Good afternoon ladies :) Today I thought I would do my "Tea" post on our front covered porch. It is a bit warm out today and rather over-cast, but there is a nice breeze which feels so good! For this weeks vignette I've chosen this corner which has our wooden glider...I've covered it today with a pretty pink rose quilt and some lovely vintage barkcloth pillows. You'll also see some pretty pink flowers, both real and faux; a wicker table that I've draped with a sweet vintage rose tablecloth, pink wicker picnic basket, pretty vintage cutwork tea towel, Lefton teapot, some pretty rose vintage plates, one of Rhonda's pretty faux cake slices, a cute little winged cherub statue, and of course, this weeks featured teacup :)
Here is an up-close picture of some of today's items...
And here is this week's featured Teacup. This cup is by Royal Vale, and has pretty pink roses and rosebuds that adorn the outside of the cup, and it has gold trim along the rim, at the bottom, and on the handle too.
Here is the saucer....such pretty pink roses, and it too is trimmed in gold.
Here is the marking on the bottom of the cup...this same marking is on the bottom of the saucer too.
This set of 6 plates I found at the Goodwill store last week Friday for just $3 ! What a find these are!!
This is a Vintage Redmon picnic basket, made in Peru Indiana. This belonged to my mother, and when she passed away 4 years ago, I was the one who handled the Estate sale of her items....luckily no one purchased it! I decided to keep it, and had it stored in our basement; completely forgotten...when yesterday while looking for something else, I came across it. I decided to paint it this pretty soft pink, which I think looks just fabulous!! I did not paint the inside; wanted to keep it intact, as it still has the elastic strap on the inside of the lid for holding utensils, and the wooden stand too!
