Truly, I'm grateful for the downtimes I spend during my workday.
  I remember my first year of college @ Langston University:   I found the  


and it's call and meaning has never left my inner core!

Oh, How I also love a Weeping Willow Tree..... this one of off 36th & Western and Ollie Street-OKC...     Breathtaking.  I rolled the windows down, slowed in driving thru the neighborhood, fully experienced the shadows and shade  if this tall, elegant tree.   I certainly didn't feel like Weeping.... but Joy and Rejoicing!  Nobody but God!!!  PTL

I'm sipping from another Royal Albert Kentish Rocthe light floral scene on my estate sale collectible for $3.00 cup only!

Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage  
made reference to the Royal Albert Leaf  Design on her cup....
It's an 'aaaah-haaa' moment when I see the beautiful small details!

I'll probable be so enthusiastic in learning my china.....  The dainty double gold edged cup is described as "COUNTESS SHAPE";   an older version whose backstamp is As Supplied to Her Majesty Queen Mary.

 I googled... and was pleased to find a bit about the Kentish Rockery RA series (discontinued via 1960-1980!)
Since I have only the cup.... ...Etsy shop photos (below) show the a scenic garden with birds and butterflies in dainty shades of pinks, greens and blues.... someone described flowers like foxglove and roses!!??  adding to the romanticism of English royalty!

Have a wonderful day.......  I'd love for you to share in my visits to
