Everyday is Mothers Day Gift Ideas: Royal Tea Travels

Now the tour is going international! Let’s be honest, traveling abroad is on the pricey side and the long flights can make your dreams of traveling fade away like the wind. Thankfully, I found the perfect way to have tea, but you can now drink tea as if you were the Queen of England. Just like you, I am also fascinated with the history of the British Royal family, along with the history of many other cultures. So finding a tea set company who sells authentic sets at an affordable price was hard to find until now.


Anne’s Vintage Delights is your destination for having a moment just for you as a woman. Her shop has some of the most intricate designs that will make the perfect gift for the special person in your life. The china is durable and the plate can be used for tea biscuits and many more delicious treats.

This elegant tea set comprising one tea cup, saucer and plate was made by Royal Albert and the pattern is called Silver Maple. The pretty footed cup pairs really well with the soft and delicate pattern of the china.
This tea set  consists of  one tea cup, one saucer and one plate but  they do have more available as well as a matching cake stand.

• The plate measures 6¼ ins / 16 cm across
• The saucer measures 5½ ins / 14 cm across
• The cup is just over 2½ ins / 6.5 cm high

All pieces are in good vintage condition with no obvious wear.

The china will be packed securely with bubblewrap in a postage style cardboard box, sealed with a thank you napkin and the postage seal of the Queen of England.


To make your dreams of traveling abroad a reality, visit:https://www.etsy.com/shop/Annesvintagedelights to see all of the vintage tea sets that will make your moments more than just tea, instead you will have an adventure with each cup. You will be seeing me and my tea set traveling the world very soon. Keep following my blog for more of my Royal Tea Travels.





Love and Prayers for London



When attacks like this happens, my heart is numb. Whenever I hear the police sirens my pulse heightens. Life is like a river, even though the water is dirty,  the love for every creature that dwells within it  is everlasting. Never lose hope for peace and pray for those who do you harm. Showing them evil will only give them power, instead don’t let them see you sweat. Walk with grace and love, because you are a royal nation and God will be with us all.

Love your friend at True Vivant.

TRUE VIVANT TV: Season 2 of Victoria!!!

Tonight is the time to  clear your schedules, get the perfect snack and watch televisions new hit Drama Series Victoria. I have written about this show before, so this is just an update. So far, in Season 1 we have seen Victoria blossom into a beautiful young woman as the supreme ruler of Great Britain, becoming a wife and soon to be mother in this season. Now, as I thought my Sunday’s would become empty, I  found out that Victoria has been renewed for a second season!!!!! Honestly, I couldn’t be more happy, to actually have a show on television that’s educational and also entertaining.


Plus, the role of Victoria is played by Jenna Coleman who is phenomenal and Tom Hughes commands the stage in his royal positions as Victoria’s husband Prince Albert who is such a dream. Now let’s talk about season two shall we? Ok! 

“According to express.co.uk here is what we will expect from the new season. First off, The new season will air in the autumn and will be followed by a Christmas special.Season two is set in the 1840s, which screenwriter Daisy Goodwin has described as “a decade of revolution, famine and unrest – and for Victoria, much childbearing.” ITV has teased: “Even though she reigned in the 19th Century, Victoria is a heroine for our times. In the next series she faces the very modern dilemma of how to juggle children with her husband and her job.”

They went on to say, “As Victoria will discover, it’s hard to be a wife, a mother and ruler of the most powerful nation on earth!”

Victoria gave birth to her first child in 1940, as was shown in the season one finale. The Queen loathed being pregnant, but contraception was not freely available at the time.She went on to have another five children before the decade was over, and three more in the 1850s. Prince Albert was a strict father, but in Victoria’s eyes he could do no wrong.”
