A Burgandy Tea




Welcome Sweet Tea Lovers,

Today I would like to share some mis-matched burgandy toned china pretties.



The flowered teacup is Tuscan "Provence".


The gold trimmed flowery patterned tea plates are Royal Albert's Canterbury.       




The cream and sugar are Royal Albert's 
"Lady Hamilton".



The larger teapot is Empire "York" Made in England. 




The smaller teapot and muffin tray are both Foley "Broadway". 


Although each pattern is a little different they still seem to blend together just as Transferware does. 





Thank you for stopping by today!

Have a Wonderful Weekend Friends!

Karen

A February Tea Time




Hello Sweet Tea Time Friends!

The snow is turning to rain and it's starting to feel like February weather once again.


This is where hubby and I relax in the evenings.


I thought that you may like to relax with me today and enjoy a February tea time.



This is the teacup and luncheon plate that completed my Royal Albert Teacup of the Month collection. 



 The sweet violet coloured pattern blends  with my family room tones of mauve and cream.





The Ellgreave violet teapot was once my dear mother's.



Thank you so much for your visit today!




Wishing you a Wonderful Weekend.
Karen

Snow and Renovations





Hello  Lovely Teacup Friends!

Mr. Cottage and I are busy at the cottage ripping up the old flooring (30 years old) and making way for new updates (floors, doors, moulding - no longer brown - Yay!)  Renovations are exhausting especially when you are a collector and everything needs to be packed carefully away.  


We hoped to put some furniture outside but when we awakened this morning there was a new blanket of snow.


We borrowed my son's truck to take the old carpet to the dump.  Hopefully we will make it there if the roads aren't too bad. 


Are you anxious for spring too?



The china cabinet is empty. Pretties packed in boxes. 


Beds are apart. Pictures and mirrors are off the wall and Furniture/lamps are everywhere! 



Please tell me the construction and Mess, Mess, Mess will be worth it.


Since I'm hubby's right hand man...finding time to blog may be a challenge so I apologize that I may not be able to visit you promptly. I am a little overwhelmed.



Hope your first week of February is great!

See you next time.
Karen

Birthday Gifts


Hello My Tea Friends!

Another birthday has come and gone for me but I wanted to share my favourite gifts.


The beautiful hot pink and white long stemmed roses were from my dear friend Kelly.
I just love them!



The Royal Albert Seniorita teacup and candy dish were from my Sweet Sis!
Thank you Dianne!


I have been searching for one for years and do you believe it?  Sweet Sis found it at a garage sale.


I once saw the matching teapot for $60 at a thrift store and regretfully passed it by. 



It looks just like black lace, doesn't it?


I also bought myself a couple of Birthday/Christmas gifts.  Have you ever done this too?


I had been looking at this lovely Arthur Wood teapot for some time and finally decided to Make an Offer and won it at $12!


My mother used to have one something like it and  so it is very special to me.  Love it's gold gilt!


I had also been looking at this pretty deep, rich pink tea set for over a year and finally had a weak moment when it also became.... Make an Offer.  (Sorry I can't tell you how much - hubby may see).  Lol. I know I'm a bad girl!
  

It is the large size Sadler Cube teapot.

But... I am still on the search for a lighter pink one too.
Then my collection will be complete. (I hope).



Thank you for stopping by today!

See you next time. 

Karen
