October Pink Tea Cart

This entire month Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage has had a Pink theme for Breast Cancer awareness,

So this week I'm joining her tea party (and others!) for a pink themed October tea.

I have an assortment of pink tea cups on display.  Starting on the left in the front is a favorite Royal Grafton cup with multi-colored flowers and a pink border.  This cup has definitely shown up several times on the blog.

Next we have a Gracie China teacup set with jewel toned butterflies.


"A power of Butterfly must be--

The aptitude to fly

Meadows of Majesty concedes

And easy Sweeps of Sky-"

~Emily Dickinson
Next we have a Limoges cup and saucer with prink roses in blue cameos.  This tiny vase of flowers was a gift from an old neighbor that I had over for tea--isn't it cute?

 In the center we have our fairy visitor in a circle of freshly fallen leaves.

 I believe in being strong

when everything seems to be going wrong.

I believe that happy girls

are the prettiest girls.

I believe that tomorrow

is another day,

and I believe in miracles.

~Audrey Hepburn
Behind the fairy is my Paragon Victoriana Rose set, which is followed by a new Gracie China pink chintz set:


It's possible!  For a plain yellow pumpkin to become a golden carriage.


Impossible things are happening everyday!

~Rogers & Hammerstein, Cinderella-- "Impossible"

In the front I have a simple Japanese set with pink roses:
Thanks for visiting me, and don't forget to think pink this month!
