Happy New Year Dear Ladies!
Welcome to "A Shabby Chic Shelley Tea"!
After Christmas my hubby and I decided to do some treasure hunting at the Boxing Day Sales. We stopped at Habitat for Humanity in Ferndale.
This pretty chintz Shelley was marked $15.00. I didn't hesitate. I just loved the colours and Shelley teacups are so hard to find.
At the counter the teacup rang through at $7.50. I couldn't believe it! Half price! It really was my lucky day!
This pink floral cherry blossom-like chintz pattern has brown branches surrounded with shades of pink flowers with mint greenery and spots of yellow. It is trimmed with coral on the handle and pedestal base of the teacup and outer trim of the saucer. It looks yellow in the pics, doesn't it? I just found out that Bernideen also has the same special teacup!
I love it's embossed texture and unique shape.
It is called Cream Lace Skye McChie.
In the winter I like to bring some of my white wicker patio furniture inside to protect it from the weather and enjoy it in our pinkish guest room.
The pink and mint green floral quilt was once my dear mother-in-law's. Don't you love that colour combination?
Mr. Cottage gave me the pink carnations on Christmas Eve and after one week they are still thriving. (I must admit that I did hint a little about how nice flowers would be for Christmas). I find that carnations live much longer than other cut flowers.
