Another Rose Wednesday!

Time for another Rose Wednesday w/ Jan & the girls!

Today I'd like to share this Noritake, hand painted tea pot w/ beautiful roses on it. I bought it for a song on eBay years ago. It came w/ a sugar, creamer & 6 dessert plates.

Here's one of the plates.. Are you ready for how much I paid for this lovely set? Just a little over $20 plus shipping! It was back in the day, before shipping got so outrageous, so it was probably only about $30, $35 total....for the whole set!

I particularly love using them for fall because of the autumnal tones. If you are a roselover (& there aren't many in blogland who aren't! LOL) , then head over to Jan's to see all of the Rose Wednesday participants.

That was a great find. I've never seen that pattern...and trust me, I've seen A-LOT of patterns!

Hi Cami...

Thanks for joining us today!! Your Teapot, sugar, creamer and plates are exquisite. I, too, love the autumnal colors of them!

I am feeling a wee bit better...and am finally able to squish my feet into my Clarke's clogs. I still limp horribly and the discoloration in both feet is astounding! And that's after a week and a half has passed since the attack. My legs also look bruised.

Thanks for your well-wishes.

Hey Cami!
This is such a beautiful Noritake tea set....isn't ebay the best! I love your vignette with the little chair that you have the sugar dish sitting on...it's so cute. I have a white chair similar to this little one you have here....now you've inspired me girl! I've gotta go see what I can come up with for my little chair. Hope you have a Happy Rose Wednesday!

You're right (about the spoiling thing), but apparently, from what I can tell from her friends...she has ALOT of company, and ONE company is doing very well in the midst of this economic crisis..b/c if they weren't, they might consider lowering their prices (which I would LOVE). And again, you're right...what an expensive habit!
