Tea Cup Tuesday-Pink

Happy Tea Cup Tuesday!
It is a murky day here...
Great day to cheer up with a cup of tea and a visit!

First I want to share with you the surprise Frieda Oxenham sent me last week...
This lovely rosey quilt hanging! 
I have long been an admirer of her needlework.
She creates the most amazing art quilts I have ever seen.
To see some more of her handiwork, you can visit her blog Frieda Quilter.
Thank you again Frieda! I really was surprised and I am sooooo thrilled!

For the moment, it is adorning the back of my slip covered couch in my art room. 
I think it looks very cheery there. And with our dark gloomy days of late, it is a real blessing.

Today I chose a pink corset shaped cup by Aynsley for my Assam, milk and honey.
This is one the first cups I bought when I began truly collecting.
I love the color and the shape as well as the tea rose inside.

And here is another pretty pink cup just for you.
Do you like herbal tea or Black tea?
sugar, honey, milk, or lemon?

I thought I would show you the Anysley stamp as it is interesting. 
So many different numbers.

It tells us when Aynsley was established, 1775
It gives us a pattern number 2225
And it may give us an artist initial with the R
The 28 must have to do with the date of manufacture, but I have yet to find the answer to that one.
I have seen Aynsleys online that have a 30 on them and the seller says it means they were made in the 30s. But I am not sure. My books do not address it. I am guessing though around 1940.
The Aynsley Collectors Society is a great place for more information about the long intricate history of the Aynsley family and their pottery.
But I did not see an explanation for the numbers on their site. 

And the lovely pale pink tea cup is from Foley China.
I do love Foley as well. They make such lovely china.
This cup was created after 1943.

The weather here has been unusually cold and wet.
We did have some nice days here and there of high 60s, even high 70s.
But lately very chilllllllly.
I took this image at the Sarah Duke Gardens on January 12.
That was our 22nd anniversary.
It was a lovely day.

Then last couple weeks....

We had two snows!
This little guy was very surprised!
So was I when I opened the door that morning.

Many of our trees are in bud, daffodils up,
and all of my herbs have survived so far....
I am still keeping my fingers crossed.
winter is not over yet.

I have been busy in my art room. It looked like a bomb went off in it a few days ago,
But this weekend I was able to clean out quite well.
Just in time for me to start more projects and dig out more stuff!
Gotta love the process : )

How is the weather in your area?

I am totally enjoying more jewelry creations and have a new class coming out at
Creative Workshops in April. I will let you know more about that as it gets closer.
And I am really enjoying Misty Mawn's online art class Face to Face. It is truly an amazing experience! It lasts an entire year. Her lessons are awe inspiring!
I am learning to "see" and draw! It's slow going, but worth it.
In April I am going to Art and Soul and will be having lessons with her in person. Yay!

What are you up to?
Tell me about you?

If you would like to join in and share your tea cups just create a post with your cups in it and then come back here and link that specific post to Linky Tools below.

Martha and I have been doing this party for a while now...
Many of you know and love Martha like I do.
She is in  need our prayers and healing thoughts.
She is going through a tough time.

We both appreciate you all very much.

Oh what gorgeous teacups Terri and you were so blessed to receive that beautiful little rose quilt. I just love rose quilts and have one in my Etsy right at this moment.
Your photography is so soft and pleasing to the eyes - just so serene!

Gorgeous photos, Terri. What a special treat to get that charming wall hanging in the mail- it is just so sweet! Your cups are gorgeous as usual, and I especially like the Aynsley. I really enjoyed the close-up of the pansy. Always a joy stopping by,

Hello Terri! I'm so glad to join your great party again.
I like your teacups a lot, especially that pink one (and your photos are fantastic!).
Good luck with your creations and your lessons, please share of those beauties you are doing with us!
Besos! Silvina

Love all your photos, Terri. I should photo & share the pink creamer & sugar set I have of my grandmothers.

Wow Terri...I don't know what I love more your tea cups or that gorgious snowy flower photo you took. What a stunning post!


relevanttealeaf said...

Good Morning Terri,
Your quilt hanging is beautiful, as are your Aynsley and Foley teacups.
Winter is alive and well in Michigan too - a big snow storm [7 inches] is coming later today. Good tea drinking weather!

Antiques And Teacups said...

Hi Terri...what a wonderful cheery post. The quilt is wonderful! We have had lots of wind, no snow. The number on the Aynsley is the shape number by the way....One of my fav Aynsley shapes. I love it! Pink is such a joyful color. Lovely post and thanks so much for hosting!

Two Cottages And Tea said...

Oh I love your pink teacup! Both are so special and perfect for a winter day! Your new quilt is so pretty and the colors just say spring! What a lovely gift. It's rainy here in Florida today and at home we have tons of snow and lots of snow storms this winter. Thank you for hosting your party and have a wonderful week!

Lucille said...

Hi Terri! The cups are lovely. My favourite is the darker pink one. I've never seen one like that and I find it so striking even though it's just plain pink. I guess I just love pink! As for the quilt, I enlarged the photo and I looked and I looked and I could not get enough of looking. What a precious gift you have received. What struck me the most are all those beautiful flowers and the beautiful pattern! I'm always telling myself that I am no longer saving favourites because I have so many that I'm feeling overwhelmed by them. But I could not resist putting this lady's blog in my favourites so that I can examine it thoroughly when I have a few minutes.

shannah said...

I love teacups! I got a really pretty one for my birthday last year at a Tea Room. I plan to go back next month for my birthday to enjoy another cozy cup for my birthday! Thank you for stopping by my blog and sending blog love! :)


xinex said...

Zaa said...

Hey Terri...I'm loving your pink cups and saucers...and what a gorgeous quilt..It just sort of cheers the soul , doesn't it... Lucky you ..Enjoy your day, sweet Lady...

scrappinnana said...

I just wanted to thank you for sharing your tea cups and the beautiful quilt. I love pink.


Dorthe said...

Dear Terri,
That pink teacup OH MY!!!! such a beauty, and the soft coloured one too- but not as pretty as the pink,though :-)
And what a fantastic gift- from your friend-so lovely and looking great on your couch ,like you say, lightening it all up.
Here the grass is to see again-which makes me happy-not that there are so many things blossumming as in your garden, but this winter has just been long. I hope your trees and busches and flowers survive the new cold, dear.
Hugs and love,Dorthe

Frieda Oxenham said...

Love the way you've pictured thise gorgeous teacups against the background of the little rose quilt. They really compliment each other beautifully.

High Heeled Life said...

Terri,what a lovely surprise to receive in the mail. We are still snow covered here, with a storm warning for this evening... you little floral darlings have been captured beautifully by your camera. Stay warm... xo HHL

Stephanie said...

Your photos are always so beautiful and captvating! The wall hanging is stunning - what a delightful friend you have :)

Have a wonderful week.


Marjanne said...

PINK, my favorite colour!! Winter was awfully cold and snowy here and it still seems to continue, no flowers yet....

Michelle said...

Such beautiful tea cups! I love Foley, too. That quilt is amazing. Frieda is very talented. Thanks for sharing! Michelle

Hola Terri

Gracias por venir a mi humilde entrada sobre la taza de té, es una honor para mí.

Tu taza color rosa es una preciosidad, la otra también. Tienes una colección maravillosa.

Yo estaba por comprarme una igual, cuando la vi me acordé.

La imagen de la flor con la nieve es sublime. Te felicito.

Muchos besos desde Argentina.

Felicity W said...

Love the quilt as the background. two shades of pink cups are so nice together. The colours blend in so well.


sharon said...

Oh, pretty in pink and just perfect to lift my spirits out of the frigid snow and ice that is now coming down outside! Your cups are amazing, I am learning so much from you about the histories. I am still not an experienced tea drinker yet. Your quilt from Frieda is just gorgeous! I am looking forward to your class too!!

KathyB. said...

I am not a "pink" person, but the pink teacups surely do give me cause to reconsider. They are lovely, and I almost covet them...

You have snow! I was hoping for a wee bit more winter weather because it enables me to justify staying inside and getting my wool crafting done. The weather here is warming up ( unseasonably) and the gardens are beginning to nag me, so I think tea times will be outside sooner than expected.

Your art room sounds like an explosion of creativity, and your blog shows it to be so.

Thank-you again for hosting Teacup Tuesday.

Unknown said...

Hi Terry I have a few of these Ansley corset cups they are pretty loving yours as well very much I have no room for newbies so sticking to what I have (this is all your fault I hasten to add ;0) I have always loved a tea cup & saucer and when I found your challenge I thought yes this is me. I must of lost you some where along the line out of my side bar as I haven't been for so long but it's so nice to be back and admire your goodies along with those other lovely ladies who share thanks for showing off your china xx

My Cottage Diary said...

Lovely post, Terri! Oh my, that sweet little quilt is so pretty! We have had a relatively mild winter and then recently had two major snowstorms 5 days apart. We are so thankful for the moisture, though. And that it wasn't ice! Blessings on you and yours. Bess

Michele M./ Finch Rest said...

Oh Terri, you have the most beautiful teacups and amazing photography skills!

Thank you for hosting, sorry I am a day late, but sometimes that's the best I can do! Hugs!

my cup of tea said...

I just adore pink teacups! You can never have enough!

Hi Terri! I just love your Anysley cup in that creamy pink color! I was thrilled when I got my first Anysley and have my eye on another one at the tea shop I frequent. The pink rose inside is a lovely touch! I admit to you I am feeling rather green about the art classes you are taking and only wish my week afforded me more time for my crafting arts. As a writer, I spend a lot of time crafting with words - and as a teacher - crafting children's hearts. But, how I love making things with my hands. So thankful for the inspiration your work is in my efforts.

cairncottage said...

Gorgeous quilt!! Your friend is VERY talented! Your pink and flora cups are sweet, too! I am looking so forward to spring flowers popping up, too! It's hard to wait this time of year. Have a wonderful day!

Love all your photos and especially the pink tea cup! I wanted to thank you for the loveliest comment you left me on my very first Teacup Tuesday post last week.

Sounds like you had a lovely Anniversary!
