June Tea Cart

 One of my tea carts is decorated for the month of June with
trios of Duchess English Bone China.  The pattern is June Bouquet.

I purchased these four trios at a china shop in Stratford-upon-Avon in 2002,
and carried them home in a small roll-aboard bag I bought in a luggage shop nearby.
I used a vintage Sadler teapot and an Ansley small open sugar bowl
and milk jug to complete my tea set.
 Below is a photo of Austin, Glenn and me having tea in a
Stratford tea room near the china shop.
 The photo above is in a framed collage of 2003 and 2004
photos of teas in England.  It hangs above this tea cart.
