Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




Last week I told you about Tea & Friendship Tuesday hosted by Carol from Charli & Me. This is a fun post that can be filled with lovely afternoon tea and/or friendship related items. Here is your chance to share your lovely tea adornments, a favourite tea or friendship related poem or quote, a delicious recipe or a combination of all of the above.

This week I am happy to report that I have joined yet another tea group. Tea Things Tuesday is hosted by Kim from Shabby Pink & Pretty. Kim and her tea loving ladies enjoy sharing tea related photos, poems, recipes and much much more.

If you would like to join us, please contact Carol here and Kim here.


"Come, little cottage girl, you seem
to want my cup of tea;
and will you take a little cream?
Now tell the truth to me."

She had a rustic, woodland grin,
Her cheek was soft as silk,
And she replied, "Sir, please put in
A little drop of milk."

These lovely roses are for you my friend.
Love, Hugs & Tea
Duchess

Darling, what positively scrumptious treats you're serving today! And the poem is lovely!

Tea Things Tuesday? What a marvelous meme! I might alternate it with Tombstone Tuesdays.

Have a great day!
