Tea Cup Tuesday-Favorite Tea Cups of 2013!

 
Today I have chosen to share just a few of my favorite tea cups from last year......
The above cup...a pretty Foley cup, from 1948-1963.
I found her in Savannah last summer. 
This cups brings good memories : )



One of my favorite Paragon tea cups.
The gold trim is elegant and the lovely fruit and flowers so cheery.
She is a regular at my tea table.


This calm aqua cup always looks lovely.
She is a Foley as well as the first cup.
Her quiet beauty suits a summer day.

 
And of course this sweet little Rosina cup. 
Pure vintage sweetness in a waisted footed cup.

All my cups are my favorite though. Lol!
Every time I try to choose a top 5,
the lists change. 
 
 
I am hoping this summer will be more amenable to my tea tent Bertha. 
There were only a few times I was able to put her up and enjoy. 
Hopefully this year she will get plenty of use!
Do you have any special tea party plans this year?
 
Here is to many lovely tea parties in 2014!
 
Hugs,
Terri

Terri, I too love those teacups. Each one is an exquisite work of art. I love aqua and pink and the Paragon dressed in all her golden splendor is stunning. Thank you for sharing some favourites and have a beautiful day, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

From Japan.
"Washoku" traditional Japanese cuisine was added to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list Wednesday, raising the government's hopes of enhancing its global recognition, attracting more foreign tourists and boosting exports of the country's agricultural products.
This is "Washoku," traditional dietary cultures of the Japanese!-

I love teacups with strawberries on them! Yours is lovely! I am planning a Mad Tea Party in July and I love your tea party tent. I might try that this summer! It would be amazing!

Terri, Do you have a specific post where you speak of your favorite teas? I have just started drinking"real" tea and I love it! But only know how to make cinnamon and ginger tea, and of course a box of store bought leaf tea. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts...as I see you as a connoisseur of teas as well as teacups! By the way, your teacups are all gorgeous and I too would have a difficult time picking favorites! ")

I drool looking at your teacups Terri, they all have their own special qualities, but that aqua color is really pulling me! I hope you get to use your tent more this summer too, I will be watching and waiting!

Karen said...

Oh Terri,
I do love all of your favourite teacups too! I hope that we can enjoy lots of outdoor tea parties soon. Have a wonderful week and thank you for hosting with Martha today! Karen

Kathryn Ross said...

Blessings, Terri! Such an excellent selection - I think I like that little Rosina best. You should do a post on where you keep them all sometime. I am often challenged with making "safe" storage space for them and am thinking I may need to scale back a few to make room for any new 2014 treasures that may come along. We shall see. However - your Bertha brought back warm memories of summer tea posts. Looking forward to her again - on a windless sunny day.
Joy!
Kathy

Dear Terri,
you have a beautiful collection. Each one is a treasure and very very outstanding. Cant tell, which I like best. It was really a pitty that you couldn't use this romantic tea tend only a few times. Hopefully the upcoming summer will be better. I would love to attend you in this fantastic tea tend. Thank you for sharing and hosting this tea time.
Best greetings, Johanna

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I think I shall have to look for a Foley teacup, they have a nice design and patterns.
I hope to see more of your chic Bertha tent again this year, I love it.

Crazy For Tea Time said...

True, choosing a favorite tea cup is like choosing a favorite child. Although, that pink floral Foley cup is exquisite! What a fabulous find. It looks like it was a very good year full of wonderful memories. Here's to many, many more. Happy 2014!

Lucille said...

Hi Terri! The first cup is magnificent! A queen among cups! Could I please have that one if we ever have tea together? That would be so nice!

KathyB. said...

I always have ideas and goals for special tea parties with my 6 granddaughters, my friends, and my husband. Your tea tent is perfect for your tea times, and we too have a tea tent we have used for a few years . The tent has been our venue for barbecues, tea parties, and quiet breakfasts together on warm summer mornings.

I am always inspired by your blog posts Terri, and the teacups you've featured are are so beautiful. I especially love seeing tea time posts that show the featured teacup is actually used and even possibly shared with someone . Thank-you.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

I wouldn't be able to choose one of your teacup as my favourite! They are all so delicate. I'm looking for Foley teacup now as well in flea markets, but haven't had any luck yet!

missy k said...

I don't know how you ever choose a cup to use!!!! They are all so pretty and special.

I am a big fan of 'Bertha' she is such fun :)

I am having a friend round for tea this afternoon... and I will be making some biscuits

Your favorite cups are absolutely stunning and I can see why you have them!

Can't wait till warm weather comes back to see your pretty little outdoor tea sanctuary again!

Hi Terri, I love your beautiful tea part marquee and what a cute name she has. Such a nice space to entertain friends and families and share a cuppa.
Thank you for beautiful tea parties last year and looking forward to more fun afternoon teas.

Enjoy your weekend.

Blessings,
Aida

Each of your tea cups is pretty and I like the berries in the interior of that first cup, and the idea of your tea tent soon being up.
