Tea Cup Tuesday-Last Roses of Summer


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Sandi At Rose Chintz Cottage is having a special Pink Tea
to support the awareness of breast cancer.
Most everyone, unfortunately, knows and loves
someone who has had this experience.
And our hearts go out to them.
Thank you Sandi!

Today I am showing a tea cup with vibrant pinks in it,
with a delicate pink rose on the side.

She works well for both spring, summer and fall seasons with her vibrant roses and 
autumn coloring.


The roses in golden yellow...


and pinky purples reminds me of the colored
leaves lying on my path during my walk earlier today.
I saw these very colors here 
mixed with green and black,
adorning the newly fallen leaves.

The brightly colored fall leaves are wondrously beautiful to me.

 
 Her "fancy 7" handle...
I made that one up : )
 

 This lovely trio was manufactured by Hammersley.
An English Pottery that was located in Stoke On Trent, England. 
The pattern name is Morgans Rose....
handily supplied here on her backstamp.

Hammersley was a fine company that began in 1887.
George Harris Hammersely had worked with another potter before
beginning his own company Hammersley and Co.
Spode is now the owner of this old firm,
and you no longer see their backstamp anymore.


It has been dark, rainy and misty here for a while now.
I took this image last week, the leaves had not yet begun to turn.

After such a wet summer, I really am surprised at the wet fall too.
Who knows...maybe there will be *snow* this winter?
Yay!

I am re-organizing my art room....
Nothing like the scale of Martha's redo,
but if you don't hear from me in a week...
send somebody in to find me ; )

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!
I am away from home and will
be a little late maybe in visiting you all,
but I will be there for sure soon.

Please remember to have your annual checkup : )

Hugs,
Terri

I like your teacup with the roses Terri. After my walk this morning I stood admiring the carpet rose bushes along the front walkway that are still blooming, and loaded with buds.
With all the rain we've had this summer, I'm thinking we'll have a lot of snow during winter. To be expected here, but sounds exciting for you.

Hello Terri,
What a pretty teacup you have chosen for this post! The Hammersley name is one that I do not have in my collection. I guess I simply haven't run across one yet. The colours of the roses are perfect for all three seasons just as you said. Thank you for sharing this beauty with us. I love Tea Tuesdays! Enjoy your week wherever you are, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

This cup and saucer and plate are very pretty. I have never seen these pieces and you have a real treasure! Just lovely!

Tea in Texas said...

What a beautiful teacup and saucer with hues of velvety roses. The elegant shape of the "7" has pretty gold trim. Hammersley has always been a wonderful designer of tea sets and this pattern is a great example! Have a terrific week!

Hi Terri,
I loved the tea set you chose for this special pink tea with the vibrant roses and the "fancy 7" handle. It's really beautiful and your last photo is amazing!
I also found very interesting the information about Hammersley & Co.
Have a great week!
Hugs

My o my is that a pretty tea cup. How elegant is the shape and the decoration is just wonderful. To be honest, I have never heard Hammersley before but it high quality as I can see. Thank you for sharing this wonderful autumn roses, dear Terri. And for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Karen said...

Hi Terri,
I love your Hammersley teacup trio today. It is just beautiful and I think the close up photographs are amazing. I must learn how to do better photos. I hope that you have a wonderful week. Take care,
Karen

This is a very delicate teacup. It does remind me of summer on that rainy day.

Kathryn Ross said...

Hi Terri! Best to you on your art room re-do. I seem to be doing that on a weekly basis of late. Tried to make things work in the basement room - but I need windows. Currently, I've redecorated my living room and dining room and such clever little spots my art supplies are tucked in so I can set them out and put them away in a trice! My back sewing room keeps the lionshare of things - but comfy work in the center of my home is where inspiration happens.

Your cups are stunning - as usual. I love your photography - always inspiring. Joy to you as you move forward in this season!
Blessings!
Kathy

Hi sweetie! I know I've said this before (because they really are all beautiful) but I think this little beauty is right up there on the top of the pretty teacup pile for me! :) I just love it!!! I also love your misty picture. I hope you get through your studio clean up alright. I actually enjoy a good straightening sometimes, but then I can't find anything for months! xoxo :D

Marjanne said...

love this cup and the almost finished roses, c'est la vie...and it is as beautiful as a fresh rose.
We had not only a beautiful summer but a real "indian summer" the last weeks.. but nou it is getting colder and rainy... I wish you a very beautiful weekend!

Lady Linda said...

Hi Terry, oh I do believe your teacup is one of the most lovely I have seen in a long time. How perfect for the last rose of summer. Your pix are the best! What kind of camera do you use?
Nice and warm here ...in the 70's! Sunny too,so it's just so wonderful.
Love,
Linda

What could possibly be better than teacups and roses combined?! The teacups are heavenly.

J'étais émerveillée en parcourant votre blog, voir d'aussi belles tasses à thé m'a épaté. Félicitations pour touts ces beautés.
J'ai vu aussi un très beau "tea cosy" que je collectionne moi aussi.
Cordialement. Babette
