A New Pink Tea Set


Happy Summer

Sweet Tea Friends!



I can't believe it's nearly the middle of July!


I tried so hard to post my blog on time this week but was called on to babysit my darling grandchildren.  How could I resist?


This is my "new to me" pink Sadler Swirl Tea Set. 
💜
It is the palest of pink with a beautiful gold trim.



The teacups today are both mismatched cups and saucers.


Last Friday we went to a dear friend's daughter's wedding in Vernon, B.C. where I found this orphan Royal Grafton tea cup. I matched it up with a Royal Grafton orphan saucer.



This orphan teacup is a coalport.



I love the shapely handle on this teacup.




Thank you for stopping by today!

I hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Happy July 4th!


Happy July 4th!

Isn't it fun to celebrate special occasions?


I used to love decorating my kindergarten classroom and now I enjoy spending my time decorating inside and outside.  


I found these patriotic pillows last week at Value Village.  They were $1.99. It was seniors day so I got them for 30% off that!  


The transferware teacups are Mason's Vista.






I do hope that you have a special day with your friends and family on July 4th!

Blessings,
Karen

Happy Canada Day!



Happy Canada Day!

It was a busy day so I must apologize for my post being late.


There were lots of festive tents at Castle Park set up behind my back fence to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st.


Before my family arrived I set up my Maple Leaf teapot for a quick tea time.


And a teacup dedicated to the Royal City of New Westminster, B.C.


Sweet Sis gave me this Canada plate this week.



Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you had a chance to celebrate too!

A New Blue Collection


Happy Summer 
Sweet Tea Friends!


You know how I love pink and Sadler cubes, well, I have developed a fondness for blue Sadler Swirl Teapots too!


Hubby and I found the one on the left in a little shop in  Arlington a few months ago.



It came with the matching cream and sugar.


Do you see it's beauty?


I recently ordered this iredescent swirl.


The powder blue teacups today are both Aynsley.






This one is precious to me because it was once my dear mother's.







The blue background cream and sugar are Elizabethan.






Are your roses in bloom?



Thank you for stopping by today!
Blessings!
Karen
