Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday where Martha and I invite you to visit and see our tea cups, and we hope we get asked over to your place to see yours! We love (really love) seeing your beautiful tea cups as well as stopping by to visit your blog.
Today I am sharing two tea cups and a tea pot. The first tea cup I have had for about 15 years. It is not a vintage cup, but about as old as I have had it. What drew me to it at the time was the large gorgeous rose! The cup is a very generous shape, so one does not have to refill it as often : )
The coloring on this cup is very pleasing, with such pretty botanicals!
The handle is a simple split loop and thumb spur without any adornment.
It was manufactured by Staffordshire China from England. But I found it at Ross For Less!
This is the matching tea pot. It is quite small considering the size of the cup!
Love this rose!
Here is the second cup. Very cheery yet perfect for fall with it's oranges, peaches and greens.
It also sports a unique "7" handle.
I am not sure what flowers these are supposed to be, they look like apple blossoms or rosa rugosa to me. What do you all think?
See the pale green edges? I do love this look! The inner rim of the cup has this same treatment only in pale pink. Also gorgeous! It is the little extra touches that make this cup unique.
This cup was created by Old Royal Bone China. Since it does not say "Made In" I am thinking it is before 1920. Do you agree?
I am so glad you were able to stop by!
Blogger has been iffy for me for months now, but I am not going to give up the ship. After thinking about it for quite some time, I figure any host is going to have issues, and I don't want to trade for different ones! I have seen a number of you bloggers out there thinking of leaving Blogger too. Hopefully they will keep working out the issues. So I can visit AND leave comments at your blog!
If you would like to play along with Tea Cup Tuesday, Please Remember, HAVE A TEA CUP IN YOUR POST! It is that simple. Most of you do this beautifully, but some lately have not had a tea cup at all or even just linked to a store page. I remove links that go to shops.
Sorry about this, but I need to do a little moderating.
If you have a tea cup you would like to share, then go create your post and then come back here and link that post to Linky Tools below. Then we can come and visit you! Yay!
I am having a giveaway to celebrate my new class beginning next Monday October 10th!
