Ahh, fall finally arrives today! The U.S. Naval Observatory says it arrives at 7:05 p.m. EST tonight, if you want to get technical about it, but at any rate I'm all for claiming fall at the earliest possible opportunity! It doesn't much feel like fall here in Georgia, where the highs are still in the less-than-autumnal 90s this week, but I have faith that cooler days are in store. To put us in a fall-ish mood, I gathered some old faithful tea collectibles in fall colors and designs, like this tablecloth with a teapot ...
... and teacup design.
Here's an acorn-bedecked detail from a serving platter I love.
And here's a clay teapot planter in a perfect fall hue.
Even my tea jewelry is turning fall-toned!
And this basket type teapot may be getting a pot of mums soon. Hmmm.
This little "Tea Bags" teapot with a teacup lid is not in my beloved pink shades, but I like it just the same.
Finally, we have to have appropriate cups and saucers for the different seasons of the year, so I like to pull out my Johnson Brothers Harvest Time pattern and greet fall with a cup of tea. Happy Fall, Y'all!
