Tea Cup Tuesday-Restful

 

Hello Every One!
Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!

For today, Please join me for a restful tea....
I have set my tray up with cream and sugar,
Pot full of Assam tea,
and 
one of the first new tea cups I ever bought for myself.
I usually bring home vintage cups,
But This one with it's bold pansies talked me into it.

Here first is the chosen tea pot for this evenings tea....


I fell in love with this little tea pots purple thistles!


The manufacturer is Wade, and English company.


This cute cream and sugar are lovely in violets too, 
They were a lucky find at a local shop.




Queen Anne is the manufacturer, another fine company from England.

And for my tea cup....


This lovely vibrant and deeply colored cup...
It reminds me of a beautiful painting!



She sits tall on a prim pedestal, and has fluted sides.




Her handle is simple and gilded with a little gold.
I love this very happy cup!


I still have some roses surviving the mid 30's night temperature...
and some hearty pansies.

If we have a mild winter, they may survive the season.
One of the benefits of the milder southern winters.

My tea tonight is reminding me of them.


This pretty cup is made by Duchess china co. which is also a fine company for their quality china and beautiful designs. As I purchased her new in the late 90s, I am sure she is no more than a dozen years old. 
Just think, 
Some day she will belong to one of my great granddaughters...
and then she will be a true antique!

Thank you for joining me and Martha for Tea Cup Tuesday, 

We love having you!

May you enjoy a moment of rest
with a warm cup of tea in your hand.

Hugs,
Terri

Hello Terri,
Your teacup is just so pretty and you are right, it is like a lovely painting! The pansies are very lush. The teapot is sweet too with its thistles and the cream and sugar are pretty as well. A beautiful post from a beautiful lady. Thank you for your visit, my friend, and have a delightful week.

Blessings,

I love that teapot. It definitely makes me smile. And the tea cup is elegant! I like the thistle design on tea things. And lavender and purple are among my favorite colors. Probably why I named my antique shop Lavender and Old Lace.
Great post today!

A wonderfully relaxing blog with beautiful porcelain. The teapot is so stylish with its purple thistles! I would like to have a similar one. Violets are always cute. Your sugar bowl and cream jug is cute. Teacup is stunning. Just as you write reminds me of a painting. I wish you a nice day! Zinnia

Kathryn Ross said...

Your thistles, violets, and pansies have me thinking spring on this snowy day in my neighborhood! I daresay, a little spring is what I'd like to see to accommodate all the deep purples in my daughter's upcoming wedding next week! Hope these storms abate in time . . .
Joy!
Kathy
