Tea Things Tuesday......


Hello my sweet tea loving friends...

I'm glad you are here today for some more tea time fun. This wonderful "Tea Things Tuesday" event is quickly coming to an end and next week will sadly be the last week. Yes, I am just about to the end of my teapot collection if you can believe it. I wish I could continue this forever, but I can't.

While we are still able to enjoy this event, I am sharing the third installment of my "sick obsession". Over the past two weeks, I shared with you my yellow and blue rose tea sets and this week, you get to see the pink version.

First up is the teapot.....

Followed by the matching teacup.....

And finally, the complete set...

Looking very closely at each piece sitting next to each other, I just realized that the pink background on the teapot appears to be somewhat faded as compared to the background on the teacup and desert plate. I wondering why that is. I'm surprised I never noticed that before. I wonder if the color on the teapot faded as it is sometimes exposed to sunlight while sitting in my china cabinet??? Hmmmmmm.

Oh well, either way it is still beautiful and I love it just the same.

Has anyone ever had this problem before with the colors on china fading like that when it's exposed to sunlight?

Make sure you come back week as I've saved the best for last. You won't want to miss it. Until then, take a little MckLinky stroll and visit the blogs of these other ladies who have some more tea things to share with us today.

Hi Kim,
I LOVE, love, love your Chintz! I am a very big fan of Chintz anyway, doesn't matter what colour it is. Yours is really sweet! I'm sharing for the last week because my youngest son will be coming home next week for the holidays. Thank you for hosting these parties, even though I only participated twice, I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to see what you come up with next! Merry Christmas!

Blessings,
Sandi

I still haven't found the pink, Kim...you were lucky to find it. I have the yellow and blue, but pink is the one I really want! Oh well, someday. Sorry to see our tea things end, but we can still post new tea items when we get them, right? Its been such fun...thanks for taking care of it...if it were up to me, it never would have happened! I have no idea how to do this linky thing...so you are very appreciated!

God bless,
Mary

I've cerainly had fabrics fade from sunlight but wouldn't think that china could...

Hi Kim,
Oh so pretty. I could not tell from the picture it was faded at all. This is a very perky set! I'll have to visit everyone else after work, got a late start this week. I think I was putting it off because I just don't want it to end! Have a wonderful week.
