Tea Cup Tuesday-Yellow Roses to Brighten the Wintry Day

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
It was a dull winter day today,
Not cold, but dark and rainy...
Perfect for a cup of TEA!


Here is a cup that I found on my holiday trip.
Isn't she bright and cheery?
She wears a pale pink outer coat,
and lovely yellow roses adorn her within.


Her dainty handle has a lovely leaf relief design.
The simple gold trim adds a little extra elegance.


The roses are a deep yellow, very charming in "person"
and perfect to bring joy to a winter day.


Royal Grafton is the manufacturer, one of my favorite companies.
A.B. Jones and sons began this company in the 1900s,
in Staffordshire Potteries at Longton.
This cup's mark shows us a date of 1957-1961.

Martha and I are really loving visiting all of you!
If you have a tea cup you would like to share, or if you want to share a post
with a tea cup somewhere in it, or a poem about tea,
or anything about tea cups and tea...just link it up below...
and we will stop by for a visit! 
Yay!

I also wanted to let you know that the post office lost two weeks
of our mail while we were away. 
If you sent me a card or box during the holidays, and you have not heard from me,
then it may be that I did not receive it. I am sooooo sorry!
Please let me know so I can thank you. 
 I appreciate you all!

Hugs,
Terri

What a scrumptious teacup, Terri! I love the cheery yellow roses with the soft pink; very pretty! It's a lovely shape too. Thank you for sharing and enjoy your new week. Hope you're getting rested up from your travels.

WOW, Terri- the artwork on that gorgeous teacup is so lifelike!

I think it is stunning, I really do.

Love this party, hope to find time tomorrow to post something, but had my women's club meeting today and being an officer - set up, meeting, tear down.....takes hours.....so blog time.

I DO have a giveaway, but it isn't a tea item. Let me know if you want me to include it and I shall - it's girlie and tea ladies may like it.

Hugs.

Lovely choice for brightening Winter. Yellow is very sunny cheerful. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

BECKY said...

Terri, that tea cup is exquisite! Pale pink on the outside and then the beautiful yellow roses inside! And I'm so sorry to hear about your lost mail! Gosh...I'm pretty sure I sent you either a note card or Christmas card! Even though I didn't get many sent this year, I think I did! I'll have to look in my notes! Please stop by my blog. I'm having a book give-away!

Glad Martha is back, tried to comment on her post, but can't find where to leave it.
God bless and have a great week.

Oh thanks so much Terri and Martha for making the icon right for me for the link.
I was cropping the pic and did not realize it was not properly cropped.

Love your royal grafton cup. The color of the rose is special. It's neither yellow nor orange. it's something in between.

Dear Terri,
what a shame that the post office lost your post. I am so sorry for all the nice cards and gifts, which may be have been sent to you and did not arrive. May be they find them sometimes. Your tea cup is so pretty. I love the scent of tea roses and that looks for me quite like one. They have a peachy touch on the petals. Tea roses are just the right for tea times, aren't they? I hope winter hurries up and will leave early. I am so in spring mood. Thank you for sharing this wonderful china and for hosting this charming event.
Best greetings, Johanna
