"ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE "....  dah-dah-dah-dah-dahhhhh.... All you need is love, love, love love"
There's something about old songs and lyrics, that go well with tea. 
I tend to be a seventies and eighties music junkie when it comes to lyrics.
 How about you ?

                 Today, I'm dressing up for our belated  anniversary dinner
                                           but in the  meantime      
                                              IT IS  TEATIME!!!

        WELCOME to my rainy side of the world ... I hope you don't get too 
                                  damp and chilled on the way over.
                            A nice cup of mint tea will warm you up.

I love all floral teacups, but must admit, that rose china always catches my eye, especially if there's  a thick glimmer of gold. ( Bling Bling)

Look, there's even a golden droplet on the bottom of the saucer. ( Ha Ha) Probably the inspiration of an over enthused artisan who was late for teatime.

This teaset is really pretty and I'm over enunciating the word, p-r-e-t-t-y., as in " I FEEL PRETTY, oh so pretty".

Not only are the  blossoms  oversized but the gold is way over the hill, exaggerated with old world charm.

On a dreary day, who wouldn't want to drink from a rose tea cup dripping with gold?

( Ding Ding) It's  3 o'clock ... The tea is poured and some of the ladies are settling in for a good old Victorian chin wag or should I say gossip session. 
( naughty naughty)... 

What or who should we talk about?... and ... Did you know about this?  ... and ... How about that?

Well, I'm certainly glad that you are all getting things out of your system. I just have to get over all the rain ... AHHHHHH .... 
It's amazing what a cup of tea will do for the spirit.

May I pour you another cup of tea before your carriage arrives ...OH ... YOU came on foot, GOODNESS, you'll get drenched.( Tsk Tsk )  Never mind, YOU live in the twentieth century and it really doesn't matter.

Thank goodness, teatime in our day and age, is  just a nice, pleasant gathering of Friends, who discuss things like, the weather, gardens, family, loved ones, anniversaries

and of course 

             Thanks for indulging in my silly, rainy day, teatime  meanderings.

                                                ENJOY YOUR DAY
                                          "ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE "

TODAY, I'm sharing teatime with: with Sandi at "Rose Chintz Cottage", 
Martha's Favorites, Ruth's ,"Cuppa Tea" and Bernideen's " All Things Tea" Blog.

GORGEOUS teacup! It is over the top lovely with its roses and gold gilding. I am attracted to roses as well. It is very cold here on the east coast and I can't wait for it to warm up again. Tea is so welcome on days like this. Thanks for joining me for tea.

What a stunning teacup! I've always been drawn to teacups with gold detailing. I'm also a huge fan of '80s music!

I really enjoyed your post! The bit about coming on foot and getting drenched on the way home reminded me of Pride and Prejudice, ah, Mrs. Bennett's scheming! Lovely teacup! Roses and loads of gold--win win ;)

I love your personality in your blog Zaa. :-) It exudes a refreshing lightheartedness. I love the flowers a lot too, they are so pretty. I am saving some money so that before the next fall ends I might burry some bulbs for next spring, lol. And that tea cup!!!! I did say I love flowers right? Thank you for your post.
