Russian tea time? St. Paul tea time? I know some people who would find the setting and the tea accouterments very interesting. I think I'd prefer wine in a glass or beer from a bottle. Sorry about the lack of myself in the posts you looked at. I try to keep out of the public eye so I won't be recognized from my posters in the Post Office. :-)
Magnifique vaisselle vraiment !
With a tea set like that I might take up the practice!
Love love the teapots and cups. Fan of blue & white.Lowell made me chuckle...a little one once commented. about the post office pictures...why didn't they just keep them when they took their pictures? Good question...
I'm sure any tea would taste better when served from this set.
It all looks so inviting!
Russian tea time should start with a samovar.
Dave, I have a samovar in my dining room. I should take a photo and send it to you!
I love that tea set!
Pretty but too fancy for me. I might break something.
Beautiful table setting. Thanks for the close-up, too!
Beautiful! I don't trust myself owning such a pretty set (the oops and bang factor), but I do love going out for afternoon tea.
This is lovely china, Kate. I like the almost-geometric pattern of the tea pot.
What a lovely table set!
Lovely!!! A friend of ours went to Russia and came back with that classic teapot and full set of dishes!!!
What a lovely set! Someday I will serve tea for you with my German set.
The teapot is gorgeous!
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
