I love this set, Cheryl. The pattern and colors appeal to me greatly. Remember when I said I had the really small teacups and saucers? My Mom has some pretty sets and when I visit her we have tea!
Only one I have is a Rose pattern from Japan, my grandmother's. I called her Nana. Not as pretty as these but sentimental. I had a full 12 place setting but gave it to my sister since I didn't wash by hand at the time. Now haven't used a dishwasher in almost 3 yrs!
I use mine at Christmastime, having a tea for my lady friends. We have scones and finger sandwiches and the whole bit. I have teapots, too, and we make several varieties of tea.
The pale pink wash behind the roses really sets them off. Pink was my Mom's favorite color. She collected miniature tea sets so I have one in pink & purple (MY favorite color) from her. I bought A Cup of Christmas Tea set from the story by that name. No surprise a booklover would have something like that! Have a couple of souvenir very small ones from San Francisco & Mt Rushmore.Cheryl, I have a square teapot from Jan Karon's "At Home in Mitford" book series from my days with Hallmark Cards. Yet another tie in to books! LOL
OMG! I love scones and cucumber finger sandwiches. Had them in England when we went for tea. Also had some delicious scones when I visited my Mom in FL in May.
Just lovely...it would probably be broken here.
