Jump Start





I'm getting a jump start on St. Patrick's Day with 
Irish Breakfast Tea in a rose decorated depression glass cup and saucer.


St. Patrick's Day Tea

The card on the inside says "is Irish for I love you".
Too cute! 
The white hobnail vase is home to some mini-hydrangeas. 


St. Patrick's Day Tea


Wishing YOU well and much joy.

A big thank you to our tea party hosts:

I'm so in love with Depression glass, I've loved the pink ever since I first viewed some, but this green is exquisite! Your setting for tea is deserving of being framed. I'd hang it on the wall next to the kitchen table to be enjoyed every day!

Lovely Depression glass cup of tea. I have a few plates, but no tea cups. Do you collect only green or do you collect all Depression glass colors?

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Simple, yet elegant Snap. I'll have to see if I have any Irish breakfast tea left in my stash of canisters.

So pretty, Snap! I keep meeting people from Houston on the ski lift (here on spring break). I think of you!

Gorgeous hydrangeas and vase. My mama called the depression glass "carnival glass." It was given away as door prizes at the movies and also came packed inside oatmeal boxes. We had many pieces of this stuff when I was a kid; sorrowfully, not a piece left.

Milk glass, aw, it's been a long time since I have seen any....such a pretty setting. xox

Martha said...

I think it's lovely -- love all of your green and white!
