Teacup Tuesday, Second Tuesday in March

Today I am continuing to show  my pansy collection here on Tea Cup Tuesday.

After you visit my post today be sure to check out  these other blogs

   ALSO: Rose Chintz Cottage

My Pansy teacup for today is this pretty one.  It is by Queen Anne, one of my favorite companies and is called, appropriately for this time of year.....   Spring Melody.
 I love the fact that there is a pansy inside the cup as well, to enjoy as you are drinking your tea.
 And the saucer is filled with more beautiful pansies.

In addtition to the cup and saucer I am sharing a few other items as well.
 Here is a beautiful pitcher and mug in front of a pansy plate I made.  I will explain a bit farther down this blog entry.  As you can see it is Royal Ironstone.  I imagine it is handpainted, maybe not by that company.  No one signed so can't be sure.
This pretty little mug was hand painted and made in Germany.  I always keep the little violet hankie tucked inside when not in use.
 And finally, the pansy plate.  I bought a clear glass plate, cut out pansies from some fancy napkins, glued them on the bottom and painted the entire bottom with gold paint.  This protects the decoupaged prints. I use it for a decorative accessory but you could use it to serve with as long as you wash it by hand, carefully.
 I hope you enjoyed this grouping.  Be sure to check back next week.  I have already taken the pictures.

I love pansies and yours are just lovely! I think pansies are a lot like daisies; very friendly flowers. Thanks for sharing and joining me for tea.
