It is lilac time here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and while we were at the farm cottage I set up a little tea in front of our bank of purple lilacs to share with you.
My dear daughter-in-law gave me the cute tea cart recently and I found the tea set at a thrift store a while ago.
The tea set is marked Japan. I need to scale down on my tea pretties and told myself to only buy made in England china, but I couldn't resist the set for only $5.99!
I love the tiny raised flowers on the teapot, along with the pretty birds. I thought they might be blue birds, but my hubby says they are swallows! What do you think?
Lots of lilacs again this year! Plenty to give away and keep in the cottage for their beauty and fragrance.
There are three different designs on the teacups. I love the patterns!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hoping you have a wonderful month of June!
I will be joining Bernideen for her 100th Tea In The Garden Party. Congratulations Bernideen! I always enjoy her beautiful outdoor tea settings!
I also will be joining these lovely parties: No Place Like Home, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Teacup Tuesday.
