More Chintz for Tea Time

Welcome Sweet Tea Lovers to

"More Chintz for Tea Time!"

I recently found this dainty little Ridgeway Chintz teapot and matching tray - Made in England.

It seems to change colour depending on the position of sunlight.

My hairdresser and also my dear friend Jan gifted me with these two chintz teacups that were once her great aunt's.

My favourite colours of pink and blue.

Tea Time each week is such a perfect time to enjoy my pretties and have a cup of tea, of course.

I hope that you can take time and relax with a cup of tea today too!

Thank you for stopping by!
See you next week!

  17. OMG, I need to get myself a cup of tea quickly.... I collect that Ridgway pattern and have duplicate pieces of most dinner/tea ware items but have never been able to find the matching teapot. Now I know what it looks like, at least. Thankyou for sharing.
