Happy Easter

 (I found this graphic at the Graphics Fairy website and changed the wording to suit what I needed.)

Happy Easter!  Here are three little cards I just found out in my shop.  Nothing fancy but they sent out the message back in the day....  (1908-1909)  

 I really love this first one which included the Pansys.

Spring surely will be along soon.  My yard is filling up with Robins....  I hope they know something. We are still getting little bits of snow... nothing really hanging around but snow non the less.
And since Easter is this coming weekend we are praying for some REAL springlike weather.

Yesterday we FINALLY managed to go to a couple of flea markets.  Pretty much a waste of time.  Didn't find anything.  I was hoping to see some tea cups or tea pots.... NOTHING.  Good thing I already have a lot. 
But back to the Tea Party............................................

Since the calendar says SPRING even if the weather doesn't I thought I would share one of my favorite spring time cups.   It is NATURALLY a Royal Albert Set.  I don't know the name of the pattern but I think it really says spring with it's dainty yellow blossoms.

I always put these place mats on my table starting the first day of spring.  Have to bring the cheerfulness in somehow...........

     And here is the mark............

                                         I love this tea pot trivet and use it often, sometimes even just for holding hot dishes on my table.

I am hopeful we will get down to our favorite flea market this coming week.  IF so I will have a report on it next week, and hope to find more teacups and tea things.

   Join me for a cup of tea today and then visit the other tea parties that are taking place today. 
            Here are the tea parties I will be joining this week.  Hope you will visit them too.

Remember, these may not be available every week so check to be sure.
