Lorna Doone

Since it is March and the official flower of March is the daffodil, I thought today's set would be perfect to share.

This landscape pattern has a cottage near a field of daffodils and pretty blue flowers.

The cottage is also on the cup and saucer:

This design looks like a painting to me, especially those pretty trees.  Even the inside of the cup has daffodils and blue flowers.

This set is Lorna Doone by Hammersley.

 so maybe Lorna Doone from the book of the same name by Richard Blackmore is sitting in the spring sunshine in this beautiful field?

(This Royal Doulton figurine is called a Lady of Williamsburg, but she is at least closer in time to fashions from the late 1600s).

This week I'm joining:

Bernideen's Friends Sharing Tea 
Rose Chintz Cottage's Tea time Tuesday


  1. I just LOVE landscape teacups! They tell such a story! And what a wonderful story...that's a book I haven't red since grade school. Lovely! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  2. Such a pretty trio! I love daffodils and not too many teacups have daffodils on them. The cottage scene reminds me of something from a story book.

  3. Hi,
    this trio is beautiful and so springy. To look at this charming decoration is like a little journey to spring. Thank you for sharing this spring delight.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  4. Beautiful tea time settings! I love those colors.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  5. Your landscape teacup is lovely, my idea of the perfect country cottage. I like your RD figurine, a good companion to March teas.

  6. What beautiful detail on the cups, saucers and plates. So pretty, and definitely are speaking Spring to me. Love the figurine, she is a beauty.

  7. I simply love landscapes on china, Carrie. Your trio is just gorgeous and makes me long for leafy trees and walks through the garden. I especially love your last photo as it shows off the pattern so well. The RD figurine is lovely. Thank you for sharing with us and joining me for tea.


  8. Your Lorna Doone by Hammersley is gorgeous. You are so lucky to have a trio. I love landscapes and I don't have one single piece on china. Spring is on the way! Happy Tea Day!

  9. Lovely teaset, perfect for March! Those landscape china pieces are wonderful. And Lorna Doone always reminds me of shortbread! ;)

  10. What a gorgeous trio! If only we can inhabit the charming cottages in these landscape designs.

  11. Carrie,
    Such a beautiful spring like tea cup!! Lovely pattern!
    Thanks so much for stopping by!


  12. Oh my gosh, what a perfectly beautiful post. The lovely china together with the Royal Doulton, plus the cheerful daffs was so springy and just made me happy to look at. What special china you have.

  13. Oh Carrie, that is one of the prettiest trios that I've seen. I just love cottage scenes and that one has such lovely detail and colors.

  14. Your dinnerware set is so gorgeous. I just love the pattern...Christine

  15. I was given a set when I turned 16 8 cups and saucers tea pot crean and sugar on tray sandwich plates and server for sandwiches


Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
