Pamela for Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday
This is a wonderful and large all white porcelain teapot I just listed at Antiques And Teacups that I fell in love with. I happened on an antique market in a small town last weekend and jumped on this cutie! The teapot is unmarked but is extremely well made. It's also quite large. I love the basket weave pattern.
I looked for a teacup to go along with the teapot, and found this antique cup and saucer by Simpson's, England in a pattern called Marlborough with a basket weave pattern and an ivy border. As it is finally getting to be the time for tea outside in the garden, I thought this would go perfectly with the teapot with a botanical tea cloth and green tea napkins with your scones and tea in a chaise longue by a fountain or koi pond listening to the breeze ruffled leaves and twittering birds. Ahhhh.....

A poem about May by William Wordsworth
While earth herself is adorning
This sweet May morning
And the children are culling
On every side
In a thousand valleys far and wide,
Fresh flowers; while the sun shines warm
And the Babe leaps up on it's mother's arm -
Then sing ye birds, sing, sing a joyous song
And let the young lambs bound as to the tabor's sound
We in thought will join your throng
Ye that pipe and ye that play
Ye that through your hearts today
Feel the gladness of the May
