Tea Time Tuesday with Old Country Roses

I recently got a new teapot, and decided today is the day to break it in.

Perhaps you’d like to join me.

We’re going to have Boston Blend by Harney & Sons. It has  cranberries…mmm


I’ve made almond tea cake too. Help yourself to a slice.


I'm joining Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea
Also Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday.

    Hugs friend,

  17. Hello Beth
    I'm late for tea this week - spent the day at Busch Gardens yesterday.
    Amazing how a new teapot can lift one spirits, but then if you love tea like we do, it makes sense.
    Old Country Roses is such a traditional pattern, one to treasure so I'm happy you now have the teapot.
    Hope there is a slice of the tea cake left for me.

  18. Please come link up - this is a wonderful teapot.

  19. Beth,
    Always loved Old Country Roses... Wonder why I don't have any pieces for myself????


  20. Morning Beth,

  22. I enjoyed visiting your blog today. Your tablescape with OCR is lovely. I did a post last week using my OCR dishes, but I only have service for four so I'm limited to when I can use them. Your almond tea cake looks delish.

  23. What a gorgeous tea pot! I love it you have a matching table cloth! :) hm...and your almond tea cake looks just as amazing. What an enjoyable afternoon tea.


I treasure comments and read each one. Hope you enjoyed your visit to Beyond The Garden Gate!
