Thinking of You Tea Time

I have a simple pretty little tea vignette 
using a beautiful old hand painted 
china teacup I have shared before.

And the quilted teacup card is from my sweet tea society friend Dawn.

I think they go nicely together, don't they?

(Teacup and card, tea and Dawn!)

We'll take a light reprieve from the stress of the day
 with hot tea and some crunchy cookies.

It's snowing again outside, so let's light a fire 
to keep us cozy warm, too, ok?

Pizelles are so nice because they keep so nicely
 and are just the perfect compliment with tea, 
 when one is feeling a mite "peckish"
 without spoiling one's dinner appetite.

We eat them often, seems I have shared a few of
them lately. Each post's baker was someone different.

These are made by my MIL who truly is the
VERY best cookie maker - no matter what kind of cookie-
in the entire world.  At least to us.

(And I bet you would think as well, too!)

I will be taking a blogging break because tomorrow morning
 I am having some more surgery....nothing to be concerned about
so don't go worrying, ok?

I will miss you all so much, and will be back in the saddle
 to read your awesome posts soon!

Addendum: Surgery went well and am recuperating nicely,
Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes!
I'm not able to be on pc much but will try to comment as much as possible. Thanks for understanding!  -M.

I wish you all joy, laughter, good health, love,
 sunshine, and lots of wonderful & peaceful tea times.

God bless.

As always, thanks for your visit.

Till we meet again,

  10. Hi Michele. I have always thought of that lovely teacup as a European Midnight Rose. Lovely I hope your surgery goes well..I'll be praying for you...and look for yours swift return. You will be missed in your absence! Take care! Thanks for linking to Thursday Tea Things And Talk.

  11. Hi Michele
    The best way to describe your lovely teacup I think is 'delicate' and I love the card propped up there. Was it received by you from a special friend? And, I see your tea angel too, a charming vignette my friend.
    Do have a speedy recovery, you know you'll be missed and I'll say a prayer for all things to go well for you.

  12. That is a beautiful tea cup Michelle!
    Now, just as I come back to the blogging take a break...go figure!
    all kidding take care of yourself during your little break...I'll be praying all goes well with a quick recovery, and we will all be patiently awaiting your return!
    God Bless you!

  13. Praying all goes well tomorrow,Michele, will be thinking of you. Love your teacup vignette.


  14. So pretty and dainty. Your card in the background is a favorite company of mine and "local" for me.
    My prayers are with you....a speedy recovery is my wish and prayer for you.

  20. Oh Michele, no surgery is nothing to worry about. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love your little tea cup and the card goes so perfectly! I love Pizelles, but have never made them.

  21. Dear Michele,
    Good luck with your surgery and I hope everything goes well. Love your pretty teacup. Take care.

  22. Just now catching up on some blog reading, and I trust your surgery went well and that you are recovering A-OK! (Just said a little prayer, since you can never be over-prayed-for, right?) I love that teacup and card. I can't tell you how many times I've seen that card and thought oh, I MUST have that quilt pattern, only to realize it wasn't a pattern but a card. So, so pretty!

  23. Michelle,

    Just checking on you! So happy to hear you are doing better!

    Happy, happy week to you.


  24. Glad to hear your surgery went well, you will need a cup of tea as you recoop. Your teacup is such a beautiful shade of blue and yes the card is perfect with it. I must admit I have never had Pizelles so I must find some and see how they taste. Take care my friend, and get better.

  25. Michele!! I just received an unbelievable box of gifts....I haven't been able to stop saying, OMG. I have just opened it and started to peek at all the goodies. I have to run Lucie to Ice skating and CANNOT wait to go through everything. I have to be in my Pj's with my tea and the kids tucked in bed. I am completely blown away and ecstatic!!! Best thing that has happened to me in ages! Was it you??? Was it you???

  27. Gad to hear you're on the mend! But any surgery is a GRAG! Get better quick! I love your pretty teacup and that gorgeous card. I sometimes buy cards to keep as art, and that one's a keeper!
