First (vintage) teacup of 2024!

A few weeks ago, we received a package from my aunt in British Columbia.


I was delighted to receive this vintage bone china teacup with a beautiful floral design.


The Regency backstamp, circa 1950s.


My aunt also sent this pretty Past Times "Trembly Rose" bone china plate that was made in England too.


A perfect trio!

Tea-related Christmas gifts

My family and friends once again spoiled me on Christmas with tea-related gifts.

"You & Me and a cup of tea" ornament for my tea-themed tree.

A new mug...

...that will be filled with the new teabags and loose leaf teas that I received.

I was also surprised by this package of Harney & Sons teas from one of my teacup swap partners. Thank you, Teresa!

How cute is this tetsubin (cast iron) teapot?

 A pretty "Tea Time" puzzle.

Last but not the least: A teapot lego set!
