Roses of Yesterday

“I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday sweet and fragrant, between its leaves.” 
― L.M. MontgomeryAnne of the Island

Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage   is getting ready for her Valentine's Tea.  Don't you always think of Roses when you think of Valentine's Day.

I love my pretty Rose teacups, and what better way to use them but to share them with you!

Jocelyn, your china is just gorgeous! I love the roses! I was happy to see that quote from LM Montgomery in your post. I almost used it myself this week. Thank you for sharing your beautiful tea setting and helping me celebrate my tea party anniversary. It's wonderful to have you.

Blessings,
Sandi
