Take time and visit.. sharing

I want to say good afternoon first of all.. I hope this post finds you well... 
I feel a little bit sad today.. A person who I thought was a good friend surprised me
with some messages on Facebook.. 
That totally wowed me...
but I don't want to spend my post on that.. 
I want to share this wonderful Teapot with you...
It was said that the man who was selling it that it had belonged to his Mom... 
I like that fact it means she was the only owner of it
I really wish sometimes that teapots and cups could talk..
Could you imagine what they'd say...

Teacups and Teapots.. 
I love them...
If I had the monies I probably own a million of them
they would over take my house
which lol they almost have..
It's funny I had bought this Linen Table cloth a while back ago.. and it perfectly matches
My Teapot and cups and saucers..
Mason's Regency Made in England...
I stumble across it one day surfing the web on a lonely evening..

The colors of the Table cloth are very vibrant ... the middle 
area you can play checkers on it.. it came with checkers...
Tip on the lid...

In a basket all ready for a picnic..
I love this pattern 
The full name is Mason's Regency Plantation Colonial
There are so many different pieces to it
I want this Creamer and sugar bowl to match
But it will just have to be put on hold till I catch up with things.. 
Hopefully it will still be around
Most of the pieces are expensive, and you kno I look always for the best buy..
the Creamer and Sugar bowl aren't to bad
but I still can't buy them at the moment..
So they are on my wish list..
I believe the pattern is very old
I haven't found any info on them yet.. I was trying to search today 
but couldn't find anything..
Wouldn't it be nice to have tea in the park and play checkers... 
I finally found a bit of info..

Miles Mason opened his first pottery factory at Lane Delph, Fenton, England, in 1806. It became known as the Minerva Works and his three sons managed the factory. The factory soon became known as “Masons.” The earliest pottery was marked with the backstamp “M Mason” and was influenced by the Asian porcelain he had imported to London in 1796.

Well at least I kno a bit..

Leaving you with a little bit of love
Have a wonderful Thursday 
with love


  1. This is a lovely tea pot and tea set. It will be nice when you are able to get the extra pieces to go with it.


  2. My sweet friend, that a darling little tea set! The colors are beautiful and oh-so-cheerful :)

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog - your visits are always a blessing! Much love to you!

  3. Hi, Janice! I'm back! I sure missed all my blog friends and reading their entries every day. Love your latest show and tell teacups and pot. You have the prettiest things and I love seeing them.

  4. What a lovely tea set and I know you must enjoy it. We collect English ironstone china in the tea leaf pattern and prefer the Alfred Meakin maker as my husband is related to him. I find the thrill of the hunt just as exciting as using the pieces.

  5. Hello Dear Janice...Oh, lovely, lovely, lovely. Loved the pot, the cup, the cloth----everything. Honestly, Janice, you have an artist's and interior decorator's eye. If we lived closer, we could open the most GORGEOUS shop! Oh yes! Your Mama's house, now yours, is going to be a masterpiece. I am going to LOVE visiting your posts there. Have a beautiful day, my friend. Susan

  6. What a beautiful tea service, Janice! I can see why you love it so, and the pieces look so pretty with your gorgeous, vintage tablecloth. Happy tea time to you!

  7. I love your new tea service Janice. That pattern is gorgeous. I love the bright happy colors that make it perfect for this time of year. You match it perfectly with that cheery tablecloth.

    Happy Saturday.


  8. Love the fact that you can play checkers on your lovely tablecloth. All so pretty as usual Janice!
