A New Baby Blue Tea Set

Hello Dear Tea Friends!

I was very excited when driving down to the cottage today because a new tea set was waiting there for me.

To add to my excitement, the sun started to shine just as we pulled onto the beach drive.  I could even have had a Tea in the Garden today.

I had ordered this Sadler cube Tea Set online and even though the dimensions were given I still had hope that maybe it was bigger than it was described.

When I first got married 34 years ago everything in my kitchen then was baby blue.  Even my counter tops and cabinet knobs were this baby blue and I still favour this pretty colour!

It is not the large cube size that I had hoped for but I love it anyway!

(The wild orange flowers are blooming in the cottage garden).

I have displayed it today with some demitasse teacups to make it look larger than it is.

The first wee demitasse is unmarked.

The second one  is marked Bavaria.

I found both of these three years ago here at our little gated community Garage Sale for a dollar each.

What treasure are you searching for? 

Have a Wonderful Fall Weekend!  

See you next time!

  2. Oh, Karen, your baby blue tea set is really pretty! You know I had baby blue in my first home. I kept the blue the whole time my guys were growing up although the hue of blue had deepened over the years. I still love baby blue and I'm always drawn to it. However after decorating with blue for so long, now I'm enjoying more pink and red in our home. I guess I'm entitled after indulging all the men in my life for so many years. Enjoy your new tea set and have a beautiful weekend, my friend.


  3. Dear Karen:
    Things are looking very blue today at the cottage! I love your new set. I am thrilled that you shared it and that it arrived safely. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Hi Karen, I love your beautiful cube tea set! It is just precious! I think the smaller size is so unique. I don't see many vintage teapots that size! Your table looks so lovely with the pretty bouquet and beautiful teacups!
    Blessings to you!

  5. Your new teaset is just lovely, Karen, and it looks so pretty with your demitasse teacups. It's always fun to have a package waiting. Enjoy your new set!

  6. It is just lovely Karen... i love most colors of blue.. Have a lovely weekend with love Janice

  7. How lovely - that hue of blue is absolutely gorgeous.

  8. Karen, I'm so glad you found a tea pot you love and brings back special memories.
    I'm looking for a blush pink teacup to go with the pink Sadler teapot which my aunt gave me.
