Tea Time and Tea Party Tuesday!


Tea Time Tuesday with Lady Katherine

Today, I am joining Tea Time Tuesday with Lady Katherine Tea Parlor.  This is her first one, so please go and visit and check out all the tea parties going on.

Also I am joining Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses for Tea Party Tuesday… please check this out.   This is her second Tuesday to host this day.


Congratulations  to both ladies on what I hope will be a successful and funfilled day.







I purchased this Teaposy  at Beadboard Upcountry in Brenham, a while ago and have not used it lately.

I thought it would be interesting to show for those who are not familiar with them.



This is the teaposy, you place in the teapot and add boiling water, wait about 3-6 minutes.



This is the teaposy opened.


Now we have tea.

Happy Tuesday~

I've seen them in tea shops, but never had them at home. I don't have a clear teapot. I think they are made for a wonderful post.

I've haven't seen a tea posey before. How pretty and having that clear teapot was perfect. Such a pretty setting.
I hosted a formal tea yesterday for my daughter's etiquette class. It turned out very pretty. My neighbor brought her silver tea service.

Good Morning, I heard so much about you, Debbie talks about you. Now I I see your blog! Yeah! Thank you for joining me today. I love the Tea Posey. I only saw one before at Susans. How lovely it looks with the the yellow daisys and I been hunting some colored doily's! lolThe silver tray is so beautiful! Thank You for showing your tea with the clear glass. I need to buy one for my crystal clear cups! It is so magical to see the posey open up!

I've been in the dark! I've never seen or heard of a teaposy; I love the way the posy looks through the clear glass.
Very pretty!
