St Patrick's Day Tea Time

Hello everyone,
Spring is almost here, and my daffodils are trying to survive the warm and cold
spells we keep experiencing here in Northern California. I found
my precious vintage Aynsley Porcelain Shamrock Clover
teacup and saucer from England at my favorite antique shop last month. 


My daffodils are standing in an ironstone creamer from the same antique shop.
I could spend many hours and a ton of money in the precious place.

The old tea leaves spoon has been in my family since I was a small child.
When I was young, it would be a special treat to be able 
to use the precious spoon for my
cup of tea. 
A tea bag holder, a beaded napkin ring, and gold trimmed napkin
captures St. Patrick's Day Tea Time.
A mosaic is a visual gift of my favorite teacup and saucer for 
March. 
Hope you enjoyed your visit
see you soon. 
Joyously,
Betty

  5. Betty your Aynsley shamrock teacup and saucer are perfect for the season and St Patrick's Day celebrations. Mu Nana used to have a tea spoon similar to yours as I recall and is a lovely nostalgic touch to your setting.
    So good to have your company @ MM again this week.
