Victorian Tea Party!! Victorian Tea Party!!

Welcome to The House in the Roses! Prepare yourselves for a fun filled day at our Victorian Tea Party!

The simple act of lifting a pretty teapot and pouring a cup of hot tea, or coffee, sets time apart form the rest of your day, bringing pleasurable moments of peaceful delight. And sometimes, when a friend joins you, taking time for enjoying your pretty teacups becomes a special occasion.

Tea does our fancy aid, Repress those vapours which the head invade And keeps that palace of the soul serene. - Edmund Waller, "Of Tea"

Dear friends, the day of our party is finally here! Tables are set, food is ready, and people from all over the world are starting to gather around the garden. Please do come in! The house in the roses is delighted to present the latest collection of fine tea ware in cyberspace! Made by all of us, with love. Here they are! Enjoy!

Ps: Due to the party, we won't be featuring our weekly "Show Off Your Cottage Monday", but we will be back next week with another lovely presentation, you would not want to miss! ---------------------------------------------- UPDATE: Dear friends of The house in the roses, I am sorry we were unable to add any of the many “late” photographs sent after our party post was up and running. Our computer was erratically moving things around, and I feared losing the precious photographs and data already established, but I’m including an "Inlinks" here just in case you still like to participate. If you do, please make sure to link back to the party, here at “The house in the roses”. I am also linking our party post to tea memes and tea divas, as following: Lady Katherine tea parlor Rose Chintz Cottage The plumed pen Martha's favorites Artful affirmations
