For quite a few years I have looked for a
Welbeck tea set or at least the teapot that
was sold through Victoria Magazine back
in the l990's. Last month was my birthday
and we went to Kansas City for the day.
On the way back we stopped in a
small town antique mall and look what I found:
I was beside my with happiness when I
happened upon a booth with this set and
the seller had proudly displayed the
magazine pages where the Welbeck
Chintzware was sold. I got all the
pieces above for $140.00.
Since it is the first "official" day of spring
I thought I would enjoy it in the kitchen.
When we lived in Colorado, there
was a woman who had a booth along
the feeder road flea markets in
Ft. Collins. She wanted $150.00
for the Welbeck teapot. I sure
wanted it but that was a lot of
money for me so I always looked
at it lovingly and passed it up.
Springtime is always a joyful
time to decorate with bunnies.
And of course pansies
are an expected item.
So how about you - are
you ready to decorate for spring?
