The Tea Caddy is a little shop in England devoted to the most beautiful teapots and wonderful teas.
It is a little thatched roof English Cottage style building.
Here is a little teapot I would have loved. Isn't it adorable! Yes, that is matching mugs to the right.
There was also a little chintzware violet tea cup that would have been a great match to the tea pot.
This was also a beautiful chintzware teapot covered in daffodils and English ivy. All of the tea pots and cup I believe were by Royal Albert and made in England of course.
Here is one more teapot with some lovely drawings of butterflies, flowers, and a bee.
Alice had her own teapot this year. You could get it in a 1-cup version or this full sized teapot with cups to match.
In fact Alice herself was outside rounding up patrons for the tea party as I snapped some
What would a tea party be without a lovely place to take a spot of tea and the shop has a perfect place by this knot garden out back.
These images always bring to mind my favorite copies of Victoria magazine. Kathy at A Delightsome Life has created a new meme devoted to the "old" Victoria magazine. There was a certain magic to the old magazine that was very appealing.
I happened to save a few copies of the "old" magazine. Like so many of you it was my favorite magazine ever! It was so romantic and the features never disappointed. My favorite issues were always ones where they went to England.
I loved the thatched cottages and the Tudor style country cottages. It reminds my of my favorite little tea shop in Epcot.
The thing that I always loved about this Victoria was there were segments in the front of the magazine called "My Favorite Things," "Leaves," and "Children's Corner." These little features were as good as the main features. I always savored every page. This is one is about violets in a "Leaves" feature.
A dish and a teapot with violets on it reminds of the tea sets I found this year at The Tea Caddy.
Victoria taught me what a proper tea was. They set up the most romantic and visually appealing tables ever.
Thanks for traveling to England with me through Epcot and Victoria magazine.
I will join these lovely tea parties and Kathy's new meme on Victoria magazine.
