Okay...you know I love Shelley China, England and this is no exception. This cup and saucer is in the Low Oleander shape with embossed leaf pattern and has a pattern called Hedgerow. It fairly shouts SPRING!!! I love it. This pattern isn't often seen on this shape, so I think it's quite special. It came home with me from a recent buying trip because it grabbed me from across a room.....romantic indeed!!!!
Ever thought of a spring tea party for your friends? Get out your favorite flower patterned cups and saucers (they don't have to match, just be pretty) and make some spring flowers in a vase, tea sandwiches, shortbread with jam and spend a lovely afternoon in chat and admiration of the season. How often we need to socialize and relax and miss out because of our schedules???!!!
