It was time to give the tea trolley a new look, so this weekend, inspired by all the beautiful blossoms in nature, I pulled out some chintz and rose pieces and went for a frilly floral look! I suppose I will never tire of admiring the queen of flowers.
Here's what the finished trolley looks like.
My Royal Winton Welbeck teapot almost always comes out in spring.
And I also love this pink rose teapot and sugar bowl that my late mother found for me. (Still looking for the creamer, cheap!)
My vintage topper was lovingly embroidered, probably years ago, by someone who liked tea, since she (I'm assuming it was a she) embroidered a teapot …
My dainty little rose figurine belonged to the mother of my friend Ann, who passed it along to me a few weeks ago.
And my $10 Mary Engelbreit teacup stand remains one of my best antique mall finds ever. I love the fact that few of these things actually match, yet they all play well together!
