Back to what it's about...

When I started this blog - ooh about 18 months ago, I had no idea really what I would write about. I still don't but looking at the title I thought I'd better post something about tea! I happened upon this little beauty yesterday and I COULD NOT RESIST. It combines some of my most favourite things

1: Green
2: Polka Dots
3: China
4: Painted Roses
5: Teacups

It would have been rude to leave it there don't you think?

It is a set from the Royal Albert 100th Anniversary Collection, it's called Polka Rose and is from the 1930's.

In other news, I've heard I've been accepted onto a pottery course which is starting in September! I expect I shall be producing lots of ashtrays and paperweights to start with, but I'm really looking forward to it! You never know, I may start producing my own tea accoutrement's before you know it....

Oh wow, Sarah. You are just going to love that! I did a couple of pottery evening classes years ago and I'm still using the lasagne dish I made today (it's bloomin heavy too!) Yep, all that squishing and rolling and spinning and.... well, lets just say it's FUN! xxxx

Very Pretty cup, saucer & plate set. You couldn't have left it. I'm sure it will be very happy at your house!
Lucky you, I always wanted to get my hands into pottery clay. You will have fun.
Don't forget to let me know what day you want to go to BQF.
