Vintage Rose China

"Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle ... a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light, a bud straining to unfurl. And the anticipation nurtures our dream."
~Barbara Winkler

Hello everyone,
I hope you had a nice weekend. It has been rainy and cold here.
Well not as cold as some places but I just can't seem to get warm.
I'm ready for spring now and since my azaleas won't be blooming
until next month, I found one of the photos of my pink
ones and made a mosaic for Mosaic Monday.

All of the china in this post I think you
have seen before in previous posts.

Thank you for stopping by.~Clara

The pretty touches of pink in each photo is nice for Spring! It's been warm here in Florida this's 75 right now! I always love seeing your beautiful china tea cups! They are so elegant!

Dear Clara,
Oh, such pretty, pretty china. I love all of your pictures. Especially love the chintz~darling little salt n pepper too.
Happy day to you, Ruthie from Lady B's Time for Tea

Looking at all your pastel spring colours makes me think I should pack away my snowflake dishes and bring out the butterfly china.
I like the two teacups in your mosaic and the white bunny and scottie dog.

Very pretty china patterns. Valerie

Soft pink flowers are a perfect start to spring. If we can't have them outside, we'll enjoy them inside - as on your china. Very pretty.

Seems like the nearer to springtime, the more we love our pinks! You have so many lovely tea treasures, a joy to see! Hope spring comes soon for you!

It's so nice to see roses on china tea cups before it's warm enough for real ones to bloom!

Linda @ Friendship Tea said...

Beautiful post! After looking at your beautiful china, I am definitely ready for spring!

Terri said...

Hello Clara,
I am like you lately, I can't get warm either. It is like being cold from the inside! lol!
Hopefully after a day of tea time we will be a little warmer, at least warmed by the kind friendship!
Your post is beautiful! I adore your pink and green vignettes of your china! I love pink and green! Your tea cups are so beautiful!

Your calico border here which reminds me of a dress I had once many years ago. Your teacups and chintz pieces are lovely and thank you for linking to Friends Sharing Tea!

Your china pieces are gorgeous! I'm definitely craving spring after viewing all the beautiful roses on your china pieces and reading that Barbara Winkler quote at the beginning. Happy Tuesday! ~Michelle
