Antique Week: Delicate Flowers

It's Antique Week at my mom's house.  It's not possible to show you all the pretty delicate floral things my mom has.  She has quite an extensive collection of tea cups and gorgeous china.  Some of these items are not antique but definitely weren't purchased yesterday.  These are just a tiny sampling of some of my favorite pieces.

Leaf cup and saucer, and heavily floraled sets that make me oh so happy.

Love this English tea tin and seed packet tin.

Teeny tiny kerosene lamps on a crocheted doily.  Mom's Royal Albert tea pot is in the back.  She has nearly every piece in the set.

The tiny little white plates with pink flowers and gold plating on the rim are so delicate.  My mom has a large set of this pattern.  We are very lucky to done with them at Christmas.

Flowers, flowers, flowers. 

What's not to love?
