Time for tea

For those of you that know me, you will know that I am very fond of a cuppa, or two, or three...

So whilst on holiday, we stumbled across a flea market in Mevagissey, so of course I had to have a look. There was a stall selling trios of china, a cup, saucer and side plate for £1.

I was quite happily going to treat myself to a set, when the stall holder said if I bought the whole 5 sets, he would throw in a teapot and sugar bowl for nothing, plus an extra saucer and plate. So I got the whole lot for a fiver - minus one cup which he said had gone missing, and I am really pleased with it all. It does mean I only have a set of five, but they do look lovely in my dresser.




It is Royal Stafford Bone China in the 'Roses to Remember' design and I just love it. Very Chintzy, but great! Now I just have to have some guests for tea and cake.....

What a fabulous find, lucky you. Teasets like these are a joy to use and display aren't they.
