Green Tea Lavender


If I could take your Troubles,

I would toss them in the Sea.

But since I can't, I'm sending you,

My favorite cup of tea.

~unknown~


Hello Everyone. I am having tea today in a green tea and lavender colorway. Picking the colors up from my new book, The Secret Garden and The Mermaid's Chair by Sue Monk Kid. (which has an iridescent  green and purple jacket.) I found T.S.G. at the second hand store and without the jacket, it is a pretty violet color.


Teapot- Crown Dorset with a crown (Staffordshire England)


This Jane Austen's Little Instruction Book was a gift from my dear friend Sue.





Pretty plate but no mark.








Teacup Sphinx Exclusive Japan


When I found the cup it didn't have a saucer but later on I found this pink embossed saucer. Mark- french China T and V Limoges.(It matches the cup perfectly)


windmill cookies


A pretty flower seed packet...purple and green of coarse and silk lavender.in a little terra cotta pot.


rose spoon--Vergoldet- Germany-vintage linen napkin


salt and pepper Aynsley Fine Bone China


I do hope you enjoyed your visit. Have a great week.

Hi Clara,
Your lavender and green tea is lovely. The seed packet is very pretty too. I lOVE your teapot! The shape and the colour of it makes for a very sweet pot! Cute teacup too and you're right, the saucer looks like it belongs with the cup. Thank you for joining me for tea and have a delightful week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh everything looks beautiful! The tea cup looks so pretty, and the plate looks fine with it.
I do love to read as well, and I have the Jane Austen book, and have read the other two (which I loved).
The tea pot is really pretty too! It all works together so well.
