Tea Time Tuesday #121

Happy Tea Time Tuesday! I hae been waiting for this day to share this most delightful breakfast tea set that I found at an estate sale last Friday. I walked into the sale and saw it on the table and just about squealed! I was afraid to look at the price, but it was $30 and I had some cash in my pocket!
I think it's just so very sweet and I knew I was going to be sharing some Peter Rabbit things this week as it's Beatrix 150th birthday on Thursday. Gina is home again, so I am hoping to do a little tea on Thursday.

Peter was pretty happy with my new purchase too! Fresh roses from the garden to help celebrate.

The breakfast tea set has a sweet teapot, open sugar bowl, creamer, teacup and a little tray.
The colors are just so Peter Rabbit!

The sweet little pink rose sitting on top of the teapot just makes the set perfect.

This is the markings on the bottom of the items. Each piece is marked.

The tea for today is Sleepy Rabbit...from an Oregon Nursery...Nichols Garden Nursery. It's a great place to order seeds and plants. Yummy tea too.

This wonderful book is a treasure. I found it last year in Vermont on our great trip. It is charming. I so would love to visit Beatrix Potter's home. I don't think it's meant to be, but it's fun to see all the photos and dream.

So Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter! Thank you for all the stories about Peter and his friends. They all make me so very happy.

Linking up with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage but she is taking a break until August as her family is visiting.

What a gorgeous breakfast set, Linda. I love that sweet rose on top. I too love Peter Rabbit stories of his adventures, together with his friends. These books are always a favourite with me. Cute figurines.

Dear Linda:
I love your new personal tea set. Very cute and with the figurines. I think that is the same book I have but a different cover. There was a smaller book years back but I didn't keep one and regret that. What a darling posting!

No Linda - I think your book is different! Also, please link to my Friday "Tea In The Garden" !

Your breakfast set is so "Peter Rabbit"! I just the love the sweet pink rose on the top. I really enjoy reading about the life of Beatrix Potter, her little stories, and searching for her figurines. We lived in England when I was a teenager and my sisters and I plan a trip back to England to see our old home, school, and visit Hilltop Farm and Jane Austen's home. Happy Birthday Beatrix Potter!

That is such a beautiful breakfast set and the perfect colour match for Peter Rabbit.
