Lavender Tea Cups

As you know from my past posts, I love Lavender and Tea.  I found two beautiful tea cups, saucers and dessert plates at the Antique Mall.  A very thrifty find.  Later this year I'm giving a tea for my dear friends celebrating 42 years of friendship.  I have been collecting three piece tea sets and the two lavender sets were the last to complete a place setting for twelve.  It's so nice to have a matching cup, saucer and dessert plate.  

The tea cup, saucer and dessert plate are 'Lavender' Archive Collectable Teas, Royal Albert, Bone China.

This vintage square table cloth is so lovely with my thrifty silver-plated tray on top.

The vintage tea napkin is on top of the thrifty silver-plated tray.

Lots of Lavender

Oh the sweet smell of lavender from my garden.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit to My Cozy Corner.  I love sharing my treasures with such wonderful friends.

  1. I love that tea set, it's very unusual looking with the exterior different than the interior. Great find and your pictures are gorgeous. Enjoy your tea with you friends, I love that idea. Mary

  2. It's a lovely idea to celebrate friendship and what fun to collect china to make the occasion extra special.

  3. So beautiful teacups, perfect for a sweet tea time!

  4. Oh my, your vignette is lovely. I love the lavender, lace, teacups and the crystal. Everything is beautifully displayed. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  5. Those cups are out of this world!!! And, of course, I adore the embroidery on the tablecloth. The setting is wonderful. I also think lavender is an amazing plant.

  6. What a beautiful lavender post. We grow lots of lavender here at Pondside, but I never seem to harvest my own and end up buying it from the lavender farm. I spray my pillows with lavender water every night before I go to bed - a sure way to have sweet dreams.

  7. What a beautiful post and I love the teacups and that pattern is lovely! I think I need to buy some lavender!

  8. Oh, Betty, that lavender must smell heavenly. I love the beautiful tea sets you have been collecting. I am sure your friends will enjoy their tea from them very much. Congratulations on 42 years of friendship~Happy Tea Time to you~Vicki

  10. Betty, your lavender teacups are gorgeous as are all the pieces! I love lavender too and how lovely your teascape is with both the china and the florals!

  24. Hello Betty
    Thanks for visiting, it's so nice that we both love lavender.
    Your cups and saucers are gorgeous - I've never seen that pattern before but would love to have tea with you using them.
    In Victoria we were warned that afternoon tea at the Empress would run $70-$80 and that wouldn't have mattered to me. Oh well, gives us an excuse to go back again sometime. :-)

  25. Hello Betty, Your tea cups are so lovely, and to have fresh, wonderfully fragrant lavender from the garden! I do have some Lavender in my little garden, but I never did cut some to bring into the house to dry :( I'll have to remember to do that next year.

    Wishing you a lovely Tea Tuesday!
    Warmest, Brenda

  26. Your lavender pictures are really just beautiful!

  27. Lavender and teacups...what a lovely combination!
    I'm a teacup collector, so I'm totally loving your tea posts.

  28. I love the fragrance of lavender and combined with your lovely china your tea was delightful I am sure. Have a great weekend, Betty.

  29. Oh what glorious teacups. That saucer is stunning. I can almost smell it through the computer. Lovely post.
