Just Two Teacups!


Hello Tea Friends!

It's been a busy week but I wanted to share
Just Two Teacups!


 I have had the one on the left for about 3 years and chose it because it matched the cottage tones.


I was thrilled yesterday when I went into a little shop in Bellingham and found it's almost twin for $2.00. 



The shape and rich colour of the teacups are identical and the only difference is the gold patterns. 



Both are Royal Grafton Fine Bone China
Made in England.


Don't you love finding treasures?



Thank you for stopping by today!


See you next time!

Castles for Tea Time


Hello Dear Tea Time Friends!

Do you love Castles too?

I have been gradually finding some Johnson Brother's Old Britain Castle and Alfred Meakin Medieval Castles pieces.


Every one features a different castle.


The teapot is Johnson Brother's Donnington Castle.



The creamer is Goodrich Castle.    



The lidless sugar bowl is Buderham Castle.



The teacup is  Caernarvon Castle.


The saucer is Alfred Meakin's Rhuddlan Castle. (When examining the name I just found out they are not a matching set. Lol.)


I keep all of my transferware china at the cottage.


I love the detail on all of the handles.


I have found one piece at a time while thrifting and treasure them all.  Thankfully they do blend together nicely.  


The tea plates are Mason's Vista. 


Thank you for stopping by today!

See you next time!

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year Dear Tea Friends!



Do you believe it? Another year is nearly behind us.

GREETINGS on Scroll Silver Horseshoe Pink Roses Vintage 1913 New Year Postcard:

I  wanted to share with you
my Royal Albert's Flower of the Month Series  teacup collection that I finally completed this year.















I really don't know which is my favourite because I treasure them all and display one every month on my kitchen windowsill.  


I have a few of the matching luncheon plates.  Maybe this will be my 2017 treasure hunting goal.   













Good-bye to December for another year!

See you in January Sweet Friends!


Wishing you and Your Family 

A Safe and Healthy 2017!
