Tea with Friends - Vintage Treasures

I attended a Victorian Christmas at an antique barn last weekend and it was heaven with two floors chalk full of vintage treasures.  Join me for tea today as I share a couple of things I bought.
Always on the lookout for a pretty cup and saucer, I felt lucky to find this one.




A delicate pink Limoges trimmed with gold, a perfect complement for my pink tablecloth and poinsettia napkin spread out in the centre.


These luncheon napkins with the lavender trim must have been waiting for me to claim them.  The barn has many vendors selling their antiques and I have bought linens from this lady before.  Hers are always in pristine condition, washed and ironed and ready for a new home.


The kettle is whistling on the stove and I'm serving ginger-peach herbal tea today.  Make yourself comfortable as we visit Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, our weekly host for Tea Time Tuesday.
I'm also linking with Kathy from A Delightsome Life as she celebrates Victoria, a passion for Victorian decor and a way of life.

  1. Hello,
    congratulation to this wonderful finds. The teacup ist just charming and the napkins with the LAVENDER trim are a wonderful addition. And because they are in lavender, they are supposed to be yours, aren't they? Thank you for sharing.
    Greetings, Johanna

  12. Judith! How lovely, yes they must go home with you! I was shopping with my daughter - found some delicious things - I looked at her and she said - you KNOW you can't leave those here! What a girl! I am sure you were in Bliss while shopping! Thank you for sharing and joining A Return to Loveliness!

  13. Your Limoges cup and saucer is so delicate and lovely. I really like how you composed your last photo. There are so many interesting elements: the blue through the window, the greenery, the tea cup, the gold poinsettia and the stacked linens. Very artistic and really just a gorgeous photo! Nicely done, Judith!
    Hugs, Beth
