Toast and Tea

Hello Lovely Teacup Friends

Welcome to

"Toast and Tea!"

  Do you know how much I love pink roses and greenery?  (Pink tulips too)!

Well... two weeks ago newly retired hubby and I stopped at Goodwill and I found some new treasures.

Six pretty teacups.  They were $3.99 each.

Two of the six had a different shape but I think that makes the set more interesting.

They are stamped Duchess Fine Bone China
Made in England.

The Arthur Wood teapot was in the showcase and had  a similar pattern.  It was $12.99.

So a teapot and six teacups for $37.00.

Sweet sis gifted this dear Royal Albert cream and sugar set to me. It is called "Bridesmaid Roses."

Don't you love toast and tea?

With a little strawberry jam?

My dear friend, Kelly gave me with the gorgeous pink tulips when I became a grandmother last week.  

Tulips make me so eager for spring.  

Thank you for visiting today for

"Toast and Tea."

Happy Tea Day!

  1. Karen:
    I am amazed at the bargains you find at your Goodwill. Here, they overprice anything like this and put it in a special case. I love "Roses and Ivy" as it was one of the first patterns I carried many years ago and it will always be a favorite of many! Your table looks delightful and everything blends together so well! Lovely!

  2. Hi Karen: I love your home. Each time I visit I see something I had not seen before. I love all your thrift store finds. They are always the best. Hope you are doing well. Hugs, Martha

  3. What a beautiful tea set and amazing prices! I love shopping at Goodwill and other thrift shops, you can find so many wonderful things there.

  4. Your china is lovely, Karen. You certainly do find some good bargains. I really like your RA Bridesmaid Roses pattern. Gorgeous posting and thanks for sharing it with us and joining me for tea.


  5. You find the best treasures, Karen. I don't have much luck when I visit Goodwill, I'm sorry to say. Your teacups,along with the lovely teapot are so pretty in pink. Yes, I love tea and toast! I have some every morning, along with my egg.

  6. What lucky finds at GW. I seldom get to lucky there. Tea and Toast will always remind me of mother in law. It was a great afternoon pick me up for her.

  7. Wow Karen what great finds from Goodwill. Love your sweet tulips from your friend. Congrats on your new grandbaby.

  8. Happy Tea Day, Karen! The lovely teawares that you scored at the Goodwill look like they're in mint condition!

  9. Very pretty china and such a good buy! Tea pots like that are hard to find for such a cheap price! That was a really good buy! And I prefer English china myself. That was my breakfast this morning -- toast and tea!

  10. The cream and sugar set from your sister is sweet and your thrift finds are awesome. I have been meaning to do a tea and toast post myself, this combination is a my go-to when ill, don't feel like having a heavy supper or just the thing for my afternoon tea.

  11. What a lovely find...and they all go so beautifully together! Love your cream and sugar. What a sweet sister! And what lovely tulips! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
