Teacup Tuesday



It's time for Tea Cup Tuesday, hosted by Terri and Martha.
Be sure to visit to see the tea cups on parade!

It has been raining almost everyday here.
That's good because it keeps the temperature down to 92!
It also means it's a good time to stay home, read, go through the mail and look at catalogs!
I'm going to share my shopping trip through the Old Durham Road catalog.




I have my eye on this tea and toast set and enjoyed reading the description:
"Specially designed saucer-plate to hold your toast and tea cup, with tea and toast graphics (in case you are prone to forgetting what you are doing.)"
Love it!




I like the English Cottage Tea Cozy




Ann Hathaway's Cottage Tea Pot
Ann Hathaway married William Shakespeare in November 1582, this teapot features her family home near Stratford-upon-Avon, a major tourist destination. "Thoughts of Shakespeare will pour out."
(As you can tell, just reading the catalog is entertaining. If you blink you might miss Shakespeare will pour out!!!!)




Isn't this little toile bird covered tea set cute?
It even has a strainer.




Do you need a Buckingham Palace Imperial Crown Tea Caddy?



How about a recipe book with "over 150 step-by-step recipes for delicious homemade teatime treats"?

I haven't placed an order yet, but I've had a good time letting my fingers do the window shopping!


Hope your week is cool!

Joy to You!

That bright pink-and-gold Buckingham Palace tea caddy seems better suited to Dame Edna, not Queen Elizabeth!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! And thanks for pointing us in the direction of that catalogue - I can't wait to take a few moments and browse some of the items - sounds like they have some very witty writers over there! :)

I'm following you now and look forward to more of your interesting posts - from your description of yourself, I'd say we like a lot of the same things so I'm sure I'm going to enjoy getting to know you.

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday with lots of Tea Party visitors.

I wonder what a cup of Shakespeare would taste like?

Now that is a catalog full of delights, did you order anything after all?
