If you stopped by for a visit last week, you saw what I jokingly called "part one" of my sick obsession when it comes to collecting beautiful china and that was my pretty yellow and rose tea set. This week, you are getting to see part two of that same crazy obsession, but this time in blue.
The blue teapot is different from the others in that it has a slightly unusual shape to it. This one has more of a squat oblong shape while the others have a more "normal" shape to them. Maybe that's my way of justifying having the same floral patterned teapots in three different colors. I had to add the blue one to my collection just because it was "different"than the rest.
I don't have as many pieces in this set as I did in the yellow set I shared with you last week. This one only has the teapot, teacup and saucer and a desert size plate...
The robin's egg blue color of the background just happens to be one of my favorites shades of blue so I definitely could not pass this one up.This week, I'm adding something a little extra to my "Tea Things Tuesday" post so I can share with you one of my latest Etsy purchases from the lovely Rhea at http://sweetnshabbyroses.blogspot.com/
When Rhea's health allows, she creates the most amazing faux pastries that she sells in her Etsy shop. Just last month, I purchased this set of three pink faux cupcakes that are topped with pretty paper roses. These are so pretty for displaying alongside my tea things and I'm lucky that Rhea is just like me and loves the soft shades of pink, green and blue.
At the time I am writing this post early Monday afternoon, she still had a few cupcake sets for sale in her Etsy shop. One in pink and a couple of mini cupcake sets in aqua. If you'd like to have a set similar to mine, I definitely recommend you check her Etsy shop out to see what she still has left. Be generous and treat yourself to a sweet and pretty early Christmas gift just like I did for myself.
After you've done that, visit the blogs of these lovely ladies to see what pretty tea things they are sharing with us this week:
