It's me and my keyboard ~ and Ascona ~ today !

I want my world to touch base with the elegance of TUESDAY CUPPA TEA bloggers  . always a fun party-way to feel more connected to this wonderful work of people God has placed on the planet.  The linky party is open today.....   Do make a visit...join the party .....   I'll list my friends at the front of this post!!

First reflections on my drive to work today.... its abt 17 degrees on a Monday am....  I've begun the BREW of teabags in my Teavana thingy-a-ma-jig and my super hot teapot!

I've had my morning oatmeal, friend-visits and chats.   Computer on.... and I've delayed taking my meds because the glucose monitor reported super-lows on Superbowl Sunday!   Then it's a high this morning via monitor reading of abt 269 mg/dl.

I'll sip the mini cup of Castleton Ascona cream-gold-blue floral teacup... This single cup and sauce is so endearing to me.... (early 1950's - like by birthday!!)  It has a footed cup and the saucer has a gold pearl edge that makes me want to just run my fingers over again and again.    I can better adjust the level of heat by which I totally enjoy sipping my tea.... (a small bit of ginger crystals added)!


  1. Lovely Beverley...I love Castleton and this is an especially pretty one! I have a thingy too...but not from Tevana, same thing I am sure. Works so well! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  2. How pretty! I particularly like the saucer's unique gold pearl edge.

  3. What a beautiful teacup, Beverly! This is my first visit to your blog and I enjoyed it. I'm going to peruse some of your earlier posts - seems we may have a lot in common (Christianity and tea to begin with...)
    Have a wonderful week.
    Blessings, Beth

  4. What a pretty set. I like the idea of enjoying running your fingertip over the rim!

  5. What a beautiful tea cup and saucer! So delicate and lovely. I have never heard of ginger crystals, but that sounds good... I will have to check into that. Thank you for sharing with us today. :)

  6. That looks like a wonderful cup of tea. I Think your teapot looks like it works well. The Ascona teacup and saucer are really lovely!
    I am so glad you linked to Friends Sharing Tea.


SO glad you stopped by to make this world a better place !
