Tea with Mr. Bunny





I found Mr. Bunny tea pot at the Old South Trading Post when I took my daughter shopping there a few days ago. Isn't he a cutie?

The cupcakes are not real. I bought them for half price at Diane's Frame and Gift Shop, which is one of my favorite local shops here. I have over $40 credit in the store which they have been holding for a few months now, so I thought I would take my daughter shopping there and use it.

The china is Tirschenreuth Rosedale. I have a complete dinnerware set for 8.
The yellow dinnerplate, which I am using here as a plate charger, I just got from Ebay. I bought 2 sets of 4 for $9/set. I thought they would look good for a garden tablescape. I like the raised flowers along the edge.
The sugar & cream servers and tea cup are part of another tea set but I think they go well with Mr. Bunny.

I am linking with the following Tuesday memes:

Gorgeous china!!!! I just love it. I love Mr. Bunny too. Have you seen the cute Easter plates at Williams-Sonoma? They are egg-shaped and have bunny scenes on them. They'd look nice too with your Mr. Bunny teapot. Have a wonderful week!
