Each Thursday a few dozen bloggers join Colorado Lady to celebrate our love of Vintage Thingies so check out the other bloggers listed there.This past week I realized that I had omitted a couple of cups and saucers from the VTT post I did a few weeks ago, these two were on a different shelf and were overlooked.
The first has violets-I am particularly fond of violets, my Mum used to have them growing almost wild in her very English style garden at Leura in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. As a child I was permitted to pick a few to place in a vase on my dressing table, the fragrance was so sweet.Made in England by Royal Vale company.
The second shows posies of a daisy and perhaps Forget- me -Nots..........manufactured by Rosina China company, England
Both are dainty bone china sets for the nicest cup of tea.
The final tea related item I purchased in Oxford, England in 1971. It is a typically English teapot, china pots make the best tea!
The castle depicted is Windsor Castle, the largest inhabited castle in the world, almost 500,000 square feet- in the center is the distinctive Round Tower!
This castle dates back to William the Conqueror and is one of the official residences of the British Monarchy. Far left in the picture above is the Round Tower shown on my teapot.
