A gold chintz teacup

This week I'm sharing one of the vintage teacups in my collection.


I've always been drawn to gold chintz.

The Queen Anne backstamp (circa 1949+)

This teacup is the epitome of spring!

Five teas in April

I continue to sip down my teas one cup at a time!


1. Black Tea: 

Whittard of Chelsea's Piccadilly Blend is a lovely fruity tea with a light floral (rose) note.


2. Pu-Erh: 

Blue Mountain Tea Co.'s Up and at 'Em is a delicious blend of orange and vanilla.

3. Honeybush: 

Teamancy's Cranberry Head Crumble is a sweet and spicy blend that would also be perfect for fall!

4. Oolong: 

DavidsTea's Coconut Oolong is enjoyable as both hot and iced drinks.

5. Fruit infusion: 

DavidsTea's Coco Colada (cold-brewed) was a refreshing beverage. This tropical tea is the closest I'll get to a holiday these days!

T Party

Ms Taylor Alison Swift is one of my pandemic MVPs.

Her music has helped me get though the first wave (folklore), second wave (evermore), and  third wave (Fearless (Taylor's Version)).

Last Friday, I celebrated the release of Taylor's re-recording of her second album, Fearless (Taylor's Version), with a T party!


In my mug: DavidsTea's coconut oolong. I love coconut so I really enjoyed this fruity oolong. I even resteeped the leaves to make iced tea which was also delicious!

Me spotting this English bone china mug (Roy Kirkham) at HomeSense years ago: You belong with meeeeeeeeee! You belong with me.

Last month, I was scrolling through Instagram when my eagle eyes spotted a gold and cream teapot in the background of this post. 

I couldn't stop thinking about the teapot so the next day, I called the store to inquire about the teapot's condition and price. I expected the teapot to be $30 or more so when the proprietor told me that it was in good condition and $10.99 CDN, I was like, "SOLD!"

I adore the teapot's shape and elegant design--gold and cream with a rose! This vintage teapot was Made in England by Price and Kensington.

The back of the teapot featured a rosebud.

This gorgeous teapot was just the dopamine boost that I needed!
