...I {Heart} Vintage China ...

... What is it about vintage china that inspires beautiful memories of days gone by?...


If you are like me, you can trace it back to a treasured Grandmother, English in my case,
who baked pretty little "fairy cakes' and got out her Shelley "Wildflowers" tea set for
little girls' afternoon tea parties....


Nana, look what you started ....


Our China Room at The Vintage China Company ...
to date over 150 vintage English china trios
... and still growing ...


Teapots, sugar bowls, creamers, cake plates and cake stands

... also quintessiantially English floral ...


This week's display table is a "blue" table, featuring Old Foley "Broadway" and and a Tuscan setting which does not have a pattern name but is absolutely beautiful ...

... I am searching for the teapots to both sets ... Love the Hunt :)))

Our Gentleman Bunny tops off each table ... this week his little knapsack is filled with cornflowers to match our blue theme ...


Last week's table was a pastel floral theme ... featuring quite a bit of pink
... what a surprise :)))))
The centrepiece was orchids ...


... A touch of Royal Albert ...


... And the lady who started it all ... my Nana, Agnes,
who is with me every time I pick up a piece of vintage china ...
In front of the photo is her very special Shelley "Wildflowers" trio ...
... Thank you Nana ...
