Happiness is Teapots!

Hello Dear Tea Friends

I must apologize again for my absence from blogland.  

I have missed you all and hope that you are well.

My love for teapots contines to grow stronger and the latest addition is this large Mason's Vista.

When I received it this week in the mail I was surprised by it's size.  It will make a very big pot of tea!  

I had wanted one for so long to match the dinner plates and teacups that I have gradually collected.

Do you find happiness in teapots too?

Have a Wonderful Weekend Sweet Friends!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day Sweet Tea Friends!

Have you ever had breakfast in bed for Mother's Day?

(My 3 excited little children - with the help of hubby made it for me many years ago - such special memories).

The lilacs at the cottage smell heavenly!

The teacup is Hammersley Spode Victorian Violets.

The teapot is marked only Made in England. 

I hope that someone makes you breakfast in bed for Mother's Day!

Have a Wonderful Mother's Day!

Happy May!

Hello My Sweet Tea Friends!

I've missed you.

The renovations at the cottage are still in progress and it continues to be a busy time for me.

This rosy teapot today resembles the Sadler Cube but it is marked Windsor so I believe it is a newer version.

Hubby and I had some dear friends today for lunch at the cottage so I dashed out in the pouring rain and cut some deep purple lilacs that are just starting to bloom - flowers just brighten the house, don't they?

Unfortunately with this weather lately,  there will be no Teas in the Garden for me this week. 

A few pics of the renos.....

I took home one of my china cabinets and I am now short of storage so I decided to arrange some of my pretties in a basket.  It actually holds quite a few teacups and they are much easier to find and use.

I recently found some cane back chairs at Re-Store and I plan to paint  them white....more projects for a sunny summer day.  I can't wait!

Thank you for stopping by today.

I am anxious to visit you all soon!
