Valentine Tea Cup Tuesday!

Happy Valentine's Day

A day for LOVE
How about a week for LOVE?
Or a year for LOVE?
I think I will choose a lifetime for LOVE!


Here is a sweet little cup I just found on eBay. eBay can be a lovely spot to find treasure.

I have never owned a Shelley before. With all the swirls and florals on this cup, it seems to be a very good cup for a valentine tea!

The Shelley china company created beautiful china. Their china is so thin you can see through it. Shelley's bone china clay mix had the highest percentage of ground bone of any china company. This company produced china from the late 1800's to the mid 1900's. Many consider Shelley china as the very best china ever created.

It has a very simple loop handle, but I love how it is painted pink!

See the lovely flowers and the swirls in the china itself?

Along with a nice cup of tea in my new sweet cup, how about a piece of delicious cake?
Mmmmmmmm

And now it is time for me to announce the winner of this lovely Valentine cup!
The winner is......

Terri Gordon!!!
I went to Random.org and put in 1-67, the number was 2 and she was the second person to comment.
Congratulations Terri!
Terri is an amazing artist and makes beautiful art.

Terri,
You have an incredibly charming blog. I have seen your face and name on so many i like and I don't know why it took me so long to get here. Anyway...I have thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

I wish I had a teacup collection. I will inherit the consomme collection that we have given my mother-in-law. one by one, until she had no room for more. I look forward to having it someday.

I love looking at your teacups but think my husband would croak if I started collecting something else! Thanks for letting me enjoy your and Teacup Tuesday!

Fondy,
Suz
