Tea Cup Tuesday-Rose Beauty


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha, and myself. 
It is a stormy week here...
Heavy clouds that make it look like evening instead of morning
have been hanging around all day, with some impressive displays 
of torrential rain.
I enjoy it all very much.


I chose this beautiful rose tea cup to honor the roses
 that have just bloomed in my garden this week. 
They smell divine! 
I even have some peonies that smell just as heavenly.


 I love the unique shape of the cup. 
This is one of my few trio sets. 


This cup has gorgeous roses strewn all over it. 
The colors are so intense.
The handle reminds me of an elf ear...
or at least the elf ears depicted in stories and movies. 
I apologize to any elves I may offend with this statement!


....a piece of art really....


This beauty was made by Hammersley as it shows in this backstamp.
George Harris Hammersley shared in a china co begining in the late 1800s.
Spode eventually bought Hammersley, and they no longer use this name.
We can also see from this stamp that the pattern name is 
Morgans Rose.
I love it when the name is on the bottom : )

***************************************


Last T.T. I shared that I decided to create a space in my garden to have tea
after being inspired by a image on Pinterest.
It is a big project, and I thought I might share my progress with you all.
Which was a good reason for Martha and I to host a special blog hop!
If you too have been wanting to create an outdoor tea space maybe now is the time?

Many of you have already shared that you too will be sharing your own 
My Garden Tea!
Yay!
Martha and I am excited to share our garden tea with as many of you as can join in.

Go HERE to see the post with details and my inspiration photo!

This week has been fun as I have set a low budget to do this...
Here is my progress so far.


I found this table and chair very cheaply at a Goodwill.
The table was stinky....phew!
Didn't realize that till I was driving home in the car! lol!

 And one more chair...for my daughter.
This one has lovely detail and a soft seat.


Two different styles, but I like it that way. 
I decided on chalk paint,
I didn't realize there is no need to sand. 

My hubby did take this one apart and fixed her broken areas well.
Now it is stronger than ever!
Yay!


First coat of paint was Old White
and the second Louie Blue
both by Annie Sloan.

I will be sharing more pics of the outcome soon.
The table is close to being done as well. 
I am thinking of the tent...and still needing a brilliant idea!

I am also contemplating the look of the tablescape...
Pinks?  Blues? Chintz? 

I hope you are all well and enjoying this week,
Thank you very much for stopping by for a visit!

Hugs,
Terri

To join in Tea Cup Tuesday...
just go and create a post with a tea cup in it that you would like to share...
if you can share the backstamp... Martha and I would be extra thrilled!
But not necessary.

Dear Terri,
the Hammersley tea cup is really amazing. Lovely shape and beautiful decoration. I think all elves would eb happy to have such sweet shaped ears. I am so curious for the upcoming event. Will be a big party. The first additions look really good. Thank you for sharing and thanks for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hello Dear Terri
What a gorgeous trio set of roses!
Are the roses on the table the ones that have just bloomed? You must be totally overjoyed having waited so long for this!
Love the idea of the garden party. I would so love to take part but am putting my energies into my dear friend, Andrea's health issue.
What a lucky girl you are to have received all those little treasures from dear Dorthe. Her angels are just exquisite.
Sending hugs dear friend,
Suzy

Sylvia said...

What a gorgeous teacup, I love the shape of it and the name. Now I'll be looking for one since my granddaughters name is Morgan. Wouldn't that be a nice gift for her.

Flora said...

Dear Terry,
We are following with concern the weather situation in the Midwest. I am very saddened by this disaster, and the idea of ​​sharing a good cup of tea is now even more comforting ...
You know I love the tea trio, and your no exception: it's beautiful.
I can not wait to see what they manage to do in the garden, but the first ideas are promising :-)
Lovely hugs,
Flora

Good morning Terri,
What a pretty trio! I love the roses and the name on the bottom. You have found some nice items for your garden tea. I am not sure if I can do a garden tea or not. It really depends on how my back is at the time. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Lucille said...

