Pretty In Pink Tea

It is finally April, and that called for a little bit of color. I picked up a bouquet of miniature roses at the market yesterday as well as some strawberry drizzle cookies. Then I looked for some spring-like tea ware in my collection.

I grabbed a teapot I haven’t used yet. It was my late mother’s. I believe it was actually the vase of a bouquet I ordered for her for Mother’s Day many years ago. She kept it on display on her buffet cabinet in her apartment in New York. I carefully wrapped it up and brought it to Maine with me after she passed away. The teapot is very large, but it poured beautifully and I thought of mom the entire time.

The plate under the cookies is one whose history I do not know. It appeared in our cupboard and it’s oddly discolored…at least I THINK it is, but it has lovely, colorful flowers on it. I did a search online for the stamp on the back, but nothing matching this pattern came up.

The tiny teacup & saucer is one I bought in an antique store many moons ago here in Maine. It was made in Finland by Arabia. After a long search online, I wasn’t able to match this pattern either. It may be very old or discontinued, but it has lovely flowers on it as well.

I tried a new tea today from my order with Trail Lodge Tea in St. Louis. Today’s blend is Smokey Mountain. This is a wonderful Keemun and Yunnan black tea and was a nice balance with the sweet cookies. I LOVE this blend and I think a 2nd order will be coming up soon. Again, their teas are Fair Trade CertifiedTM Organic.

Although there is still snow on the ground here, I can feel spring is close by. I’m anxiously waiting my first tea outside this year. Until then, I make a little spring inside when I can. Enjoy!

  1. Happy Spring, Heidi! Enjoyed the memories of your Mom and the pink florals. If you haven’t already checked Replacements, Ltd online for those patterns, they may know and even have some pieces of it. Just send them a picture. It may take them a few days, but they will respond. I am heading up to Smethport early May for a few days. Hope you have the last of your snow and can settle into the pretty colors of springtime. Love and hugs to you.
