Tea Time

Things have been very hectic around here (not even time to blog!) but it’s time to take a break and enjoy a cup of coffee and a slice of lemon loaf.


Part of our busy-ness was continuing to move my Mom’s things from her house, which is now sold. Since she had to down-size drastically, she gave us many pieces of china, and I received some lovely china cups and saucers.

I remember this cup and saucer  in a place of honour in her china cabinet from when I was a child.003


A very unrealistic bird, to be sure!


It seems I have quite a few Foley pieces…even my wedding china was Foley! They must have been a very prolific maker.

I am going to join in with Sandi’s Tea Time today…I can always count on seeing many other tea partiers…

Hi Millie,
how sweet of your Mom to gift you this beautiful tea cup. It must be a joy for her that you treasure it so much. It is just gorgeous. The bird is not realistic but a sight into your cup is like looking through a window to paradise. Thank you for sharing this treasure.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello Millie,
What a lovely treasure from your mother! Thank you for sharing it with us today.
The bird is very colourful and quite whimsical; perfect for my fairies! Your lemon loaf looks delicious! Nice to have you for tea.

Beautiful china, I love the bird, it's certainly colourful. I love pieces of china that have a special memory attached to it. I think of you every time I look at my turquoise teacup and saucer and the lovely white pitcher that you have me. You're my first blogging friend.
The lemon loaf looks delicious.
Hugs, Cindy

I guess I missed this post Millie. Downsizing a parent is such a huge task and I guess we'll be the next parents to downsize some day. The teacup is beautiful. I have a small dessert plate with a similar bird on it. Pamela
