Tea time with Fanny
Welcome to my looking for spring tea, just finished reading Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, last week read Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. So my tea today is inspired by Jane Austen's Mansfield Park to the trees, flowers, bird baths, and gardens. When I was deciding what my tea was today was drawn to the Cup n Saucer it just reminded me of Fanny, such a refreshing lovely young lady she was... so our tea today will be with Miss Price.
March is coming up, daffodil month here, so using my yellow teapot.
this cake plate was my mil's, the long gowns, beautiful flowers, reminded me of Fanny or Elinor?
or maybe Emma, staring that one today, although so far not so elegant or rich of a
a life, but I'm sure it will change. All the gardens sound so beautiful.
this is teacup and saucer I got at auction about three months ago, such a pretty gown...
my apologies for teacup and saucer below, the saucer is upside down, duhhhhhhhhhhh,
springtime it's coming, trees are getting their leaves, flowers are blooming,
this is a Shelley called Daffodil Time and it sure is-if this snow ever leaves
added some Royal Winton candlesticks, roses-roses are always welcome
the teacup and saucer of the lady in the gown is a Colclough
the sandwich or cake plate is Birdbath
I needed some Daffodils and I know I will go to town tomorrow and will see a pile of them. Usually on the street corners, but to early yet.
I can't believe I took all those pictures and saucer is upside down.
Every Friday for 42 years, I stage our auctions, arrange furniture, to look appealing, we try to
make it look like it is in your home. China and glasses, in cabinets, arranged neatly, but the
most important thing is cups n saucers are arrange with saucer -if a scene -top is at the top, teacup always has handle facing to the right and they are all lined up like little soldiers and I didn't see this.
I would be fired and that would really upset me, the pay is so much...
what a lovely water fountain with all the blue and yellow flowers in the background.
yellow is so uplifting isn't it, nice to use in this dull month.
we used this teapot for years, love it, but you can see all the age marks
(their is a name for that), so got worried it might get broken. Friends have one
like this in a royal blue and it is gorgeous
as you can see the background of the pond is still full of snow, hopefully this week will mostly be gone. Storm coming from the states Wednesday, but not much longer now, March 1st Friday, what a joyous feeling that spring is around the corner,
