To see larger photos, click to enlarge..

The May-June 2009 Victoria magazine is one of my favorites, featuring blue and white...
one of the open pages with an article on linens...it just happens that I have one of the patterns...

There is also a feature on blue and white Wedgewood ...

I have photographed some of my pieces alongside the article...001004001
....here is my interpretation of blue and white...

As a nod to the current issue of Victoria, which features some tea tables in green, I have  set out my own little tea table, with some scones...


...or perhaps you'd like to help yourself to a chocolate-cherry morsel?

On this spring day, I am joining in with :
Mary's Mosaic Monday, on whose blog you will see some lovely snowdrops:
Also,  Sandi is having a special tea party today, so be sure to go over there and enjoy her lovely blog

Hello Millie,
How lovely to have you join me for my Spring tea! Your Wedgewood is just beautiful and your photos are as well! I would love to try one of your chocolate-cherry morsels with a cup of tea; sounds decadent! Your presence has made the tea party even more special. Thank you for sharing and enjoy this first week of Spring.

Blessings,
Sandi

Having joined Mosaic Monday this week I am now enjoying blog hopping around the world admiring everyone else's beautiful photography and gaining inspiration. It cheers me when so much of the world around us is in turmoil for one reason or another.

Someone likes Wedgewood :)
