Pink for TeaCup Tuesday 2.26.13

Here we are at our final February 
TeaCup Tuesday ~

Posting a familiar fave I grew up with at my Nana's..
Royal Albert 'BLossom Time'
I probably should have saved this post as a
tribute, perhaps for MuM's Day,
to the loving woman who shared her china gifts
with a wee girl who would grow up to love them
because she did...

Ah well, those are fond memories whatever the day!

I particularly love how the squarish tea plate shape
sets off the cup and saucer..

and here's the lovely saucer on its own ~

I would love to brew up a  pot of luxury tea from Whittards Chelsea
to share with you !

Unless any of you are intending a surprise visit,
here's a Tea Party poem that will have to do for now! ..

~ from Miss Rose Sister Violet ~

If any of you take along your fave teas when you're travelling,
this would make tea a traveller's treat ~

Hoping your Tuesday is Tea-riffic !

Joining all the blogging Tea Cup Luvers at

See you for Tea Time next in March... =)

Beautiful post! I really love Blossom Time. It is such a gorgeous pattern. I too, think the square plates are fab. The scene is so lovely. I can't imagine an entire table set with these beauties.

Michelle said...

Loved your site and motto. Hopping here from Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. Serving tea to my besties by selecting their favorite tea cup from my collection is one of my favorite things to do. Can't wait to see more of you. What a blessing.

What a beautiful tea cup set. My godmother was from England and we had tea parties together several times a week when I was a young girl. Your posts remind me of her. I am hosting a blog link up and would love for you to come and join us. You can link up 3 different posts a week so come on over!

My aunt gave my daughter one place setting of Blossom Time many, many years ago. She still has it. After this long winter, how nice to see all the blossoms!

Unknown said...

How beautiful. Thank you for sharing such a precious memory. I remember drinking heavily sugared tea with my grandmother. How I wish I had some of her teacups.

Hazel said...

Very pretty! The Tea Party quote is perfect for me since I live alone, and I love having tea. I'll try that :)

Dropping by from the Thursday Favorite Things hop,

Oh, I'm so glad I stopped by here. I too love your tea cup, saucer and plate. I love the different shapes but also the way the road leaves off and picks up when the saucer sits on the plate. I'm not often taken with too many china patterns - but that took me! ;)
AND I loved the poem you shared. I did save it as an image for me to see on my desktop - if you prefer I didn't just let me know and I'll remove it.
Goodness, that was a nice cup of tea! Thank you!
Happy Pink Saturday and Homemaking Link-Up. I'm posting with both. On PS I'm link #78 and on HLU I'm link #47 - my ID on this comment will take you to another of my blogs. I'm going to have to figure out how to stop or fix that somehow.
Thanks, Jenn

I loved your post so much - I'm preparing a post for tomorrow that features your post - by way of a tiny tiny picture of your teacup. It's on my blog Just Put The Pan On The Table (it won't link here, but my main blog will and there is a link in the header menu for the blog). Thanks for sharing your post. I'm still dreaming about that china pattern! Jenn

I love this Blossom Time tea set. I think my aunt had some of this china and I always admired it. Very appropriate for springtime. Pamela

Beth said...

Blossom Time is a gorgeous pattern! So springy! Love the poem, too! (chuckle)
