Come on By for a Cup of Tea

Welcome ladies to another T Day. Time to share our drink related posts over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.
Today I invite you for tea or coffee. Or would you prefer hot cocoa?
Stop by my house and I will welcome you in for tea or coffee, your pick.
I think noontime is a good time for T, don't you?
And if it's cool outside I will put a fire on in the fireplace.
Be let me move this beautiful primitive fireplace screen first.
So pull up a chair and warm yourself.

And let me entertain you with some music while the water heats.
The table is already set and ready for you.
I'm using my best china.
After we drink our tea (or coffee if you prefer),  I will show you my giant model of the Queen Elizabeth II.

And my original N. C. Wyeth painting.

Or perhaps you'd enjoy my antique Noah's Ark set.

My house is really a museum, isn't it?

All photos are from the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
Thanks Elizabeth for being our hostess every week so we can share our drink related posts with each other.
And thanks to you ladies for stopping by for a visit.
Happy T day everyone.

A fabulous post Erika. I loved the story you set as we looked at the photos from your visit to the museum.
The tea table set with the ornate and fine china looked awesome.

Oh Erika, this is the most incredible and super impressive post. I really LOVED you taking us with you to the museum, but more than that, I loved the way you guided us through "your" house and tale. It was most impressive and I LOVED it. Thanks for sharing this truly unique take on T this Tuesday.
