Tea with Friends - Crystal Finds

It's time for tea on Tuesday again and I'm joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday, Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses for Tea Party Tuesday and Katherine at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor also for Tea Time Tuesday.

Until I get my new dining room set, I'm still without most of my decorations and tea party accessories as they're packed away for now.  I was able to set this cuddly Easter bunny, candy dish and small cake plate in a corner and under the dome is the porcelain egg I crafted a number of years ago.

This is the crystal cream and sugar set I like to use best as it's dainty and just the right size with cups and saucers.  I bought it at a garage sale for $5 and think that was a good deal.

I was pleased to find a tiny pair of silver tongs in a tea store as I like to serve brown sugar cubes but also offer honey.

One day while browsing in an antique store I saw this jam pot in the same crystal pattern as the cream and sugar and knew I had to have it.  The opening where the spoon sits has a small chip as the cashier pointed out but, as I like to say, 'it adds character'.

Blogger has been acting rather strangely as I post and won't let me centre all my pictures but I've heard others have been given grief by it today too.


  1. Your crystal is just lovely! I would love to join you for a cup of tea.
    Happy Easter!

  2. Crumpets and tea sound wonderful Judith. Beautiful crystal cream and sugar set. Pictures all seem to be order.

  3. Hi Judith,
    Oh, I just love your crystal cream and sugar set and that little jam pot is lovely! Love the sugar tongs as well. What wonderful bargains! I am so happy you have joined me again this week for Tea Time Tuesday. I have added your link to my post which will be up just after mid-night. Have a beautiful Easter week.


  4. Hello there Judith,

    This is just so lovely! That cream and sugar, jam pot, cloche and the silver sugar tongs are beautiful as well! 'I will be right over for tea'!~ Of course the bunnies must partake as well!.., Hehe

    Please also pop by and visit me for my 24th,'Tuesday Tea for Two', blog tea party meme my dear.

    I have just become a follower of yours, perhaps you may also follow me, (as it's easier to stay in touch and visit back and forth from time to time)..,

    Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

  5. Hello Judith,

    you made a good purchase with this crystal set, because you can use it with every coffee or tea set. And how nice will it look at a breakfast table with the marmelade jar.

    Nice greetings,

  6. Your crystal tea things are lovely. I like your mini Easter tablescape too.

  7. Your crystal is very pretty and perfect to use for tea. Thanks for joining the tea party today.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  8. Hi Judith! I have been experiencing some difficulty with Blogger as well, but they seem to be trying to fix the problem(s). I hope it straightens out for you soon... Love the little bunny candy dish you have here today, and the silver tongs too! This is the first time, however, that I have ever heard of brown sugar cubes! I will have to keep an eye open for those! ~tina

  9. Oh, that jam pot and just perfect and I love your little tongs too. Wonderful tea things :)


  10. I have a jam pot just like yours. Somehow jam tastes better when spooned from it--and I love the "jeweled" look of jam in a crystal pot.


  11. You've found some lovely crystal pieces...all perfect for a beautiful tea setting.
    Have a blessed Easter,

  12. Love all of your tea accessories!! I have a similar sugar and creamer on a tray. It was my hubby's grandmother's. I will try to remember to post it next week.The crystal pieces made such an elegant TEA setting!!Happy Easter!!

  13. Your crystal is beautiful, and I love your little tea tongs! I have similar ones. Have a good Easter week, Dotsie

  14. How charming your Easter Vignette is! I love your egg, you made in the wonderful little cake plate. Your cream and sugar crystal set is lovely, as is the sugar tongs. Now, the jam pot is the one I just adore! How wonderful! How I would love to find one! I use my crystal a lot! So, now I want a jam pot too! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely Treasures for Tea Time Tuesday! I just love your jam pot! Oh, I said that already. lol So pretty!
