Miniature Tea Cup Tuesday!

Hello All and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Martha and I began this venture almost a year ago and we have been enjoying it immensely. Martha has some fine cups to show you this week (as usual!) so pop by and see her too.
Today I am sharing tea cups in a different way, I am sharing tiny tea cups!

I have always loved miniatures. I have created a dollhouse and a tea room and I still have a little work to do on both of them yet before I show them off. I have seen incredible doll houses in blogland. One that really amazes and delights me is Linda's at Une Petite Folie's. Linda's "Petite Maison" is magnificent and I can't even imagine the amount of work that has gone into it.
It is worth the visit!

These beautiful blue and white dishes and tea cups were commissioned to be made to recreate a vintage pattern. I wish I could remember the miniaturists name who did this. I was able to buy a number of them from her when she was downsizing her collection. I was able to get platters and bowls too! I will treasure these items and pass them down to my daughter some day. The table was made from recycled items, and the chairs were brown plastic when I bought them, so I fixed them up to look more chic! I love how they look like they have rattan seats. I am hoping to make or find some delicious looking food for the table.


I am happy to announce my Valentine Tea Cup Giveaway!
This beautiful Royal Albert cup will be given away on Valentines day!
Isn't it lovely? I was looking for a cup that had red and pink in it and I found this cup. It has lovely detailing on the base of the cup. The gold trim really adds to the cups charm. If you would like to enter, just leave a comment and make sure you leave an e-mail.

These photos do not show the lovely raised pattern on the lower end of the cup.
The photos I took tonight do not show it off in it's best light.


Thank you all so much for stopping by today. If you would like to play along, create a post with your tea cup in it. Tell us about it, how you came to have it, who made it? We love to see the back stamp if you can get a pic of it. Then sign in below with Mr. Linky. Make sure you test the link once it is up!

My FREE Fairy School video tutorial series is now complete! Yeah! There is a button on the upper right bar that will take you to supplies, instructions and all the videos.

Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terri, I love your miniature tea cup so beautiful. I have a really small one too, I just love it. I also love your table and chairs, how sweet and the rug. I can't wait to see your room finished. i love your beautiful cup for your giveaway, the color is just amazing. Have a wonderful week and thanks again for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday. Hugs, Terri

Norma said...

That mini setting is adorable - can't believe the chairs are brown plastic beneath their chic exterior. Please let us see your dollhouse and tea rooms - a work in progress is just as intriguing as the finished project, always fun to see it coming together stage by stage.

And of course how can I not agree that Linda's "Petite Maison" is to be seen to be believed.

Kelsie From Our Country Home said...

Oh be still my heart...What gorgeous miniature china...You did a great job on the table and chairs and the rug is a wonderful complement to the blue in the dishes also...I do hope you will share the finished house and tea room when you are done.

I have a bunch of miniature food but alas it is all 1/6 scale and probably would be to big for your dollhouse which I would guess would be standard 1/12 scale.

Please enter me in the give away.

Blessings Kelsie

Terri, how very delightful and fun!! I could just shrink like Alice, and enjoy a lovely tea party at your table. I like the candle stick, table and chairs, and the beautiful rug, not to mention the wonderful tea set. Charming, every bit!

I do think the Valentine giveaway cup/saucer is lovely. If I win it would make a wonderful birthday gift.

Hi Terri, I am enjoying your blog so much.
Since I found this lovely world of tea blogs during Christmas, I'm hooked. Everyone is so kind and positive.
I'm learning so much about all things tea, but I especially enjoy the teacup presentations. It's like getting a surprise gift every time there's a new one. I really appreciate all the information about each one.
Your miniatures are so sweet. I really like the rug. It seems to pull it all together and makes me want to have a seat for tea and talk. Thanks for sharing your great blog.
Have a wonderful weekend, Carol

That mini setting is adorable - can't believe the chairs are brown plastic beneath their chic exterior. Please let us see your dollhouse and tea rooms - a work in progress is just as intriguing as the finished project, always fun to see it coming together stage by stage.
