"Ooh, Ooh, Ooh..." that's what I said as I saw one after the other. Makes me want to bake mini cupcakes and scones and other sugary goodness :)
Darn slave drivers that you work for!!! Don't they know you have a blog to run??? xx

pinkapplecore said...

that's an interesting picture, and those plates are so pretty, it's great they reuse old ones too that just adds to it.

Lara said...

ha ha...afternoon tea...I love that first photo.

Vivi said...

These are charming and lovely and brilliant - deserving of all those great English-y adjectives!

Clorivak said...

Fill them up...I am so bad with sweets...I could literally mow them all off those gorgeous plates. sweets don't really fill me up. I try to not buy them at the grocery store and make them too much cause I would be the one eating them all. I would be the type of older lady trying to give them away to neighbors and such, but then people might think I'm a creepster...bahaha,much coffee for me. Have a great day!!

Pollyanna (formerly the Laughing Idiot) said...

These are so nifty! I love having unusual serving pieces. A little out of my price range, but I wonder if a little DIY project is in my future. Hmmmmm. . .

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Gigi said...

What fun! I love these, and the first photo made me giggle! You're a doll. xoxo

amy @ switz~art said...

super cool! looove the first pic...that's me after a pot of tea! LOL!

busy schedules are a bitch, but remember to....breathe! good luck!

The Haute-Shopper said...

So pretty! I've always wanted to introduce tea-times as a regular thing at home or in the office... yeah not happening. But there's nothing nicer than having tea out of a charming set, along with cucumber sandwiches and scones placed on those cake stands... sigh. Oh, and the first pic is awesome - it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland meets Wizard of Oz (i.e. a tea pot falling out of the sky and squashing you).

Elizabeth Marie said...

Ohhh tea time...fabulous darling! I want a cute set!

Smitten Sugar said...
