"MS. POTTS TEATIME"

GREETINGS  LADIES  ... I am Pricilla Potts and I'll be attending the Tuesday Teatime with all you darling  teatottlers... Incase you're wondering , I'm here to talk about tea.



 Let me tell you, that in my experience , Teatime is not just a time...  it  is a social celebration when you have the opportunity  to chat, or maybe even gossip a little while  eating strawberry/ cucumber sandwiches  and delectable dainties.



OMG ..I almost forgot about the tea( ha ha) ... YES ... Let us  sip on a nice cup of TEA.... pinkies down ... REMEMBER!

Here's sweet little teatime Recipe book that you really must purchase.
( www.storeybooks.com)This and other tea books such as  Herbal Teas, Herbal Tea Gardens, Green Tea,Chia and, The New Tea Book are all available online.




Goodness ... Where is our tea? ... Shall I ring the teatime bell? It is very hard to get good tea pourers these days ... As you know !!!!


Heavens, the other day a young lady, who was chewing bubblegum and drinking lemon tea  from a can, asked me why I carried a silly old  tea flask .. She even hinted  that it was spiked ... I  was horrified that she didn't know the benefits of drinking real tea ... WELL ... I sure told her a thing or two.


 I prefer my tea hot in a nice, china teacup, preferably a Paragon,like this one.

                         HOW ABOUT YOU !!!


This  rather romantic set has an elegant flare that is definitely perfect for all you lovely ladies. See how the flourishes sweep in artistic movements  like a  ballerina pirouetting around and around and round ... It sort of makes one dizzy. 
( Tee Hee)


              Oh, I do enjoy delightful  floral 
                      nosegays  at teatime, 


but oh dear, I'm not sure which one I like the best .



You shall have to pick.



WAIT


GOOD HEAVENS ... LOOK WHO IT IS !!!!! 


My dear friend, Clara Rosebush... How sweet of her to bring me teatime flowers.


Lah -Dee-Dah ...Now how special is that !!!!!


Excuse me ... POLLY, PUT THE KETTLE ON 
WE"LL ALL HAVE  SOME  JASMINE/PINAPPLE TEA...Didn't mean to be so demanding however,   " Where in the purple petunias is our Tea"? 
"

 

" Ah, at last !!! 


TEA AS IT SHOULD BE, 
WITH FRIENDS.


This is Pricilla Potts signing off ...
 I do hope that the Grand Lady will invite me sometime soon,for another,rollicking Tuesday Teatime"... of course , I'll have to check my schedule... " CHERRIO "


THANKS 
FOR 
THE 
VISIT


            TODAY, I'm sharing teatime with:
                Sandi: Rose Chintz Cottage
                Ruth  : Antiques and Teacups
                Bernideen's Teatime Blog

Oh Zaa, what fun it was to read your post this morning to bring a happy smile to my face. I so loved seeing your gorgeous Paragon teacup and your pretty nosegays (I can't choose, as they're both so charming). Oh my, to have tea with you in person would be a delight, but visiting your blog is the next best thing. Thanks for the lovely, lively story to brighten my day...such fun!
p.s. You should write a book!

Thank you Ms. Potts for inviting me for tea. I would love to join you! I agree tea is better with a friend and seems to taste better in a beautiful fine bone china teacup. Your Paragon is quite elegant. Such a fun and cheerful post!

Oh my goodness, I love Priscilla Potts ! I think sharing tea with her would leave me laughing (discreetly of course ) and I do detect a bit of sarcasm oozing from her. I love having a chat with those pre-disposed to a witty and sarcastic conversation, even if I sometimes end up as the butt of their slightly acid humor. I do hope Miss Potts has tea with us again .

Zaa said...

Thank You Kathy ...Ms Potts would love you to visit more often .... I'm so pleased that you stopped over for a spot of tea....Hugs
