Tea Time Tuesday #163


Happy Tea Time Tuesday! One of my Tasha friends sent me a surprise package and one of the items she sent was a package of Walkers Shortbread. I love it! It inspired me to put together a few Scottish goodies for tea today. Angelia is so sweet and I am blessed to have such a sweet friend.


I was excited to share this lovely cup and saucer which I recently found at an Estate sale. It is so dainty with tiny purple thistles on it. I have always loved thistles.


This teacup is an Ansley, made of bone china and English made. I do love Ansley cups!


Of course, I do love the flowers on the inside of the cup...alway a bonus for me.


Jim found this wooden thistle shortbread mold at the same sale. I just think it's beautiful.


He also found this lovely framed print of Robert Burns. I love the shades and the oval frame.


Here's the yummy box of Walkers shortbread....yum! I did eat a couple of them and let Jim have the rest! We usually enjoy this treat at Christmas.


Tea and shortbread...now that's a yummy combination!


Of course I had to have this package of tea that another friend had given to me.


I found my little Scottish recipe book. The front cover is said to be Robert Burn's home where he was born.


I have had this little linen piece for years. I love the little Scottish guy!


I think I bought this little group of tartan plaid items about a year ago at an Estate sale. How happy to find them just yesterday when I was sorting things. The group is made up of an autograph book, a book of poems and songs and the cutest little needle pin keep.




Much to my surprise, my heather plant was blooming today! I tucked in some lavender to spread it Sout.====

I love the tartan. I like also to watch films about Scottish locks. There I was never and I'm really sorry. Your gadgets are sweet. Beautiful and so delicate cup. I am greeting warmly.

What a lovely Scottish collection. I loved the thistle cup and saucer, such a beautiful pattern. It was a joy to see now that I am living on a Scottish Island.

Wonderful Scottish post! I usually do one in January for Burns birthday, but it's wonderful to see tartan and a Scottish theme anytime! A great collection!
