Well, the sun was shining today so, I thought it is time for a yellow sunshiny tea!
I must first thank the sweet and kind Miss Kitty (at Kitty’s Kozy Kitchen) for sending me a couple of packets of this yummy Eggnogg’n tea! What a tasty little treat! Thank you so much Kitty!
Today’s pretty teacup set was a gift from Troy at Christmas. The yellow roses are just so lovely and I have never seen this pattern before. It has no markings on it so, I am clueless who made it or the pattern name.
I found this creamy yellow vintage teapot at a flea market years ago. It doesn’t have a makers name on it either. I really liked the soft color and swirly design.
I am using an old white lace shawl as a table covering today.
Tea with an Actress
To an actor, every part of the performance matters; the stage set, the costume, the gestures, and the script. So it is at the tea table; The actress plays the leading role in the ceremony, and the props are all important. A lacy tablecloth would cover her table, with a vase of colorful flowers helping to set the scene, plus tempting little cakes of vivid hue and, most important of all, an ostentatious teapot for the central performance – that of the lady of the house dispensing tea and bonhomie. The teapot would be the star of the show. Like the actress, it is designed to be seen and admired.
