Some Pretty things I saw today..............

A lovely rose deciding to open out fully in the garden this morning.
It looks and smells lovely.





Also was cleaning (as I do now and again!) and came across my Mother's china.
It was given to her and my dad as a wedding present over 50 years ago.
The complete set is still intact and looks so pretty, 
far nicer than the big earthenware mugs we use today
although I suppose with these delicate cups you would need about 4 refills!

I am joining up with Rose Chintz Cottage  
Sweetology and also Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor for Tea Time Tuesday,  and also it is my first time joining up with them so hopefully I will do it right!

I  have seen lots of lovely china and tea realated lovelies there.

What a beautiful china set! I have a good friend of mine who only uses china cups (she buys the most beautiful ones from charity shops) They are gorgeous to use, but I'm a big tea drinker, so, yes, need a refill every few minutes!! How lovely that you have a full set X

Your mother's china is gorgeous and you are very fortunate to have it and the memories that go with it. I'm so glad you were able to join us this week for tea. Have a wonderful day!

Hello,
they do look truly beautiful. I love rose design on everything. What a lovely idea of your Father to gift china with red roses to his bride. Really romantic. Thank you for sharing.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi and welcome to Tea Time Tuesday! I'm sorry I'm so very late visiting you but I have been away and just got back. So, I'm trying to get caught up with my visits.
Your teacups and other pieces are beautiful and how lovely to have them. I'm sure they bring many lovely memories to mind. Thank you for sharing your pretties with us.

Blessings,
Sandi
