Teacup Thursday

This little collection hangs in the powder room of the tea room.The 'Old Royal, Bone China, England' tea cup, with petite pink roses, rosebuds, and mossy green leaves is decorated for Valentines Day with a vintage hankie.I once attended an Afternoon Tea at a local tea room, (sadly now closed) where the napkins were delicate hankies tucked into the handle such as is shown here. It was a different take, not only for the use of the hankie, but for the location of the napkin. It was a clever, fun and unique idea.

I do remember visiting your powder room and enjoying seeing all the fun things there. Love the hankie idea. I have also seen hankie's sewn together to make a table runner.
