#TeacupTuesday Favourites September 2017

SEPTEMBER, a month of absolute contrasts here in New England. It was absurdly hot some days,  though there were signs of Autumn temps sneaking in a few days in the month.

Still, every day was perfect for tea. I have been quietly enjoying Harney & Sons Cinnamon Sunset Black tea with orange and cloves. It is sumptuous and rich and I think a lovely afternoon tea for the Autumn. The notes of cinnamon and clove really awaken the senses. My husband says it smells like Christmas every time I drink it.  I  recommend that it is brewed as instructed, and drunk from a bone china teacup. Have you tried it ?

And so like the weather, my picks for this month are varied. From collections displayed as part of milestone birthday celebration, to an Alice in Wonderland teacup.

Here are my #teacuptuesday favourites for the month of September 2017.

Do you have a favourite ?

Ahoy Mateys! Happy Teacup Tuesday perhaps washed down with a bottle of rum me hearties 😉 •••••••••••••••••••••••• Goodness where to start!? We had a fun afternoon at the grand opening of the new Hamburg Inn location. If you're ever in Iowa City, I definitely recommend eating there and don't forget a pie shake! 😊 And then we walked, sang, and shouted for our elementary school in the City High parade. I love this town! ••••••••••••••••••••••••• I'll talk more about this next Tuesday but on Saturday when I flew into Chicago from LA I decided to go enjoy afternoon tea before driving home. What a delightful treat! Also after navigating LA freeways and inner city Chicago without any mishaps, I feel like I can do anything haha! •••••••••••••••••••••• I want to give a shout out to my sweetheart of a friend Bonnie. You count yourself lucky if you have a close friend like Bonnie. Only a week out from surgery and still very much recovering, she didn't even hesitate when I asked if I could stay with her for a week. We definitely didn't get to spend as much time together as we would've liked because of work but I think we treasured the time we did have. -I think some of my favourite moments were wearing my heels to the grocery store but bringing flats just in case and her three year old did the same, brought her sparkly shoes and some plain ones just in case. 😂 -All the kids waiting up for me and showing off the night I got there. -Spending time in the kitchen together. -Introducing me at church as her dear friend. -Our wonderful relaxing beach day. Being able to be myself and chat for awhile but also not feel bad for dozing off for a bit in the sun. -The drive home, picking out songs for Bonnie and her husband to guess. Whoever guessed the song title first, won. Such giggles! -Playing Anomia the night before I left with Bonnie, her dad, and her husband Spencer. The howls of laughter and fun just warmed my heart. I love that girl. She's one of my special ones. ❤️ •••••••••••••••••••••• How has your week been? Do anything exciting? Let's chat in the comments! 😘

#TEACUPTUESDAY FAVOURITES AUGUST, 2017

AUGUST ….Yet another wonderfully busy month. So busy that I forgot to post my favourite teacups.  As I’m sitting here sipping the most delicious cup of Yorkshire Tea… I wonder if I’ve just been having too much fun hunting for new teacups while in London ! Can you blame a girl… ?!

The British Summer weather has been on the up. Lots of sunshine ! (I wish you could see the huge smile on my face ). I have been frequenting my local car boot Sunday sale in Pottersbury. I always find such fun things there. It holds a special place in my heart as it’s where I found most of my teacups for my wedding a few years ago.

So yet another wonderfully busy month. But do not despair, here  are My #teacuptuesday favourites for the month of August 2017.

Do you have a favourite ?

Tea. Always.

Happy Teacup Tuesday lovelies! I finally got my hands on a new product called @criobru! I heard great things about this cocoa bean brew from Tom Taylor @thosgreentaylor and have been dying to try it out. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I can't buy it around here so I made a note to purchase some Crio Bru in Utah and then I was so busy I forgot, gah! They're running a free shipping promo right now so I figured I'd just order some, not a big deal. Fast forward to the drive back to Iowa. We stopped in Aurora, Nebraska to watch the total solar eclipse. As we were shopping for breakfast items in their tiny grocery store-seriously, it was grocery, craft, and hardware rolled into one haha. I noticed out of the corner of my eye some Crio Bru Kcups in the clearance section. Only problem was I don't have a Kcup machine and I wasn't going to buy one. But then I had a thought, if they were selling Kcups, maybe they also sold packages of it! Walked on over to the coffee section and woohoo- @criobru!!! ••••••••••••••••••••••••• Long story short, picked up two packages of this exciting cocoa bean drink in a random middle of nowhere town Nebraska! Also, this isn't an ad but if @criobru wants to send a couple extra packages to try, I certainly wouldn't be opposed haha! 😁If you like dark chocolate then you'll enjoy @criobru!

