I am painfully aware of the popularity of this particular pink flowery with gold edge cup and saucer combo. Hundreds of reproductions, everyone has a set and they’re going dirt cheap.

The only reason I did not have one is because I’m not so laid back about my tea sets. It would annoy me no end to serve tea in pretty delicate cups poured from a completely different teapot. Luckily for me, the set I saw in a charity shop in town had the teapot and milk jug.


Only one cup/saucer/side plate yes, but I’m the only person in the house who drinks tea, and given the nature of the design, it can’t be hard to find a couple of look-a-like friends to join the collection.

Anyways. It was £3. Who’s gunna argue.
