I'm Late I'm Late for Teacup Tuesday

There is nothing like homemade scones, clotted cream and some lovely homemade strawberry conserve, to make you feel relaxed!

Well I must say after several hours running around, doing a photo shoot for the Jilly's Vintage Tea Party and not eating much all day, I really felt like sleeping.
So now that  I am sitting down with a lovely cup of tea and a Devon-shire style scone, (made by me) it was quite a relief for it finally to be over.....hope you like the photographs!
More will be showing up over the next few weeks, as I now  have the cds through, with all the photographs on.
This is one of my favourite cups, made by Salisbury and  I have even managed to get some "apostle" teaspoons too.

Take care Jilly

My second Teacup for Teacup Tuesday

I just love this beautiful Tuscan pink trio, and what is even more
wonderful, is that I have three more just the same too! I couldn't resist this set when I found them, they are for sale in the shop in Wellington (The Old Sale Rooms), but I don't really mind if they stay for a little while be The Old Romantic and I, could share a pot of Earl Grey.

My Grandmother's Teacup

I just love this little mug, which my late Grandmother, used to call her "little teacup", apparently when she was young! It looks so typically child like, and has such sweet little pictures on, that one simply has to adore it!
