Welcome back to Tea Cup Tuesday!
And if this is your first visit... Welcome!
I missed you all last week and will be hopping double time today to see all your tea cups from last week and today. Recent challenges have been getting in the way of my blogging!
Imagine that! Lol!
Thank you all for your kind e-mails inquiring of my health. I appreciate your concern.
My cup today is a gift from my two youngest children for Mother's Day.
It does look fairly ordinary from the side, white and mint....
The decorative gold rings lends a vintage feel...
(I bet the handle has already told Martha the manufacturer!)
It is an elegant handle! I call it the Wings handle.
The plate is decorated with a lovely spring like spray of flowers.
But the best part is in the bottom of the cup!
La Mere is French for Maman or Mere for Mother...
This sweet cup with the fancy handle and scalloped edges will be a very special cup in my china cabinet!
This cup was manufactured by my favorite china company Paragon!
I have shared many cups from the company over the years we have had T.T.
And here is a sweet little cream and sugar set that I found at a local shop...
Very pretty shapes and florals...
This set is quite tiny, the sugar bowl holds maybe 1/4 cup.
The creamer as well might hold an 1/8th of a cup!
I love the wavy edge and the two little flower decorating the lip.
Royal Chelsea is another fine English company and they created this set.
Thank you all so much for stopping by to visit.
I will do my best to come and visit you soon : )
Upcoming posts on the results of our Downton Abbey ATC card swap, some new jewelry and my attempt to re vamp a chandelier from Goodwill!
Have a creative and joyful week!
