Tea Time Play

 
 
 
 
Tea Time fun!

Do you just love to play with your camera when taking photos for your blog?
This week I played a bit.
I found a picture I liked in a Tasha Tudor book and tried to achieve the same feel.
Now it didn't turn out at all like the photo I was looking at,
but still I had fun.
Then there was a yumminess too, as I sipped this
lovely Darjeeling tea and nibbled fresh raspberries in winter.

Do you have plans to play this weekend?
Oh I hope you do.
Playing and sipping tea are good for the soul.

Hi Marilyn, Your blue and white is lovely, as is your red transferware teapot. You've done well in playing with your camera - lovely flowers and tablecloth contribute to make this very appealing to the eye. The raspberries look good, too. Have a nice wknd!

I love your photos! Yes, I do have plans for the weekend. I'm going to a Sisters On The Fly potluck in Eugene tomorrow - riding with one of my Sisters. After the potluck we (the group) will go to the Good Living and Home Show where some of our Sisters will have their vintage trailers on display. One of the founding Sisters will have her trailer there, too. That's my plan.

Hi Marilyn,

Your photo's look wonderful. I like you porcelain. I believe you call it transferware? It is very pretty!

My youngest daughter and I will paint some wall tomorrow and perhaps have a look at our allotment garden to see how it looks like with a layer of snow.

Happy weekend!

Love seeing the red and blue transferware together. I never thought of that. I think I need to play with mine now. Love your photos of them on the vintage tablecloth. I may need to look for one of those now. I used to find them with Karen when she was into them.

These are lovely shots, Marilyn! I got a book about food photography that I hope will help me take more "artful" food photos like these this year. I have a feeling I may have to give up my point-and-shoot and return to my nice big digital camera instead!

I thought I had commented on it, but then I realized I looked at it with plans and was interrupted! I love all these photos -- and raspberries on blue china are so perfect!
