A Snowdrop Tea Time

Welcome Teacup Lovers to

"A Snowdrop  Tea Time!"

Today I am sharing the January Royal Albert Flower of the Month series entitled "Snowdrops" (which you seen before.) 
It's name is so perfect for January.  

The teacup is very special to me because my sweet mother gave it to me for my birthday many years ago.  

I have gradually collected the teacup, luncheon plate and cake plate.

As I am taking my final pics for this post, the snow is just starting to cover the ground.  Snowflakes are so relaxing.

On my thrifting adventures I have managed to find two other Royal Albert Teacups of the month (October and December).  Now only 9 more to find. 
 Do you enjoy adding to your collections?


Hubby and I received two boxes of these rich, yummy  donut chocolates for Christmas.

I hope that you will enjoy it with your tea today.

Perhaps it's time to diet.

But it would be such a shame to waste such goodies!  Lol!

Do you still have some traces of Christmas sweets and decorations lingering too?

Thank you for joining me today Dear Friends  for

"A Snowdrop Tea Time!"

Wishing you the very best of everything in this exciting New Year!

See you next week!

  8. Happy New Year, Karen! I love your Snowdrop teacup and other pieces! So you are a January girl too, are you? I need to get me a Snowdrop teacup but they are hard to find around here. I have February, October, and December. No birthdays in February but it was gifted to me as a house warming gift by Hubby's aunt. The light green and white is so fresh and pretty! Makes a beautiful tea time setting. Thank you for sharing and joining me for Tea Time. Have a lovely week.


  9. The table is set so prettily. I do like the pretty snow flower design along with the soft green accents. The results are very elegant with the pretty centerpiece.

  10. Such a pretty pattern and it pairs nicely with the green depression glass.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Karen.

  11. Lovely set. I love the colors and designs.

  12. Your snowdrop tea is lovely, Karen, and how nice to find extra pieces to go with your teacup. I love your darling figurine, too. Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year!

  15. A beautiful set. You just can't beat Royal Albert.

  16. The snowdrop china is so pretty and so perfect for January. You make me want to have a snowdrop tea, too. There are Christmas sweets lingering around here, but I'm resisting and saving them for hubby's lunch.

  17. Beautiful green glass. The teacup is a beauty! I collect Royal Albert Provincial Flowers that my mother started me out with. I still have one or two to go.

  18. I was just wondering the other day what Royal Doulton's teacup for January looked like. It is very pretty, and perfect for this month. I now have two of the months, I agree, would be lovely to have each month. Your teapot from your mother is beautiful. The donuts look yummy, too!
    Have a good week, Karen!
