OLD COUNTRY ROSES for "Friends Sharing Tea"

Today I am enjoying a little
tea time by the fireplace and
some Sugar Cookies.  As
we approach Valentines Day,
I imagine there will be lots of
baking going on.

I decided to put out my "Old Country
Roses" china for a while to enjoy...

I enjoy the artist Nicole Sayre.
(click below if interested) 
 You might be interested to know
 that Nicole will be selling 
her one of a kind,
hand made original dolls 
tonight at 5 pm.PST 
expensive, they sell very quickly.
 I just enjoy seeing each creation.
 My Nicole dolls (angels)are just
 the mass manufactured
cheaper ones.

I am sure you are familiar with Old
Country Roses.  I got my pieces about
ten years ago from a lady who didn't want
them.  My husband thought it would
be nice for our 40th Anniversary.
I love that they are the
"English" ones too.

I hope you will join in my blog link
party if you have a tea related post
to share here at the bottom.

I am linking too!

Your OCR is perfect for a Valentine tea, Bernideen! I've always admired your Nicole Sayre dolls. I would love to have some myself. I wish I could join you for a cookie and a cup of tea. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week.

You amaze me with your energy,always rearranging your china. I love every set you have and they look so good in your open china cabinet.
I'm sure you will be baking up a storm for Valentine's Day

I won't be purchasing any of the Nicole Sayre dolls either.I do love all your mass produced dolls.

I haven't made tea in my newest antique cups yet. So glad to join in today

I have always loved that set although I don't have it myself. One of my dear friends has the complete set and, when she was in her old house, used it everyday. I love when people do that!

I love sugar cookies and now my mouth is watering for some homemade ones. If I want to treat myself to just one (so I don't eat a whole pile of them) I stop at Perkins. The Perkins closest to my house has the best sugar cookies I have ever eaten. xo Diana


What a beautiful collection of Old Country Roses dear friend ! One of my fav patterns, but I only have a three tier server and a platter I bought in Madrid.
Thanks for the this inspiring tea party.

Hi Bernideen,
I love your Royal Albert Old Country Rose collection. It's perfect for Valentine's Day and looks amazing on your pink shelf (swoon - love that pink shelf). I do prefer those tea sets Made in England too. Thank you for hosting Friends Sharing Tea! Blessings! Karen

Thank you for visiting the "Vintage Valentine" blog hop. Your China is beautiful, so much beautiful in your home. A great way to celebrate your anniversary.

Bernideen, I love the way you've displayed your OCR! I have just the teapot, creamer and sugar, four teacups and saucers - from the "made in England" years. I was going to use the photo of my teapot stamped shortbreads, but then I thought I'd use the photo with the red to go with your OCR!

I love your pink china hutch! I clicked on the post, and once I realized it was also a linky party, I couldn't resist. My hutch has 2 valentine teacups in it...
