It's a "pink-a-licious" day. Time to put aside those those strawberry and raspberry smoothies in favour of pumpkin tea. However I certainly won't refuse a pinkalicious bouquet of flowers from my Hubby .. Would you ?
AH Yes ... I'm still enjoying this weeks tea from same pink teacup. 

It's part of the  Royal Arden Home Collection of cups and saucers that Kim bought for me in Japan. I thought that the set might have been manufactured in Asia however,  it is another lovely new collection of Bone China registered at the  official European Union Trademark data base( CTM).  Made in England , you say ... The answer is, " YES" ... and so true to it's Staffordshire  traditions of beauty and subtle teatime enjoyment.

Infact, the tea set is "Perfect" for my, "pink-a-licious' mood. Haven't you ever had a  day when everything you touch and see shine in the universal aura of   " Pink" love.  Of course, while I'm still trying to rejuvenate from the operation, the exhileration of pink lingers in the air, as a perfect reason  to prolong  women's issues and  their " Cancer " marathon, along with just the  delicious desire for the energy of the  colour
( Ha Ha)

This is such a lovely varigated bouquet of lilies, which had to be tweeked, lest they stain the  tablecloth. It's personally, one of the  most unhappy parts of floral arranging, since the stamens possess such a gorgeous odour. I usually leave them on  for two to three days before clipping . What do you do ?

Look at the pretty molding on the cup.
It  does reminds me of a merry dance of  flower petals and it feels quite natural in my hand... I have heard  that pink is a very calm feeling colour that neutralizes disorder. That's just what the doctor ordered.

I never tire of this perpetual gathering of roses, that is seen on many of the English tea sets. I am always amazed by how brilliant and fresh they look on each new teacup and saucer that is produced. The only thing that ever changes is the colour of the cup and the taste of tea, which is m-m-m- good.

I do believe that a " Pink-a-licious' day  is best served in  by a pink cup of tea which  translates to relaxation, acceptance and contentment .

I can't wait to see what she has to serve up at our next teatime session.

I love your pink teacup, Zaa, and I never tire of the colour pink. I would share pink every week but I realize there are some ladies out there who also prefer blue, and other colours. Gorgeous lilies too. Thank you for coming by for tea and have a lovely week.

A pink mood...sounds delicious!
Your pink roses tea cup is very romantic, and very cheery at the same time. So it is a good cup for your good day : )
I wish for you continued healing and rejuvenation!
