Tea Time Thursday #15

My Jimmy finds such treasures when he is out shopping the Estate Sales on the weekends. Look at this BEAUTIFUL teacup he came home with last week! It is just so pretty and so perfect for spring, spring flowers and Mother's Day!

I love all the colors and the design is just wonderful.Even the leaves are lovely. Nice little handle too.

It is a Paragon cup and saucer which I really love to find for my collection. Of course, it is English.

I got out one of my tea books that I haven't enjoyed for years. I thought it was great with the cup and saucer and perfect for Tea Time Thursday. A PERFECT Cup of Tea by Pat Ross. It is filled with great images and ephemera. Pat Ross edited this book that was originally written by a New York journalist named Arthur Gray in 1903. It really is a fun book to read and just enjoy!  

Jimmy found another treasure...a Cranberry Glass lemonade pitcher with 6 matching glasses. Isn't the design just darling?

Lots of sweet little details and a darling design. Not sure if I could really use it to serve lemonade!
I do love cranberry glass! Thank you Jim for such a special gift.

I am still trying to finish up my garden work. I need to get it done before the weekend. Gina and Eric are coming down on Saturday to take me out to dinner for Mother's Day! YEAH!!!!

OMG, Linda. The cranberry glass pitcher and glasses are beyond gorgeous. Jimmy has a fabulous eye. Cranberry glass here is extremely expensive and a pitcher and glasses like that? Not in my price range. You got a treasure.

The cup and saucer are lovely, too.

Thanks for sharing. Susan
