Welcome to Friends Sharing Tea and a lovely spring time day. You know that spring is finally arriving when you see some bugs flying about and some birds chasing them. That seems to be happening today.
I hope that by next week I can begin my weekly "Tea In The Garden" for the rest of the spring through fall. I keep thinking it must
be time and then we still have some snow.
For today we must be still inside the house so
I am sharing a new English bone china, Salisbury hand painted cup and saucer.
Lately I have been attracted to these figurines as well. There are many kinds "out there", but I am drawn to the glazed, Japanese whimsical ones. These are occupied Japan which means 1945 to 1952.
Do pour yourself a cup of tea from my Sadler Teapot and let's chat about some of the recipes in these wonderful tea books.
The words Salisbury, Rosina, Shelley, Royal Albert, Foley, Tuscan, Victoria, Royal Standard, Royal Minister, Royal Vale, Roslyn, Royal Grafton, Staffordshire, Clarence, Queen Anne, Hammersley, Regency, Queen's, Jason, Aynsley, Taylor & Kent, Paragon, Royal Chelsea, Royal Stafford, Royal Victoria, Ardalt, Colclough, etc are music to my ears!
