A Valentine Tea

Welcome February.
Valentine Day is on the 14th.
I am having a Valentine Tea,
 on this cold Winter's day.
The days are getting longer 
with more hours of daylight and 
it's nice to see the sunshine.
Thankfully, February is a shorter month.

2 Sadler teapots. I don't want to run out of tea. LOL

china cups and saucers

Cherry loaf and shortbread cookies

Royal Albert cup and saucer
Royal Albert is named after Prince Albert, 
Queen Victoria's Consort (Husband).

Bell China ~ England

Queen Anne cup and Myott saucer.

A scene from Niagara Falls
US Zone.

" My love for you is ever true"
on the little lamp.

I found this pretty vintage pitcher 
a few weeks ago at a Thrift Shop.
Alfred Meagan ~ England.

After doing some research on the internet, I found some interesting intonation.
Alfred Meakin in Tintern pattern. circa 1930. 
Tintern is a village in Wales, Great Britain,
and the scene on this pitcher is from an Abbey.
The red transferware pitcher has an elaborate pastoral scene of a pond, with farm building, a shepherd and his flock of sheep with Tintern Abbey (Wales) and mountains in the background.

 Classic Cherry Loaf

Shortbread Hearts

My Sister Annie made this Valentine Banner.

I'm always intrigued by markings under china dishes.

Happy Valentines Day!
