How I adore my tea books!
I have been adding to my collection for years.
This one is by E. Barnes & S. Rios and may be found here.
(Again, not a paid endorsement, just sharing my love of all things tea.)
It's a growing collection, not *quite* as large as my china.
This little rose swag tea cup is one from Bavaria probably from around the 40s. I only have two.
I love it's feminine simplicity.
Seems to fit right in with a delicate little paper doilie, old crocheted lace and a tiny white creamer holding sweet Baby's Breath.
It somehow just takes us back to a simpler, slower time.
Nowhere is the English genius of demosticity more notably evident than in the festival afternoon tea. The..chink of cups and the saucers tunes the mind to happy repose. ~G. Gissing
Ahem.....how did that bird sneak into this tea photo shoot?
(One never knows what these birds here at Finch Rest will next do!)
Happy Tea Tuesday!
