Last weekend I was at an estate sale and spotted this teapot and the demitasse cup and saucer. They have that English look that I just love! It has flowers, little ladies, cottages and gardens. I'm not sure if there is a word for this "look" but I love it. I mixed it with a few goodies I had already and It just all goes together and makes me happy!
The teapot has the cutest shape! I couldn't get my eyes off of it. I couldn't find a price, so I asked the lady working the sale. She said it had a little chip under the lid and said, $5. I was just looking at it and was going to take it and she said, oh how about $3! Yes! It is adroable.
I just love the little cup and saucer. I'm such a sucker for cottages and this one has a thatched roof too!
I had the cake plate and have used it many times for tea. It has been a favorite for years.
Such a pretty lady in her garden. These pieces often have blue trim...another selling point!
I also was able to buy this lovely cottage small table cloth that just matches perfectly and was in such
good condition. It goes well with the teacup embroidered little napkins I already had in my collection.
Of course, I just couldn't leave this sweet book of poems there! It was first printed in 1913. My copy is from 1916. It is filled with interest poems with helpful messages for the reader.
Happy Tea Time Thursday! It continues to be hot here in Oregon. I have been drinking more iced tea than hot tea. I miss my afternoon tea times with Jimmy. COLD beverages are in order these days. Stay cool.
