Happy New Year!
I have been travelling for 13 days,
visiting relatives over the holiday.
Internet was spotty, hence my late tea post!
My Tea Cup Tuesday is a little different tonight.
After two weeks of eating delicious food that is not usually on my menu,
I am ready to start the new year with some cleansing teas!
And these tea cups are just right for it.
These two cups are unusual for me as they are not fancy English cups,
But they do have a beauty all their own.
I love the color of this one above,
It comes with a lid as well as a wonderful strainer insert.
I do love the craze in the glaze.
I found them in a little book store in my town.
I do not know anything about this kind of pottery...maybe some of you know how to date them?
..... it could be Chinese or Japanese.
And this little one is sooooo sweet!
It is such a lovely design.
It fits so nicely in the hand....
It also has a insert to strain your tea and a sweet lid.
My daughter did try to read this one(she tried the one above too), she speaks Japanese,
but it is not clear enough.
Do any of you know a good resource for backstamps (impressed or incised) on these types of cups?
On holiday I did find two new tea cups as well as a sweet tea pot,
which I will begin sharing next T.T. post.
Thank you all for your holiday wishes.
Martha will not be joining us this week as she is very busy with family.
If you would like to join in, just link your post with a tea cup in it to the link below.
My next post will announce the winners of my December Giveaway, so keep posted : )
