Autumn tea time

Hello ladies (and any gentlemen as well)...this is my first post for the "Tuesday Teas".  I have been visiting and watching your blogs for several months and decided to join in.

My mother had a wonderful teacup collection and I started mine with her.  I inherited her teacup collection and this cup was one of hers.  I thought it looked very autumnal and perfect for this time of year.

It was cool this past weekend, so I made leaf cookies
and frosted them in autumn colors!  They are great with tea or coffee...                                                 
The white china teapot is Polish china which
complements other china that I have. 
This tea cup is from Bavaria, Germany

The cookies are on a Royal Albert Val D'Or dessert plate
The teaspoon is Oneida Damask Rose
The tea pot is from Tea with Grace
The pumpkin was just purchased at T.J. Maxx

Thank you for letting me join you and I hope to see you again!



  1. Such a perfect Fall teacup and saucer! And the teapot is just right any time!

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Hello, Tess! I posted today for the first time on Tea Time Tuesday, so we're jumping in together! I really like the autumn set, particularly since I don't see those a lot. Very, pretty. That teapot, die for! Wow!!!

  3. Welcome to the Tuesday tea parties. You will love being part of all the tea party fun each week.

    Yes, that teacup is perfect for fall. It is very pretty. And your cookies look fabulous...and very delicious. I love to make cut-out sugar cookies.

    Have a lovely day,

  4. Hi- I'm a new visitor! I love the name of your blog. You have a lovely collection of teacup & cats : ) We just adopted a 4th cat- whew, they are a handful, but so adorable.
