Savouring Summer Tea

I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.
                                                                                        ~L.M. Montgomery

I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, like pearls slipping off a string.
                                                                                                ~L.M. Montgomery

Are you taking a  moment to savor summer?
The teacup is Fair Winds by Alfred Meakin.

Those are great quotes. And I love the teacup and saucer! I'm savoring it every day.

pembrokeshire lass said... we had a day just to do that!! The weather stayed dry and the sun shone. We have had so much rain this June that it is just wonderful to have sun and therefore we just needed to be outside!! Loved the flowers and the tray etc! Joan

I really like the Fair Winds teacup! Lovely tea tray -- perfect, calm color. Happy Tea Day!

Delightful tea and post. LOVE L.M. Montgomery -- great quotes - and Tess of the d'Urbervilles -- read the book and then saw the Masterpiece Theatre version.

I love your teacup and saucer, even though I don't drink tea!

Your images are lovely, Sherry. I hope you have a wonderful week!

Hello Sherry,
What a lovely tea! I love LM Montgomery's quotes! Actually I am planning an Anne Tea one of these weeks and Montgomery's quotes would be perfect for that! Your Meakin cup and saucer is really sweet. A perfect Summer post! Thank you for coming to my party and have a delightful week.

Lovely quotes and tea by the lake. I think I would like a world when it's always June.

I love your Fair Winds pretty! The quotes were a wonderful treat, too.

What I would do right now for a cup of tea and some Thomas Hardy! Thank you for the reminder that there is more to savoring summer than eating Otter Pops :).

OH I love that quote you used -- saving that! I simply ADORE summer (and DESPISE winter!) so even now, when it's mid-90's and humid . . . I bask and in it. Even driving yesterday (with no working A.C. in my car) I felt so pleased to feel the warmth of the sun! Beautiful post and lovely pictures!

What a lovely post! It's still so cool here that I haven't had a chance to savour yet but I am hoping it will warm up soon!

Leslie said...

What a nice summertime post. June is a pretty great month, I must say! I love your tray of pretties, especially the tea cup and saucer. The quotes are really great, too!
