Today I am sharing with you a tea cup and saucer that is very special for this time of year. About 12 years ago, my husband and I were in an Antique Mall and it was getting close to my Birthday and I spotted a set of dishes that reminded me of my Grandmothers dishes. It was not a complete set, but the price was right and I loved the brown and green color, so for my Birthday my husband bought me the set. When I got home I did a little research on them and found out that they still make this china, so I was able to complete the set a service for 12. They are Johnson Brothers, which are made in England and the name of it is The Friendly Village. I use this china just for Thanksgiving each year, I have amber stem wear and glasses, so it makes for a very beautiful table with very fall like colors. I will be getting this china out on Thursday and washing it by hand and setting a very pretty table. Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday. You can click the button on my side bar to see everyone's cup and saucers for today. I want to thank everyone for visiting me today and wish you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Terri

Oh, such a seasonal set and I would love to eat off a table with these dishes. I think they could do right into Christmas, but maybe you have a Christmas set too!

Oh, they make me think of the song, 'over the river and through the woods, to grandmother's house we go'. I love them!
What a perfect set for the holidays!
