Tea Cup Tuesday


Happy Tuesday Everyone!

This will be our second Tea Cup Tuesday. Martha and I really enjoyed last weeks and we appreciate all of you who joined in. Your tea cups were beautiful as were your posts!
This week we will be trying out Mr. Linky, and his wonderful widgets. See at the end of this post you can automatically join the list for T.T. at any time on Monday or even Tuesday. Just type your name in the first box, and then your blog address with http:// before it.
(ex. http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com) then hit enter.
Let us know what you think of this advancement.

For this Tea Cup Tuesday I am sharing a tea cup from England. Again, I believe I purchased it in Ontario, Canada.
I love the print on this cup!

It was made in the same town as my cup last week, Stoke on Trent, in England.
From what I can find out it seems to have been made around 1952, so it is a little younger than my cup last week. Rosina China manufactured it. Rosina China was formerly G. Warrilow and Sons Ltd.

Oddly enough, I found out that the cup and saucer are not original to each other. When I turned them over to photograph the makers mark, I saw that they had different markings! So somewhere during the last 50 years a cup missing a saucer and a saucer missing a cup came together to make this beautiful pair!

Lovely cup and saucer - I love the all-over pattern.

I'm not participating because I'm a coffee mug user, not a tea cup user - LOL - but I'm enjoying seeing the offerings of others!

Mr. Linky sure is magical since he is here and on Martha's at the same time. Your teacups are so lovely! I love things that are mismatched but go together so well -- like your cup and saucer. Love your blog header and background. So serene and pretty. Have a wonderful day. :) Tammy

Such a lovely spring like pattern on this tea cup. You would never know it wasn't a match from the picture.
My sister in law has most my mom's at her house. I wish it was close enough to hop over and photography them, but here I am any way.
Have a lovely day~ Theresa MsartsitSewCrafty
