Tea-time Tuesday and some kitties, too.

                     Tea is liquid wisdom...I should be a genius.
Now that my large cupboard is back to my favorite white display the blue and white made their way to this little french cupboard. Nothing matches and that's the way I like it.

I love to use blue and white as everyday dishes. 

I come from a long-line of tea-lovers. Here is a photo I cherish taken back in the 60's.
My dear grandmother (so cute in her pearls), Aunt Vera, Cousins Leslie & Cheryl, My mom and Aunt Francis. Boy, those ladies could empty a pot of tea in two shakes of a cat's tail.

I've decided to take some time off come September to help my daughter with her new baby. She is due on the 7th. Right now, I couldn't be any busier. It seems like August has always been the most-vacationing month for my clients. I will be driving everywhere this week. Lots of country drives which I love. The weather here is perfect; sunny, warm and a cool breeze. My kind of weather. Kane will enjoy the car rides, too.

Meet two of my new clients. They are brother & sister and so, so gorgeous. They are polydactyl cats. (more toes than usual) Look closely and you can see the extra thumbs.
You'll see more of them soon. I'm just getting to know them and so far so good.
                                                      Mittens and Midnight

I'm joining Sandi at for Tea-time Tuesday.

hugs, Deb


  1. Our Dad drinks tea every night to relax. Smells good but we will stick with tuna juice.
    Handsome cats with the toesies

  2. I love that photo from the 60s! So neat. I understand why you treasure it so. It does look like your new clients have thumbs - never seen that before!

  3. How lovely the sweet photo of your family and I love their pearls. The blue and white in your french cabinet is very pretty. Having a wonderful business of taking care of kitties must be so fulfilling. The cute brother and sister in the photo are darling!


  4. Oh, I do love your blue and white, Deb! That is a wonderful photo of your family members. Nice to have that. And those kitties are so cute, I like their names! Thanks for joining me for tea time and enjoy your travels and kitties this month.


  5. A fun photo of an old tea party. I like the names of the two black and white cats, the colour combo I always had at home.

  6. HI Deb! Oh, I love your pretty blue and white transferware and your new clients are just as cute as can be.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Hi: I love your precious memories and the lovely tea cups. Your blues and whites are treasures. Blessings, Martha

  8. The sweetest cat I ever had was a 6 toed one. It was a bit of a pain to look after those extra claws but she was worth it. You'll be ready for a bit of a break when the new baby arrives!

  9. Cute names for your new cat clients. They look like my Spunky Doodle!

  10. Missed a ton of your posts, no PC time recently, must try harder! Love this post, what wonderful old photograph. Us lot in England totally agree, nothing like tea! Love those 6 toed cats too, gorgeous and my goodness what BIG paws! x

  11. Thank you! I'll have a cuppa! What a delightful photo -- and yes, tea is quite fine!

  12. Nothing matches is a good thing in a cupboard.

    Mittens and Midnight are good names for a pair of kitties...

  13. What a sweet 'retro' photo! And your new charges look well fed...or as our vet says 'overconditioned' hahameow!
