Tea Things

While on a shopping spree, I found this Staffordshire teapot at Home Goods a couple of years ago. 

It was the prettiest teapot that I had found in a long time. The large pink roses are so delicate. The Royal Albert cream and sugar set was purchased at an Antique mall while I was visiting my daughter when she worked in Chicago. And the mug was a gift from a dear friend. It is called "Rose of England".   I painted the plate that is standing behind the tea set.  I thought these pieces looked so pretty together.  Perfect for a spot of tea on a cold day.

Gorgeous teapot! Home Goods always has some great pieces but that was a winner. Love delicate pieces with pink roses.
