New Vintage Gold and Blue Teapot.

I picked up a lovely hand painted vintage bright blue teapot and large milk jug this week. 

Think I am so going to sketch this, it has to be the most perfect teapot to draw. 

I had a long way to walk so only had this box to carry the china in.  

I had to be so careful. Did I mention the over the top Vintage Gold Coffee set either? 
I'm not sure if I did....

 My word it is Bright! But kind of fun, and ostentatious, and a little bit flamboyant.
But I think that is why I like it, makes me laugh.

I probably also haven't mentioned it is my third set like this, oops. Can't help it, My brother even picked a few of this set up in London recently. Can you imagine a whole wedding in this!
(laughing now)
Or even just the top table?
Or a fancy dress wedding?
Or at the Oscars gold themed party?
Think I am trying to convince myself it was a good purchase.

Also the thing is my mother in law has the exact same gold tea-set handed down from her great aunty, but does she use it?
No,I have never ever seen her use it, ever! 
I will, I hope!  

(but I will be smiling while drinking coffee from this dinky gold cup)

Wonder how many of you will like this gold set?
Wonder how many are laughing!
