Spring Tea

A buddy of mine kidnapped me one day and we went shopping.
We went to lunch, hit Michaels and since Ross was in the same strip shopping 
we decided to drop in.

Easter Tea

I came home with the rabbit and the tea cup.

Flower Tea Cup

The bottom of the cup says:
Fine China
Dishwasher Safe
Made in China.

I love the butterflies and hummingbirds and all the lovely flowers.
The gold edge.

Easter Tea

Perfect to get me into the mood for Spring and Easter.
I love bunnies!

Tuesday is Tea Day.
These are just a few of the tea parties to visit.

Wishing you well and a wonderful cup of tea!

oh how beautiful to sip tea in that delightfully spring designed cup and saucer!! You'll feel just like the Queen!!

I always enjoy your tea posts - in fact I've even got a draft post in the wings that starts off 'my friend Snap at Twisty Lane says....' and goes on to talk about your tea posts. One day I'll dust it off and tweak it and put it out there. In the meantime I'll think about you sipping something fragrant from that springtime teacup.

Beautiful cup and saucer, reminiscent of something older. Nice find! I think Easter will be kind to us this year, no hunting Easter eggs in the snow?

How lovely. I love dropping in to Ross. It is such a good place to find things out of their usual element, so to speak, so they stand out more. Thank you for sharing.

Such a beautiful teacup and I just love that bunny. I don't think I would've resisted not buying him also! The teacup has a lovely Spring feeling to it, and I love hummingbirds and butterflies pattern lovely crisp pastel Spring colours! Charming! yvette@twistedvines

This teacup is absolutely cheerful ! Thank you for your visit . I am so sorry to hear about your lost; It's devastating , but it's not going to get easy ... I think ,each lost teaches us simply how to leave our lives with it !

Hi Snap,
Oh, your bunny is so cute! The teacup is very pretty and I would have picked it up too had I seen it! Sounds like a very fun outing you had. Thanks for joining me for tea today and have a wonderful week.
