A tea rose

well not really, but a little tongue in cheek picture for T for Tuesday.
This is one of my old tea cups and saucers, with a rose in it.  Why?  Well, Mother's day which was this Sunday past is one where I generally get a bit depressed, but my hubby decided that some flowers were in order even though I am not a mother, but he said that they were from Tammy, Reubin and Ruby (The cat, dog and puppy respectively), who are my babies, which I thought was sweet.
Here are the roses, and they are fragrant ones, but as I was putting them in a vase, one of the buds fell off and so as not to waste it, I put it in the teacup with some water and as it opened, it filled all the cup.  I think it looks beautiful, so I thought I would share it with you for T Tuesday over at Elizabeth's blog.

Happy T day!


  1. What a great idea to put the rose in the teacup, I bet it smelt really nice

  2. That turned into one big rose. The others are beautiful, too. I can almost smell them here.

    You are very lucky, because Bleubeard knows I'm not his mother, so he didn't get me anything.

    Thanks for sharing this tongue-in-cheek post with us for T today.

  3. Hello and Happy T Day! What a sweet husband you have, love those flowers! Pretty cup and saucer too.
    Thank you for sharing and have a great day!

  4. your husband had such a sweet idea :) that cup is beautiful -with or without the rose.

  5. Awww Gorgeous rose. Glad you didn't waste it.
    I am with you on the MD thing - not being a mother myself, my lovely Hubby too buys me little things from our Dog and the chooks. We are blessed you know to have lovely Men in our lives.
    Happy T Day.

  6. The roses are beautiful--I liked how the "tea rose" bloomed to fill the cup. Happy T Day!

  7. Happy T-day!
    Gorgeous roses, and the one that opened, while in the tea cup, is a perfect photo opt! Love your cup and saucer too.

  8. Gorgeous roses and the fallen one in your pretty tea cup is oh so special too!
    Mother's Day can be a hard day for lots of reasons...
    at least it is over for another year :)
    Wishing you a Happy T Day

  10. Hi Vicki, I'm a furbaby mom too! We share that together and I totally think that counts! Hey, you have to love, feed, clean, and care for those 4-legged friends, so why not call yourself a mom! Your husband was sweet to still bring you flowers too! Happy T-day!
