A Freecycle Tea Party

I recently posted about some Freecycle finds, and decided to use some of it in this weeks Tablescape Thursday post hosted by Between Naps On The Porch.
I found four fine china tea cups and saucers.

They're by Ansley and the pattern is called "Hensley". Made in England.

I love the pattern,
and I love the color scheme.

I'm not really a teacup kind of gal, but my statue couple thinks I should be. And I do whatever my statue couple tells me to do!

One of my other Freecycle finds were two vintage prints,
from a 19th century artist named W. L. Taylor.

Sorry about the poor photography, but except for wiping the glass with a dry cloth, I hesitate to clean or disassemble these for now.

I think these may have some minor value to them. Not that I would sell them, but it would be interesting to know.

According to back of these prints, they were given to someone, perhaps family or close friend from a late persons estate.

They were framed back in 1974 or at least someone addressed the back of them in 1974 when they were given to "Elizabeth". So I'm pretty sure that these aren't recent copy's. Anyway, I really like them and think they will hang in my bedroom.
