Afternoon Tea with me!







Today at the farmhouse I have decided to set a small table for afternoon tea! I was lucky enough to find a set of 6 of these cups and saucers (they also have a plate to match which I should have included!!) wrapped in newspaper in a box in an old house we have on the farm. They are in perfect condition and sit at the top of my shabby dresser which is on my header. I just love the gorgeous roses on them.







The teapot and milk jug I purchased from Myer just because I loved the colouring of the flowers. The sugar bowl is from my collection of Royal Albert Country Roses dinnerware - I just adore this china - my kids think I am crazy that I get so much enjoyment from buying beautiful china - they just don't get it!!




This little jug I purchased from an antique store while on holidays one year. It is such a great size - I use it all the time to pop a few little flowers in - sometimes (often!) my garden is lacking a bit with not many blooms around so this jug is just right.




I could have poured some sugar into the bowl, don't you think?!  I love this little china handbag - I have three of these, pink, green and yellow. I bought them quite a few years ago. They are actually Christmas decorations - imagine a tree just covered with little handbags!!! Too die for!!


Come and join me for a cuppa...

Hi Suzy, I'd love to join you for a cuppa! Your tea cup is sooo pretty and to have a set of 6, you lucky girl! I told my kids I'd like to have a pretty tea cup for Christmas. You just can't have enough tea cups!

I love the color on the inside. I had some cups that had a madris type effect on the inside, so cool!
