A Wee Bit of Golden Luck

Hi everyone!

Today I am showing another teacup Troy bought me. This one was a Christmas present.

Since St. Patrick’s Day is this week, a teapot and teacup of gold seemed appropriate! Maybe it will bring a little luck of the Irish!



The teacup is a M. Knowles china piece.




I was so excited that I managed to keep my shamrock plant alive since last year! Inside plants, I seem to have a black thumb. Outside, I rock! LOL So, this was a major accomplishment to me!


I had to share this fun Irish thrift find. This linen shows the recipe for Irish Coffee.




Little golden sugar crystals served with a gold spoon.



I used various shades of green and gold linens.


Some Minty Green Tea seemed right for our tea today.


Some fun and silly St. Patrick’s day fun. Stop by tomorrow and you will see this changed out to a little Easter!


Thank you for stopping by and sharing a wee bit of the Irish with me today!

    I LOVE your pretty teapot and teacup! How lovely! I'm telling you, that Troy is a keeper, for sure! He sure knows how to please his lady!
    Your shamrocks look wonderful! I love all the green touches you have put into your tea today; very fun. Thank you for joining me and Happy St. Patricks Day!


  5. Lovely teaset! I like the towel with the Irish Coffee recipe! Cute!
    hugs, Linda

  6. Hi Diann, This is a pretty tea. Your gold and white filigree teaset is so pretty! Like your pretty sugar too!

  7. What a sweet St. Patrick's Day vignette! That tea towel with the Irish Coffee recipe makes me want to go whip up a nice, hot drink. Yum! And the little teacup is so sweet. That Troy, he's got good taste!

  8. What a gorgeous tea set. I'm sharing your St. Patrick's day vignette with my sister who loves to celebrate this special day with her Irish husband. We were just in Frankenmuth and I had to buy her some special ornaments for this upcoming holiday.

  9. Your teacup and teapot are so elegant! Love all that gold trim....that is quite an accomplishment to keep alive a shamrock for an entire year! I just bought mine and it seems to wilt awfully quick. Will have to keep a watchful eye on mine. That linen towel with the Irish coffee recipe is so fun and original.. I've not seen one like that before...what a great find. Your tea table is just beautiful Diann! Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  11. Lovely golden china! Hubby sure does get you nice pieces.

  12. The tea setting is very pretty Diann! Fun recipe for the Irish Coffee to, love pouring the cream over the spoon so it stays on top:@)

  13. Beautiful tea party setting, Diann. That tea cup is is so dainty looking, I would be afraid to use it!

  14. Your pretty china is perfect for a touch of gold on St. Patty's Day! I collect linen tea towels but I do not have one with a recipe for Irish coffee! :) Linda

  15. It took more than luck to create this lovely post.

  16. Diane, I always love gold trim, and your tea cup with cream and gold is so very pretty! And, you have the tea pot too? Fabulous! Together they are stunning!
    Lucky girl : )

  17. Thanks for showing your greens! You know it is bad luck to show Easter before the great saint's day is over don't you? :)
