Valentine's Day is almost upon us again and although I don't go 'all out' for this day I did buy a couple of things at Michael's to decorate with. I got this pretty sparkly heart garland there the other day. There was one left and I kept looking at it and wandered around then came back to it and bought it. :)
I have a pink and white theme going on in the china hutch with lots of roses on china and a few vintage Valentines. The sweet heart shaped dish with the blue birds is by Royal Copely.
While the sun was shining on the Monday afternoon I decided to do a teatime post for Valentine's Day. I still have some shortcake cookies in the freezer so they matched the rose theme perfectly. I have 3 beautiful rose teacups out for our tea today.
This pretty teacup is 'Centennial Rose' by Royal Albert. I don't know the history behind this cup and it's special name. I always thought it was to do with our Canadian Centenary in 1967. Perhaps Ruth of Antiques and Teacups may know.
This teacup is also by Royal Albert and is from the Random Harvest Series. It is called 'Somerset'.
I believe this is my new favourite teacup. It's another by Royal Albert called 'American Beauty'. There is just something about these beautiful pink roses and the gold edging that I love.
Which one is your favourite?
I put this one on a pedestal.
I found the red berry heart at Michael's too. The tea towel is from Dollarama and the soft pink tea light holder I bought at Savour Decor, my friend's gift shop.
I have a few other Valentine things I'll show you later in the week.
It's been pretty nice here for a whole week. No snow!! But it's been very cold instead.
Today I'm linking with Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday
and Ruth for Tuesday Cuppa Tea.
Maybe you'd like to visit these two ladies and see their beautiful tea parties. You are welcome to join me and the others celebrating tea time this week.
Have a blessed week.
