Tea Cup Tuesday Debut!


Welcome to our very first Tea Cup Tuesday!
I have admired tea cups for many years now. Over time I have collected a few that I truly enjoy drinking from.

What I love about Tea Cups is that they make you want to sit down and drink from them.
They ask for you to have a beautiful moment.
Tea Cups are so lovely they make it easy to feel special.
Tea cups are so beautiful, whatever you drink from them tastes even better.

The tea cup I am sharing today, I found in a Canadian town called Sault Ste. Marie.
It was sitting in a little antique store just waiting for me to pick it up!
I love it's soft blue color and the beautiful roses.

From the little I could find through Google, It seems that Adderly was taken over by Ridgeway Potteries in Longton England in 1947. They still used the Adderly name for a while though. I could make a guess and say that this cup may have been made between then and 1960. I would like to learn more about this, so I will keep researching.
Here are the links to other sites that are participating today. Have a good time visiting with these wonderful ladies. (If your name isn't on here and it should be, I am so sorry. Please e-mail me and I will fix it pronto..nliten@usa.net)

Terri, I found out too late about your party to participate tomorrow, can you count me in for next week?. Enjoy your blog and already try making the shoes. Mine did not turn out as beautiful, I kind of know what I did wrong. i will show you one when I get happy with the final product. My blog is "For the love of junk" and my name is Marta. Thanks for visiting my blog sometime ago, that is how i found you. Blessings, Marta.

Hey Terri! I love your cup and the story behind it. I can't wait to see more of your collection. I have several that my grandmother passed down to me, but today I shared an old favorite. You'll understand when you see it, lol. Thanks for all you do to bring joy to my day. xoxo Rhonda...

This is such a pretty teacup Terri, I have one similar, white with almost the same roses.
Maybe I can join in next week, I didn't know you had started the Tea Cup Tuesday.

Claudia said...

That is such a lovely teacup, Terri! My grandmother collected teacups and I had many of them until someone knocked into the cabinet that held them. They fell to the ground. I was so upset - but that is many years ago and now I am starting to collect them again in honor of her.

So beautiful. I love Tea Cups! I will definitely have to stop back and see more.
I had a Tea Cup with 3 little legs and a matching saucer from my grandmother who's family came from England. I always kept it in my headboard as a child and one day knocked it somehow out of the headboard and it broke. I was DEVASTATED! I will never be able to replace it.

I did just receive the same grandmothers China set and it had 12 teacups and saucers in a Queen Anne's Lace print. Very simple, yet very pretty!

Have a wonderful Tea Cup Tuesday!!!
