Autumn Pics with Tea Theme

Many of you adore all things tea related
and I am no exception!

So today I thought I'd put together a post with some
 of my favorite autumn pics with tea themes in them.

For no other reason save sharing some
 pretty eye candy
 on such a lovely fall day.

I have been so blessed to have such
lovely autumn china.

I have been collecting fine tea china for many years.

But I love autumn so much I also tend to buy 
hardy ceramic cups in warm fall colors, too!

They're always my cups to grab-
along with my jacket and wool throw
when enjoying a cuppa on the last
 of the nice cooler weather outdoors.

Our covered patio is the perfect place for a hot cuppa, a good book,
prayer time or just a respite from all things electronic.

It's essential we unplug and unwind sometimes.

Most of my collections or tea things you've already seen
 in one varying form or another.

I do forget what I have shared sometimes, 
so do find it in your hearts to forgive me, please
as I know I do regurgitate duplicate pics.

And wonderful tea things I have been happily gifted,
such as this perfect birdie teacup from last year's
teacup exchange hosted by Stephanie of the blog
The Enchanting Rose.

We will be posting about this autumn's recent swap soon
so be watching for all the hoopla!

I was also gifted this amazing artisan made
 ceramic turkey teapot that I posted about here

I haven't hosted a nice afternoon tea luncheon in much too long.
I am long over-due.....but am just a wee bit too tired to do it.

I need to remedy that - and soon!

Even a plain and simple everyday mug
 looks nicer placed in a simple vignette.

As always, thank you so much for your visit!

Hugs and prayers!


PS: If you missed my last post about my
sweet little grand daughter visiting a pumpkin farm,
 be sure to go check out her cuteness here!



  1. Luv your tea photos. Happy Mosaic Monday

    much love

  2. Michele you have a wonderful collection of tea time treasures, the autumn ones are delightful, and your seasonal mosaic is lovely. I would really enjoy sitting outside enjoying a cuppa with you one day.
    Happy Mosaic Monday.

  3. Beautiful Michele, and you know I love all things Tea!
    You give the best Tea Parties! Sure would love to live close!

  4. I always love seeing your tea on your beautiful zen room, Michele! Your china and sturdier pieces are much admired by me. I sure hope to one day have tea with you again. Love and blessings to you, dear friend.
    p.s. Is the Harney and Son Cranberry Autumn blend a yummy one?

  5. You are all set for whatever Autumn may bring! Loved seeing all your Autumn tea-scapes. The turkey teapot made me laugh -- love it! I'm with Kitty, I'm intrigued by Harney and Son Cranberry Autumn blend! Happy Monday!

  6. Such a feast for the eyes, a joy to visit.

  7. Wonderful array of colorful teapots and cups. So when you host your tea party we all will show up!!!

  8. Your collection of autumnal dishes is very pretty. I especially like the set in the photo just before the bird teacup. An autumn tea party would be lots of fun, but I know it takes energy and time, both of which seem to be in short supply around here, too. Have a good week!

  9. Hi Michele,

    You certainly have a lovely teatime collection of autumnal motifs and colours, all perfect for a seasonal tea party. What beautiful bouquets of fall flowers in your mosaic!

    Have a wonderful week,

  10. Love it.. love those autumn theme cups..

  11. Your autumn colors are so warm.....just like your incredible personality.

  12. What a beautiful post, love all your tea items. Your patio is so inviting to sit a spell. We need to do that more. However, it is so bloody hot here that I am staying in doors.

    Glad to see your post, take care my friend. I need to do a post soon, it's been to long.


  13. How lovely to see all these beautiful fall tea things grouped together so fetchingly! (And I don't care if there happen to be any repeats. The way my mind is so overfull these days, I wouldn't remember them from the first time anyway, ha!) I'm glad you mentioned being open to the heartier ceramic pieces in the fall. I feel that way too!

  14. Your pretty season teawares are just what I needed to see on this rainy Monday.

  15. I love the colors of Autumn and they make the most beautiful decorations in our homes. You have some perfect tea cups and mugs. I need to change mine soon and use something different! Hugs, Diane

  16. Beautiful! I enjoyed your Autumn tea time...two of my favorite things. Sometimes you just have to sit & look at pretty things. You have an wonderful collection, Michele.

  17. I am new to your blog, and if this post is anything to judge from, I will be back. The colors in your shots are rich and warm - oozing charm. Your patio is welcoming, so please do schedule that tea soon - I will take the shortbread, please!

  18. Oh I love them all - especially the one with the berries and autumn leaves - and the birdie - and - oh I just love them all. I don't mind if you duplicate photos - I enjoy seeing them any time - though I can't remember seeing any of these before, so it was great fun to go through all of them. Happy week ahead my dear.

  19. Love your tea cup collections and that metal teapot. It’s always good to see you do a post. I hope all is well.

  20. Very pretty pictures. Not as cute as the last ones you shared of that adorable grand daughter though. HAHAHA!!

    1. I just can't wait until she's attending tea parties with her Grammie - won't that be such FUN????? ♥♥

  21. How lovely! 🍁You know your way around a tea time vignette! (BTW, I fixed the commenting problem yesterday. I am so happy that I am easily commenting again. And, yes, it was my fault.)

  22. Michele, your collection of china is delightful! I like a sturdy mug now and then myself especially in the cooler months. I too share repeats but I don't think anyone really minds. We tea and china lovers just enjoy seeing what we have to share. Your vignettes are wonderful. I'm especially fond of your Bittersweet??, berries pieces! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by for a visit. Enjoy your day, my friend.


  23. Just a beautiful post I thoroughly enjoyed!


  24. Beautiful tea cups. I love to have them...

  25. I think that first cup and saucer is my favorite! Though they are all so pretty. Your porch looks like such a peaceful place! I hope to one day live in a climate where I can enjoy the outdoors year round and not just a few months out of the year haha!

  26. Hello Michele, your tea set and china are just beautiful. What a lovely collection. I like the cup with the little birdie and the owl in the background. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a happy day!

  27. Gorgeus pictures! And beautiful tea sets. xxx Maria

  28. Michelle you are back!!! I am SO happy. I love this post. It is so cozy and inspiring. I am hosting a blogger tea in November I think I MUST add a pumpkin to my sugar cubes. Did you make those? If so spare no detail. :) Missed you my friend!

  29. You have such a beautiful collection of tea cups and teapots, and your cozy porch spot looks like the perfect place to enjoy using them!

  30. Oh, my eye caught that lovely old-fashioned teapot and cup in the upper right hand corner of your collage. So pretty! Yes, enjoy these beautiful days. The temps are supposed to drop here and there's snow in the forecast in the U.P. But I'm loving these cooler temps, and soon it will be time for a cozy fire. Now going to check out your previous post. xo Deborah

  31. I loved your falldecor, teacups, tea-things, and pretty vignettes! I always enjoy visiting your blog!

  32. Hi Michelle...I love all you fall decor. Perfect! Hope you manage to have a few more in your patio...getting a bit too cool here. Have a lovely week and thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea

  33. Oh, eye candy for sure! Lovely tea vignettes and I can just imagine sitting on your lovely patio enjoying a delicious cup of tea right now. Sending hugs xo Karen

  34. Michelle,
    You have beautiful pieces for Fall and they look lovely how you displayed them...
    Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!!

  35. I enjoyed my virtual teas with you (this post and the one above) so much; thank you for inviting me!
