Tea Cup Tuesday-Pink and Cream



 Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Martha and I am glad you are here today to share in our fun!
We have been seeing so many gorgeous tea cups,
and enjoying lovely inviting teas with dear bloggy friends!

If you are stopping by for my Grow Your Blog party post just scroll down to the previous post : )
or click HERE

Late this afternoon I made my self a pot of tea and sat down for a nice cup of quiet.



It was a truly lovely day, blue sky, crisp air
and the sun casting a warm glow over everything.


This pretty in pink tea cup had her debut today...
I found her on my Christmas Holiday travels.


Decaf Assam was my choice, from Tin Roof Teas.


A simple, pink, luscious handle.


I baked some gluten free chocolate chip cookies yesterday,
that are perfect for my break.


There are so many lovely flowers in this pretty cup,
I didn't feel I needed fresh flowers.


See the creamy pink lusciousness???

O.k. maybe I need therapy! Lol!


Mmmmm....love to set up tea trays!


Pretty pretty Pretty!




E.B. Foley is the manufacturer of this fine cup.
I think the pattern number is 2468, but I am not sure about the two ticks that follow.
I could only guess at an artists mark.


I do love to collect cream and sugar sets. Especially petite ones.
This cute little couple were sitting in an antique shop somewhere in Virginia.


What a sweetie!
She is only about 2'' tall at the very most.


And this tiny sugar bowl is  plain on the outside and beautiful on the inside!
Yes, those are larger than normal sugar crystals.
They are raw organic Turbinado sugar.
I like to use different types of sweeteners for different teas.


This beautiful tiny set was manufactured by Royal Chelsea.
Another fine British china company.


Thank you so much for stopping by for tea!
These past few years I have been spoiled by all your visits! 

If you would like to join in the tea cup fun,
just list your tea cup post link below with Linky Tools.
Then Martha, myself, and other tea cup enthusiasts can come over and visit you too!

Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terri,
Oh, what a sweet cup and saucer! I love the soft pink and the sprinkle of posies. You find the prettiest sets on your travels!
I got myself a tray just like yours today, only in black. My plan is to paint it white. Somehow black seems too harsh to set delicate teacups on. Thank you for sharing your new treasure with us and have a lovely week, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Such a lovely soft pink floral cup to sip a spot of tea in the afternoon. Yummy cookies and taking a break is so nice. That turbinado sugar looks good enough to eat! Taking care of yourself is a tip priority dear...

Oh Terri...how great it would be to sit on your pretty white sofa and have a "quiet" tea with you! of course I'm sure if we two were in the same room, there would be much talk of crafting and creating....and therefore NO quiet! heheee....

I love your pretty tea cup...and you use the same sugar as me!


thanks for your visit.

Terri,

Your teacup is gorgeous- such a sweet pink!

I love your little tea tray, sure makes everything taste better that way!

So, I didn't realize - you are glutton intolerant then?

Happy Tea Tuesday!

Thanks for hosting! Hugs.

Dear Terri,
Your tea cup is simply elegant with spray of flowers and with pale pink ground.

Happy 4th blog anniversary by the way.

Terri,how beautiful your little cream and sugar and teacup is. I would love to sit on your fresh white sofa and take tea with you. x

Johanna said...

Hi Terri,
if such wonderful tea settings are a reason for therapy, I am ready for that. I love the sweet creamy and pink atmosphere you created. Just the right touch of flowery decoration inmidst a winterly white surrounding. Thats White Living at its best, serene but with some soft color. The tea cup is wonderful and the little creamer/sugar-set is perfect for that. Would love to join you for this tea. Thank you for sharing and for hosting this nice blog party.
Best greetings, Johanna

BECKY said...

I just love that cup and saucer. The pale pink comes across as "soothing" to me, as does everything else in the beautiful photos! The mini sugar and creamer is so cute, too. I haven't participated in Tea Cup Tuesdays in SO long. Maybe I'll do a re-post, if that's okay!

bohemiannie! art said...

Beautiful, soft and makes me want new (old) china!

Maria Andrade said...

You keep finding lovely treasures, dear Terri!
The tea cup and saucer are so beautiful with the sprinkle of posies on that lovely pink! But the creamer and sugar are another beauty, a perfect match to it!
Your tea on the sofa breathes peace and calm, the perfect setting to relax in the afternoon...
Thanks for sharing it all.
Hugs

Cindy@NorthofWiarton said...

