i carry england in my heart, i carry it in my heart

two back to back posts about this same corner.  one by night one by day (see previous post)  it's that at different times of the day the same irradiates a atotally different luminosity.
it's been a while since i participated in martha's teacup tuesday but being that i just dusted the teacup cupboard and enjoyed it's newfound glory, i thought i'd share my "english country cottage" corner, in english ofcourse after months of posting in my native spanish.
 i call it my english country cottage corner but on close inspection, there is a french teacup, an american teacup, a japanese teacup as well as a vintage tin from spain.

 i also have a thing for pitchers and creamers
as you can see.
 i love this tiny painting under the vignette.  it must be the world's smallest painting measuring 1.5 x 1 inch. the larger frame my daughter got for me at a goodwill store for a mere .99c.

more from occupied japan as in japanese floral brooch, a german frozen charlotte, american cameo pin, and a french miniature copper plate with the image of marie antoinette. i guess cottage style is a worldwide phenomenon.
viva les cottages of the world and all the blogs that highlight teacups and the love of tea.

i leave you with an intesresting blog i recently visited thanks to a comment on mine=

As I read your post I realized, we all think of tea as an "English thing", yet tea, and tea drinking, is universal. Your post and pictures show this. Japanese , English, American, Chinese, ...well, the whole world over, tea is for us all.

You have a gift for presentation, lovely !

BTW, I love that those of us contributing to 'Tea Cup Tuesday' show our teacups, even showing again favorite teacups, because really, most of us do not have endless teacup collections. I especially appreciate people showing the many ways and tea times they use their same teacups.

Adorei ver todos os teus tesouros no móvel branco tão gracioso.
O jarro para água é o meu favorito, mas achei tudo encantador, incluindo as coisas que mostras no último post.
Sou portuguesa mas também costumo participar no Tea Cup Tuesday e no Tea Time Tuesday.
Obrigada pela partilha dos teus bonitos objetos.
Um abraço
