear Terri,
Your cherry tree in blossom is scrumptious! What a dreamy view in which to sit and enjoy some tea while drinking in all that beauty! Your teacup is very pretty and I love the soft pink. Scones look good too. Thank you for sharing and have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Terri! What a lovely Colclough floral teacup. I have a few teacups made by Colclough. Your scones and jam look delicious! ~ Phyllis

Bernideen said...

Yes that is a beautiful tea cup! I love your photos of it too!

Linda said...

What a perfectly delightful cozy spot to sit at with tea and a gorgeous view of the tree in bloom! Everything is so far behind in blooming here-even our forsythia bushes are barely budding yet:( But I know it will all come around eventually.

The beautiful place you sit and enjoy the cheery tree is the perfect place in the Spring. Your Colcough cup and saucer with the enameling has the beauty of the season. Yummy jam and cream make a scone so delicious. Thanks for hosting this great party!

Your tree is a most beautiful sight, I know, dear Terri- When a little girl we lived with such a tree in our garden, and I can still remember all the lovely flowers.
The plates you found looks so beautiful with your cup, and the tasty scones and jam, you made yourself.
Thank you for inviting me in .
Warm hug,
Dorthe

Hi Terri,
I love your Colclough teacup today. It is so spring like. Your pink cherry tree looks so lovely from your window. Mine isn't blooming yet. I can't wait.
Thank you for hosting with Martha again. I'm glad she's back.
Have a wonderful week!

I have that same teacup, love it! And don't you just treasure the short time we get to see all the flowering trees in bloom? they're so beautiful. Your scones look delicious!

Two Cottages And Tea said...

Such a pretty teacup and it is perfect for spring! My cherry tree won't be blooming until late May or even later! Love the idea of putting honey in your whipped cream instead of sugar. I will have to try that! Thanks for hosting and have a good week!
Hugs...Nancy

What a lovely teacup! I makes me think of my grandmother. Not that she drank tea in a cup like this, but that we always picked her flowers like on this cup and drank mint tea with her. The scones look scrumptious!

Incipient Wings said...

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi Terri,
how wonderful to find matching dessert plates to the cup. That looks so pretty and the treats make my mouth watering. I hopw, spring will be back soon. It turned cold here, too. Thank you for sharing and hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

This looks just about perfect to me, Terri. The cozy couch, the beautiful tree, the lovely combination of cup and plate, the delicious jam and the yummy scones. Wish I was there with you to enjoy such a wonderful treat.

debi said...

What a beautiful way to welcome in Spring! Such a pretty tea cup, and what a wonderful spot to enjoy it.

Felicity W said...

very nice view, did you plant the tree? i think cherry blossoms are romantic.

It is nice to get a cup from a friend cos it means something to you and whenever you drink tea from it, it reminds you of her/him.

Thanks for sharing.

Createology said...

Oh thank you for this fresh Spring sip of tea from such a lovely floral cup. The plates are wonderful with the cup and saucer. Yum to the scones with jam and cream. Now I feel I might have renewed energy to tackle my NLWM letter writings. Blissful Tea my Dear...

Carrie said...

This looks like a wonderful spring tea. Your scones look delicious! The picture window framing the sakura is a beautiful visage to look out on while having tea in your lovely teacup!
