Is it Really SPRING??

 The calendar says today is the first day of Spring.... however we are forecast to get snow so will have to be patient a bit longer.  We have been lucky here this year, up to now most of the big nor'easters have missed us.  But last year at this time we had a HUGE snowstorm which dropped more than two feet of snow in one day.................  hope that was just a one time thing.  we shall just have to wait and see I suppose...........    So on to happier things and some tea!

One of my collecting "weaknesses" has always been cottages......  I love them and have quite a few.  Maybe I will feature them all here someday.  BUT for today's Tea Cup Tuesday post I am just going to feature a Cottage theme.

I made my usual favorite, Earl Gray, and  got 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 features a pretty little thatched roof cottage.

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

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.

  Hope you will visit them too.
