Afternoon Tea

I used to have four of the same cups that matched, but lately I have been collecting cups in every shape and color.  I guess you might call it my "eclectic" collection.

Here is my newest tea cup from Anthropologie.  Me and the girls love this shop with all its unique items.

"Under certain circumstances
there are few hours
in life more agreeable
than the hour dedicated
to the ceremony known as
afternoon tea."
~Henry James

Won't you have a
cup of tea with me?

Love all your wonderful tea cups even I don't drink tea. But I think thay go perfect well for a hot cappucino!!!So, a cup of coffee in the last tea cup please!

Daphne Bryson said...

Good Afternoon Sheri, I love eclectic collections of tea cups and plates.... I think they are very interesting and each usually comes with a story to tell.
I am pretty fond of your new Anthropology cup and saucer and I love the dinkie feet that the cup is standing on. Doesn't a nice cup and saucer, make drinking tea or coffee, a much more pleasurable experience.
Best Wishes

Oh Daphne, the cup I bought at Anthropologie, but the plate is just mine. It's white corningware. Thanks for visiting.

Sheri, We have something else in common, mixing and matching and the anthro teacup… mine is orange, love the feet! Have a wonderful day.


I would gladly have a cup of tea with you. It is one of life's simple pleasures. Your cups are beautiful.

Tulla and Catie said...

I really would like to drink a cup of tea with you :). I also collect different cups and although I have already so many, I often look for a special new one! Unfortunately we do not have Anthropology in Germany, but I saw it first time in London - a wonderful shop! and your blue cup is very pretty!
Enjoy your day,

I'd love to take tea with you,very week, no milk, or sugar, and only if I can have the blue & white cup. I'm not familiar with Anthropology,but I guess from the comments it seems to be the tops !

parTea lady said...

You have a lovely collection of tea cups. I really like the blue polka dot mug with the bird. It would certainly be a cheerful vessel for morning tea.

Best in 2014. ☺

I love the one with the pink rose!

Hi Sheri,

Would love to sit and have a cup of tea with you.
Love the collection of pretty teacups.
Happy week

Patricia said...

What a lovely collection of teacups you have Sheri. I am joining you now: off to make a cuppa using one of my pretties!

Heather Lindstrom said...

Ahhhh Sheri this is such a delicious post. I love your tea cup collection. It looks so bright and cheery. Tea is a most lovely ritual. I drink a cup of green tea almost every day at my office. It's a comfy little ritual that makes me feel healthy too. So happy to be catching up with my favorite bloggers now that I'm feeling better. Thanks for your kind comments on Stylemindchic and yes would love to meet up sometime in spring or summer.
xx, Heather

Oh- I will- I will- I want the second cup from the left-with the flowers on it!!! xo Diana

Purple Flowers said...

Dear Sheri: I would love to enjoy a cup of tea with you. There are several tea houses near where I live. And I thoroughly enjoy my visits there. Great post. I love to see what tea cups other people collect.

Barbara said...

Yes, I love to have a cup of tea with you! Especially poured into one of those gorgeous cups.

Enjoy your tea and have a great day,

Is there still some left in the pot for me dear friend? I find myself again this year not being able to make my blogging rounds when I want...or, some people just simply may be posting way after I've left for work!

Tea time is essential. The ceremony of sitting down long enough to enjoy something so simple, yet so relaxing is necessary to appreciate small water with flavoring...who would think? But it's more than that, isn't it?

Much love to you, and I'll take mine with cream!

My kitchen Mug Shelf has the most un-cordinated collection of mugs.

Not eclectic at all - yours is! - just a big mess: you know, there's one someone gave to the children, other I saw and couldn't resist buying, then there's "that" Aunt that can't remember what she bought us last Christmas and - you guessed right - she buys another set of two mugs ahahahah.

But I love it. I love to think of the person when I grab one. I love to bring the snowmen and reindeer ones to the front when holidays arrive, put them back when it's over but looking forward to see them again.

Well, I really just passed by to leave a hug but you know me there's always time for small talk ahahaha.

Holding you close,

Nely said...

You will have noticed from my blog that I love afternoon tea. Great quote! I also can't resist pretty tea cups and mugs (I don't really have room for any more!!) Your Anthropologie one is gorgeous. They have a wonderful selection and I have bought them as gifts too. I hope 2014 is off to a good a start for you!

I gave up Diet Coke over a year ago... started drinking hot tea in the afternoon. At first it was just to fill in the void of not having that Diet Coke~Now I love having my tea so much and look forward to it! I love your cups~I have two special ones that I only like for tea. Have a great weekend!
