Little Yellow Tea Pot

Hello Everyone,
I hope you've been enjoying the Autumn weather. I know it's not Autumn on the calender, but there is something in the air. Cooler nights and shorter days.  I have been having a great time lately going to the thrift store and finding some little treasures. I shared with you last week my pink tea pot. Go Here
Today the Little Yellow Tea Pot is going to be center stage.  Of course a little Lavender is always fun.
Gibsons  Staffordshire England

I set the little white table in the corner with my indoor plants as a back drop. Added some candle light and my lavender cups and saucers.
Royal Albert Bone China 'Lavender'.

A basket of Lavender and a yellow linen napkin...Little lavender buds are scattered on the napkin.

The vintage bird cage has a new home for the fall and the 'Peace Plant is blooming again.
A Twinings Limited Edition of Lavender Earl Grey in the choice of tea today. While on my trip to England I visited the Twining's store in London. I brought a few samples of tea home to enjoy when I feel the desire to go back for another visit. (And it works too.)  

I love linens. This is a sweet pale yellow and it's so charming.

Small tea spoons from my great-grandmother. The delicate silver engraving is amazing.
My basket of lavender adds a wonderful scent to my tea table.

The yellow tea pot is decorated with hand painted gold trim and a very attractive trim.

  8. Hello Betty,
    Your tea today is very pretty! I adore your yellow and lavender theme. The tea cups are so beautiful! I have not seen this pattern before. It looks amazing with your pale yellow linens and the tea pot. I must say, I love your tea pot! It really is a stunning vintage one!

  9. Your teapot and lavender cups are exquisite. I love the luster on them, it's glistening! Those linens are also so lovely.I can smell the lavender from here....hmmmmmm....Christine

  10. WOW! Can I come to the tea time? You made it so tempting with the lovely lavender cups and saucers plus teaplate or trio. The tea accessories are so delightful. The yellow lusterware teapot with the lavender is a perfect color combination! The silverware in the pitcher captured my attention with the corn handle! It all reminds me of the fields of lavender we saw growing!

    Thanks, Pam
