Teatime Photography, Illustrations and Tablescape

Tea, I love tea, teacups, tea sets, teaspoons, teapots and everything that is served with tea.  I found a wonderful post that I enjoyed from Downton Abbey Cooks.  The post is called Downton Abbey Coooks Online Guide to Afternoon Tea.

How about a little Cole Porter while you browse.

Tea, so many ways to illustrate a beautiful teacup.

So many lovely recipes to serve with tea.

So many ways to photograph a teacup.

And set the table for tea.

I love the cakes, sandwiches, and scones too.

I love tea parties, and Sandi from Chintz Cottage is hosting her Tuesday Tea, so I thought I would join Sandi today.

And because I think you're the top!  As kindred spirits who enjoy tea, if any of my artwork speaks to your heart, please take it home for your personal use.

Oh delightful, Karen! And, yes, now I must go make a pot of tea. I am way too suggestible.

I enjoyed seeing all your artwork and the tea table looks like it is just waiting for guests to join you.
I too like the finger sandwiches, scones and tiny sweets and could likely eat them every day with tea!

Hi Karen, what a lovely post! The images that come to mind when envisioning a tea party are so full of friendship and warmth and calm! We should all make it a regular practice if it isn't already!
Thanks for sharing the great images!
