Teatime Tuesday

 Today I am drinking "Black Pearl" and having Banana Nut bread with mini chocolate chips, that my daughters Emily and Rachel made.  It's a delightful breakfast.

 I am using this sweet teapot by Royal Vale, an English Rose luncheon plate, my sweet Old Country Roses Chintz teacup and a creamer that came with a luncheon set that belonged to my late Grandmother.  I used to always play with the luncheon set when I would visit her as a little girl.

 I love the Old Country Roses variations, the chintz being a particular favorite. 

Here is the sweet creamer - it has no markings so I am not sure of the manufacturer.  I love to have tea in the quiet morning, taking time to gather my thoughts before I begin my day. When is your favorite time for tea? 

I'm joining Lady Katherine and Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage for Teatime Tuesday.  I am loving getting to know you all and sharing tea with you!  Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Can I come? So inviting! Lucky you to still have girls at home to bake! I'd like a breakfast like that everyday!

  2. Just beautiful china! Lovely!

  3. Hello,
    that sounds like a very sweet breakfeast.All looks so nice and yummy.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  4. It is wonderful to see you enjoying this meme. It is so you!!

    Delightful, my friend. Simply delightful.

  5. Pretty china cups and teapot! I love the lace tablecloth too. Very nice setting. Blessings, Pamela

  6. Beautiful china and I love banana bread with chocolate chips (and pumpkin bread too)!

  7. One of my favorite breakfasts, ever, and especially when the bread is made by loving little hands.

    Charming setting, as well.


  8. Mmmmm, the bread sounds divine! Yum~ What a pretty setting the blue & white linens.

  9. So charming here...sorry that I missed morning tea. My favorite time for tea is about three in the afternoon when I begin to sink. That's when I want a bracing cup of Earl Grey. In the evening, I sometimes enjoy some calming chamomile about an hour before bedtime.

  10. I would love to begin my days with a quiet cup of tea, but this practically never happens.

    Usually I enjoy a quiet cup of tea and a good book in the evenings, but I have not yet become much of a tea drinker in the hot summer months.

  11. Hi Deanna,
    How lovely to have your girls bake for you! I had all boys so I had to do all the cooking and baking in our home. I just love your chintz teacup and the other china is lovely too. A wonderful tea time. Thank you for sharing this with Tea Time Tuesday and have a delightful week.


  12. Well, I know that creamer - it's the Moss Rose pattern and I have a slew of it from my grandmother, mother and aunt. They all collected the pieces back in the '40's and '50's - and grandma even further back. There are many variations of it and makers - some better quality than others. I shall have to feature my varieties in an upcoming post.

  13. Good Morning Deanna!

    This looks delightful!
    Thanks for your note and for the add!


  14. I very rarely drink tea in the summer, but I'd gladly sit at your table and have a cup. And some of that delicious bread, of course!
