Easter Tea

Welcome friends to Easter tea which is being hosted by Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage.  My tea table is set and the kettle is on so please sit and join me.


This little teapot is a precious tribute to Easter past.  With his blossom filled crocus basket, he is the perfect compliment to our plaid napkin.  Oh, how I love the vintage look to him!


Crocus teacups await Earl Grey tea with cranberry muffins in the oven.  A purple pansy with a cheery face peeks over the rim.    



"Easter is a time to rejoice, be thankful, be assured that all is forgiven so life extends beyond the soil of earth." ~ Byron Pulsifer


This pressed glass crocus basket holds a sweet chocolate bunny.  Pressed glass became popular in America in the 1820s.


Today I have my mother's bible.  It was given to her by my late grandfather on December 25, 1955 and passed down to me.  One of the few precious items I have from her.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and that your baskets are filled with joy and smiles!  I'm joining Ms. Jenny for Alphabe-Thursday for the letter "T" this week as well as the following tea parties:

Tuesday Cuppa Tea @ Antiques and Teacups
Tea Cup Tuesday @ Martha's Favorites
Tea Cup Tuesday @ Artful Affirmations
Friends Sharing Tea @ Bernideen's Tea Time Blog
Table Top Tuesday @ A Stroll Thru Life
