A Cup of Tea Anyone?

Can you believe it's Saturday already? You know what that means. Pink Saturday. Hosted by Beverly over at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/myweblog/ You'll find a full list of participants. With all that was going on I almost forgot to take pictures. So, I hurriedly got together a vignette of pink. A few years ago I purchased this beautiful little lamp from a company out of New York. I can't remember the name. I only know it wasn't too expensive or it wouldn't have been
ordered. lol. I paired it this week with one of the tea cups out of the "small" collection I have. :-)

I love the unique shape of the saucer. Perfect fit for a spoon to rest on. Notice the missing spoon? Yepper, I forgot it. But the thought was there. lol


Everyone needs to enjoy a cup of tea and a good book on a windy Friday evening with temperatures outside dropping. Inside it's cozy and warm and a good book is calling my name.

Don't you love the fluted edge to the small lamp? It is so delicate and almost feminine looking. The black and white toile is a perfect backdrop to this gorgeous lamp.

I had to show you the beauty of the saucer. The roses are breath taking in person.





Even in a pinch you can throw a vignette together. I hope you enjoyed my contribution to Pink Saturday. Don't forget to swing by Beverly's at How Sweet the Sound, click on the sidebar for a faster trip. You won't be disappointed. Now, I'm off to see more pink..hugs ~lynne~

Lynne, That pink teacup is SO adorable-ably pretty!
I used to paint china a long long time ago. And those colors are so hard to get... if that is a hand painted cup and saucer... I would bet that there was at least 6 to 8 firings on that!
I'm really starting to enjoy pink Saturday!

Hi Lynne,
How beautiful is your Pink fluted lamp? It is so delicate and gorgeous. It looks really lovely with your cup and saucer beside it.

I may try to join Pink Saturday. It's probably too late this week though. I guess I can ask.
I got confused as to who hosted it and thought it was another lady named "Lynn" at a blog called "The Vintage Nest".
Gloria helped me out with the answer.

Thank you so much for the prayers. It really means alot to me.
~Melissa :)

You really have a knack for putting together a lovely vignette. That lamp is gorgeous, as is the tea cup. I just love the detail on the saucer. Kathy

This is a vignette filled with lovely things. The lamp is so pretty and very unusual. Thank you for sharing.

rosechicfriends said...

WOW...I just LOVE that Tea Cup!!!! I collect them and that has to be one of the PRETTIEST ones I have EVER seen!

onlymehere said...

They're both beautiful and work so well together!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Your cup and saucer, and lamp are so pretty. I don't know that I have every seen a saucer shaped like that Really like the toile drapes. Have a great day.
Glenda

Glenda said...

Love the pretty lamp, but my favorite is that beautiful cup and saucer sitting on that "old fashioned" doily. I can never look at crochet work without thinking about my Mother.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Good morning Glenda, I understand why you think of your mother and her beautiful talent when you look at the doily. Thanks for stopping by..hope you have a super w/k.
hugs ~lynne~

The Muse said...

hello Ms Lynne, hope all is well as i visit this Saturday!

what colors are in your lovely shade? i love the way they appear to meld into one another! i bet it looks pretty even when the light is off:)

you are after my heart, talking about snuggling in for tea and a read, lol...there is not much than compare to that...
except perhaps the memories of family...and you have that too, with the lovely crotchet!

Susan said...

Beautiful pinks Lynne! I love the fluted lamp and the cup/sauce...both gorgeous!

Happy Pink Saturday!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Lynne, What a lovely vignette you "threw" together. That lamp and the tea cup and saucer are beautiful, and they do make me think of sitting down and reading a wonderful book while I drink my tea (in MY guestroom). laurie

Faeryhollow said...

Hi, Lynne,
As you might imagine, pink is just about my favorite color, and I love looking at all of the pink pretties here. The cup and saucer are so lovely, and just the right contrast to the toile. My dear mother-in-law was a professional china painter, and we have so many of her beautiful pieces...an embarrassment of riches, some might say. She has had pieces at the Smithsonian and the White House, and she was truly an inspired artist. As a heretofor (is that a word?!) unconfessed dish addict like so many others here, she nurtured my obsession beautifully! If I ever do begin a blog, I will definitely share some of her work early on. Thanks for a beautiful vignette to enjoy on Pink Saturday. Hugs, Barbara

imjacobsmom said...

