Tea and Scones and new treasures found

It's Winter here and the roses are still blooming.
I am still able to cut quite a few for indoors.
Because it's so cold outside, we aren't sitting out, so I may as well enjoy the blooms where I spend most of my day.

We are having home baked scones hot from the oven, with jam and cream.

I think we will use the blue rose Nikko and some mismatched English china cups

When the roses fade,I still love them for a few more days,
even the dropped petals,get left just where they are.

I even, after tea is over,use the tea setting as my table centrepiece.

We also visited our favourite Vinnies today.
Within 2 minutes of walking through the door,we spotted this gorgeous 16 piece setting.

My hubby even said that we couldn't pass it up at $17 the set.
Now that does not usually happen.

With the gold chargers from Christmas, I think it looks really nice.

We also found another addition to our pink glass collection
I think it is so pretty and quite large.
For $4, a steel

I quite often use fruit as a centrepiece for our table too.
I love the colours with white embroidered linen

My Australian friends,Keep warm 
and for my Northern friends,enjoy your lovely warm weather.

I wouldn't have passed it up either? How could you? Is that a Harmony House pattern? I think I've seen it before. Love your blue and white tea set and your lovely roses. So pretty!

Carolyn Robbins said...

These lovely treasures make a beautiful table.

Karen said...

That is a pretty table setting, love the dishes. Scones have to taste even better when served on such pretty dishes.

Dearest Jeanetteann,

Lovely post, despite your cold weather. Maybe its because of it that you create such cozy settings inside your home. The home baked scones look yummy, as well as the jam and cream.
You got lucky with the new additions to your china and glass collection. Stay warm and cozy.
Yes, for those that love roses, this is valid till the last petal...

Liz said...

Oh Dear! You did get a great deal on your dishes! I can't do that well even at Goodwill. You know I love that gorgeous blue and white set! :)


Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Your new treasures are pure perfection!

Ivy and Elephants said...

What a fabulous set! I love the color with the charger, what a steal!
Tea and fresh baked scones? YES, please!

Jann Olson said...

Hi Jeanette Ann, I can't believe that you can still pick roses in the Winter. Here in Ut everything goes to sleep and is usually blanketed in snow. I love your beautiful tea set. The new found treasures are wonderful and such great prices. Yum, I love scones, but seldom make them. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

Lovely eye candy!

Trish said...

Today was perfect for lovely warm scones and cream!
Your soft roses and tea table are really beautiful, Jeanettann.
The new dinner setting is very pretty too and such a great price.
It's a cold night here in country NSW - hope you're all tucked up nice and warm :-)
Thanks for linking up to Heart & Home.

Jeanetteann, you certainly did find yourself a bargain in St. Vinnies, what treasures! A beautiful set and table setting, and I think us Aussies make the best scones. It all looks delicious. Have a lovely day. x

Martha said...

I love your tea setting -- I could sit right down and eat one of those scones with tea. And what great treasures you found!

Suffia said...

Love the teaset. They look gorgeous with your white table cloth. I love my scones with strawberry jam.

Lavender Cottage said...

Hard to believe you are having cold winter weather while it's so hot here. :-)
Your little table by the window is charming and I like the blue rose china.

Barb said...

Freshly made scones with jam and favourite afternoon tea....Yummy.
Your table setting is very pretty and the pink bowl was a good bargain.
God Bless

What a lovely morning to spend with you & your beautiful tea. The china is spectacular, Jeanetteann.

Actually, our weather is stifling right now & yours sounds very welcoming ... chuckle.

Thank you for your sweet visit to brighten my day.

Have a wonderful week ~

I love the way you set this little round tea table! The roses are pretty. I would love to have some scones with you! And the gold chargers look so fine with your new dishes! Pink glass bowl is really delicate looking with your other peices!
Thanks for letting me peek at your pretty tables!

You're using some soothing blues! The scones and jam and cream are so homey. So nice that you still have roses. I hang on to them as long as possible too. Sounds like you have trained your hubs well! Such pretty dishes!

SwedishCorner-DownUnder...Pernilla said...

Hi again :)
It's a bit tricky with the different states having different public holidays on different dates ;) I try to keep up with Queensland's public holidays after 10+ years here lol - no idea what's happening in the rest of the country!! Wouldn't it be easier if all states had the same public holidays and school terms etc?! Keep warm :)

{ Vintage by LOU LOU } said...

That certainly is one great way to spend Winter inside ~ scones, jam & cream :) And I'm especially loving your old fashioned, traditional roses. I don't grow any yet but I would love to include a rose garden here!!
