Every limpid brook is singing Of the lure of April days~ Lucy Maud Montgomery - Spring Song
Hello friends~ A warm welcome awaits you here at Rose Chintz Cottage as we partake of another Tea Time Tuesday.
It's the first week of April! Can you believe it; we got more snow dumped on us over the weekend! Surely this is the last of it. I haven't seen a robin yet so I think Spring must be playing a trick on us. Oh, how I long to hear and see the song birds; especially the finches!
For now, I will enjoy this sweet little birdie on my coffee table. He is joined by a small bouquet of white carnations which are still going strong since last week. I think they look lovely in the cranberry basket, don't you!
I thought I would do something a little different for Tea Time this week. I am joining Sheila @ Note Songs for her Heart of the Home Party. She had asked us to share our favourite cupboard. Well, since mine is my china cabinet I thought I would share that with you today for Tea Time Tuesday. So, please come in and make yourself at home.
I bought the crystal knobs...
As you can see, I have all of my Rose Chintz in here as well as a few pieces of other china patterns.
The top shelf houses my Johnson Brothers Rose Chintz platters, teapot, double egg cups, jug, gravy boat, as well as some demitasses.
I am also sharing a favourite little green cabinet. I know some of you have seen this before but have you ever wondered what I kept inside it?
In this cabinet there are the following patterns: a green handpainted teacup which I won in a Giveaway from Amy at Vintage Porcelain Art, Rose Bud made by Maxwell and Williams, Rose Chintz by Gracie China, Lavender Rose by Royal Albert, Cream Lace, Pierced Lace, and Garden Whispers all made by Skye McGhie. There is a pattern called Butterfly Gardens by Maxwell and Williams and a three-footed teacup which I won in a Giveaway from Martha at Martha's Favorites. Finally there is a Valentine teacup made by Gracie China as well as a number of different china plates, creamers and trays.
The mere chink of cups and saucers tunes the mind to happy repose. ~ George Gissing
All the rest of my teacups, teapots, and other china patterns are stored in a different area. I have most of my teapots displayed above my kitchen cabinets.
Would you care for another cup of tea before you go?
It has been a real pleasure having you stop by!
I think I will enjoy another cup of tea as I peruse an issue of Victoria. Do something lovely for yourself today. Better yet, do something lovely for someone else!
The week of April 18th I am hosting my Easter Tea Party so please do join me again. Would love to have you! Enjoy your day everyone!
Happiness is sharing tea with a friend.
