I'M IN THE GARDEN
I quess, they are not going to pop up for tea teatime, but I know that you are.
OK... I washed my hands, changed my clothes.
I do look somewhat presentable..OOPS ..I forgot to brush my hair.
five years ago. It looks like a Fragonard/Limoge doesn't it!!!
Fragonard was a French Painter in the courts of Louis XV and Louis XVl,
who was famous for his romantic garden scenery.
Alas, it doesn't have any markings on it, so I suspect, that it isn't a Limoge,
since most authentic pieces possess a stamps on the bottom.
That's alright !!!!
We can still enjoy the romantic beauty of it's floral fancy
and the rich aura of gold against our lips, while sipping our tea together.
Can't we !!!!
The Japanese artisans were masters at copying fine details,
they sometimes enhanced the natural beauty of the porcelain pieces by adding colour and details.The thick rounds of gold on this vintage set just seem to be screaming " HELLO "
( BLING BLING)
and SQUARE sugar cubes, instead of loose granules...
While online I came across a little tea etiquette.
We can all practise stirring our tea,
FORWARDS and BACKWARDS, instead of round and round...
Just incase you have tea with the Queen.
INCIDENTALLY, There will be NO fighting over teacups today,
because they're all the same... and I have eight of them.
On the way over to my house ...
YOU might enjoy the variegated colours
of the lupines, that are growing throughout the countryside.
They paint such an ethereal landscape at this time of the year, with
their bright purples, pinks and blush blossoms.
Aren't they pretty?
Don't you just want to RUN through them?
In the meantime,
Your cup is on the table in the parlour.
I'll be waiting for you in the garden.
ENJOYING THE MUSIC.
