A Rose Tea Celebration



Today is a special day.
Sandi is celebrating the third birthday of her Tea Time Tuesday Party
with a special rose party.

I have shared both of these teacups and roses with you before,
but I thought they were perfect for Sandi's celebration.


The first is an Elizabethan Fine Bone china tea cup with a rose from the balcony garden.

Tea and Roses


This is a Paragon teacup with a rose from Musashi's Garden.

Tea and Roses


One of my favorite rose quotes:
"I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall."
Eleanor Roosevelt 


And, this quote for Sandi:
"But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold."
Oliver Wendell Holmes 

Sandi, thank you for being our tea friend!

Thank you to our tea party hosts:


Wishing you well, much joy and a fine cup of tea!

Your teacups are really beautiful! I own a costume jewelry watch (vintage) that supposed belonged to Eleanor Roosevelt. Even if it doesn't - I love the story.
