An Old English Rose Tea

Welcome Teacup Lovers to 

 An Old English Rose Tea Time

Two Weeks ago Hubby and I went to the Shipwrecked Days in Anacortes.  There were tents of vintage items and collectibles.

I found these two pretty Shabby Chic pillows.

Pink Roses and Ruffles.....mmmmmm.

 The pink roses at the cottage garden give me such pleasure 

and the newly planted pink hydrangeas are adjusting to their new home.

The teacup that I am sharing today is one of my treasured collection patterns. I had to have one of the teacups at the cottage but the rest are at the castle.

 It is  Royal Albert's "Old English Rose."  Made in England. 

This vintage Royal Albert Old English Rose Teacup has beautiful pink and red roses  accented with cottage green leaves.  

It is surrounded by deep gold gilt on the trim of the teacup  and saucer.

Thank you for joining me for

 "An Old English Rose Tea".

I hope you are enjoying these warm summer days too!

Have a wonderful week dear friends!
