Tea Time Thursday #87

Happy Tea Time Thursday! As Queen Elizabeth becomes the longest reigning monarch in England, I just have to share a few goodies that I have featured in the past. Isn't it exciting to be living right now to say God Save the Queen!  I think it's so very wonderful that she also has the longest marriage of any monarch in England....68 years of marriage. AMAZING! I love Queen Victoria and I never imagined that Queen Elizabeth would pass up the years of service that Queen Victoria gave.

This is one of my favorite teacups. It was made to celebrate the Queen's coronation in 1952. I have many Queen Elizabeth cup and saucers, but I especially like the green color and the image on the cup.

The cup and sauce also show the Queen's crown. Stunning.

The cup is bone china and was made by the Aynsley china company. I love Aynsley patterns.

Another favorite item in my collection is my teapot that commemorates the Queen's silver jubilee in 1977. It's trimmed with silver, which is used in silver anniversaries. Most teapots and teacups are trimmed in gold.

The teapot is made by Sadler. Notice the little top on the lid...I think it looks like a silver crown.

A few weeks ago, my Jimmy brought home a stack of magazines from an estate sale. He was given them for free. They are just wonderful I am so enjoying reading through them. Most of them are from the 1970's.

This is a look at a table of contents so you can get a little look at what is inside. Lots of fun reading ahead for me!

I found this article to be very interesting about celebrating the Queen's birthday...her OFFICIAL birthday!

Our weather has turned hot again. It's an iced tea day, I'm afraid. Rain may return next week, so a cup of hot tea will have to wait. Enjoy!

Its time like these it makes you proud to be British. I often wonder about the stories behind some of your wonderful British/English tableware and how they got to America.
