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