Thanksgiving Tea Time

Hello everyone,
Next Thursday we will be reunited with our family
and I will especially grateful.
This Tea Time today is the November photo in
my 2017 calendar.  I have ordered some for 
Christmas gifts for my special friends and family.
I will give you a look when I have my Tea Time review
at the end of this year.
Royal Albert 'Old Country Roses' is a timeless china pattern.
I must admit I was blessed to find the dishes in this post.
I had one cup I found at the thrift store a few years ago.
But this summer while I was yard-sale shopping on a 
Saturday morning I found these dishes and the candle holder.
I bought all the dishes for $5.00. Yes! 
I did have the napkin rings I bought at my 
favorite thrift store.
The white teapot caught my eye at T.J.Maxx, and I 
knew it was going to be a delicious addition to my
Tea Time tablescape.
I am so in love with this dish pattern. 
The best-selling dinnerware pattern in the world, the Old Country Roses pattern is practically synonymous with the name Royal Albert and a long-standing testament to timeless style and elegant craftsmanship. 
Old Country Roses' signature motif of burgundy, pink and yellow roses, accented with lustrous gold banding. 

What is more appropriate to have on my tea table
but Country Roses freshly picked from
my garden.  A variety of colors and the
scent of the roses in the house is incredible.

Thank you for visiting, and I would like to 
wish you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving holiday.
