Pink Tea for a Cause

Welcome friends for tea this week.  Since October is breast cancer awareness month, Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage is hosting a special pink tea.
The pink ribbon for breast cancer is readily identified and I am fortunate to say that I have no family or friends with this cancer.  I do heartily support it and wear the pink ribbon in various ways; here on some of my workout wear.
 The Avon 'Believe in Hope Crusade' wrap,
and my Avon pink ribbon pin. 
Many stores have displays of pink items, with a portion of sales going to breast cancer.
And when Proven Winners introduced the hydrangea 'Invincibelle Spirit', it was a fundraiser for this worthy cause too.
 I baked some sugar cookie teapots with pink sprinkles for us.
 Cut a flower from one of the geraniums that's still blooming.
 This is a little creamer that was my mother's and it was always on the table when we had tea.  It says 'Dicken's Days' under the scene.
 The fairy 'Hope' is joining us for tea,
as is this sweet little pink bird
My teacup today is Victoriana Rose by Paragon, shown here from another tea.
Thank you Sandi for hosting a pink tea for this special cause and to Karen Valentine for this blog button.  I hope you'll visit Rose Chintz Cottage to visit with the other guests over tea.

  17. Hi Judith,
    this was a wonderful pink past. Love all the pieces, which you have nicely displayed. How pretty is this pink plant. Must look wonderful in a garden.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  18. Great post! As a breast cancer survivor I alwys got checked yearly prior to diagnosis.
    One yr. I was clear and the next it was not. The cells can change quickly so YES get out there and get a mammo EVERY yr.
    The sooner a women can get on top of this disease the better off to survive. I am a testamony to 2 cancers that I beat! Both detected in early stages. Hurrah!!
    love and light naturegirl

  23. Hi Judith,
    I enjoyed your pink post in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness so much! I know so many family and friends that have had this terrible disease. Your pink rose teacup is so precious and your cookies so perfect for today! Have a good evening!

  24. Hi Judith! A joy to catch up with you after so long by the wayside. Such a thoughtful teatime in keeping with the spirit of the PINK!

    Your Notecards were stunning! I need to plan something for next month - but wait! That will be wedding week for my baby girl - not sure what busy I'll be up to then!

    I thoroughly enjoyed your information about the natural "chop and drop" compost and will pass that along to my husband who will soon be putting our garden to bed for the season. What vibrant color we had this year - and I hardly had a chance to capture it properly on film for Blogland! I'll grab the dead and dying shots and do a garden post on that!

    Lovely as always to visit you!

  25. Judith your little tea is lovely. Thank you for visiting me and for your sweet comments. x

  26. Hi Judith,
    Love your pretty pinks and all for a good cause! I have been fortunate to not have breast cancer in my family either. Sugar cookies, always a pretty yummy treat!

  27. Pretty pinks for a wonderful cause. Your little milk pitcher is adorable... no doubt holding fabulous childhood memories. though Frankie Flowers is saying wet and damp - I'm wishing you a warm week ahead - xo C. (HHL)

  28. Hi Judith,
    What a lovely pink tea surround by your supportive breast cancer treasures. Love your tea cup and those cookies look so yummy.
    Love your sweet milk pitcher.
    Always a delight to visit you.

    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  29. A lovely tea for a great cause, Judith. My mother had breast cancer.

  30. Hello Judith, this is a lovely tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness - I hope someday they find a cure. Your pinks are marvelous, from the teacup to the fairy. I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  31. This is lovely, Judith. You really are in the pink. I have that same Paragon teacup I bought in the 70's when we lived in London. It is precious. What an unusual geranium.
    Those tea cookies look yummy.
    Great post.
