Tea Cup Tuesday from Home!


Hello All.
I am home today and excited to share my new Marie Antoinette tea mugs with you. Why tea mugs you say? I did look and look for for a special tea cup to bring home. I ended up with these two that I bought at the Petite Trianon gift shop at Versailles. They are patterned after china of Marie's. They did have replicas that were tea cups, but they were 120 Euros and up.
So, I decided to bring these two lovely ones home.


I think they are adorable. They are new, of course, and made in France. I love the little delicate spray of flowers around the top. Next week I will be back with vintage cups to share with you. The books and postcards in the photo are vintage and from my trip to Paris. I did finally purchase a number of really nice things at some flea markets. This Friday I will be sharing about my favorite flea market and some of the treasures I found there.

I have also made some Blueberry muffins this morning to have with my tea. I drizzled a little lemon sugar frosting on them for extra yumness. These are gluten free muffins, and they are delicious!

I will also be starting my first giveaway for French Friday...so come by for a visit to see what I am gifting to some lucky winner!

Thank you all for your posts while I was away in Paris. I loved reading your comments! Our trip went very well and we truly enjoyed everyday there. We will miss the smell of buttery bread baking...cobblestone streets....old buildings....walking by the Seine....cafes....
Oh well, I will have to wait for French Fridays to relive it as I share more photos with you.

If you want to join us in Tea Cup Tuesday, all you need to do is fill in the two blanks below and we can come see you and your lovely china.
Martha and I love hosting this festivity. We so much enjoy visiting all of you. Make sure you stop by Martha's lovely blog as well.
Hugs to you all,
Terri

Dear Terri,
What a lovely post! The cups are very pretty. It is wonderful that you had such a good time in Paris and arrived safely home with so many good memories.
I did not join the TT, but did post a story on drinking tea along the river. Maybe you would like to look at Marie Antoinette's shoes?
Have a nice day!

Welcome home, Terri! Your cups are divine and so are those muffins!! You must share that recipe as I have a friend who has gluten issues and that would be such a treat for her.

Rest up and I cannot wait to hear more of your fabulous trip.
