A spin through a local second hand shop that I've never visited before yielded this beautiful rose teacup and saucer. I was thrilled to find another Paragon design with roses.
So naturally it needs to be enjoyed near the only live roses on the premises. A miniature pot from the grocery store having a second bloom. (Don't ask me how I managed that!)
I came across some dainty worked linen napkins to go with it. They belong to a matching tea cloth also done in applique, but I wanted this one with the soft pink bands today. The last day of April!
The cup and saucer were found together, but I'm thinking they may not be a pair because of the marks. What do you think?
The cup mark.
The saucer mark. Maybe you can see a very pale wash of pink on the saucer.
I'm doing a mix and match with napkins too. I found these three small embroidered napkins too darling to resist. So sweet. It all makes for a cheery patio tea!
It was 85 degrees in Albuquerque today! Makes it hard to get any serious work done. All I wanted to do was play. I'm thinking a lot about picnics. . . .
A sweet goodbye to April until next year.
We're all ready for May!
