A Rose is A Rose is A Rose.....

...t'is my faith that every flower enjoys the air it breathes. ~ William Wordsworth

Hello my lovely friends. I hope your week is going well. 

We have been painting the office so this will be a quick post as I don't always have access to my computer. I have also been busy baking for my company which will be arriving in a couple of weeks.

A pretty bouquet I picked up at the grocery store because my roses aren't doing well this year. I think it's because of the cold wet weather we seem to be having most of the time. 

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had found some new teacups. I am sharing another one today.

It's no secret that I adore roses and when I saw this beautiful teacup, it just won my heart, so home it came with me.

The front with a full blown rose.

The back with a tiny rose bud.

Inside and a glimpse of the saucer.

Isn't she a beauty? She is a footed teacup with a gentle scalloping around the rim of both the cup and saucer and the handle is very comfortable. 

She is another Aynsley made in England and I just love the gorgeous pink roses. I honestly couldn't resist her. The number on the bottom of the cup is 1365 but I couldn't find a name for her.

"After all, the only real roses are pink ones. They are the flowers of love and faith." ~ Anne Shirley of Anne of Green Gables

The topper is new which I found at The Anne of Green Gables Store. It is called Ivory Elegance and it is the perfect size for my coffee table. 

I am enjoying English Breakfast tea and a triple decker tea sandwich made with devilled ham and cream cheese on white Tramezzini bread. The plate is Royal Albert Lavender Rose.

Have you treated yourself to something new lately?

Enjoy your cuppa tea today and thank you for visiting. 

Hope you all have a delightful weekend.

There are always flowers for those who want to see them. ~ Henri Matisse
