High Tea

I do like to collect the odd bit of vintage crockery or china. Mostly dinner plates and bowls, the sort of thing i can use on a daily basis.  I dont like hoarding lots of stuff i dont use but i do have a little cabinet that houses my small collection of mismatched vintage teacups.  They have no sentimental value or significance they are just something i like and  have picked up at opp shops or flea markets for a couple of dollars each.  So when Shay from Quilting in my Pyjamas suggested a high tea using all our lovely china and linens that we keep for 'good' and never use  i jumped on board, what a fun way to have morning tea!

There is something lovely in a pot of tea, the relaxed, unhurried version of it.  
and sipping from pretty dainty teacups makes the experience a whole lot better...

dont forget to poke your pinky out...

cupcake anyone?

These are the plates we use everyday, theyre too pretty to keep hidden away dont you think?

This is my favourite little plate, colourful daisies...  

Great idea Shay, i will definitely make a point of using the 'good' china more regularly!
 (just need to learn how to bake some scones!)
