Confetti Rose

I went shopping several weeks ago with a dear friend.
She had to make a run to the Premium Outlets for some clothes for her son.
I went along for the ride figuring I needed some new undies.
One thing led to another (Kate Spade was having half off) and
I ventured into the Waterford outlet and came home with this
Rose Confetti teacup by Royal Albert.

What really led me into the store was this tea strainer that I saw from the window.
I had to have it!
Then I saw the teacup.

 Such a pretty light pink with the beautiful confetti roses on the inside.

I found the teapot at Homegoods.
It is by GRACE Teaware.

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea.

My thanks to our tea party hosts:

Darling!! Underwear??? When you found this beauty instead!! hee!! LOVE that strainer and the cup is delightful...looks so delicate and dainty especially paired with that tea pot.

(but I hope you did get some nice undies too -- I mean, you can wear old, stretched out baggy drawers whens sipping from something so elegant!! hee!).

Those are all gorgeous, especially the china tea strainer! So much more elegant than a metal one.

But why no photos of the half-price panties you bought, LOL?

Lorraine said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the tea strainer!!! So much more fun than undies ;)

Terri said...

You make me laugh : )
I hope you did find undies too! Lol!
The tea cup you brought home is very pretty! I love the flowers strewn all over the interior...so lovely! And your new tea strainer is really something! I have never seen one like that before.
What a pretty tea pot as well. The flowers on it are so delicate. Being white it will go with so many different cups too!

Good Afternoon Snap, How funny, I am the same, I head out to buy one thing and get diverted, then buy something else. Your Royal Albert tea cup and saucer is beautiful and I am in love with the tea strainer...perfect. Have a lovely day. Best Wishes Daphne

Hi Snap,
Sherry's comment made me smile a lot. We all tend always to the lovely things, don't we? What a pretty tea cup you found and the strainer is amazing as well. Makes a wonderful and elegant tea setting. I love the tea pot with the roses - so darling. I wish you a wonderful prechristmas time with lots of nice possibilities to enjoy those pretty finds.
Best greetings, Johanna

They all go together beautifully! I have loved the Royal Albert pattern. And I would have jumped on the strainer & teapot as well! Makes such a soft and lovely tea table. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

The teacup and pretty strainer are much more fun buys than undies!!! Woo hoo!!! Did you make the pretty quilted snowflake mat? I love it.

Janet said...

You have such a knack for finding great deals on teacups and tea pots. You must have quite a collection.

Betsy Adams said...

Gorgeous, Snap.... What a nice find!!! Soon though, you will need a bigger house for all of your beautiful collections!!!! ha

Oh everything about the tea strainer & the teapot are lovely. I don't have any tea strainers unless the metal tea-balls count, but I am thinking I need to buy myself one . :)
