Read this my dears, and you will see
how to make a nice cup of tea
take teapot to kettle, not t'other way round
and when you hear that whistling sound
pour a little in the pot
just to make it nice and hot.
Pour that out and put in the tea,
loose or in bags, your choice you see.
One bag for each two cups will do
with one extra bag to make a fine brew
Steep 3-5 minutes then pour a cup.
Then sit right down and drink it up!

Before it started to rain and hail yesterday, it was a beautiful day. In the afternoon, Hubby and I decided to go for a ride and ended up at a favorite antique mall in Denver. I found my 2nd Shelley Tea Cup above called "Rosebud". It was $14.00 which I knew I couldn't pass up! As you probably know, Shelley's are considered like the "top of the line" teacups.
Who can understand how we could have drought all summer and now so much rain. There is snow on Pikes Peak today since the rain becomes snow at 14,000 feet. We are enjoying the cooler temperatures and the ability to wear a sweater or light jacket and be very comfortable.
I also am sharing my Dubarry Spode Coffee, Cream and Sugar below that I found earlier in the summer sitting on top my Mother In Law's mirror. I believe it came from her German parents.
Have you found any new treasures lately? Perhaps you would like to join my blog party by sharing something you found or anything about tea! Just link at the bottom and it is nice when you include a link to me on your post!