#TEACUPTUESDAY FAVOURITE 18 JULY, 2017

 

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a favourite for #TeacupTuesday.

So where have I been and what have I been up to ?

Well, as I write this blog post, I am currently enjoying a nice cup of Chamomile tea in the Roman city of Bath, Somerset in England. It’s my annual trip and I’m so blessed to be able to have a working holiday in one of my favourite cities. Meeting up with friends around the country, while finding new things for the shop.

This trip has been a bit more relaxed and and I’m super excited about an upcoming family break to Germany. Who knows what I will find there. But for now, I bring you this fab image from Thelen Image Gallery – Still life, Food And Nature Photographer, coffee lover, & REP –   that summarises my current situation. Curled up with a magazine, drinking a nice cup of tea. All while enjoying the gentle tapping of rain drops against the window pane. It’s another rainy day, but sometimes you just have to take what comes and embrace it. Rarely do I have time for a magazine, so I’m just going to enjoy it.

I hope you have a wonderful day !

 

 

#TeacupTuesday Favourite 1 May, 2017

EMERALD GREEN… that’s what stopped me in my tracks when I was perusing my feed for my #TeacupTuesday favourite this week. This Wileman trio is gorgeous ! There are just too many details. From the stunning fluted detail on each piece to the ornate design, and what appears to be a lady driving tea on the teacup. It’s dainty, it’s cute and the perfect for month of May.

So, my favourite this week is from Yuka over at 📷: @desirable_antiques. By now you may be wondering, where can I find Wileman china. Well… You can find more Wileman beauties on Etsy here.  (You’re welcome).

Happy teacup Tuesday ! I love the bright and vibrant green colour like emerald 💚the birthstone of May Adorable treasure 🇬🇧✨ * わがショップに新しくお迎えしたワイルマンのグリーンカメオです。 わたしにとってもカメオはスペシャルなお品です。 #イギリス #アンティーク #アンティーク食器 #ティーカップ #エメラルドグリーン #ワイルマン #ティータイム #モーニングティー #アフタヌーンティー #5月 #誕生石 #ヴィクトリアン #陶磁器 #テーブルウエア #イギリスアンティーク #骨董 #紅茶 #アンティークのある暮らし #紅茶のある暮らし #teacuptuesday #wileman #emeraldgreen #teacuplover #tea #teatime #teacup #antique #tealover #green

#TeacupTuesday Favourite 25 April, 2017

Each week I’m filled with excitement to see what beautiful teacups will turn up on #teacuptuesday feed. New folks are always joining in and I love to find other enthusiasts to follow. As a rule, I always try to have my first morning cup of tea, in a vintage teacup.

My favourite this week is from Yvette over at 📷: @shelovesblooms . Such a gorgeous display around a pretty teacup! The premium rose and black tea sounds delicious too and I shall be giving that a try!

Do you have any tea recommendations that I should try ?

#TEACUPTUESDAY FAVOURITE APRIL 18, 2017

This week, my favourite captures the sentiment perfectly, after a great Easter holiday weekend. We hosted dinner with family and had a lovely time.

Monday was :

  1. The first day of school holidays
  2. Patriots Day
  3. Boston Marathon
  4. Day 7 of my 3 mile a day walk

So when Tuesday feels like Monday, more tea … is the advice from Elizabeth at www.bottlebranch.com who makes botanical art. She also has a lovely Etsy Shop.

How was your post holiday Monday ?

I hope you have an enjoyable rest of the week. And don’t forget to make time for tea.
