MY TEA TIME TUESDAY AND TEACUP & TEA THINGS TUESDAY FOR DECEMBER 1st.

Hi everyone,

Okay, here is my tea post for this week.  I tried to get it up yesterday and totally forget.  Here is the last of my tea things that I purchased at auction a few weeks ago.  The cup and the saucer are from the same designer. The plate is from a different designer.  However,  the patterns are so similar, they fit together nicely :)

THIS IS THE TEACUP, SAUCER AND PLATE THAT I PURCHASED AT THAT AUCTION A FEW WEEKS AGO.

HERE IS THE PLATE.  IT IS REALLY INTERESTING WITH THE BEAUTIFUL SCALLOPED DETAIL ALL THE WAY AROUND THE EDGE OF THE PLATE. NOTICE THE PRECIOUS LITTLE ROSEBUD IN THE CENTER OF THE PLATE.
THIS IS THE BACKSTAMP ON THE SCALLOPED ROSES PLATE.

NEXT, I PLACED THE SAUCER ON TOP OF THE PLATE. DO YOU NOTICE HOW WELL THE ROSES ON BOTH ITEMS FIT TOGETHER? IT IS REALLY AMAZING.

THIS IS THE BACKSTAMP ON THE SAUCER.

THIS IS THE FLORAL MOTIF ON ONE SIDE OF THE TEACUP. IT HAS A VERY SIMPLE GOLD DETAIL ON THE HANDLE.

THIS IS THE SMALLER FLORAL MOTIF ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TEACUP.

THIS IS THE BACKSTAMP ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TEACUP.


I really enjoyed sharing some more of my tea things with you.  Now the trick is to find a way to display them beautifull in my home. Right now, it's just random placement wherever there is space in my room :) :) :)

Oh,  Friday I'll be sharing some vintage finds that I found this week. You'll have to tune in Friday for that.  I've really committed to buying things at thrift shops and antique shops, when I can afford it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit. I LOVE visitors and comments :) :) That's the news from the ocean shores of California today. Love and hugs, Heather :)

Oh, beautiful, Heather, and you're right, it all mixes nicely together. Doesn't clash or look bad at all.

In my opinion, one can never go wrong with pink flowers!!!

Blessings,
Patti

I really like the scalloped edge plate--how feminine!! And, of course, pink is always wonderful!
I display my mom's teacups and saucers on a decorative metal tea rack we bought ages ago; you might be able to find one at a vintage, second hand store or auction. The extras I keep in my kitchen cabs and hutch.
Wishing you many blessings,
Aimee

That plate is a stunner--what a great find. And the cup and saucer too. It's amazing that they go together so well.

I'm giving away a teacup and saucer soon on my blog. Stop over and comment so you can be in the drawing. It will come with some Earl Grey tea, too!

Heather, your auction finds are fab! The tea cup and saucer just lovely with the beautiful pink roses. I love the shape too, visually it is very pleasing. The plate is gorgeous as well, and really does complement the cup.

I've hardly spent the time that I used to on the computer so I didn't even know that you moved! I hope that you all are enjoying life in Monterey. :) We visit there occasionally when we go to see my parents in the Bay Area. I believe the last time we went to the aquarium was back in 2007. My mom and I have stayed at a bed and breakfast outside of Monterey before and enjoyed all the quaint little shops.
Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Heather,
Oh WOW, it's dreamily gorgeous!!! You and your dad sound so happy to be in California and I was so surprised when you moved--I figured you were singing "California, Here I Come!" on the way!!!
