A cottage tea party

This week I thought I would feature a couple of tea things that are decorated with cottages.  I have a collection of cottages including a number of David Winter cottages.  So since I love those it was natural to find and purchase some tea things featuring cottages.  So this week here are a couple.

I decided to make my usual favorite Earl Gray and get some pretty little cupcakes from the bakery.

This teacup and saucer are from Royal Albert.... always a favorite of mine.
I love the details of the cottages on this set.

And here is the mark.  There is no name included.

     The teapot is from Arthur Wood and Son and featured a pretty little thatched roof cottage.

 And here is the pretty little plate I chose to hold the cupcakes.  It is also Royal Albert and is called Minuet.   So delicate looking.

And finally today I wanted to show off the vintage tea cozy I bought quite a while ago because it had my initial on it.   Ok, so I probably would have bought it no matter the initial.  I really like it.

Thanks for joining me  today and I hope you will visit the other Tea Time blogs as well.

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

During the summer months some of these may be on vacation. But check to be sure.

Hope you will visit them too.
