Beautiful Things

Sometimes in life you get given something that is just so beautiful you just have to share... So recently I’ve been coming home from work and enjoying a good old cup of tea and biscuit (I’m loving the cookies at the moment, however, other biscuit types are available). I realise that this may be a turning point in my life as old age is most definitely setting in, or maybe not, maybe I just enjoy a good brew.

Anywho, I normally enjoy my tea out of a standard mug and stick my biscuits on the table by the side:


But oh no no no, I don’t want to carry on in such an untimely manner, I want to be a sophisticated lady, and this brings me onto my beautiful thing, a vintage look cup and saucer tea set. I mentioned my fascination with such an item a while before Christmas and as he is such a wonderful man he bought me this as one of my Christmas presents :)

I love it so much I'm too scared to open up the packaging, so sorry about that, but you can see what it looks like below :)




You can get your own beautiful teacup here from John Lewis.

At least now I can sup my tea and biscuits in style!

Stay Cool,

  3. It's so pretty! I'd be scared of breaking a dainty tea cup like that. And biscuit-wise, you can't go wrong with Tesco value digestives ;) xx

  8. Beautiful tea set! I'm almost embarrassed to say this, but I had my first legit cup of tea yesterday. Most of my life I've been anti-tea - called it "dirt water" haha. But I was recently exposed to the awesomeness that is the tea world. It's not just Lipton, yuck! I want to get lots of cups and saucers now!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Means a lot.
