Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - "Drink"


Grab the Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt code and play along!

This week's photo hunt theme is "Drink" and I decided I should go with the most popular drink in my household currently which is ... tea! There is nothing better on a cold March evening (or any cold evening come to think of it!) than a nice hot cup of tea.

This picture is of a teapot and matching mugs that was given to me by my Great Aunt Del when she was cleaning out her apartment not too long ago. I have a collection of teapots (18 as of last count) and there's always room for more! I also have quite the selection of teas and a lovely wooden tea chest that was given to me this past Christmas to keep them in.

Never let it be said that we are not civilized in this part of Connecticut! Or at least in my small part of it! Now everyone go enjoy their green beer or Irish whiskey or whatever you're raising a glass of to celebrate this St. Patrick's Day! I think I'll have a cup of Earl Grey - hot!

  1. See I shouldn't have been so lazy, I could've done the same but with a latte and the coffee pot.

    Nice tea set.

  2. That's a gorgeous tea service. I have just learned to like tea. My mom always gave it to us kids when we were sick so it had that medicinal quality to it. But after I learned there was more to it and found the Stash Tea catalog...I love it!

  3. What a pretty set!
    Hope you have a happy St. Patricks day.

    I wish I like hot tea -- it would give me more variety of warm drinks to choose from. But for some reason I just can't stomach it. I drink drink iced tea, though.

    Thanks for visiting!

    I love japanese green tea. I used to make it alot for my husband and children. I will again, as soon as I get back to Hawai'i. I love that teapot set you have.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Beautiful tea pot. I can never keep things that nice around here without breaking them.

  7. I like tea. Mostly drink it cold and sweet tho hot tea is good sometimes! =)

  8. I finally got thru. Blogger wouldn't let me post here earlier. They were reporting problems.

    I love your tea set. It's very pretty and what fun to drink tea from it. Great idea for this theme. Have a great weekend.

    What a beautiful family heirloom you have to pass on one day... I wish I liked tea but I just can't force it down!

    I have some pic's up too.

  10. Earl Grey is one of my favorites! I love the tea pot! It is so beautiful! My photos are up!

    What a beautiful tea set. Wow - you have 18 tea-pots. Awesome :)

    I do enjoy once in a while a nice hot cup of tea. But I prefer Chai Tea, with a little honey...

    Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm.

  12. That's a nice tea, but I prefer mine to be Ice cold.
    Thanks for the visit.

  13. That's a beautiful tea set, and so important to you too! How about green tea for this weekend! ;)

  14. Wow, those are some big tea cups, normally tea cups are a lot smaller. I like tea but normally ice tea. Cool tea set though.

  15. Aye, is there no Irish tea? I love it iced and sweet, as all southern folks do. Have a grand St. Patrick's Day! This is a beautiful set of cups and an exquisite tea pot.

  16. thats a beautiful set!
    love Earl Grey, too ... can i join you? ;)

    happy weekend!

  17. Lovely lovely teapot and cups. I've taken up drinking tea when I realized that I was allergic to coffee.

    Great choice for The Hunt this week. I'd love to see all your teapots.

  18. Those are beautiful! I was brought up to drink tea rather than coffee and it is still my "comfort drink".

    Thanks for visiting :)

  19. Beautiful tea set! I love unsweetened Earl Gray. And would love to see all of your 18 tea pots!
    happy hunt and happy St Patrick's Day

    Tea is my drink of choice. This is a really beautiful set.

  24. Girl, I'm with ya on the in the south, you might as well cut off our heads if you don't have some cold sweet tea in the fridge!

  25. Lovely tea set! Very pretty. :) Nice choice for the theme. :)

  26. Put the kettle on and make me a brew!
    I will join for a cuppa.

    Those are beautiful!

  28. lovely cups! Really loved them. :)

  29. A very nice chinese tea service ! I like apple tea very much. I suggest you put some rhum in your Grey Earl to make it even hotter ! Then you are really ready for St. Patrick's, lol !

  30. Nice pic of the tea set! "Mrs. Bulldog" is the tea drinker here, though I drink it when I'm sick. I think she'd actually pay an admission price to see the rest of your tea service collection! Well done, Linda!

    Lovely tea set - really pretty photo - and I love your blog

    Wishing you happy days ahead

  42. Very cute :)

    Thanks for stopping by mine :)

  43. How beautiful. there's something about tea that makes you want to put it in something special. I'll drink coffee out of any old mug. But, I have two beautiful ones that I reserve for tea. Why is that? Must be the "civilized" part.
    Thanks for visiting mine!

  44. Well, I am taking to the wine bottle and CDs. A bit of maudlin becfore starting to laugh again; tomorrow.
