Confessions of a china hoarder, quilts, tea parties and pink.

I love throwing big Victorian Tea parties, in full Victorian dress. I’ll share about that later. This tea was on a smaller scale . a goodbye tea party for a friend who moved away. It involved making and the giving of a quilt, of course. It also involves beautiful china, flowers and pretty linen. I confess that I hoard china, yes I am a china hoarders. The burning question is how many sets of china does a person need ? i’m attempting to find the answer to that burning question. Is six concurrent sets a bit much? A few years ago, I began a quest to find a set of pink and gold china. I was on the lookout for pink and gold dishes, every yard sale and thrift store. I was determined, time passed, I kept my eyes open. Nothing. When we went on a trip to England, the trip expanded my search field to an entire country, one which had a proper appreciation of beautiful china. The possibilities were staggering, I was dizzy with excitement, the game was a foot! I was in the world of Royal Daulton and Royal Albert. I searched for vintage stores, thrift shops and yard sales, which are apparently replaced by “boot sales” in Britten, an empty field that has filled with cars selling from the trunk of their car. The dishes you see here were found in a flea market in England and carted back home  in a suitcase.Packed with care, crossed fingers. Not one chipped cup. How’s that for packing? I’m sure you’ve noticed how glorious pink and gold are together. I think I may have over dosed on one too many Victoria magazines. A defunct magazine, the stuff of dreams, over flowing with pictures of beautiful cottages, flowers and tea shops. If you know  about Victoria magazine, I suspect you may be on the brink of china hoarding. You, in all likelihood, are obsessed with pink roses draping over a white arbor, cottage gardens, quaint cottages, thatched roofs, tea parties …the list trails off into the sunset….Welcome my new fellow romantic, you too may begin a quest of your own. Maybe it will be for one special hard to find romantica rose, or a blue teapot with cornflowers on it made by Royal Albert…

Finally giving the quilt. She liked it!
