Tea Time Trio~Keepsake too

Welcome to another Tea Time Tuesday as I join the list of participants hosted by dear Sandi of Rose Chintz Cottage.As I mentioned in my last tea time post, I found a few tea cup pretties while treasure hunting on vacation.

This pretty trio in a gorgeous rose design was marked anniversary on the makers mark and perfect to celebrate our special trip. The great surprise was I found 2 sets of the trio. They look wonderful with my Churchill black and white dishes.

On my treasure hunt I also found this darling hand painted Lefton cup. The design and color was so pretty, the pedestal style and delicate strokes are a favorite of mine when I find them. As I looked closer, I noticed it all alone on a shelf, no saucer and no matching pieces. Well, you know what happened next. Priced at only 4 dollars, this little darling had to find it's way home with me.
Once home, among my dish collection, I found a saucer that made the perfect little coordinated finish to this lonely beauty. Now complete and at home in my kitchen hutch.

Today's tea is a welcome break and perfect to enjoy with the latest addition of Tea Time Magazine. And, on page 7 is our latest ad with Shabby Cottage Shops.

Inspired by the tea cups this week, I designed this tea bag keeper using an old keepsake box. This little treasure will fill the shelves HERE soon.

Thank you for stopping by for tea. Your visits and comments are always welcome.

See you soon and till then, I'll be elbow deep in my studio working on special treasures and preparing for the season to follow.
In the meantime, Thoughts and prayers go out to all our friends on the east coast affected by the hurricane over the weekend. God Bless you all.
