A Breath of Fresh Air...

Spring Tea, The Charm of Home
I am trying to wait patiently for pretty weather but, it just isn't getting here this week.  So, I am creating it here with my spring tea. 

Spring Tea, The Charm of Home
There isn't a tea set more evocative of spring than chintzware.  This set made by Royal Winton of England.

The chance is really beautiful. It looks so beautiful with the pink tulips.

We just had a couple of above average temp days and it was lovely but back to very cold this week

What a pretty picture your chintz and tulips make, Sherry! LOVE the chintz! The yellow sprinkled with posies says springtime so well. It is cold here too this week and I am longing for Spring to come. My, but it's been a long winter. Keep warm and enjoy your tea time.

A delightful tea table with the Royal Winton chintz and some spring tulips.

Bernideen said...

That set is one of the most beautiful ever made!

Veronica Roth said...

That's lovely. Over the years I've thought about chintz wear but haven't bought any yet. It really is very spring like, isn't it? Hope your week is shaping up to be just lovely. :)

Hello Sherry,
I love this tea pot and cup! I have the same tea pot and I adore it. I do not have the matching cup though. I have one that is similar but not a match. Your tulips are just the right shade of pink to go with it.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Your photos are stunning and you have ignited Spring in my heart!

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...

Sherry....when I first saw those lovely tulips with your pretty teapot...I immediately felt myself sigh. You know the kind where all the winter angst leaves your body and you relax? Yup...that kind! ;)

Thanks for sharing your dream of springtime with us at Project Inspire{d}!!
