Tea Cup Tuesday-Thanksgiving


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday once again! Yay!
As you all know, Martha and I get quite thrilled with china, especially tea cups.
So, a couple or more years ago we set up this blog party, and it has been delightful!
I am thankful for Martha, for T.T. and all of you!

This time of year, I find myself getting nostalgic and full of gratitude.
There are just so many things to be thankful for!
It is wonderful that we have a holiday that is about Thank Full Ness.



My cup this week:
Old cup, but one I am so thankful for. It is a corset shaped cup and one of my favorite colors. I have set it by a new vintage sugar caster. I have never owned one of these before.


This sweet cup has such a lovely color of blue.


Sweet roses too.


It has this sweet handle with just a though of gold.


As you can see, it is an Aynsley, made in Stoke on Trent, England. This company is one of my favorites. They often do this corset shaped cup, in fact, I think this cup is from a series.
I have it in rosey pink as well.


This shade of blue can be hard to find. lately though I have been lucky and have found three new tea cups that I adore in similar shades of blue green.....and am saving to share later.


I really adore this caster! I have seen stunning ones in silver,
but this hand painted one really got my attention.
And of course, right now a silver caster would be very pricey!


The backstamp shows that it is made by Noritake, in Japan. This stamp in red was used up until 1938/9.
The M in the wreath is for Maruki. Gosh, it is older than me!


I am so thankful for my family and home, for my husbands work and my kids health.
I am grateful for my country, my friends and my neighbors. 
Words really can not express how full my heart feels today!

I am wishing all of you, the best Thanksgiving possible. May your heart feel full.

Thank you so much for visiting.
Hugs,
Terri

Teri - I really love this shade of blue green in teacups, too - and have recently come to find about four of them for my collection, Odd, not normally a color I'd go for, but when I've found them in teacups, it is such an arresting shade! This one you've featured is especially pretty - love the shape. The sugar caster, also unique - but what else would I expect from you!

Joy!
Kathy

Hi Terri~
What an elegant cup and colorful caster. I have a pewter Colonial style caster we bought in PA which I love. Your caster would make such a charming touch to the tea table. I like how you photographed the cup on the book page. Cute bleached tree, too! Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks again for hosting. xo

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi Terri: That tea cup is stunning as is your sugar caster. Yes, I was a school principal for 25 years. I was a much braver woman than. Where did she go? I want you to know, I am thankful for you in my life. You are one who has cryed with me. I am grateful for our friendship. Hugs, Martha

Johanna said...

Dear Terri,
the soft blue cup is a treasure and the sugar caster is just the right choice to it. I love the little rose inside the cup. What a fun to realize, that the china is older than you. chuckle. But from that you can see, well kept treasures have no age.
Best greetings, Johanna

The teacup is beautiful and I am discovering this particular color is fast becoming one of my favorite colors. Aynesley sure did make some of the nicest and most appealing teacups. Everything about that teacup seems perfect. Thank-you for hosting this Teacup Tuesday. Happy & blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours too !

Hi Terri, I love the color and shape of your tea cup. I also just found out about sugar casters by seeing your lovely caster.

My mother used to buy tea cups (yard/estate sales)for me when I was a first married. Somehow they have all disappeared in all of our moving ;( Oh how I wish I still had them!

I just want to let you know that I just now added your link to my post:) I had added Martha's but it was so late last night that I forgot yours. Thanks for hosting!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

xoxo Bunny Jean
