Pink Saturday All Spooned Up!!

Saturday means Pink Saturday hosted by our gracious hostess Beverly over at
http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/myweblog/.com. Once there you'll find a wonderful world of pink.





A few weeks ago while I was changing a few things up around here I pulled out yet another tea set. Yes, girls I believe I've gone nuts over tea sets. I have quite a few of them. lol.



Gracefully displayed with the back drop of the green plates and cream chargers the colors seem to flow nicely together. The arch of the handles on the cups suggest an elegance all on their own. I think Miss Janice would be pleased that the spoons are on the saucer. :-)




The antique bowl laced with pink roses was found many years ago. Quite honestly I can't remember where I found it.. lol.. I decided to fill it full of small tea spoons decorated with more beautiful pink roses.



Thanks again to a gracious hostess Beverly for a wonderful day full of pink. I know you're biting at the bit to get over to Beverly's to check out the other beautiful world of pink participants.. I'll see you there... hugs ~lynne~

Precious Lynne!

I just love this one with the delicate roses and the cute spoons.

Hi Lynne,
Thank you for all your lovely comments that you leave for me on my blog.

I just love your beautiful photographs of this pretty design. I actually think I photographed and styled the same design for Vogue Entertaining Guide magazine over 25 years ago. I will try and find the story. A favourite then and still gorgeous,

I actually have pink cupcakes for Beverly's Pink Party that would match your teaset perfectly. I will be posting it in a few hours.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could have afternoon tea together one day.

Have a happy weekend,

xxx hugs Coty

Hi Lynne...There is something about tea sets that make them so desirable...I really don't drink hot tea, but that doesn't stop me from loving tea sets...I only have one...but maybe it's lonesome & I should look for some more...your set is gorgeous & I love the way you've displayed it! ;-) Bo

My Grandson and I watched a Mom Swap and one of the Moms had a home based business where she brings young girls into her home for an afternoon tea and a lesson in manners. I thought how nice this would be, to get girls out of their jeans and into dresses and your lovely tea set made me remember this lady. This was way more information than you most likely wanted....have a smiley day!

That bowl is beautiful. I was on ebay yesterday trying to help another blogger, and the white bowl almost looks like a Fenton bowl I saw over there...so, it may be worth alot! :O)

Lady Katherine said...

I just love your pink rose tea pot, and teacups! It is so lovely!!! The lace so pretty with it! Oh, how I love the rose spoons! I have never seen any like them! Oh, how I wish I could find a set of spoons! Are they new??????? If so where can I find them???? I have fallen in love again! lol Hope you and Hubby are doing great! I got to go shopping about six times this month! For someone that near never left the house in 3 years! I have had so much fun! After shopping one night, Hubby and I went fishing! I never liked to fish, but it was so fun. We were back in the old days at our favorite places. I have bought so much. I went yesterday to My granddaughter's third Birthday Party. She was so excited with her table and chairs, for she also got a stove with dishes and another tea set and a Kettle! Love your pink rose set!

Such an adorable tea set! Do you possibly have a secret to storing goodies like this. Every cupboard of mine is stuffed..yes, yes, I need to have a garage sale...but...I just cannot let go of many of my goodies yet. Any ideas?
Hugs to you my sweet friend,
Mona
