Would You Like Some Cream With Your Tea?

I was expecting my youngest son when I purchased these ceramic cows.
That was over 21 years ago!!!
I just couldn't resist them. I had this thing for Holsteins when I was in college, and I've always loved cows anyway, so when I saw them, well, it was a done deal!

The teacups, creamer and sugar bowl were a recent find at a yard sale down the road from us.

That's another thing I can't resist...china. Especially PRETTY china!
The mark on the bottom is from Poland. So hard for me to get a good shot with my little ol' camera! Sorry! I usually just forget to get the bottom!!
I'm joining in with all the lovely ladies below for Tuesday Teas!
Please look at each one and join in with us for a fabulous Tea Party Tuesday!!

I like your pretty new tea things and the cows.
It must have been a phase back then because I have some holstein items too that I just can't part with.

Doni...those china tea cups etc...are beautiful. I have a thing for roses...but even more so since I started participating in all of these fun tea events on Tuesdays...I think that's great you were able to find all of those items at a yard sale!!! I'll have to keep my eye out for more items like that!!!

Oh, the cows are fun too..I saw a photo of a Dutch Belted cow once...those made me laugh because they have this huge stripe of white around the middle. It looks almost like they're wearing corsets!!!...but lovely all the same :) :) Have a great week!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

p.s. I use the "flower" button on my camera when I take pictures of the backsgtamps on my tea things...most of the time it works well. I have more trouble with getting the right lighting!!!

I love the soulful look of cows! My father-in-law raises a few - I have a great respect for their strength!
Beautiful teacup, creamer and sugar bowl!
I hope you have a Delightsome day,

Your tea set from Poland is lovely. I really like the pretty pink roses and the pedestle base of the cups. I have a Polish teapot, but it is in the heavy blue and white pottery.

Doni, your tea things from Poland are lovely! I like the cows too! I've never collected them myself even though I've been drawn to them. I can't collect everything otherwise hubby would have to move out. Thanks for sharing and wishing you a happy week.



How charming your cows are. Those gals look great for there age:)
Love your sweet and precious little teacups.. what a great find.

A Hopeful Heart said...

Your tea set is lovely. It astounds me the things you can get at garage sales. I mean, why on earth would someone want to get rid of something as beautiful as that?!!

I discovered a gorgeous Royal Albert teacup last week. They were selling it for $1, simply because the saucer was broken in two pieces. Well, that's nothing that a bit of glue couldn't take care of, and now, for only a dollar, I have another gorgeous teacup.

Blessings to you,
