I'm sure that most of you are familiar with their line of gorgeous bedding and home décor.
This week I seemed to find quite a few cottage style items so I thought, "Why not use them in a Valentines tea?".
Yesterday was a gorgeous day. The afternoon sun was streaming through my living room window. Perfect setting for tea!
And all the better that my sofa has a Laura Ashley kind of feel.
Friday I found four of these pretty plates by Homer Laughlin at our local thrift for $1.50 each.
Saturday I attended a vintage sale and fell head over heels in love with this chippy pink grate. I also scored a white one. Fun way to display my pretty plates.
I also picked up these gorgeous flowers in one of the booths. The blush pink made my heart swoon!
What could be better than a little tea and conversation?
An exclusive tea, Empress Afternoon Blend.
I bought a box years ago when friends and I attended High Tea at the Empress hotel in Victoria, Canada. What a fun trip!
I found this cup recently for $6. Another thrift find.
I love how my IKEA throw drapes on the floor.
I decided that this thrift find teapot would work perfectly with the dishes. It pulls out the pink and lavender shades.
A couple years ago I paid $10 for it and didn't notice until I got home that the little handle of the teapot on top was broken off. I twisted a piece of lavender ribbon and added a rose.
I love the sweet scent of Stock.
I scored these two beauties the same day as the Homer Laughlin plates for $.75 cents each.
Although not the same color, they resemble the roses in my sofa.
Saturday evening my hubby brought in a package that the mailman had left in the driveway.
It was my darling give away win from Kris at Junk Chic Cottage.
I don't know if you can really call it a win. lol! You need to hop over to the link to know what I am talking about. It all has to do with that sweet #7!
Anyway I love it! The pretty heart is a lavender sachet.
A big thank you to darling Kris!
She also sent a sweet vintage Valentine and notepad.
I'm leaving you with these 4 beauties that I found a couple weeks ago at a thrift shop in Pocatello, ID.
Hadn't had a chance to share them on my blog and they definitely have a cottage feel! Each one set me back $3. I'll never pass up a bargain like that!
Too many plates waiting for tea time. lol!
Wishing you a week full of love and roses!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
