Tea Time Thursday #17~Another Paragon Beauty


It's been a bit chilly and wet the past few days. Gardening has been put on hold for awhile but the rain has been welcomed, especially by the grass. A few days of showers and the grass greens up!


The flowers are really quite pretty right now with many things in full bloom. Our early spring did cause somethings to bloom early. I love this time before the heat takes it toll on the flowers.


 I have used this little pillow before, but I do love it and it's saying. Do you enjoy gardening?


Vintage advertising items are always fun....flowers were often used and don't you love the basket of pansies.


I decided to take a little tour of my flowering plants in between rain showers. I just love flowers!
You can see some of the rain drops on some. I had to snap quickly between down pours when I was outside.

Enjoy a little virtual tour of my lovelies....








It is Tea Time Thursday and the weather makes it very inviting to have a warm cup of tea.
I adore Paragon cup and saucers. Here's another one Jim found at a recent sale. I think this one is so pretty. It's called Lilac and the little blue bow is hand painted. You can feel the raised paint that was added. The colors are so soft and dainty.





It makes a perfect mate to the sweet pink one I featured a couple weeks ago. The same blank was used for both cups.


I never get tired of looking at tea cups~even my own! I don't mind a bit of rain here in Oregon. We have such nice weather compared to so many across the America right now. I hope all of you are OK.

Linda, the lilac teacups is sooo pretty! And all your garden flowers are beautiful! I do enjoy gardening. It is so therapeutic to dig and get ones hands in the dirt, and then to be able to see the fruits of your labor is overwhelming.

Hello, hello! I tried to leave a comment for you several days ago and for some reason Blogger would not let me! Love all your beautiful flowers, Linda. Yes, I do enjoy gardening and here in SO Ca we can plant so many things year round. I planted two sets of gladiolus bulbs so they will bloom in sessions. Love the photo with raindrops on the petals. Your Paragon cup is elegant! Have a wonderful weekend :)

Hi Linda, thanks for stopping by my blog and saying Hello! I am always on the lookout for new blogs to follow and I think yours is one I will enjoy.
I love those tea cup and saucer sets. They remind me of my grandmother's hand painted ones of which I only have a saucer.
Have a great Sunday!
Cindy
