Tuesday Tea, Royal Albert, Polka Rose

It has been a while since I have shared the tea accoutrement with you and since it is Tuesday I have a very 

special-to-me set. Secured in her own hatbox, this set is very fine. So far she has not seen actual use. Soon.

Since I take pictures but I am not a photographer please forgive the amateurish presentation. I have always liked a table by a window this ended up being the best place to capture the light to best represent the very pale blue/mint green color of the set. Charming.
 Can you see the little white polka dots? I am a girl who loves her dots. How sweet is this? I know, I know, I hear the comments...."how many teapots does this woman really need?" Well maybe a couple more  now that you ask! Te-He :)
