Tea time at my aunt's garden

This week, I'm sharing a teacup and teapot that I passed on to my aunt (who baked my awesome birthday cake), as part of my ongoing efforts to downsize my collection. My aunt kindly agreed to let me do a tea time photo shoot in her lovely garden.

The unmarked teapot is decorated with dainty yellow roses and has serious Royal Albert vibes. The teacup (made by Paragon) and saucer are mismatched.

It's easier to part with my tea pretties when I know that they're going to a good home!

I'm joining Tea in the Garden this week.


  1. I'm sure your aunt will love and enjoy your teacup and teapot that you gifted to her. I agree, that it's easier to part with things when you know that they're going to a good home. I love you aunt's pretty outdoor table and chair!

  2. How very lovely your photo place is for these lovely items. I'm sure a good many cups of tea will be enjoyed with these!

  3. Awe, how sweet to gift your aunt such lovelies. I know she was thrilled. Loved the picture. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Two very beautiful pieces, my friend. And I can imagine your aunt was richly blessed by your love and generosity. You have such a big heart!

    Hugs to you!

  5. Hi Margie
    I love your aunts bright bistro set. You are so generous to part with your pretties. The teapot definitely looks like a Royal Albert. Mismatched teacups and saucers often look better than the matches. Your paragon is a beauty. Have a great week! Karen

  6. Really Tea pretties in a lovely garden!Your Aunt should be very especial for you...Greetings!

  7. Oh, yes, Margie, we must see that such things go to a good home! Your aunt's garden looks like a lovely spot for a tea party.

  8. How wonderful Margie that you were able to bless your Aunt and also do this photo shoot which is lovely! Thanks for sharing.

  9. What a lucky auntie dear Margie... wish I was close by to help you downsize, lol..
    I love the teapot and teacup, and right on that lovely bistro table looks so European.
