Morning tea in pink glass

One of my passions is pink depression glass
I love it, especially when the light shines through it.
Today we are taking morning tea in the sun room,as the Spring sunshine is lovely
That is until this afternoon,when a windy bit of wild weather is forecast

We are having Tulsi blend Indian tea with pomegranate and green

Fresh sliced pears and orange

With yoghurt

                               Orange cake, this cake is a firm texture as it's made with the whole
                                                 orange,peel and everything and is quite delicious.

I even like washing up when I use nice glassware or china,
I like to touch it  and look at it, it's so pretty.

I so love Freesias, a dear friend gave them to me from her garden
for my birthday,they smell so beautiful

They look so sweet in my cherub vase

I did so enjoy today's morning tea.
I hope you did too

I love your pink glass dishes! A wonderful collection. They always shout summer to me. I love freesias as well. We lived once in an area where I could grow them, and had them in tubs around the stairs into the house. Such a lovely fragrance! Thanks for sharing and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

How wonderful to have a great pink depression collection! The serving bowl with the sweet spoon is my favorite. I love your spring flowers in the angel and glass vase so sweet! It is great to see the change of seasons in Australia.

Thanks, Pam

Jeanetteann, I sure needed that little break for a spot of tea. How sweet of you to share your fruit, cake and tea with us in that lovely glassware! Like you, I don't mind washing up such lovelies. It's just another way to enjoy them. Nicely done!

I don't collect it, but pink is my fav depression glass. SO delicate and pretty. I enjoy washing my pretty things too! Kinda crazy. I suppose it should be all the same! The orange cake looks luscious!

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

I love pink Depression glass too, so I immediately wanted to pop over to see yours! Your recipes sound wonderful, especially that orange cake! I hope you'll share the recipe some day. My MIL gave me her 4 cups and 2 saucers in Cherry Blossom, by Jeannette Glass. I must find 2 more saucers, but I've used 2 for tea with a friend, and did a post on it too! Hope you'll visit back! ~Zuni

I don't know what the pink glass reminds me of---calm moments and childhood tea parties and best dresses and gloves, perhaps, with the prospect of a lovely time with friends. It's such a charming table you set, and so welcoming and sweet.

There's just SOMETHING about that clear pink . . .

I also love pink depression glass and your morning tea looks so lovely! I have the same dish rack and I love the way my pink depression glass shines on it while drying as well!
Thanks for sharing your pieces!
