Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha and myself...
Today the sky is heavy with dark clouds.
I had a challenging time getting some images of my tea.
So please excuse my awful exposure!
(I am borrowing the two images below from my archives)
Both of these cups I have shared before, the one above is a vintage 50s Paragon...
I just love the coloring and this sweet handle.
The X and two dots are interesting...
I think they may be artists mark...
or maybe signify seconds?
What do you think ladies?
This pretty cup also sports a fancy handle, and it is a German made cup.
Bavaria, Germany US Zone. This cup was manufactured during World War 2.
This company began in 1794 and was highly prized for it's designs by the Victorians. It's backstamp includes the Royal Coat of arms of Bavaria.
The initials were written on in permanent marker...
I am thinking the owner wanted to make sure no one took her cup home from the pot luck!
For a special treat, I am having some delicious gluten free brownies, that my dear hubby baked.
Chamomile tea will go beautifully with them!
I wish you could join me for tea!
The sun peeked out from the dark clouds for one minute, and a very optimistic birdie began singing loudly!
I think this bird has the right idea....
Take every opportunity to feel JOY!
If you would like to join in the tea party, just go and create a post with the tea cup in it you would like to share, then come back here and link the URL of that post to Mr. Linky below.
Martha and I would be delighted to come and visit you too!
