Forget me not Tea Time

                                                              Hello everyone,
                                            I am sure you know that our garden is
                                            still banked with snow yet but my tea
                                            time today made me think of this
                                            photo of Audrey in our garden
                                            with the forget me not's behind
                                            her. I am really looking forward
                                            to seeing color in the garden again.
                           So, as you can see these dainty dishes are covered in
                            delicate forget me not's.

                                     Pecan butterballs are a light tea time snack.

                   I actually remembered to include a photo of the markings on the bottom~
                   for those of you who are interested. They are called "Sound of Music".
             With the prediction of a late spring here, I guess we can forget about
                       getting out there and digging in the dirt for awhile yet but in the mean
                       time......enjoy the "Sound of Music" !

                         I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.

                                                                   Thank you for visiting,

Oh Carolyn it's lovely! That's a pattern I've never seen, and what a pretty pattern! What's better than blue and white!

Lovely Carolyn. Yes it is going to many week before we can be out digging the garden:( Take care and have an enjoyable evening. Jen

Such a pretty pattern, Carolyn. I love that it is a small floral.

Erin said...

I bought some lettuce seed and peas in high hopes of playing in the dirt soon. I might have to move some snow out of the way first! Beautiful dishes and forget me nots!! I would love setting a table with forget me nots in a vase and those lovely dishes!

Susan said...

What a perfect name for the china, Carolyn----The Sound of Music.

That pattern of sweet and delicate forget-me-nots is enough to make anyone sing! So lovely.

And seeing the statue again makes me yearn to find more sculptures! Thanks for the photos. Susan

Your post is true perfection. So sweet and timeless. Love the china.


Sarah said...

Carolyn, your tea set is delightful. It makes for a lovely reminder of beautiful spring days to come. I think we all need that this winter. '-)

Your set is lovely. Isn't it great how our china can transport us to another time and place!

I am wondering about that part of your garden which has a mirror behind one of your lovely ladies...do you place that mirror indoors or in storage during winter? I think often about that special part of your garden and how serene it must feel...Love your garden photos! Very inspirational!

I guess it will be several weeks before any of us will be digging in the garden here in Canada. I was hoping for an early Spring but it will come eventually. It always does. Could be there are hidden blessings in our late Spring that we don't know about yet. Your china is really sweet and I love the name of the pattern, Sound of Music! Thank you for joining me for tea and have a beautiful day, Carolyn.


Terri said...

Love the china and absolute ANY blue flower ;)

Such lovely china. We have been blessed with an "Indian Spring" of late. It has been chilly in the mornings but in the upper 50's and lower sixties by afternoon. I am loving it...our winter was harsh but thankfully we are getting a little respite.

Beautiful - I would love to have the china. Blue is my favorite. :-)

Linda said...

Hi Carolyn,
We're just buried here! At this rate, it will be a lonnng time before we see our garden again.
LOVE that white jug with the daisies in it. And, I like the pairing of the cup with the wheat saucer.
QUESTION: What kind of flowers do squirrels give each other? ANSWER: Forget-me-nuts! Haha
Couldn't resist...

That china is lovely! I am dreaming of flowers and peaking everyday to get a look at my crocus. There not up yet. Many years they have already bloomed. Thanks for the lovely view today!

Régine R said...

This is lovely ! C'est très beau Carolyn, j'ai toujours grand plaisir à venir lire vos articles.

Good morning
What a beautiful china, and all the photos looks amazing. Have a wonderful day.

WendyBee said...

Oh, the sun is beaming on us today, and maybe some of the snow will melt away. But I heard the word "Nor'Easter" in the forecast for next week.
That china is lovely -- I've never seen a "Myott's" pattern that wasn't adorable.
Hag in there, spring will find us!

Jen Ham said...

Such BEAUTIFUL tea dishes! So dreamy! xoxo Jen

The pink teapot and cup and heart-shaped dish that you used for you February 10 posting--I think you called it Delicate Pink Tea--is all just so lovely.

Do you mind telling me the pattern name and maker of the teapot and cup and the heart-shaped dish? I would so enjoy starting this collection.

Thank you,


Carolyn said...

Hi DebraAnn,
I am sorry but there are no markings on the teapot or the heart shaped dish.The tea cup is a Shelley ~ Stocks 13428 made in England.
Thank you for your visit!

Oh, Carolyn! Forget-me-nots are one of my very favorite flowers but I have never ever been able to grow them! (Partly because I buy packet after packet every year but never throw the seeds out there. =/) I've bought seeds for this year, though, and am ready!!! So I just love this post!! =)

Jaybird said...

I am catching up on the last few weeks of your postings and found this! I am smiling because just this morning, I put two of these tea cups on my kitchen shelf, with a little birdie nest in them.....yes, even in Texas we are looking forward to warmer weather. It was nice over the weekend, but cold again today.
Blessings to you,
