Magpie Monday - A tea set

We are avid tea drinkers in The Mad House.  In fact I am often called a tea monster.  I love the whole routine you have with tea.  I love making it with leaves and it seems the boys are joining me in my tea drinking habit. We have switched to decaf so they can.

We were walking past the church charity shop in the village and we happened upon the lovely tea set below.  perfect. 2ix tea cups  saucers and tea plates.  It also had a milk jug and sugar bowl.  It cost me £10, which was a little more than I would have paid, but we adore it and the boys egged me on!


Perfect for our little family as they tea cups are not tiny and I adore the pattern

  1. You've gotta encourage tea-drinking!

    I'm a tea monster too, but I envy you taking the time to make it with proper leaves. I'm too lazy!

    1. My granddad and mum always used to leaves, so I guess it is in my blood!

    1. I love the whole tea routine and it brings us closer together as a family. Tea is a social drink as you make a pot not a cup

  3. Lovely design and I especially like the jug and bowl. I think a tenner is still good, I remember spotting a lovely vintage tea set in a charity shop but it was marked up at £40 & out of my budget
