Tea Time Thursday #103

Happy Tea Time Thursday! Oh, it is the most wonderful spring day here in the Pacific Northwest! It is a bit windy, but the temps are in the 60's today! I guess that is why I am thinking PINK today for my post. Spring is in the air.

I adore Shelley tea cups and china. I think it is so romantic and dainty and just pretty. Jimmy loves it and when he is out scouting, he always has his eyes open for a Shelley. He was lucky to find a trio. I get to "borrow" the set for awhile as it is slated for his upcoming show. Isn't it just soooo pretty?
Soft pink flowers with a touch of soft pink trim...ahhhh.

The name of this pattern is Bridal Rose. Such a perfect name. How lovely would this be if you had a set for a sweet bridal shower? Swoon.....

Soft pink trim with tiny pink roses inside the cup favorite!

My dear friend Ann gave this tea time pin to me years ago as a gift. I think it was a birthday present. The pink roses with a touch of green makes for the perfect paring with the Shelley.

This is a tiny covered box that my sister Alisa gifted me years ago too. I keep it out in my tea room, under a little dome glass cover. It is a favorite of mine too.

It opens for tiny treasures. I actually found something I had tucked away inside that I was looking for the other day! FUNNY! It will probably appear on another post someday.

So think pink and spring and roses and's coming soon, I promise!

It's also time for another tea cup or mug exchange with my dear friend Stephanie at THE ENCHANTING ROSE. It is open to anyone who wishes to play! I have done all 8 of them and it is just so much fun. Do pop over and read some testimonials that she has posted today. I hope you choose to have some fun.

I am also linking up to Sandi at ROSE CHINTZ COTTAGE. Sh has a lovely NO PLACE LIKE HOME party each week. It's actually starts on Mondays, but I like up on Thursday after my Tea Time Thursday post.

I recognize the Shelley Trio as one I sold at my shop in the past. The little pieces looks so sweet with it. You may find it hard to part with. Maybe Jimmy can "give you a deal"! $00.00

Stephanie said...

Such a delightful and sweet post, dear friend. Your Shelley trio is oh-so-lovely and feminine :)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for mentioning the exchange - you are a sweetie. Have a wonderful weekend! Love and hugs to you!

Roses, my favourite flowers, are so sweet on the Shelley trio. How can you bear to part with it? It's so very dainty and your little pin looks darling with it. I never see Shelley around here. I have only one teacup which I treasure and it was a shower gift many years ago. Thank you for sharing this lovely post with us and enjoy your day, dear Linda.

Oh my this Shelly teacup, saucer and plate are exquisite. I love the shape of the cup and the pattern is so pretty and delicate. What a pity it won't live with you for very long.

I love the little pin with the teacup theme. So unusual and pretty! And the little covered box is lovely! Thank you for sharing!
