Blue Calico

A slash of Blue

A slash of Blue—
A sweep of Gray—
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky—
A little purple—slipped between—
Some Ruby Trousers hurried on—
A Wave of Gold—
A Bank of Day—
This just makes out the Morning Sky.

Emily Dickinson

 Hello everyone. Today I am having tea in the Sunroom. Would you like to join me?

The little tea canister was a gift from my daughter

Twinings Lady Grey Tea is always a good choice.

Cachepot~-Andrea by Sadek - Manor House Interior~Planted with a blue African Violet

Mrs. Whaley Entertains . This is an interesting read plus some nice recipes.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

Hi Clara
Your Calico china is pretty, the tea canister was a nice addition. The mauve violets and even the tea package match, making your table quite lovely.

Beautiful china and violets are just so dainty and pretty. Everything reminds me of my Gammy who was very elegant, loved serving tea and whose favorite color was lavender.

I would truly enjoy having tea with you. However, I prefer ice tea.

Happy Blue Monday, Clara! Be sure to check out my Kindle Fire giveaway.

Oh my goodness!! I have a few pieces of Calico Burleigh. I love blue and white dishes. I also have, I believe, Mrs Whaley's first book...Mrs. Whaley and The Charleston Garden. It's a very good read if you haven't read it. I think I'll read it again, it's been years since I read it. No wonder I love your blog, we're kindred spirits.

Hello Clara,
Your tea setting is gorgeous! I love the blue calico. I have not been so lucky to find a set from England! You have set such a beautiful tea table. I especially love your little birdie there.

My Little Home and Garden said...

You have all the makings of a lovely tea. Combined with a good book, what could be better as a little break.

I have "ALWAYS" loved the blue calico AND I've always intended to grace my table with some. LOVE YOUR POST! My VERY VERY Favorite is the little tea canister(((LOVE)))...
The other day in GW I found my VERY FIRST PIECE. It is "ROYAL CROWNFORD STAFFORSHIRE ENGLAND"Calico Bell! Is that the same company that makes yours? The pattern is exactly the same.
Have a fun weekend,
