It's strawberry time in Oregon! our favorite variety is Hoods as they are a bit sweeter. We have had some more warm weather, so that means more sweet strawberries to enjoy!

Today for Tea Time Tuesday, I was in the mood for some strawberry fun tea items.

The mailman brought me a package this afternoon, just in time for tea and perfect for my blog post today. I found this sweet tea cup on Etsy and the seller shipped it to me very quickly. The teacup was Made in England is is marked Marlborough. I love that it says Strawberry perfect is that?

The pretty saucer shows the progress of the berry from blossom to ripe berry.

I love these strawberry linens. The embroidery work is done with silk threads and is my favorite to collect.

I even found some fun stickers that I forgot I had. I like the old look of the stickers.

My daughter Gina's MIL Susan, sent me this Alaska Wild Tea. She lives in Anchorage. I thought it was the day to try it!.

My little red teapot that I found at the Goodwill last week is so perfect for my little tea time. I've been working outside today...finally getting some work done. It's quite warm, just did clean up today and will plant later in the week while it is a big cooler. Better get it done before the mid 90's that are predicted for the weekend. We actually put up our AC units today.

I'm going to start linking up with a few friends again. I haven't been very faithful about that lately.

Pop on over to Bernideen's Blog Party for some fun.
It's always a pleasant stop at Sandi's Rose Chintz Cottage.

Your Tea set up is always so sweet,I love reading and peeking in on Your perfect collections. Since My husband and I down sized several Years ago I really try not to buy more teacups and saucers....unless it's OK with Me to hide them in corners ect.I can't give them away, I still love each one.

What a find your red teapot was at the good will shop. It goes perfectly with your pretty tea cup and the sweet embroidered pretty. The tea looks delicious and how cute is that strawberry sticker. Oh....and those strawberries look tantalisingly juicy. A wonderful post filled strawberry scumptious-ness!

Hi just found your blog its delightful.
We've just had our strawberry season here in spain.
If I play my cards right when we go back to England for the summer it should it be strawberry season.
So best of both worlds.
I love your teacup one of mine is made into a pin cushion which is really handy when I'm quilting..

I love the gorgeous embroidered cloth, such a delight. Still a little early for English strawberries but there are plenty of imported ones around. I have just made strawberry jam, perfect to go with scones for afternoon tea. Take care.

Dear Linda:
Those look so yummy and fresh and sweet. I have been making suntea with loose strawberry tea and it is very thirst quenching! I've been in the yard a lot so it is perfect!

Are you paying more than $5 per pack of cigs? I buy my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 60%.
