The colour "Pink" is on the lips of every little girl and her daydreams... It is also the perfect colour to endear the feelings of gentleness and affection. Today I join Sandi at Rose Chinz Cottage and her " Pink Tea" in awareness of Breast Cancer Month with this charming little Foley, tea set. dated,
It doesn't have a name, only a soft hint of pink that seems to symbolize the delicate balance of health and well being for many women on their incredible journey in life.
Although I've had this Foley set for years, I had never shared tea within the delicate vessel. Today is the day ... Don't you think that the colour "pink" tends to be a maternal colour !!!!!
Personally, I do have a significant affection for everything pink . One might even say that I look at the world through rose coloured glasses. ( Ha ha) ... BUT .... What a joy it is to be charmed by the gentle qualities of this " Pink" aura, at home and in the garden Here , I'm sharing my beautiful pink, Stargazer Lilies. The blossoms were huge this past summer.
Their rippled appearance seemed to echo the lovely lines of the cup and saucer with it's raised circumference. It's a flowing pattern that compliments the natural balance and harmony of nature that I respect !!!!
The china markings on the tea set are that of E. Brain and Co. Ltd, who bought out his partner, Robinson & Sons in 1885 at the Foley works in Fenton, Stokes-on-Kent. In 1963 he bought the classic name ' Coalport , who in turn was bought by Royal Doulton.
The evolution of china and creative patterns is a fascinating study that we all, have maybe shared in another lifetime. TODAY, I herald the camaraderie, beauty and the balance that we can glean from one another and nature.... for only in God's garden can we understand the fragile miracle of life. I would like to dedicate these double flowering Asian Lilies to all ladies who, move between the intricate pages of transformation ... Bravo for your courage !!!!
Today, I contemplate a calm sisterhood of affection and love by sharing tea with you.
I wish you all, this delicate PINK desire of protection and love ...
"YOU are a Child of the Universe "
No less than the trees and the stars.
You have a right to be here,
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt
the universe is unfolding as it should.
Today I am joining:
