Tea Time ~ Sabin China

I haven't had a chance to sit down to a little Tea Time for a while.  My mom stopped by and it was the perfect time to sit down and chat over a little tea.

I inherited this china from one of my husband's ancestors. He's not sure if it was his aunt's or his grandmother's. Either way, I love it. The roses are so soft and delicate and reminds me of a rose in the moonlight.

The silver tray, I inherited from my grandmother.  It still a piece of tape on the back with her name.  It is one of my prized possessions. 

I had freshly baked Wholesome Peanut Butter Cookies.   Paired with some Vanilla Chai tea and we had a delicious combiniation!   I like my Chai with 2 teaspoons of sugar and a good bit of milk.  My mom drinks her's plain.

I really like this close-up of the cup and saucer.  I even featured it for my {this moment} post.  This Tea Time was one of my favorite moments last week.

The pattern apparently doesn't have an official name.  All I can find is:
Pattern: SAB103 by SABIN [SABSAB103]

If anyone knows more about this pattern, please let me know.
