Before I share with you one of my favorite milk glass tea sets, allow me to indulge you for a moment and show the pretty ranunculus that I picked up at my local market.
so sweet in the pressed glass vase and the perfect opportunity to bring out a vintage embroidered table runner. I adore embroidered linens and these cross-stitch napkins are especially nice with the milk glass tea set.
This inspired me to spend a little time at my sewing machine today. I created a sweet little embroidered tea towel.
I chose a very delicate design which shows in stark contrast to the more heavily embroidered vintage table runner.
I chose flour sack cloth for the embroidery. Although it's new, it has a vintage quality to it dont you think? The less than perfect nature of the cotton lends itself well to delicate stitcheries.
Since I'm particularly fond of this tea set, I keep it displayed on my kitchen shelf along with a milk glass bud vase, two porcelain candle holders, and a blue and taupe set of embroidered tea linens.
Thanks for visiting with me today. I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you come again soon.
I am linking this post to Tea-time Tuesday , Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday, and A Return to Loveliness. Many beautiful things to enjoy.
