A Little Ice Tea

Ice tea comes in many shapes and sizes!

For me I enjoy some great sweet tea on these summer days
that get pretty warm here in the desert southwest.This is
my tea for today.

Doesn't that look refreshing!  It does look a little formal today
because I'm participating in my first Tea Time Tuesday
posting to a number of really nice ladies blogs.

This is my little corner of the world where I enjoy some quiet
time with either my cup of coffee in the morning or my hot
tea or ice at other times of the day.  I call it my Victorian/Garden
room.  I have moved lots of my house plants in here as well
as my collection of hats.

My crystal ice tea glass keeps my drink quite chilly for a long time.
I'm using a pretty sterling silver teapot napkin holder and ice tea
spoon.  The silver tea spoon was a nice find along with four more
at a second hand store.  It has been around for a long time as the
wear indicates but it serves the purpose very well.

My pretty chintz tea pot does not have it's top so it does a good
job being filled with flowers and looking pretty as a center piece
on my dinning room table.  The little tea bag holder looks like
it is a match to the teapot but not so.

It does match pretty good don't you think!

The pretty linen napkin is embroidered with an open
filigree edge. 

The pressed glass tray servers the purpose very well for my
moment of enjoying some really good sweet tea.  It has 
a harp motif in the glass and the gold edge really 
adds to the beauty of the tray.

So whatever glass you like your ice tea in bring it on over 
to my little corner of the world and we will enjoy some
quiet time together!

 Thank you for visiting with me today!!

  1. Hello Lady Suzanne/Sue,
    Which do you prefer? Suzanne is such a pretty name! I LOVE your veranda! What a cozy spot to relax with oneself or company!
    I have enjoyed your tea very much and I'm so happy you have joined my little party today. Your teapot is lovely and don't they make wonderful vases to hold our posies when one loses the top? Yes, your tea bag holder is a very good match. Thank you for stopping by and joining me especially in the midst of all our blogger woes. It's been very nice to 'meet' you.
