Shelley "Rosebud" Teacup Trio+

This is my new Shelley "Rosebud" Teacup Trio plus an extra plate.
I'm sharing rosebuds today as we are nearing the end of February
because it is the traditional month or gentlemen to gift their ladies with pretty roses.  

There were no fresh roses for me for Valentine's Day 
because I am allergic to them. 
Instead, I received roses in the form of Shelley china!  
I would much rather have these roses in my house to enjoy
than to have fresh roses with my eyes watering and my nose itching! 
In case you are wondering, 
weddings and funerals send me into a big allergy attack. 
And, rose hips in herbal teas causes a respiratory reaction. 

OK, there you go Angela.  
The real reason I am picky about 
my tea choices.

Roses on teacups are great when you can't have the real ones! Very pretty.

I am in the same boat...no flowers because of allergies...but there is always flowers on china...and what better than Shelley!

Your Shelley Rosebud trio is lovely, Linda. I'm not allergic to roses, but if given a choice, I'd take a Shelley trio over a bouquet of fresh roses any day!

Sorry to hear about your allergies. Maybe you can enjoy some nice looking fake flowers. But, the roses you received are so very special and can be enjoyed for so much longer.

It is a beautiful set. Sorry you are allergic to roses. I would be so sad not to have them in my house throughout the summer. Yes, do avoid them in tea. I don't like them much in tea either and I am not allergic.

Ahhhh, so now I know! Definitely don't want you suffering from your tea selections. (And I totally agree with you about preferring roses in the form of china!)
