I had a wonderful time away at my quilting retreat. I have been busy since I returned home and have had a bit of a hard time getting back to my blogging. That does seem to happen to me. I still had all the Easter things to take down when I got back. so spent Saturday doing that chore. I decided to put out my Carlton Ware in my hutch for a change up. I love my foxglove pattern. Most of my collection is the green foxglove pattern. I started my collection about 25 years ago. Most of it was made in the late 1930's and early 1940's.
It's very springy and works well with my Tasha Secret Garden books. I will share more about the books and a doll I have when I do my post on dolly Thursday.
I love the pattern. I have seen it in yellow and white, but I like the green. I did see on pink piece online once and it was really pretty. The raised pieces were painted by hand. Foxglove are just so very English.
This teapot below is quite different and a little different green in color but I do like it. It looks like primrose to me and don't you just love the handle!
This teapot is called Primula. I guess that's the name of the sweet little flower on the teapot.
I was very happy to find the toast rack years ago. The piece on the right, is called a jug. I just found this piece for $2 and couldn't pass it up. I have one but......
An assortment of very small dishes are perfect for butter, jams or little candy treats on the tea table.
I'm not sure who made this lovely little set of berry bowls. I had to have them. They are great for berries of a small helping of a dessert.
It was fun to post this on my Tasha group today. I would also like to link up with Bernideen's Tea Time, Cottage and Garden and Sandi atRose Chintz Cottage-No Place Like Home
