Tea Time Tuesday's 2nd Anniversary/Birthday Tea Party

Today I'm celebrating over at Rose Chintz Cottage where Sandi is celebrating Tea Time Tuesday's 2nd Anniversary/Birthday Tea Party . Because of her love of roses, she has asked her friends to share all our "rose-themed" tea things. Here are some of mine.

This blue rose teapot was given to me by my mom. The teacup was an antique store find.
These sets of two different teapots with matching teacups are my favorites!
The teapot and teacup on the left have music boxes in their bases..
Here is the musical teacup turned upside-down. Notice the little winder that is used to wind the music box up to play.The teacup plays "just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down."
These teacup/teapot ornaments have rose designs on them
I do love white roses, but I don't have anything with white roses on it.
I found an awesome website, though, that made my mouth water with really cool tea things
(and white rose designs!)
It's called Cake Stand Heaven. Have you heard of it?
There are a couple of items I really want to get someday. . .
This rose cakestand is gorgeous, isn't it?

Here is a close-up of the teacup in the cake-stand.

This white rose teacup is used as a candle.

Wishing Sandi a wonderful 2nd anniversary/birthday and may the party grow and blossom every week with the joy and fellowship of other tea-lovers!!!

In exactly one week (January 31st) my hubby and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! I will have a little surprise for everyone, so come on back next week.

  1. Your roses are lovely. From candles, to music boxes, to cake stands to tea! I think you have it all covered!!! Happy Tea Day!

    1. Thank you! It seems like roses are the "all-American" flower.

  2. Hello Ann,
    Your china is so beautiful. I adore the musical tea pots and tea cups! Wow!
    And that cake stand is gorgeous.
    But what really caught my eye is the beautiful tea cup in the first photo, it looks European?
    It is delicate and so rich looking. Great find!

    1. Thanks, Terri! I'm not sure where the antique tea cup is from, possibly England. It is very unique. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hello Ann,
    What a delightful post filled with rose themed tea things! I love the plate stand and the musical teapot and teacup are wonderful. The little teacup in your first photo is very cute!
    I am so happy you have joined me in my celebration today! You have made it all the more special by your presence.
    Twenty-five years is quite the milestone these days! Congratulations on your upcoming Anniversary! I celebrated mine a few years back. Have a lovely day.


  4. Thanks for your wonderful comments, Sandi! I just love your blog and tea displays and especially your tea times!! I get to meet so many wonderful people who link up, as well! God Bless!

  5. Hi Ann,
    I never saw a tea cup with music. That sounds so sweet. What a nice colection you have. And yes, the cake stands are gorgous. I bougth the metal for such cake stands at ebay and will design my own with left mismatched plates. Hopefully that turn out nice. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos. I also want to congratulate for your upcoming Anniversary.
    Best greetings, Johanna

    1. Thanks, Johanna! Hope your home built cake-stand looks wonderful! You'll have to share it on your blog when you get it put together!

  6. Really love your collection of cups, saucers and teapots. The roses and the chintz patterns are lovely. Thanks for sharing. Happy Tea Party and hope you have a wonderful Anniversary. Pam

  7. Happy Anniversary! Pat
