Tea Time Thursday #99


I can't believe that I have done 99 Tea Time Thursday posts! It's so much fun to post about tea and tea time related items. I do love it. I have taken a few breaks here and there, but I think 99 in a pretty big number.

I wanted to post this little set on my Tuesday Treasures, but wanted to save it for today. I recently found this at an antique show and of course, just fell in love with it. There are no marking on it. I love the delicate colors and isn't it funny that it also has a twisted handle, like my transferware jugs. It almost has a lusterware look. It's very delicate and just screams spring....or at least Valentines.


The teapot is four sided...a bit different. It's probably a 4 cup teapot.


Such a sweet little creamer. Don't you love the scalloped edging around the top?


The covered sugar bowl has the same shape as the teapot. It quite heavy with the handles.



January is all most over! We had some nice weather earlier this week but the rains decided to make a return appearance. My goodness, it was just pouring again. I decided it was time to start adding some Valentine things in my blog, as the lovable holiday will soon be here.  I love vintage Valentines.


I have had this vintage Valentine for years. The envelope is made of a heavy paper. It is a bit fragile, so I don't open it too often.


This heart lives inside and has twine to hang it up if you wish.


This sweet card is handmade and just charming. I love the message and the little birds inside.



This card is really nice. It has a wooden pink heart on a stick so it looks like a parasol. It's just sweet and pretty.


I hope you enjoyed Tea Time Thursday. Think hearts and flowers and pretties!

Your teapot, sugar bowl and creamer are beautiful. I love the flowers meandering around each piece and that scalloped edge is so pretty. The four sided shape of each piece is so interesting. Those vintage Valentine's cards are lovely.

What a great tea set, so charming. Love the handle, so different. Your paper Valentine's are adorable and I am especially fond of the heavy paper envelope with the cherub scrap on it and heart inside. Very neat!
Have a great weekend!
