TEA TIME TUESDAY ! SIDE TABLES ARE GREAT FOR TEA !




I find that keeping a little side table set up next to my dining room is perfect for an "overflow" area for tea items!




Some little cups and saucers from Germany seemed perfect this morning as I was setting things up.....



and some Bavarian plates were perfect for Tea Time Tuesday....






I guess this would be a perfect Pink Saturday post as well....lots of pink here!




Tea Time Tuesday is coordinated by Sandi who lives in Canada...go to http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/
her lovely blog is called Rose Chintz Cottage & Inspiration







You can collect all sorts of things for a tea party...your personality will lead you.  You might be an "everything matching personality" or you might be "more mix and match".  Both work equally well!
You might be more serious...or more whimsical.  Be yourself!




As you can see, I am definitely in the mix and match category!







Whatever you style....take time for tea!  And visit other bloggers who participate in this day by following the link above!

Hello :) I am so loving all your gorgeous rose china pieces!! The cups, the plates, and the teapots...beautiful! You're right, this post would be perfect for Pink Saturday, with all the pretty pink roses :)

Dear Bernideen,
your china is always stunning. I dont agree when you say, you are in the mix and match categorie. Although the tea pots, cups and plates are not from the same producer, they match perfect. They have the same colors and only slightly different patterns. Just as if the are made for each other. You really have a magic eye for matching things. I always enjoy to visit your blog.
Greetings, Johanna

Hi Bernideen,

Thank-you so much for stopping by my blog today for a "cuppa" ... this is my first Tea Time Tuesday and I have so enjoyed having people pop by my blog for a visit.

I love the eclectic mix of items you have used to set your tea table. It all looks so very inviting! I can just imagine sitting down for a lovely hot cup of tea and a nice visit.

I'm following you now and look forward to more of your lovely posts in the future.
