A Quick Tour of the China Cabinet

It's Monday night, and the football game just started.  I don't know who and I don't care who!
SO...computer, here I come!
How about a quick tour of the China Cabinet?

I seem to have a distinct liking for Blues and Pinks!!!
Good grief!  As I was picking the order for these pictures to post I realized that my faves are the blues and pinks, and that most of my cabinet is those colors!  Not all, but the majority!
Oh well.  I like it, and it's always fun to play with them!
I tried my first cup of Earl Grey tea over Thanksgiving.  No sweetener, no cream, no lemon.
Just plain ole' tea. 
Maybe it's an acquired taste??
I made another pot last week and tried it.  Not quite liking it yet, but I'm not going to give up.  I MUST learn to like even LOVE hot tea.  That's my New Year's resolution.  And loose weight.
Maybe I'll be able to drink tea.....

I will be linking up with the AWESOME TEA PARTIES listed on the sidebar!  Be sure and click on them to take you over to some lovely blogs and check out the gorgeous tea things they share each week.
Many thanks to you lovely ladies for hosting!
Hope you all have a lovely week!
Blessings, Doni

My husband's favorite tea was Earl Grey, but I don't even like the smell of it. Has bergamot...blech. I prefer Darjeeling, a much more pleasant taste in my mind and is the "champagne of tea". Or English breakfast tea. If you send me your address, I'll send you lots of different tea bags and you can try them out without having to buy whole boxes.♥♫

Hello Doni, thank you so much for taking us on a tour of your china cabinet. Yes, you do have lots of blues and pinks, but that is because they are so beautiful!
Btw, I too, do not like Earl Grey! It is flavored with Bergamot (the oil extracted from the rind of the Bergamot orange), and I do not like that taste. I drink herb teas, English Breakfast, and Orange Pekoe.

Your china cabinet is certainly filled with many lovely things.

Hi Doni...can't stand Earl Grey. Someone sent be a cream Earl Grey because it was Princess Diana's favorite...not much better. I LOVE what's in your china cabinet! Gorgeous and thanks for letting us peek. Rather do that than football ANY Monday night!

Hello Doni,
what a fun to go with you through your cup cabinet. Each is nicer than the next. The blue and whites are pretty and surely the others also. Thank your for this interesting tour. Wish you a lot of nice tea times with this beautiful collection.
Best greetings, Johanna

It was fun seeing your pretty teacups in your china cabinet. We have similar tastes.
I have one hutch cabinet in the kitchen with my blue and white cup collection, while in the dining room the corner cabinet features pink floral cups and dishes.
I always have Earl Grey on hand. It's one of my favorites.
Happy Holidays,

What lovely collection you have. Love the blue teacups.

Hi Dori, You have gorgeous cups/china! I like blue and white as well. Earl Grey is definitely an acquired taste. David's Tea sells a cream of Earl Grey that is a little milder - oh so good! Merry Christmas!

The blue cup and saucer is lovely. I have always thought that blue china is the prettiest.
