Tea Cup Tuesday-Pink

Hello All!
Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday where Martha and I
go through our china and pick out some cups to share with you.

Today, I am sharing a beautiful cup with you that did not belong to me long, as I purchased it for a tea cup swap. I looked and looked until I found this one. I had begun to loose hope, but there she was...sitting pretty on a little doily in an antique shop....waiting patiently for me to come and choose her. I am hoping that she is very happy, and the lovely lady who received her is equally as happy.

She does have a very pert position, leading me to think she is a very proper cup.


Sent along some lovely chocolates, teas, honey, and tea strainer.


The deep red and pink roses are gorgeous.


The handle very curvaceous and sweet in gold trim.


I do believe Marie Antoinette may have enjoyed using a pretty cup like this one.


Here you can see her high gold footing.

 

Did any of you guess she was an Adderley?
I was surprised to see the backstamp when I turned her over, I think I was expecting Queen Anne. Artful 

Affirmations has had a makeover as you can see. I hope you enjoy it's new format.

Here is a mailbox I have created to hold all my Valentines!


I had so much fun making it,  I made a new video of it to share with you!

 

I hope you enjoy it : )

If you want to join in Tea Cup Tuesday, just go and create a post with your tea cup in it and then come back here and link up below with that post's URL. And then Martha and I and everyone else can come and see your beautiful tea cup too!

Hi Terri,
the new header is just perfect for Artful Affirmations. Love the colors and the style. I am sure the Lady who received this tea cup is very lucky. The tea cup is a beauty. All you do is so artful, the tea cup as much as the wrapping and the lovely Valentines box. Thank you for sharing your Video. I hope you will receive a lot of Valentines cards.

Such an elegant cup! How does one participate in a teacup swap? Sounds fun - don't you just love getting presents - but more the fun is planning and giving them! Sickness in my house today, Terri, so I've featured a Pinterest teatime - back in gear next week for Valentine's teatime!
