I enjoy participating in the tea parties on Tuesdays here in blog land. It's been a few weeks since I have done so and I also wanted to share the lovely gift I received in February after winning a giveaway from the lady of the house at Pondside.
The lovely "Mrs. Pondside" sent me a sweet book, "Sarah's Tea Time", which is full of delicious recipes to make tea time a big hit with your guests. She also included some Murchie's Diamond Jubilee tea, some pretty napkins and a sweet Valentine treat of a dark chocolate heart. Thank you so much!
We woke up this morning to a winter wonderland.
The landscape is covered with a coating of fresh white snow.
Winter isn't finished here in the Maritimes just yet, but, it is spring inside my home.
I tied in the aqua and orange colours in the napkins with my Foley china cups and the coral carnations in the white jug.
The Foley china cups were my aunt's. They were produced by
E. Brain and Company, Foley China Works, Fenton, England (1885) between 1930-36. I found a couple for sale on E Bay for about $29.00 US each.
Here are the markings on the teacup.
The number is V2703.
They are among my favourite teacups as I love the low bowl and the colours of the flowers. The inside of the rims, the edge of the saucers and the base of the cups are hand painted with blue scalloping and the handles have blue marks. The edge of the saucers and cups are also scalloped.
Would you like a cup of tea and a cookie?
I would like to thank our lovely hostesses this week for taking the time to set up these blog tea parties.
