Lilacs In A Teapot

The Lilacs are blooming.
It smells so good here.
I picked some lilacs to bring inside,
and used an old teapot for a vase.

I added other Spring china 
to my vignette theme.

Maytime Apple Blossoms ~ Shelley creamer and sugar.


Wild violets on this cup and saucer. 

Pretty saucer.

Markings on the bottom
 of the cup and saucer.

Teapot Lid.

There are no marking on this teapot.
Gorgeous, Victorian style.

This teapot belonged to St. Anne Church
 and has been used a lot over
 the years serving tea at a church functions.
The spout got broken and it was put in
a rummage sale. 
I bought it to use as a vase.
If it is turned as below,
the broken spout does not show.

Thanks for your visit xo.

Lily Of The Valley

One of my favorite scents is
 Lily Of The Valley.
It's also my birth month flower,  in May.
I was happy to find some growing 
in my woodland garden last year.

I picked a few to enjoy their lovely scent.

A sweet fragrance

Some Forget-Me-Nots mixed with it.

I brought some inside to enjoy,

mixed with English chinaware.

The miniature Sadler teapot
was a birthday gift from my sister Joyce,
a few years ago.


The saucers are pretty also.

I'm always intrigued by the marking beneath the china.

Royal Taunton

 The small creamer.

How fortunate am I to be born in the month of May
and have Lily Of The Valley as the flower of the month.
My daughter, Suzanne was born in the month of May also.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 
Lily Of The Valley 
in her wedding bouquet,
as with most of the Royal wedding brides.

Thanks for your visit.
We're having Summer weather here.
Happy Summer.
