For the Love of Blue and Pink

There is an old saying - good tea deserves a smart teapot, and people use pretty kettles to justify this saying. It is easy to get attracted to fine ceramic ware but getting hooked to blue ceramic ware is a special sort of love for many & I am no exception to it. This kettle was picked up at the first glance for its attractive irregular handle, its incredible intricate design & colour.

The colour Blue along with colour Pink is a great combination & along with some of my other blue table ware mixed in, both colours are used to give a tea scape of this nature, on a sunny day.

This Chinese porcelain tea pot has its own beauty and charm and can be used as a vase, if you take the lid off.

The beautiful pink flowers in bloom were picked up from the garden and went well with the scape. The Ixora flowers found in the tropical countries of the world, produce large clusters of tiny flowers in the summer with shades of white, deep red, pink, pale orange and yellow & they attract numerous butterflies and bees for the store of nectar in them

    1. Thanks for the advice Kathleen. I wasn't too sure, as to how to solve the problem, and it took me a while to figure it out. I have set the word verification option to 'No' in settings. Hope it works fine now.

      & Thank you for the lovely comment too :)
