Tea cups and tea sets and BlueBirds

We continue to have MANY birds visit us at our bird bath and bird feeding stations.  This weekend we had a visit from some BlueBirds.  They seem to just come by in the fall when they are heading south, stopping in at our place for some sustenance for the trip.  I had a hard time getting a picture because they were so active and finally had to take it through a window.  But this proves we have blue birds here, even if for a short time.


A couple of weeks ago Michelle at The Nest at Finch Rest offered a copy of Victoria Magazine.  I was the "winner" of the drawing to receive the copy.   This past week the package arrived and what a treat.  Not only was the magazine enclosed the the pretty napkins tied up in ribbon and a tiny tea pot charm.  Thank you so much Michele!!!!!



This week I thought I would play catch up on some of the pretties I have found at flea markets lately. Some are from our New England trip, some are more recent but they show the variety of choices out there.
     These first pictures are from our favorite flea market, a couple of weeks ago.  Quite the variety I thought.  I have several of them myself.

And this group even included a "royalty" teacup.

And from the big flea market in New Brunswick I found these....................
This first set is lovely and if I remember right it was quite pricey.  But wouldn't it make a lovely tea setting. I can't remember the name of the company but no doubt one of our tea experts will know.


  

 

  This next grouping is a Royal Albert Pattern called Lavender Rose.   I have  couple of pieces in my shop and my cousin  Ella has a full set of it. It is beautiful.  I had taken a group of pictures of her set while I was visiting her but some how they got lost during my travels.

 

                          Hope you enjoyed some of the tea things I shared.

 

              I have joined with the following Tea Cup Tuesday Tea Parties.

                 These may not be available every week so check to be sure.

Hope you will visit them too.