You took the words out of my mouth - your pinks paired perfectly with your toile! Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Fieldstone said...

Lynne, Your teacup and saucer are gorgeous! Seeing your vignette surely does invite one to curl up with a good book and enjoy a cup of hot tea. And tea is healthy for you, too! Smiles, Pam

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Good morning to you Barbara, How fortunate to have all those wonderful things of your mother in laws. I would love to see some of them. You must start a blog my friend.. If RMS will let me on.. I'm scooting over to see you...I'm so glad you popped in..hugs ~lynne~

Denise Elizabeth said...

I have a lamp like that. Happy pink day. Love that doggy thing I have a dog just like that. Hugs, Denise

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Pam, good morning my friend. Thanks for swinging in and enjoying the tea cup with me. I'm scooting over to RMS if it will let me on..
hugs ~lynne~

Gollum said...

I love the teacup and saucer. And I loved what your wrote. It really does take a moment to put together a peaceful setting. My mother is here this weekend, and I'm going to fix Tea for Two, with linen napkins, bone china, and candlelight. I would add the meringues, but we ate every last one. :-)
Hugs,
G

Melissa Miller said...

Thanks Lynne! ;)
I do have an idea for a Pink post for next week.
It will be fun!

I have about ten dIfferent ideas for blog postings right now and I think I'm starting to confuse myself.
I need to get a Blog folder and get organized.
Oh boy...this is really getting addictive isn't it?
LOL!
Have a good day.~Melissa :)

You have a natural knack for putting things together if you managed to toss these things together quickly...what a pretty, inviting vignette! I love it...the teacup and saucer are stunning, what beautiful, vivid shades of pink. And the lamp gives off such a warm, cozy glow, just beautiful. :-)

What a perfect, pink vignette!
I'm so hoping this finds you happily putting your room back together now that the carpet was laid! :-) L~

salmagundi said...

I have so much to learn from you putting vignettes together. The shape of that saucer is unusual, and the whole vignette beautiful! Sally

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Who knows maybe I'll join in on the Pink Saturday some day. Your teacups are really pretty, so is the lamp as well..I bet it gives off a nice glow in the evening.

Shelia said...

Evening, Sweet Lynne. Oh, I just adore the little teacup and saucer. I've never seen anything quite like the shape of the saucer. Love the lamp too! You do have the most beautiful things and can't wait to see what you're going to do next!
Be a sweetie,
shelia ;)

Lady Katherine said...

The lamp is lovely, the crystal looks like the pineapple pattern. The tea cup and saucer, I want it! Oh, sorry, I know its yours, I do love it so much! I got a set of pink rose tea cups for Christmas, but not a teapot to match. I am now wanting a set of pink dishes! lol We got a call and went to hubby's aunt's today. She had bought him a palm tree. We are going to have a place he can hang his hammock, add white rock, and sand, and other palms then he will think he is Florida! lol I got out in the pouring rain, and peek into a shop so full, I tried to take pictures from the window, to see if I wanted to come back. She now only opens by appointment. I called to see if I could get in the shop today. The mother could meet me, hubby's aunt said forget it she will never show up. Sure enough, thats what happened! I saw a pink set of dishes and linens, just about anything! Too bad!

ksarra said...

Oh, that pink cup and saucer just calls my name! The epitome of romantic style. I had to let you know that when my little granddaughter comes over she always wants me to go to your blog so that she can "talk" to your little puppy on your sidebar.

Kristen said...

I could really use a cup a tea right now...I'm on break from helping Mr. C with the water heater.
I love your tea cup and saucer. I love that the saucer is not a traditional shape!

Chari said...

Lynne, that little teacup is so beautiful...you just couldn't help but feel special sipping tea out of it!!! Oooh...and you know that I join you in the "lamp addiction"...hehe...that lamp is just gorgeous with it's pretty pink glass shade...and your toile curtains are the perfect backdrop!!! I don't know if I mentioned it before...but I love that black & white check with the toile...I want to do a room in that sooooo bad!!!

I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend, my friend!
Love ya,
Chari
