Wild Rose Tea

I may have shared this tea set before, but I think it is just too beautiful not to share again.


I always loved Wild Roses, and my Mother in Love painted them on china.


The cup and lunch plates were a gift from my hubby's sister.


But the Tea Service was painted for me by my MIL.  I always think of her whenever I use it.
