Sadler Swirls for Tea Time



Hello My Dear Tea Friends!

Sorry I missed last week's tea time. 


 It's such a beautiful September day at the cottage  that I can't believe Autumn is just around the corner.


Did you know that I am a copy cat?



My sis had found both of these Vintage Sadler Swirl teapots years ago  and I loved them so much that I had to copy her and search on e-bay to get my own pair. 
(Sorry Sweet Sis)






Have you ever been a copy cat?

Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a Wonderful Week!
Karen

An Indoor Tea Time


Happy September Lovely Tea Friends!


I'm grateful the sun is shining but I have set up our tea time indoors for a change. 

(Sometimes I am worried I may drop my pretties when setting up my outdoor tea times).


I have always been hoping to find a Spode tea set on a thrifting expedition.  I am gradually increasing my collection.

This pattern is Spode's Jewel Copeland Billingsley Rose. 💗


I found the saucer when thrifting sometime ago and then I ordered the matching teacup.  Years later I found a tea plate at Value Village and then I ordered a reasonably priced demitasse from e-bay.


I love it's roses on the inner cup and handle and the elegant raised embossed pattern.





The creamer is Rosalie Cheery Chintz Made in Germany.


I was overjoyed to find the Billingsley Rose teapot for $35.00!






The pink lady is Made in England and I found her at a thrift store in White Rock for $1.50.  Do you know if it's a Sadler?  The large Billingsley Rose bowl was just 25 cents at Anacortes Shipwrecked Days! 
 💛💝



Thank you for your visit today! 

I do hope that you find treasures when thrifting too!

Mint Green For Tea Time




Hello My Tea Friends!

The smokey skies have finally cleared and the rain has stopped for now so I have set up a Mint Green Tea in the Garden.




The mint green and gold thistle tea set is Stanley Made in England.





The teapot is a Sadler.



I do hope that you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer.




Thank you for stopping by today.


See you next time!

Karen

Roses for Tea Time


Happy Tea Time Friends!


It's a little hazy and smokey outdoors today from the local fires.


The final batch of summer roses are in full bloom.



The china pattern today is Royal Albert's Moss Rose.  Rosina also makes a similar Moss Rose pattern.


The Moss Rose teacups today are different in shape.


Which shape do you prefer?

Can you teacup professionals tell me if this is the Malvern or Avon Shape? I'm thinking Malvern but I'm not sure.


Or do you prefer the Montrose Shape?

I recently passed by two Moss Rose Hampton shaped teacups and now regret it. 




Thank you for stopping by.


I hope that you can take time to smell the roses today and of course enjoy a cup of tea.



See you next time!
Karen
