Pretty Things


This pretty teacup is from The Twiggery which was featured in the April issue of Victoria Magazine which has only just arrived at my newsagents here in Sydney. The article led to to their site where I found the snowman teacup.

Also featured was this delightful pastry stand.


Sigh. Life should be filled with beautiful things.

  5. I love the little snowman teacup.
    That looks like spinach quiche on the cake stand. You are making me hungry.

  8. I love them both Ann. I love birds so the stand would be so much fun.
    I am big fan of Victoria magazine too. Have some of the originals from way back. I could never throw them away.
    Enjoy your treasures.

  9. Wow Ann what a beautiful cake stand. I've never seen anything like it before. Thanks for those kind words, I love my porch, I hope our next home will have one. I Know I will miss it.We have a lot of great memories here. But it is time to find our retirement home before we find that we are too old to take care of what we have.

  10. I have always liked dainty tea cups, perhaps it is having tea with my grandma that inspired.

    I haven't seen a snowman tea cup before, and it is very quaint, as well as the cake stand.
