It's Tea Time

I love tea things. Tea reminds me of charm and elegance. It reminds me of a different time and era, when taking time for tea was a daily ritual. A time to sit and be refreshed.

I fell in love with this teacup the moment I saw it.

I am not really sure what kind of flower this is, but it made me think of Mountain Laurel. It's marked Victoria, Bone China, England. I thought it was such a nice addition to my teacup collection.

I noticed that I had a sugar bowl and creamer that had similar flowers.

I found this lovely trio in the Windy City when I visited my daughter several years ago. It was found in an antique mall in Oak Brook. The markings on the bottom say - Old Royal Bone China - England. I love the little matching set and had to bring it home with me.

Even though it is not an exact match, I think it goes very nicely with the tea cup.

Please be sure to stop and visit Tea Parties going on today -

Hello Jocelyn
The teacup and cream and sugar do go well together and I feel the mixing and matching of china makes an interesting tea table.
