I have tea ware.
I have scads of tea ware
Mostly blue and white
And between the tea sets and the cups and saucers that go with my dinnerware
I can probably pour cups of tea for a small army and have some leftover.
But then I saw Wedgwood Bianca
(And I'm not sure why I saw Wedgwood Bianca),
how it happened to come on my radar, but
"that's pretty but I need no more tea cups and saucers"!
So even though I trolled E-bay and Replacements,
that was all I was doing -- just trolling!
Being very conservative and definitely being a
"I'm not buying any more china" person
And then I received this in the mail!
Look what is on the cover!
The lovely teapot
"Wow", I thought, it's even prettier than on the internet!
And then I thought . . . if it's on the cover, more people like me,
who covet it will end up buying it and if I don't buy it now,
there won't be any to buy . . . at least for a while!
And so I did
8 cups and saucers!
Don't you love the old fashioned ness of the deep saucers?
It's prettier in real life than it was on the computer!
I wonder how much Bianca was sold
because Tea Time Magazine put it on the cover?
And featured it in a story!
I still covet that tea pot
But it is pricey
And I don't need another teapot
But then, I didn't need another set of tea ware either!
It looks right at home in the cupboard
with my antique pink luster cups and saucers.
They are a similar shape and both sets have those deep saucers!
Keeping them company in that cabinet
is my Brown Betty!
How good would that Bianca teapot look in that spot?
