So awesome right?! We just got a batch of vintage tea cups in today and it was my job to price them and put them out. Most of the ones I really wanted were the expensive ones (I guess I have good taste in tea cups?), but this one was SUPER cheap, I think because it is so crazy and doesn't have a maker's mark (it just says Germany on the bottom). I normally prefer silver to gold, but this was just so ostentatious I couldn't resist! I mean every lady pirate needs a gold treasure tea cup to drink her tea with rum out of right? Good ol' Chantilly, making me spend money again.
And speaking of Chantilly we have a lot of Irish themed food there right now for the month of March and yesterday for an early St. Patrick's Day lunch I brought this home to have with tea.
It is honey-lime chicken salad, with an Irish soda bread muffin and Irish butter on the side. Oh man, let me tell you about this butter! So I always thought that all butter tasted pretty much the same, right? Wrong! This is a weird thing to say, but that butter was the best butter I have EVER had. It was delicious! I can not even describe how yummy it was with the muffin. I wish I could send you some so you could try it, I just know you would love it too.
Okay sorry, butter rant over. Here are some more photos of my St. Patty's tea. Note that I used all my green accessories.
Cuppa Tea really wanted some too.
And what afternoon tea would be complete without an issue of Victoria?
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
