Teacup Thursday: "Flower Fairies of Autumn"

Well, this past Monday (September 27th) was my 21st birthday! And as you all know, my mom started a tradition back when I was 14 years old 'a teacup every birthday!' Well, this year I was lucky and received two!! They are both very pretty and I'm excited to share them with you!

The first one here is a cute 'Flower Fairies of Autumn' Teacup artwork by Cicely Mary Barker. I've always loved her artwork and Autumn is my favorite time of year so I was thrilled when I received this sweet teacup!  Apparently it's one in a series of four by Queen's. I tried googling the other seasons but couldn't find any, so if you happen know of where to I can purchase Spring, Summer or Winter please let me know! I think it would be fun to collect all four!

The Song of the White Bryony Fairy
Have you seen at Autumn-time
Fairy-folk adorning
All the hedge with necklaces,
Early in the morning?
Green beads and red beads
Threaded on a vine:
Is there any handiwork
Prettier than mine?




The Song of the Acorn Fairy
To English folk the mighty oak
Is England's noblest tree;
Its hard-grained wood is strong and good
As English hearts can be.
And would you know how oak-trees grow,
The secret may be told:
You do but need to plant for seed
One acorn in the mould;
For even so, long years ago,
Were born the oaks of old.



Be sure to visit us next week to see my other pretty teacup!
