Love Story

A Love Story on Bone China, Perhaps a Courting Couple Scene depicting a Victorian Couple sitting on a bench as talks to the beautiful lady.

Vintage Adams Collectible Tea Set in Chintz in the Lord Nelson Style Tea Set. It is Transfer ware from 1900-1950’s. The stamp mark on the Plates match the year according to The Potteries; the approximate period it comes from. The illustration is from a famous painting. It signed by the painter and is an historical theme.

The picture appears to be that of an Edwardian couple who were likely to be courting. (Note: I cannot verify the painting or the people in the painting.)

The gilded gold pieces are Chintz design and are all Marked: “Adams Estd. 1657 England.” The set is in good condition, no cracks or chips.

Vintage. This set would be ideal for brides; Tea on the wedding day, bridal parties, bride dress fittings, bridal luncheons, bridal breakfast, showers, teas and hen parties and ideal for bridal shops.

Royal Worcester

Worcester is a city

In the central of England

West Midlands is the region.

By the River Severn,

A medieval village

Is Worcester.

Born from earthworks and local

Came Cathedral’s, royal tombs,

With crypts and cloisters

And where pottery Rose

Became Porcelain and Bone China.

It traces the evolution

It’s back from the Middle Ages.

The History of England

Even survived Civil War to the 1950s.

Then Timber-framed and Tudor;

A focus on life in the Tudor style

The way of 17th-century life

Of Worcester days; a fancy teacup

With displays on tradition;

Tea, brewing, basket weaving

And a pottery born fine bone

So graced With a grandeur

To name it Royal and Worcester.

Living for the Moments


Waltzing into my existence with shoes fit for 

A Welsh guard. 

Intentions of conquering the unknown,

Within the melodies laughing in my heart,

Holding my hand, 

Unlike you did with the others. 

Instead, you found me nestled in your arms;

A proclamation of love; in that bearskin hat. 

It wasn’t too hard to love you properly.

Finding myself shine in the gleam of a smile, 

Where I discovered you in the dark 

In the depths of innocence, 

I was dressed like Paddington Bear

There was no denying you in that uniform, 

Realising running was not an option. 

That is when we knew the truth;

When discovery leaves you trembling 

In that moment;

When this heart shall never belong 

to another; 

And when there are moments,

You just cannot put into words. 

Columbia Road 

My favourite flower is the peony. When I look at what creation has made I see such amazing examples right here on a Sunday; in the middle of London on Columbia Road at the Flower Market…and it was my birthday today. 

These peony flowers spring up to life, nurtured by the sun, water, and soil; A proclamation of the glory of artistry from the earth. They grow and multiply until they reach their glorious peak of colours; everyone orchestrated by creations hand. 

It is the artists that praise your beauty, imitating only to try to capture glory with paint on canvas. For in their eyes you are imagination aspiring. But I wonder can a wildflower not compete with you too? 


Achieving such harmony of tones of contrast require skill and mastery. To be so effective on more levels than the simply aesthetic. I often find myself overcome with joy at the wonder of you. 

Almost as if serenity is evoked only by the specific use of colour scheme nature has made. 

I appreciated the flower market for it’s beauty, thank you… it brought me closer to you. In the heart of a relationship, we are like a peony flower taking root and I feel that I am valued in your eyes. No longer do we compete with the weeds that hinders the growth of our dreams.

We are like the peonies on Columbia Road; we were planted, we are here to live, to love and grow; to become one in a life that is beautiful and creative; for we are here to thrive and if we nurture each other, like the peony…none of us will never fade or wither. 


Enjoy.
