Tea Time Thursday #20

Happy Tea Time Thursday! Summer is moving right along and the weather has cooled down a bit, so I am happier. I am still coughing just a bit but I am finally just about over this bug. Yeah!

I love Shelley tea cups. Until recently, I didn't have one in my tea cup collection. We were at a sale and Jimmy made a deal with the lady and we brought home a few. They are so beautiful and I love the scalloped cup.

Lovely tea cup ladies in their very finest!

Tiny pink rosebuds with a soft green handle.

Sprays of dainty flowers with a soft pink handle.

 Very hard to pick a favorite.

We are lucky to have many ethnic markets in the Portland area. Jimmy and I like to visit a Russian market that has the best candies, teas and tea time goodies. The owners are so fun and always give us something to try or enjoy. I love all their different teas. This is a loose leaf fruit tea from Poland. I think it will make a great iced tea for summer.

We watched a very beautiful movie the other night....Howards End. I don't know how I missed this one, but I'm so glad I finally got to watch and enjoy it. The costumes are exquisite and the photography is stunning. It's based on a 1910 novel by E M Forester.

Some of my favorite actors and actresses makes for a great film. The documentary was also really interesting.

This is a real home that was used in the movie....this is Howard End. The home plays a big part in the movie. It just looks like a Peter Rabbit house to me.

Just makes you want a cuppa!

The teacups are so dainty and beautiful. I especially love the one with the soft green edging. I recently discovered a little Russian import store near us and want to go check it out. Our daughter just happens to be dating a young man who is originally from Russia. I LOVED Howards End and have seen it at least 10 times. Emma T. is my favorite actress.
