One of the first signs of spring is violets. Yesterday we woke up to 2 1/2" of snow and it snowed a little more during the day in the higher elevation parts of the city - but the violets didn't seem to mind...
I also love violets on teapots and teacups. While out antiquing, I recently found three delicate Bavarian hand painted cups and saucers with violets and lily of the valley. At $8.00 each I was ready to pay up.
I pull out different teasets in my house according to the present season. Good thing I have a basement with lots of shelving!
They are very translucent and light to hold. I wonder who painted these and when?
I hope you are having a wonderful springtime! Here in the Rockies we need moisture, even if it is in the form of snow.
I will be linking this post to two other fun blog parties:
