Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday...hosted by myself, and Martha from Martha's Favorites. Both of us are having a wonderful time sharing our tea cups and visiting you and seeing your beautiful tea cups. My Cup today is from France. I picked it up at a huge antique mall a few weeks ago. The bold aqua color caught my eye...and since it was bargain priced, I brought it home!
It does seem plain from some angles...
Until you look directly across from the handle and you find this gorgeous "S"!
And this bamboo style handle is really stunning with the coloring and gold trims.
This gold design on the inner rim looks hand done to me.
All in all, I am glad I found it!
Here is the backstamp. It is from France, and the crown stamp is really lovely, but I don't recognize this symbol. Maybe some of you do? It could be a very popular brand and I wouldn't know it!
(Now before I forget...I must remember to tell you that I am having a month long giveaway! Yes! I will be having at least 6 items to win!!! I will be posting all about it June 1st!)
I am participating in a really fabulous swap at Marie Antoinette Mail Art Ning group, a Tea Cup book swap. We are all sending in 4 pages, we create a page for ourselves as well as a cover.
This below is my cover page.
Aqua is such a beautiful color! I really loved working with this color scheme.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Some of my Blogger issues have been fixed...YaY!!!
I am hoping this post goes well too. I have missed visiting your blogs in the past two weeks or so, I could comment on some, but then not on others. Hopefully today I will be able to comment on every ones blogs.
If you would like to join in on Tea Cup Tuesday, please create a post with a tea cup in it that you would love to share. Then come back here and link that post to Mr. Linky below. Just fill in the two blanks.
