Downton Abbey -- tea trio for Lady Sybil

Dear everyone,
Thank you very much for your kind words. I was happy about your warm welcoming words.

Indeed, last year was a bit hectic and intense for me but what I gained was the travelling and food experience. What is most important is that I truly feel that happiness come from having a calm and peaceful life rather than luxurious life filled with material things. Sometimes those who are at the top of social ladder really do not have a sense of peace and lost in the mundane world. 

I guess everyone should follow their dreams rather than choosing what other people expect them to choose. Success means different things to different people. By following your own unique path, you will feel peace no matter what cos you are waking up every day doing things that you enjoy. I guess this is the reason why Lady Sybil from Downton Abbey choose her own path even though there are people objecting her. 

The tea trio I choose for her is made by Fenton. The deep royal blue indicates her prestigious background, the pale baby blue represents her dreamy nature. She is not afraid of fighting what she truly believes and follows her heart's desire. 

I hope all of you can enjoy doing what you like and keep doing it.

Have a nice weekend! 

I am joining Martha and Terri for tea cup Tuesday. 


  1. What a lovely trio. The cake looks elegant too.

  2. Your Fenton trio is gorgeous ... so elegant and romantic! I'm sure Lady Sybil would have loved have some of that delicious looking cake and tea served on this Fenton china. Happy Tea Day!

  3. The Fenton trio is lovely. And the cake is so elegant.

  4. Hello Felicity, this is such a gorgeous and romantic cup! The coloring is amazing, and the design so beautiful. Fenton makes such wonderful patterns.
    Your cake looks incredible! What is it?

  5. I'm so glad you are back and so sorry I missed your "come back" post with that exquisite teacup. But I think I like today's teacup even more and I love the way you linked it to a character.

  6. Love the Fenton! It is such a beautiful cup. Have a wonderful week, Felicity. Blessings, Martha

  7. Oh how lovely! Love your Fenton, and your cake is drool worthy! Your post was so touching to read. I haven't started that show yet believe it or not, I plan to pick it up on Netflix so I can watch it all. My Jane Austen group all watch it, and they are surprised I didn't pick it right up. Thanks for the kind visit today!
