Tea Pot and Tea Things Tuesday, Teacup Tuesday

Tea Time Tuesday, Tea Pot And Tea Things Tuesday, Tuesday Tea For Two are posts I look forward to...not only do I LOVE anything tea related, but I get to see the wonderful things others have to share. My idea of a wonderful blog party!!!

I wanted to share green this week, but it was a bit difficult. But I found items that do have green elements and green trim.  As some of you have figured out...I am a Shelley China lover. So...

Here is a Shelley China teacup in the Hulme's Rose pattern with green trim in the Ludlow shape. The lobed shape is so feminine and I love the floral bouquet pattern. Shelley is such delicate bone china. I love the curl on the top of the handle. For more info about the teacups at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.

Spring is really a state of mind. A renaissance of the sap of life in your veins...a looking forward to warmth and color after the more monochromatic winter. We took a walk this afternoon...rain is forecast for the rest of the week on and off. But then, it is the Pacific Northwest!

For my teapot...here is a Wedgwood teapot with matching cream and sugar from Antiques And Teacups. The shape is called Edme, it's made in Queen's Ware or creamware and is a pretty botanical I haven't found the name for yet. And...it has green trim! For more info, click on the photos.
