Pink Saturday, Pink Rose Bouquet cup and saucer, Book The Art Of Tea And Friendship

Happy Pink Saturday with How Sweet The Sound. I love the sharing that goes on...the beautiful, creative posts. So much fun!








This is a pretty pink rose bouquet teacup and saucer made by Spencer Stevenson, England in 1948-1951. I love the pretty bouquet pattern. Love the pink roses! To see more info about the cup and saucer at Antiques And Teacups click on the photos.


I have a lot of books related to taking tea and some of my favorites for their beauty are those by artist Sandry Lynam Clough. Here is a favorite one...The Art Of Tea And Friendship




The hard back book is filled with Sandy's lovely paintings and wonderful quotes pertaining to tea and friendship. I received the book in 2003 from a dear friend.




"Somehow, taking tea together encourages an atmosphere of intimacy when you slip off the timepiece of your mind and cast your fate to a delight of tasty tea, tiny foods and thoughtful conversation."
Gail Greco

"I'm sending you love and tea, 
To warm your winter's day.
Think of me as you pour your cup
And all the good things we would say.
If we could be together now
Instead of miles apart,
We'd sip our teas and memories,
The sweet warmth fills the heart."
Susan Young

  1. Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
    Thank you so much for your beautiful share of your tea cup and saucer today. I also enjoyed seeing the book, The Art of Tea and Friendship. I have not seen this before, and the painting you shared of Sandy's is lovely. I love browsing through these books, it gives you so many ideas for tea parties and for table settings.

    Have a beautiful Pink Saturday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
