Birds & Nest Cup and Saucer & tea source

I just added this gorgeous vintage 1920-1930s cup and saucer by Cartwright & Edwards, Victoria. I just LOVED the hand applied enamel paint on the black transfer of birds and a nest. The cup and saucer is in mint condition. Just fabulous! Wish I had more room to add to my teacup collection, but no go. I had to have it when I spotted it in England last buying trip.

I just had a great experience with an online source for English tea. We LOVE TyPhoo English black tea but always have difficulty finding local sources. When the family come to visit from England, there are usually boxes of TyPhoo in their luggage. So...I am always looking for a good online source and found one. was great. I bought a large box online at a good price, paid with my credit card and they were shipped the next day and the tracking number says they will arrive today...3 days later. Brilliant!!! They have all sorts of different tea, so I'm a happy camper and looking forward to my next cuppa!!!

It's a beautiful Pacific Northwest day here in Sequim today...clouds, a few showers with lots of sun and in the 60s. Hope it's nice where you are! Let me know any good tea sources you have!

The oak tea caddy with the porcelain lining and EPNS silver plated fittings above was just added from my downsizing personal collection. The tea caddy has the most touching hand engraved message To My Old Pal Sid, And Vera From Wilf 1930. I just love it! Evokes dart players at the pub who play and drink their Guiness together and Sid is getting married so Wilf gives him a tea caddy. It is too cool!!!

Tea caddies were a regular part of every English household (we still are using 3 at the moment) and were as exxential as the American coffee maker. Their styles changed through the years and tell a history of the people and the culture of the country. Great collectibles and still very affordable.
