So I'm going out to check the mailbox one night this week when, off to the side of the front door, I spot a large cardboard box sitting in my empty planter. Did I order something and forget? I don't think so. Then I see that it's from Margie, a longtime tea friend and reader of this blog in California. To my delight, she has gifted me with some gorgeous teawares in the prettiest pale aqua color I've ever seen. These are such elegant and detailed pieces!
Isn't this cup and saucer set just exquisite?
I have a real "thing" for a teacup with a pretty handle, and this may well be one of the fanciest ones I've ever owned!
And look at the base of this elegant footed teacup. Lovely!
Here's a detail from one of the rose designs on the tidbit dish. You can even feel the raised white paint from the highlights on the roses.
The cup and saucer are both unmarked, but the back of the tidbit dish has this backstamp, which is a new one to me. Now I have something new to research while I'm enjoying my beautiful and thoughtful new gifts from Margie!
