breakfast x

They say breakfast sets you up for the day, I never used to have breakfast when I was teenager, but now I love it!!! I have a large collection of china cups, tea-pots, and plates...as well as cakestands, gravy boats, cake plates , cheese dishes...it goes on and on. I love choosing what cup and saucer I am going to use for the day. And although my mother says I am barmy as its too much washing up, I take great delight in my breakfast tray. Although I have lots of matching tea sets, I adore mixing and matching..............here is my breakfast tray from today....a Royal Albert vintage florals Lilac cup, a Royal Grafton side plate, a Lord Nelson tea pot,Crown Regent milk jug, ironstone bowl and a Colclough sugar bowl....and I love it all!!!!! What a way to start the day!!!! Tea tastes different from a tea pot and a bone china cup!!!!
I make any visitors to my house their own breakfast tray and they all love it!! When I mention to visitors that we are having sandwiches for tea, they don't look too impressed, but when I wheel out a complete high tea, with tea pots, china cups, sandwich plates,(all sandwiches must be cut into quarter triangles), side plates, cake stands with cakes and scones and jam and clotted cream....their eyes usually light up with amazement and delight!!!! x x x x x x x x x


  1. Thank you for following my blog ... so delighted to have found yours!! I am drooling over your vintage. I adore your china (especially the roses and gold) - I have that green set but in pink.
    I am also on the look out for a vintage dress (1950's) for weeks to wear on my stall but they are either too small or go for a fortune on eBay.
