Getting out the Green

  1. Hello My Tea Friends
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner so I am getting out the green-ish china pieces.

The shamrock teacup is an Aynsley 
Made in England. 

There are even some shamrocks on the inner cup.

The little green sweet treats are from Indonesia where my beautiful daughter-in-law once lived.

This ivy teacup is a Colclough.

The little tea plates have a shamrock border.

My little shamrock plant has some white spring blossoms. How I love all budding plants!

The deep green teacup is also an Aynsley...

(a treasured gift from my aunt when I graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1978).

Are you getting out your green too?

Thank you for visiting!

See you next week!

  1. Dear Karen:
    You have set the perfect Irish table. I loved each teacup but when I saw those 2 plates, I was spellbound. Shamrocks and roses - amazing! Thank you so much for sharing all your pretty pieces! How totally fun this was!

  2. This is one of the most romantic tea set i've ever seen. The tea cups are so pretty and the plates are gorgeous. You always show us romantic treasures.

  3. Karen, your table is very pretty all set in one of my favourite colours, green! Love the green teapot. Is that a Sadler? Love the Aynsley teacups and your plates rimmed with shamrocks are so perfect for the setting. This is so delightful and fun. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful week, my friend.


  4. Your Irish table setting is beautiful. The taller teapot caught my eye. It look like the pattern of my Mom's dishes that she had a long time ago.

  5. I'm green envy over your pretty Aynsley teacups! The chocolate brownies (?) also caught my eye. Yum!

  6. Gorgeous Karen! Of course I love the teacups and your spring green setting is perfect! Good grief the brownies are decadent! I love to see your treasures too! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
