White tea set with a surprise....

Today I am sharing with everyone a lovely, lovely tea set that I purchased from Don Swanson, a Tucson artist, just before we moved last month.  AND I do mean the day before we left Arizona!   A couple of friends and myself headed to Tucson for last minute shopping!
What can I say???
Enjoy...


Now for the surprise...when you open the lid of the tea pot this is what you see...


and on the bottom of each tea cup, creamer and sugar this is what you see...


I love my white rose tea set!!

I am linking up with White Wednesday at Faded Charm and Rednesday at It's A Very Cherry World.  Please visit these great blogs for delightful showings of white and red.

Oh Ann ~ how lovely and the surprise is just too darn cute!! So happy you came to visit ~ pour me a cup of tea, I am staying for a while to catch up!

I am so glad they made it unscathed! We had such fun. I will be sure to tell Don hello for you the next time I see him. He is probably already feeling the pain of you not being here! have you found the perfect spot to show off this lovely tea set? I hope it is prominately displayed, so you smile each time you see it. I know I do, when I use that mug I bought.

Wow! Special indeed. I just love the curves and the color tones, it's very elegant.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

That is one of the very best teapots I have ever seen. What a treasure! I even said "Wow," out loud as I was reading this. Hubs wanted to know why, I said, "I just don't think you'd understand." :D

Neabear said...

Thank you for visiting me the other day! I love your teapot!! How cool the inside is painted. I browsed back a few posts and wanted to tell you I love the hutch. So pretty. I would stop and admire that too, hoping it would give me energy to keep going. How is the unpacking going? I hope you are further along.
