Green is the color of nature, fertility and life. It symbolizes self-respect and wellbeing. Since my daughter is visiting with my Grandson Bodhi, I thought that teatime in this fluted Windsor cup and saucer, just might give me the balance needed to keep up with a active little two year old.
The intricately designed leaves on this china always remind me of learning, growth and harmony, thus, it becomes a peaceful vessel for a perfect teatime. I must add, that I'm re-learning alot about running after a little toddler, in between my sips of tea.( ha ha)
It's a whimsical cup that possesses a lovely bell shape, that has been quite artistically trimmed with ruffled gold gilded edges.
The posies and vines of this saucer are hypnotic, as they interweave like magical threads into another time....Medieval perhaps!!!! What do you think ? I keep seeing pretty Irish girls dancing !!!
It seems that most of my china cups originate in Longton, Stafforshire, England. This particular set, was created by the Windsor- Co-operative Wholesale Society Ltd, dated from the 1940's to the 1960's . There were simply hundreds of patterns produced in this area of Britian, which poured over into extended pottery family names such as Clarence Bone China and Crown Windsor Pottery.
One more sip of tea before my Grandson wakes up ... My how time flies in the life of a Child... I remember when Bohdi was born.... He was such a tiny little fellow!!!!( Ha ha)
HMMMM .... I'm enjoying this cup of camomile tea, recalling a quiet moment that I captured of my daughter, Manda and her baby when he was one year old. I love this picture!
Now, Bohdi is a two year old darling, who gives lots of " NO " hugs and kisses .... everything is " NO "... Ha Ha
Goodness, how this cup is overflowing with a Tea Cup Tuesday abundance of love and joyful memories ... that only a child can fill. Maybe someday, he will sit and have a cup of tea with his Grandma !!!
Ladies, may I extend my sincere wishes, that you will find the time to cherish each precious moment with your children and grandchildren ... as they grow sooooo quickly. In the meantime, I'm off to chase the little fellow around the piano... with a hop, skip and a jump .... "Tra- la- la " Are you tired yet ?
Soon, the Grand Lady will be ready for another cup of tea and a relaxing visit to your Tea Cup Tuesday Blogs... I can hardly wait. ( Huff and Puff)
