Sitting on my desk this morning,
and capturing my attention,
is this little vignette of fresh roses from the garden,
and a fragrantly steaming cup of Lady Grey tea.
The scent is intoxicating!
Jewel~rich tones of oranges and reds are all competing
to see who has the loudest colour of the roses.
They are a wonderful blast of cheeriness.
The teacup is one of my vintage obsessions.
Amazing how much better tea tastes
in these dainty cups!
And the little red Mercedes 190SLC,
sitting in the window above,
has found his colour match I think!
Flowers and teacups just seem to belong together.
See how beautifully they get along
in the witty & gorgeously green Tea Parlour?
Of course, you could take this combination quite literally,
by putting the flowers in the teacup,
like Domino have.
And why stop at the usual flowers in a teacup?
Parsley works fabulously, in this stylish wedding,
photographed by Rosie Parsons.
Or, it could be a much more subtle reference.
Like, really subtle.
The green sculpture has the shape of a teacup,
while the pendants look like giant flowers,
in a cheeky fitout by Hecker Guthrie for the Melbourne Cup.
Flower power is powerful indeed,
because their incredible beauty can stop us in our tracks.
For just one precious moment.
And one precious moment is all you need
to partake of tea in a gorgeous cup like these ones
from Christina Re.
Definitely a Delectable Duet
to make a very precious moment from an everyday occurence!
