a bird lover's tea time


I am dreaming of springtime and sweet birds and spring blooms this week for Tea Time Tuesday at Sandi's where the theme this week is A Bird Lover's Tea.   



I will have to dream though because there is still a lot of snow all around us and the springtime birds haven't returned to our part of the world yet.  I love watching the birds in our yard all year around and can't wait to hear the sweet sounds of the summer songbirds when they finally arrive for the season.


So, to welcome spring I got out some of my bird ornaments and birdhouses and some faux blossom sprigs to bring some cheer to my tea time.  The tall birdhouse was a gift from my daughter many years ago.  It stays indoors as it doesn't have a bottom board.


This nest and partial eggs are real, found in the yard.



This bird and birdhouse are from Michael's.



The fabric bird sachet is from Vee.





I just happened to have a slice of cheesecake in the freezer.  :)  And some fresh strawberries too.  Sounds yummy doesn't it?


My teacup is Salisbury Bone China from England.  Pattern # 3651. I like the pink flowers and the ruffled edge on the cup and saucer.



Thank you for joining me for this Bird Lover's Tea today.  I am watching and waiting each day for the spring birds to return to our neck of the woods.  
Please pop over and visit Sandi's "Rose Chintz Cottage" for Tea Time Tuesday and Ruth's "Antiques and Teacups" where she has a lovely Irish theme for Tuesday Cuppa Tea.


Have a lovely day and drink tea.

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. A delicious bird lovers tea. Your little birds and birdhouses are adorable. Spring is creeping in slowly. We are noticing the snow piles shrinking down a little bit each day. Can't wait to have my afternoon tea in the gazebo.

  13. I loved the promise of spring in your post today. it will be wonderful when the spring birds are back and when the roads are good enough for friends to come for teatime. I love the photos you took to describe your thoughts and wish you a lovely cup of tea as you contemplate the coming of spring.

  21. Hello Pamela, All your pictures are Wonderful...they seem like they are right out of a magazine! The chippy, tall birdhouse from your daughter, in years past, is a treasure to keep always. I adore the white bird, too. The tea cup and saucer are amazing...so very pretty. I am sure the tea tastes so much better drinking from those darling cups!!Sounds like you have been having a good time lately. I have been so very busy lately and while the Fibromyalgia is under control, I have to keep moving and get things done. That is why you have not heard from me. I was very happy to read your post tonight

    Blessings and talk to you soon,
    Susannah.

  35. Dear Pamela,
    I am really a late guest, but better late than never, right? Your birds are still on the blog's tea table. I know why, you have still snow outside. Oh my, we are happy to have a bit spring already. I hope, winter will go away from your area and spring will come soon. But it looks wonderful - outside as much as inside in your house. The table is really sweet and so perfect for the theme. Your cake looks delicious and the china is so pretty. And all the little birds! Really sweet. Thank you for sharing this and for your visit and the sweet comment on my blogpost. And least not last, I love this watercolor app. Looks really great.
    Best greetings, Johanna
