Tea – Cat’s – 1950’s

I know it sounds like an odd combination.  I know you like tea….. do you love cats and/or the 1950’s?  I thought it would be fun to combine these things today.

Cats have a way to seemingly be able to be everywhere at once and being a part of everything going on in a household.   Our dear Cleo enjoyed drinking his milk from a stemmed glass. But if disturbed during this daily ritual, this is what you could expect!  (notice the milk on his whiskers)


The little plum pot is steeping a special black blend from Babbington’s Tearoom located at the foot of the Spanish Steps in Rome, Italy.  Babbington’s logo is a black cat. 

A fifties martini glass, rimmed with honey pearls sounds fun to me today.  I’ve topped my tea with non-fat milk foam to honor all pet cats.   I’m becoming quite fond of this tea/foam combination.  

The Fifties were filled with such fun times.  Many younger than I find it fun to use the 50’s as a theme or to  dress in the period.  The  fifties was one of the most fun decades of my life.    I thought it would be fun to share this website with you.  Enjoy a Belgian dark chocolate with tea while you watch it.

Cats and tea are definitely a fun combination. Love the idea of a frothy tea too. Now who is honored here? What a fun 50's addition. I am guessing Val with cats and costumes.

Never having a cat, I can't relate much to cats, but I remember the mid-to-late 50's. The website video was fun to watch. Your tea latte looks delicious!

Cleo looks like a very special cat. I like his personality as expressed in that photograph.

I remember when you visited Babbington's tea room. How special that our plum teapot is able to brew some of that special tea!
