Cassie and Tea

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share this beautiful pink teacup with you.
I love the big white and pink flowers.
You can see the ripples on the cup and saucer.

On my last visit to World Market, I bought the heart shaped ginger snaps.
I LOVE ginger snaps.

Apparently, Cassie likes ginger snaps, too.
With green tea!!!

Cassie has never shown any interest in my tea time photography set ups.
There is a first time for everything and it was fun to include the little lady
and NO, she didn't get my ginger snaps!

Valentine Tea
See the little pink rose (peony?) in the cup?

Wishing YOU well and a wonderful cup of tea!

I love your tea set! Maybe Cassie can have a few kibbles on a saucer still feel like a princess.

Hello Snap,
Your teacup is gorgeous! I love peonies and yours are so pretty under glaze. Cassie is adorable and she will be famous after your post today. ;) Thanks for coming by for tea.

Such a beautiful layout, the little rose/peony? inside the cup, gingersnap hearts... but most of all that dear Cassie! I grew up with a siamese and just the sight of one makes me smile and return to the 50's. Thanks for the cup of tea~

Hi Snap, Your tea cup and saucer are just stunning! I was glad to get a peek at sweet Cassie too. I see you are from Houston; that's where my daughter lives.

Irene said...

Love Cassie, and your teacup is beautiful. What is it about tea that attracts them. My cat is like that too, if I look away, his nose is in my tea, and recently into the cookies as well. My son says he's going bonkers. Have a lovely tea time.

Barb said...

What a perfect setting for Valentine Tea! I'm going to check if our World Market has any of those ginger snaps.

I was just in World Market today & missed the heart-shaped gingersnaps. I did find heart shaped chocolate mini bowls, though!! I love your teacup.

Very lovely tea cup set.

Ginger snaps and tea - mmmmmm.
I've found a new tea that I'm enjoying from a local tea shop - nothing like a lovely hot cuppa in the evening.

Johanna said...

Hi Snap,
your Cassie is a sweet little lady who enjoys her first tea party. So cute! Your tea trio is really charming and the ginger snaps look yummy, too. Thank you for this lovely tea time and give Cassie (and Theo?) a little scratch.
Best greetings, Johanna

I am not sure what is more beautiful - that gorgeous teacup set or your exquisite Cassie.

My first cat was a blue-eyed Lilac Siamese and I had him for 17 years.

He was a delicate scared jumpy kitty when we rescued he was much older than 17 years because he was full grown and we still had him for 17 y ears.

When we moved he did NOT take it well and fell ill soon after. This is where I always cry, because I think moving killed him.....but sweet DH always reminds me we had to move, and he was very old and it was his time.

I miss him still and it has been over 10 years.

Your kitty is a sweetums.

Thanks for a lovely post, though I am relieved to learn Cass didn't get your cookies!!! Haha!!!

Donna Heber said...

Hi Snap,

Your pink rose teacup is gorgeous and I think Cassie agrees with me. She is so sweet and a beautiful Siamese. Thank you for stopping to visit me.

So I see your kitties try to get into your teatimes, too! Always the way when we're in a project - and a photo project always seems to attract them! Sweet rose cups and I always loved ginger snaps - alas - no more do they like me . . .

Deb said...

Cassie would make any post more beautiful. I love the tea-cup. Peonies are gorgeous, aren't they?

Zaa said...

Your cup and saucer are simply the cat's meow...Cassie is loving your teatime ( ha Ha ) and your sweet pictures put quite a smile on my face..I love gingersnaps too , especially if they're heart shapes... Delightful post...Hugs

Brenda said...

I love your beautiful tea set today. The one rose inside the cup just melts my heart. Your Cassie is a delight during tea time! So precious! I'm glad she joined us.
Have a very beautiful day!

Terri said...

What a lovely pink tea cup set! They look like roses, but also look like they could be peonies. Very romantic cup!
Cassie is sweet, and reminds me of my Betsy who loves to get a bit of tea and nosh!

Kathy said...

Hello, We love ginger cookies too! Your Cassie looks like our Indigo! He is such a 'Garfield' type cat! But, we love him. Your teacups are gorgeous - I'd love a cup with Peonies on them! Thank you for sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
God Bless,

Cindy F. Adkins said...

Oh, I love your teacup! It's so pretty and with that little rose on the inside! I love gingersnaps with tea, too. Cats are so curious, aren't they? Mine occasionally try to stick their noses in my tea, too!
Hugs, Cindy

Sharon said...

What a beautiful cup and I can almost taste those ginger snaps from here. Plus I like the model you had in the photos. Gorgeous kitty.
