Lovely Autumn Tea Time



Oh, yes, it is blustery and getting cooler every day!

The days are getting shorter and the shadows are getting longer.


~~~~~*~~~~~



This is perfect tea sipping weather-
and the perfect time to bring out my very favorite
Autumn china.








Won't you take a moment to sit a spell with me
 and enjoy our tea time together?










I stuck a little autumn candle favor in the tea cup just for you!











Can you smell the aroma
 of cinnamon and orange infused tea
in our china tea pot?










And you know  how much I love my themed sugar cubes-
you have seen them before, I buy them when I am able!

They make a simple little tea more special!

And who doesn't love to use special embroidered napkins?









"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
~Albert Camus




"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree."
~Emily Bronte




“Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile.”
~William Cullen Bryant







        Thank you for joining me for tea today!




~Michele

  29. Oh my, I hope you have enough of the autumn china for the dinner this weekend - it's very nice Michele. I was going to ask if you made the sugar cubes, then read that you buy them. They're very easy, and fun to make using a small decorating tip. Do you find the icing comes off and floats in the tea? This sometimes happens and doesn't look too appealing but they are nice to have for the presentation.
