Tea Cup Tuesday-Tea And A Good Book



Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday once again!
How are you all doing this week? 
Hopefully you are all well and enjoying moments of beauty,
peace and healing.

Today I am lucky to be able to show you a new tea cup I found this afternoon.
I popped in a local tea shop just to see their collection of cups for sale.
I didn't expect to find one,
especially not in my favorite color!

but i did.

She is such a dignified upright cup!
Just look at the way she stands so tall and  holds her handle,
if that doesn't say "confidence" I don't know what does :  )

....yet, maybe there is more to her than just looking good on the outside?


aaaah....yesssss.....we get a peak of her inner beauty......


and once you truly get to know her you are blessed with her full loveliness!


Even her plate is precious. 


I must admit, I was surprised she was and Albert girl!
She must be around my age.....


Time to enjoy!


...a cup of tea in a beautiful cup and a new library book....


...and some gluten free chocolate chip cookies...

SimpliciTea!

Thank you so much for coming over to visit me today. I love hearing from you all!

If you would like to join in, just create a post with a tea cup in it you would like to share,
then come back here and link up below with Linky Tools.

Martha and I are having so much fun each week visiting all of YOU!
It is amazing to me how we sometimes all post daffodils, or pink cups...
It is like we are all connected : )

Hugs,
Terri

I love this post. Tea & books what a wonderful combination.

Gorgeous tea cup and your photo editing is awsome.

A cup of tea always gives me comfort, a time to rest and most of all something to enjoy any time any where.

Love,

What a luck for you, to just have a look, and then come home with this beauty, dear Terri.
I am also so in love with the colour and that sweet golden patterns on the outside, and whom (of us) can get too many beautifull flower bouquets on our cups :-) Not me!
Wish you a happy day, with your new cup ,tea, and a cosy hour with both.
Hugs,Dorthe

Dear Terri,
isn't it like having birthday when you find such a treasure. The cup is sooooo beautiful. Love the soft aqua color, the luxury gold trimming and the flower bouquet inside. It confirms my meaning - Royal Albert has the nicest cups. Thank you for sharing your new find and for hosting this event.
Best greetings, Johanna

You're right Terri!
Tea and a good book...and also some delicious cookies ;)... are a perfect association!

It's a treasure!

WOW! Royal Albert is going to be my new favorite. This tea cup and saucer has so much style! I know she must make you feel very special. How could she not. The color is breath taking and her design is not only classy on the outside, but very sweet and delicate on the inside. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL set.
I'm so excited! I'm learning so much from you wonderful ladies about tea sets!

A cup of tea and a good book - nothing better. :-) Your new Royal Albert teacup is gorgeous - I love the color and the shape.

The Sugar Queen does sound like a fun book, at least from the reviews I've read.

Sweet Pea said...

Royal Albert is quickly becoming my favourite...this is such an exquisite colour. Thanks again for the chance to share 'tea'.

Terri, although I'm not a Tuesday Tea lady, I enjoy your blog posts so much every week. I love the tea cups and treats. Don't you love it when you find a "surprise" image at the bottom of your cup? I have a set of tiny Japanese tea cups and when you hold one up to the light you can see an image of a lady on the bottom. It was created during the cup firing. Enchanting!
The book looks to be a wonderful read, and I will have to check it out. Have a beautiful week, sweet friend!
