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 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:
