Midsummer Tea

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
Despite the fall decorations arriving early this year in the stores, it is just now midsummer. 

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
Nothing could portray midsummer more beautifully than the little teacup I won last week in a giveaway by Mary at Home is Where the Boat Is. The butterflies and bee dance across my cup...

and across the saucer too.

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
“Are you sure 
that we are awake? It seems, to me
that yet we sleep, we dream." 
~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
The flowers are from my garden, hyssop and snapdragon. Like my new bonsai scissors?  
They are very sharp, perfect for cuttings from the garden.

Midsummer Tea: The Charm of Home
"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." 
                                                        ~Psalm 51:7

Beautiful photos! I don't want to see the Fall and Halloween decorations in the stores yet. I simply want to enjoy the remaining days of summer. Nice garden scissors!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

What a darling teacup, Sherry. Congrats on winning it! I have to admit it bugs me when I see the Fall decor in the stores already including Halloween stuff. It's only the first of August after all. I'm savouring every single moment of summer because it does pass so quickly. Thanks for sharing your pretty post and have a beautiful day.

Congratulations on winning such a lovely tea cup. Who is the maker? I'm tired of seeing Christmas in July too. In fact I seen Christmas items out in June some places.

Hi Sherry, that is indeed a very beautiful summery tea cup! I am curious who the maker is.
You styled your photos beautifully!
Warm regards,

This year I cannot wait til fall. We have been having too much heat this summer. The teacup is so cute and I love the little butterflies on it.

Congratulations, Sherry! You and Mary have great taste. Anything from Mary would be a delight. Enjoy your tea!

What a beautiful teacup that you won! I'm not giving up summer until mid-september. I just don't understand why anyone wants to rush a season away....

Pondside said...

Your tea cup winning is exquisite. How could one fail to be soothed on sipping from it? The scissors are pretty exciting!.....I think I may need a pair like that.

The teacup is by Grace's Teaware.
