Tea Cup Tuesday and my Mistake


Hello All!
Welcome to another Tea Cup Tuesday!
Last week I shared a cup with you that was a mistake! You were all so kind and did not even tell me that the photo of the back stamp was not the same cup as in all the rest of the photos!
I had taken pictures of two different green cups and mixed them up! So the mystery cup of last week was actually this cup here today!
I apologize for my mix up.

This is the simple cup that was made by a company
no one has any information about.
It is a simple, but pretty vintage cup.
It has a plain loop handle with a little touch of gold. And if I had to guess,
I would put it around my birthyear, 1959.
It has plenty of little cinder marks on it...it was not made carefully. But I love it, I love the green color. I love the gold filigree trim.

I would have never put these two color of roses together, but on this cup, it looks quite nice.
We have been having dark winter days here, and I have been finding it difficult to photograph in natural light. The colors above are a little harsh. The cup is prettier in "person"!


And as you can see it was made by Royal Imperial, in England.
My favorite tea for this cup is English Breakfast. Mmmmm, with cream and sugar!

Now, this next item below is a gift I received this Christmas from one of my sisters. Isn't it beautiful! But it is not a cup.....

It is a very classy cream soup bowl! I love it, I have wanted a cream soup bowl!


My sister bought one for each of us girls in our family.

It has very pretty detailed gold designs on it.

And as you can see, it was made by KPM.

Thank you so much for coming by and visiting.
If you would like to share one of your teacups with us please sign up below with Mr. Linky.
Martha and I have been hosting this party for 10 months now, and we will be having an anniversary soon. I think that would be a perfect time for a tea cup giveaway!


I want to let you know, that the crepe paper I use in my Crepe Paper Flower video is now available (after a long drought) at Paperwhimsy.com. This is so fab, it is very stiff crepe paper and lends itself well to flowers. It comes in three colors, pink, blue and cream, all in one package. Paperwhimsy has the most gorgeous high quality images available.
It is worth a trip over there to the shoppe to see!

I also have some new videos all ready to debut this weekend.
Hugs to you all!
Terri

Beautiful cups and the bowl is gorgeous, it must me nice to have a nice soupe in a bowl like that, so chique! And I love your flowers, looking forward to the videos!

Very pretty cup Terri and the soup bowl is indeed elegant. I am finding I am making loads of batches of home made soup in this cold weather - it warms the heart.

I love your flowers. I must try and get hold of some of that crepe paper, not sure I will be able to get it in the UK though.

Happy Tuesday

Hello Terri,
how amazing that there is no information about the maker of this beautiful cup. But I didn't find any, also. And the cream soup bowl is so lovely. It will make a beautiful tablescape. Have a nice time,
Greetings, Johanna

Hi, Terri,

What a lovely cup and saucer. Again the colors are so pretty, and it really doesn't matter that it wasn't made so carefully...we all have some imperfections, yet look how much we have to offer.

Your sister has beautiful taste, and the cream soup bowl set is wonderful..perfect colors for the season. Enjoy, and let us know what kind of soup you make for it.

I hope you are feeling much better,
Marianne
