Tea Cup Tuesday-Flowers!

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today I am going to do my post a little differently.....
Summer time is here and I thought it would be fun to do a tea cup post
just about the beautiful flowers on my tea cups.

I am starting off with the gorgeous flowers in the above photo, which are on a beautiful Paragon cup. The vibrant and detailed flowers are gorgeous!

Here are some gorgeous pansies
on a demitasse cup from Germany.

Beautiful bouquet of flowers on this Foley.

More pretty boughs and posies of roses and flowers on another Foley.

Shelley....need I say more???

These chintzy flowers are on a very old Collingwood cup.

Artists flowers on this old James Kent piece.

Here are beautiful roses on a vintage Royal Imperial cup.

Here is a bright chintz floral from James Kent.


Lovely pastel chintz flowers on this Rosina cup.


A gorgeous cup by Meander BV, actually, this is the plate! It was easier to photograph.

Beautiful flowers on this Queen Anne cup.

These lovely roses adorn a Royal Grafton cup.

This cup has the most stunning color of yellow and green flowers! It is on a Royal Albert Blossom Time Series cup called "Laburnum".


Martha and I are enjoying visiting each of you and seeing your lovely china.
I want to take a moment to thank you for your visits and your kind comments.
I appreciate your visits!
If you would like to play along, just go and create a post with a tea cup in it. Tell us about your cup, how you got it, where it came from, and show us the backstamp...we love seeing it too. Then come back here and link up below.

I am wishing you all a creative and imaginative summer!
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terri -

These are such beautiful flowers. Its amazing how much detail is in these little portraits. I know the amount of work that goes into making those flowers. My sister is an artist and she paints the most gorgeous flowers on porcelain.
Thank you so much for sharing with us.

What a great idea...I feel as though I have just been on a walk through the most beautiful garden. Isn't it wonderful to have such beautiful flowers to enjoy inside when the weather is not friendly on the outside? Thank you for sharing your teacup treasure.

Hello, I love your blog and your projects, I used your tutorial to make the elegant shoes.
THANKS

Kell Belle Studio said...

Hi Terri,

I just popped over to mention that I posted your elegant shoe tutorial over on the Kell Belle Studio blog and hope you'll come by for a peek.

Your work is gorgeous and such a visual treat to look at. These floral patterns on your china are exquisite especially close up in such vivid detail.

Wishing you a whimsical Wednesday.
