Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha and myself.
I missed seeing you all last week as I was away on a much needed retreat!
My last post announcing the winners of my Milestones Giveaway also tells some of my trip.
And...my foray into soldering!
But for now, on to tea cups!
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner.
Are you Irish?
You don't need to be in order to enjoy an Irish cup!
I have never had a clover cup, but decided I need all the luck I can get!
What a sweet spring cup this one is!
Love the fluted cup!
Love the rippled lip!
This cup still has the maker foil sticker on it. Remember years ago, you were supposed to leave that sticker on? Or was it only us up in Canada who did that???
Royal Tara is a company I am not familiar with. So I was delighted to find this clover tea cup at a nearby antique center. This Irish company has been creating fine china for 50 years in Galway, Eire. I was unable to find backstamps so I do not know the age. It does not look old at all. Do any of you have Royal Tara in your collection?
Here are two tags that I have just finished. I really enjoyed the background process, of gesso, paint dabbers, stamping script and other Tim Holtz stamps, and then sanding it all down! I love the sanding!
If you would like to join in Tea Cup Tuesday just create a post with your tea cup in it and then come back here and sign up with Linky Tools below. Then we can come and visit you and see your beautiful china too! Yay!