I always enjoy your posts Terri, as you never fail to make them inviting. I came across a breakfast tray a bit different then yours, however passed it to my Niece who had really wanted it.

Bonnie said...

Just stopping by for a visit while blog surfing. Your teacup photo grabbed me. I have the same one. I just arrived back home from a white-knuckle drive in a whiteout. Your photo made me decide that a hot cup of tea in a pretty cup is what I need right now :)

Thanks Terri for visiting me.
The tray with the tea and biscuits looks very lovely, and would be a nice way to enjoy your afternoon tea.
You asked where I live to be enjoying cherries... I live on Waiheke Island, New Zealand.
Happy day

Draffin Bears said...

I forgot to say how very pretty the teacup is, in my favourite colour of pink.

The French Bear said...

Terri, thank you for stopping by my blog, I love visitors!! I forgot to say that the teacup was Royal Albert, Jacobean......it's hard to find yellow cups. Of course that could be because my daughter loves yellow ones too!
I can't wait to share more teacups......it will fun to join in your Tuesdays!
Hugs,
Mags

Hi Terri,
Lovely Foley teacup! I love the pretty powder pink and cream color with the floral bouquet. I am also sharing a Rose Foley teacup this week for Sandi's 3rd Anniversary. Thanks for hosting. Wishing you a lovely week.

Annabelle said...

Oh Terri - what a delight to have tea at your home! I will definitely be here each Tuesday for these parties. Bone china is the ONLY way to drink tea but sadly it is served mostly in mugs nowadays. I despair at the lost style.

Betty Stapleton said...

Correct about the bone china is the only way to drink tea and that goes for the mugs too. They are okay as long as they are the bone china..
That a lovely dainty teacup and saucer, so pretty, thank you for sharing. God bless...

Kathryn Ross said...

Ooooo! Terri! I loved your teatime this week! Sneaking back into Blogland for a visit and hoping to post SOMETHING - even though I should be creating a lapbook project on the Underground Railroad for my students next week! Now - about your Foley cup - there are four of them (or very like) at my neighborhood teashop and I can't afford even one just now! No luxury spending for this little girl, I'm afraid. But, seeing them in person - I love the creamy texture of the outside color. And - gluten free chocolate chip cookies??? Where THAT recipe - I would love to have it! Blessings to you - always an inspiring visit when I stop by to see what you're up to.
Joy!
Kathy

[url=http://www.iystwowgold.com#wowgold]wow gold[/url], Initially, i like my own games gold! We have acquired him or her for roughly a whole year these days which are excellent cute and even fine. They go with quite a bit in doing my armoire, so they seem to be definatley a smart investment. What i too absolutely adore: this little feet are usually form of enormous and even diverse, i absolutely appeared to be worried first who games gold will make these seem actually bigger, though in which entirely was not the way it is! They also develop on your ft . and created our bait appear some finer. The things take part in absolutely adore pertaining to my own games gold: not too durable- they can really should not be maxed in the rain so it drains much of the coloring, knowning that is true for hail far too. But when you operate good these folks discuss mainly because substantial associated with a challenge. Moreover, convey them socks just like you don't they are begin to scent a tad, and can purpose bruises. In spite of this, the positives definatley surpass that side effects, so i needed reccomend these folks definitely.
I really like having games gold, and yet sometimes shouldn't bring in games gold in the rain or possibly snowfall simply because acquire ruined quite simply
Actually different games gold
Managed to get a lot of these [url=http://www.gw2golds.de]gw2 gold[/url] this coming summer we Really like him or her. They may be interesting and even sylish and may bring all of them with my personal jeans and my own sweat jeans. To start with I have done imagine that we were looking at any scam regarding their expense but they're DEFINITELY worth the item. The only way who will get aggravating might be that the flap on the side helps to keep continuing to fall. That i still recommed these even though!
i seriously liked the direction they appeared, however , perhaps purchasing a couple of shapes and sizes less significant next typical, the particular ft fitbut the actual leg-portion ended up being much too large. i thought overall i'd have the ability bring [url=http://www.gw2golds.de#gw2gold]gw2 gold[/url] at their comprehensive position,but way too much "slouching" designed that hopeless.
