Hello, dear friends!! Welcome to our "Tea Time on Tuesday" and "Vintage Alphabet Party"

What is it about handpainted china. . .
that makes my heart skip a beat. . .

makes me smile from head to toe?

I so admire those who can paint these lovely pieces, don't you?

I am sharing with you today, sweet friends, some of my favorite pieces. . .plates, cups, saucers, tea caddy, tea strainer and

tea trivet. I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of my favorite things around "Bunny Cottage".

For the Vintage Alphabet Party, our letters are "N" and "O". For "N" I am sharing vintage needlework, a favorite southern belle linen. I think the needlework on this piece is extraordinary.

And for "O" some old garden roses from my garden. These roses are called "La Marne". Please visit those who are participating in our tea time by going here to see our wonderful hostesses: Martha @ Sandi @ and Terri @ For those participating in the etsy cottage style vintage alphabet party, please visit here:
Have a lovely week and may God bless each and every one of you always!!

Hi Vicki...Oh, I love the pionk and the roses...very romantic...and reminds me of the Anne of Green Gables movies for some reason..which I love...I love these beautiful examples of handpainted china...because to me...the everyday things deserve to be made beautiful...and this is perfect!!! Plus I love the beautiful charm it adds to any home :) :) Oh, you should check out Amy over at Vintage Porcelain Art. There's a link to her blog on my right sidebar.
