Tea Time

About twenty years ago this tea set was an anniversary gift from my hubby. It is called Old English Melon.

We rarely ever use it but it is so lovely to look at. He arranged it last week with some of my red transfer ware. We are always moving things around.

I love brown transfer ware too but red is my favorite.

This is my favorite pattern. It is called Colonial Times and depicts scenes of colonists and Indians.
