Tea Cup Tuesday-Lady Carlyle


Hello All! Welcome to our Tea Cup Tuesday!
Martha and I share a love of tea cups, and really, all things tea. We totally love coming and seeing your beautiful tea cups each week and so you have all blessed us! Isn't it delightful to focus on things that bring you in touch with your own inner joy? I think so! Tea cups and having tea are pure delight to me. Sharing it with Martha and you all???? PRICELESS!

I owe the showing of today's cup to Carrie at Oak Rise Cottage who shared her Lady Carlyle tea cups last week and reminded me of mine and how much I enjoy it. She showed both the Avon shape as well as the Malvern. My cup is the Malvern shape although I love the Avon more.

As you can see it is a cup full of gorgeous color!


It sits pretty on it's pedestal base simple adorned with two gold rings.

I do so love the pink and cornflower blue in the flowers within the beautiful rose pattern

These pretty flowers adorn the inner cup.

I find the plate a work of art! Just look at that pattern!


Of course, it is Royal Albert! Doesn't it just look like a Royal Albert cup?
The pattern name "Lady Carlyle" is perfect for it.

I am having a giveaway (shameless promotion!) to celebrate my new class at Creative Workshops! Yay again! (see below for promo video)
I never knew I would be teaching classes online, and I know I am going to love it! I know some of you have signed up and I am so excited to have the opportunity to create with you!
Click here to enter my giveaway of a Domino kit I put together from my own art stash!

I must say, I am feeling a little guilty for having a video that isn't free, after two and a half years of free only! Someone commented on my Youtube page that they were sad I wasn't having free ones anymore. But I am ! I will do more for free.
I love doing that too!



This vase of flowers looks so lovely! The weather has cooled here some, and the roses are much happier! We will have roses for another month before it gets cooler.
Flowers are such a gift! They too connect me with my JOY!



Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today!
Martha and I would love for you to join in, just pick out a tea cup to share and tell us about it in a post. Then come back here and sign up with Linky Tools below. If you don't have a tea cup, you could go look at Martha's website Pretty Vintage Things, she sells beautiful tea cups!

Hugs,
Terri

Terri, may I use the very top image in a watercolor? I will give you credit via name, links etc. It is the perfect composition and just stunning and inspiring!!

Hello Terri,
As always, you share today a wonderful cup. Royal Albert is really one of the maker with the most beautiful patterns. And both shapes are feminine and elegant. Alas, there is from Royal Albert in Germany only a few patterns listed.
Your domino kit looks nice and one who can make those little books will be very happy. I have seen in former times some of your videos. But I have the problem that I can't hear the sound, because my computer has a problem. So it is difficult to understand.
Wish you lots of fun and success with your classes.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Terri,

I simply adore the Lady Carlye teacup. Eventhough I have lots of beautiful teacups in my collection, I'm always drawn to this cup. It really is a work of art!

Your fresh roses are so beautiful!

Thanks for sharing!

Blessings, Darlene

Your Lady Carlyle teacup is beautiful. I love the pretty pink color and pattern. Sipping from a Lady Carlyle cup at The Old Curiosity Tea Shop made my July tea there even more special.

That pretty glass vase is perfect with those gorgeous roses from your garden.

Thanks for the link to Creative Workshops - your class looks great!

Your Lady Carlyle teacup is very beautiful. This is so my style...lots of feminine floral. You should never feel bad to try a new venture. Your art is so fabulous you should get paid for your work. Yes, it is nice to also learn for free however right is right. Blissful week dear...

What a lovely cup! I adore the mini flowers on the inside, there is just something so wonderful about drinking your tea out of something that has touched such delicate art.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.

Now I am off to make some tea on this rather dreary rainy day. Wish I had the lovely cup you shared to drink it out of.

Hugs
Caro

All of that beautiful floral detail is what brings out the artist in me...it makes me want to go straight into my studio...and start painting something pretty!

maybe that's why I collect tea cups to begin with? who knows why the passion is there, it's just a good thing that it is! am I right, or am I right!



ciao bella

congratulations on taking the step toward online classes....I am not yet brave enough to teach online...you are an inspiration!

Lady Linda said...

This has to be one of my favorite teacups I've ever seen. WOW!
Linda

Marianne C. said...

The Lady Carlyle cup/saucer is so beautiful! I agree that the bouquet pink and blues go so prettily together. And the blue foxglove inside the cup flouncing their pretty heads seem to quietly announce 'I'm here, I'm here".

Enjoy the day,
Marianne

Heather said...
