Tea Time - Tea Cups - Tea Pots - Table Spread

I'm not sure if many of you know that I am a
total Tea Addict. I love all sorts of tea not to
mention that I'm a tea ware/tea cup and tea
pot collector. I also keep a large collection of
tea at all times at home and at work.

Just wanted to share some tea time spreads
and photos with you all. I hope it will inspire
you to take some time out for a cup of tea. It
can indeed lift the spirit.

I love collecting mismatched and different
teacup and saucer sets. They make for a
fun and eclectic table setting or tea party.

How about them cupcakes with your tea?

I do love my pink so I love this collection of pink houseware.

If you have a collection of teapots, the mantle over your
fireplace is as good as any place to display your collection.

Cupcakes and tea seem to be a popular match.

Perfect Tables by William Yeoward

Last but not least, when looking at all this
house ware, I think of William Yeoward's
book on Perfect Tables. It's a fantastic
book if you don't already have it.

Have a great weekend and have a cup of tea!

I'm also a die hard tea person. I don't even know how to make coffe! Have you ever bought tea from They have an amazing selection, and I especially love their peppermint and cinnamon mist flavours. :) Love the pictures, have you posted any pics of your own collection?

I can't believe I didn't by Wm. Yeoward's book in London last fall. I was in his store and met him, and it didn't even occur to me to have him sign it.

Also, there's a cute restaurant here that has chandeliers that are teacups and saucers!

My favourite tea is Earl Gray & Lady Gray.

You might not want to hear this but I've broken some cups and plates on purpose to make pendants out of them. Sorry!! I keep my favorites safe though.