Hi Terry! Time goes so quickly. Another Tuesday rolling by! I love your display of roses in a bowl alongside that beautiful rose tea cup and plate. I like that handle, rather original! Your chairs are lovely! You were so lucky to find them. I can't wait for the reveal. It will be such fun!

Marianne C. said...

A gorgeous cup, Terri. And the roses on the table match the roses on the cup...so very delightful to relax with.

Your chairs are going to be wonderful. Love their curves and designs.

Have a wonderful day,

Marianne xo

Felicity W said...

Love the chair on the table.
The slender and the curve of feet are elegant.

I am sure your tea garden party will be a success.

So beautiful Terri and really looking forward to seeing your garden tea. How about the flowers depicted in your lovely china strung on fishing line for the tent? I am dreaming of how beautiful I know whatever you come up with will be! =)

That really is a piece of art, so beautiful!
Makes me wish I had more tea cups to show off ;)

khess136 said...

Your purchases are so lovely, Terri. They have great "bones" and I can't wait to see the final results! Isn't ASCP a dream to work with? I have kitchen cupboards in our guest house that will be a project this summer...going to paint them with French Linen.

Tea in Texas said...

Hello Terri! Glad your roses and peonies are blooming and you can enjoy their frangrance. Your Hammersley cup and saucer with the dessert plate is gorgeous. I love all the beutiful rose designs and when the name of the pattern is included. The idea of a tea spot in your garden sounds lovely. I love our patio with the table and chairs plus the setting area. It is wonderful to have a time to have tea, treats and watch the dogs playing. Each of your chairs have a beautiful design and it is wonderful you are sharing the process. I look forward to the next update. Thanks for hosting!

Dorthe said...

Dear Terri,
that cup is so gorgeous with the flowers so beautiful, and in such amazing colours- and truly it has "elf ear" handle sweet friend :-)
Your rose busches must be so beautiful.. the ones you show here looks gorgeous and I love that deep red colour.
And what lucky finds for your garden tea party, I love both chairs- and yes I would say, a tiny blue-more pink, and ofcourse chinz , lol,lol- oh it will look divine Terri, and how I would love to take part, but have to wait till next year with such lovely happenings, when I have closed my shop for good!! Then no more turists around my home and shop (on same property) !! and then more time for other more sweet things to do !
Thankyou for your wonderful comment on my blog- dear friend- there will be a little answer one of the dayes !!
Hugs and love, Dorthe

Christine LeFever said...

I SO love Renaissance Revival, and that is, I believe, what the beautiful chair is that you have for your daughter.

The Annie Sloan chalk paints are marvelous. We use them here on many items for our purposes in selling prettily painted furniture. The chair you've painted in the Old White and Louis Blue is stunning!

And of course, your teacup is beautiful too.

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Terri, I'm really excited to see how your new tea table and chairs will end up like. It all seems so lovely. The beautiful tea cup has got in amongst me and now all I can see is a shiny, rosy chintz for the chairs. lol. What am I like? :)

Hello Terri
I like the pattern of your trio set. The Royal Doulton store near us sells them and I've been so tempted to treat myself some day.
I am looking forward to seeing your spot for tea in the garden. Guess I'm lucky my hubby built me a tea house which is just a roof over a wooden platform but it's mine to decorate and enjoy.
Thanks for hosting.

These fresh flowers from your garden are very beautiful. The teacup and double plates is delightful and perfect with your bouquet. Looks like you will have a really fabulous tea setting with table and chairs. I love the blue color. Blissfully sipping tea...

Ruthie Miller said...

Dear Terri,
I love, love, love your teacup!!! It has the prettiest combination of colors in those roses. And your roses? Oh my, they are gorgeous. I am so glad you shared. I try every year to grow them but the deer eat them.
I like the name on the bottom too. I wish they had always done that.
Happy Day, Ruthie

Hola Terri
Preciosa taza con flores hermosas y de muchos colores, matices intensos como las rosas de tu jardín.
Me gustó mucho tu presentación del té. También las sillas y mesa que compraste para preparar ese encuentro que quieres organizar. Te felicito.
Un beso grande desde Argentina.
