Springtime Table

The table is set with my collection of Royal Staffordshire
Springtime English Bone China teacup trios.
I have posted about these pretty dishes several times.
My mother had this prettyvintage trio on display on her china hutch
as long as I can remember.I don't recall her using it.
 It was a "treasure" for her to enjoy because it was so pretty. 
When I inherited her trio, I began collecting one piece at a time
until I know have nine teacup trios.
They set a pretty table and serve as a reminder of my mother. 
For this table setting, I am using the four vintage teapot napkin rings
I purchased for $3 at a thrift shop in Florida,
and vintage pink damask napkins from a shop in Cookeville, TN.
The teapot is vintage Sadler.  
I invite you to join me for a nice cup of tea this week.

Just beautiful, Linda! Your mother had such a beautiful china pattern. I'm glad that you chose to add to it and that you are using it. Everything looks so pretty and the Sadler teapot goes with it so well. Happy Easter week!

Your Royal Staffordshire chintz is gorgeous! And how special that it all began with your mother's trio.
It sets such a "springy" tea table!
I love it!

Your pink Sadler teapot looks just perfect with your mother's Royal Staffordshire teacups. Your tables always look so beautiful, I wish I could come for tea. Why are all my tea loving blog friends so far away?

I love it all but especially that Sadler teapot!!! Beautiful! I think their "unexpected" patterns are divine! I hope you will link to Friends Sharing Tea!

What a pretty springtime table! The trios are beautiful and that teapot - ooh la la, it's just perfect! Glad you shared it with us. It has been snowing in the N GA mountains all day today and spring seems a long way away.

Dear Linda,
It is very special to have a collection like that started by your mama and continued by you. I have one set of that pattern too. Sweet little butterly amidst the flowers...
I really love your Sadler teapot. What a joy!

Your mother's trio is just beautiful. My eyes immediately went to the pink teapot. I just love Sadler and a soft pink is wonderful.

Just the right amount of soft pinks and flowers. So nice to added to your mother's pattern. A very sweet tea table scape in every detail.
