Tea Cup Tuesday-Pumkin Pie

Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
Today my cup is a a pretty one, 
with colors matching this lovely vintage table topper.
Colors just right for fall.

I have never noticed the decal mistake in the bottom of the cup...
but now that I have done this photo, I can see it clearly...can you?
See the small strawberry on the right? The decal was not applied properly and the fruit is shortened.
It is easy to miss a spot even this big, on a cup one is looking at to purchase. I still love this cup though...mistakes do not necessarily mean not to buy.

She is just so pretty on the inside!

I do love the cream colored background...
and of course the gold flower design around the cup!

 Tea today is Assam with cream and sugar.....YUM!

As you can see, this backstamp does not actually mention the manufacturer.
I am sharing this cup once more hoping some one will know if the gold crown itself identifies the maker?

 Each year at this time, I tend to start baking pumpkin pies...
Pumpkin is my favorite!
I like to try new recipes each year and this was my first one.


Pumpkin pie and tea go very well together!

.....and the pumpkin pie did taste quite good! Yay!  On to the next recipe!
(whispers...."don't tell anyone, but I think I do this just so I can have more pumpkin pie!")

If you would like to join in the tea cup fun,
Just go and create a post with your tea cup in it,
and then come back here to link that post up below.
Martha and I are still having fun hosting this tea party!

Hello Terri
Nice rich colours on your teacup - think of the imperfection as character! Since our Canadian Thanksgiving was so long ago now, I'm about ready for pumpkin pie, and I agree that is so good with a cup of tea.

Pam @ Frippery said...

Beautiful teacup. The pie looks scrumptious.


Hi Terri!
I love, love your lovely teacup..bone china, so see through, it must be. Thank you for hosting this lovely tea party.Yummy pumpkin pie! Big hugs,

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

That is a gorgeous teacup, Terri! I did notice the berry but it is so lovely in spite of it. I love the cream colour with all the lovely gold. And my favourite pie has got to be pumpkin too. I think I could eat it most days. Too bad it is so full of calories! Ha!Ha!
I eat it any way. Thank you for sharing your exquisite teacup and enjoy your week, my friend.

Love your frut plats and the tea cup is just beautiful. Pumpkin pie and Tea goes great together indeed!

Createology said...

Lovely teacup. Pumpkin pie and tea sound just right to me. Sorry I have no idea on the gold crown stamp. Sweet sipping dear...

Lucille said...

A very pretty cup! I would never have noticed the imperfection had you not mentioned it. The pie looks delicious. I have never had pumpkin pie. I have never even been tempted to try it. I don't know if I ever will. I suppose I might be surprised if I did!

Antiques And Teacups said...

Hi Terri. Love your teacup. How funny about the strawberry, but who cares? It's a lovely design anyway! I love pumpkin pie but my honey doesn't like it, so I get it when we go somewhere. Thanks for hosting.

Micupoftea said...

Hi Terri....what DOESN'T go with tea?! HAHA! I love a full-bodied Assam. Yum~ Your cup is elegant. Thanks for hosting. Have a great week,

Wanda Lee said...

Hello there dear Terri,

What a lovely teacup with the fruit motif,so pretty and extra yummy, delightful and festive with that Pumpkin pie! Thanks for co-hosting teacup Tuesday.

Cheers, blessings and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen blog

P.S. ~ (I've been gone so long from being able to take the time and energy in visiting my fellow bloggers and commenting in 'blog-land', that it's great to be back visiting and saying 'hello' once again.
Saying 'hi' to old friends as well as new fellow bloggers is a true joy and I thank God)!

Maria Andrade said...

Hello Terri!
This is a beautiful teacup and faults like this do happen with decals. It makes it unique!
When I linked to Tea Cup Tuesday I caused an extra click that turned my image blank and I couldn't change it, sorry.
Can you do something about it?
I can´t help about the backstamp and I don't think it's easy to identify, with so many English makers...
Thanks for the lovely tea with the yummy pumpkin pie.

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Dear Terri,
who is perferct? This cup is a treasure, even with this little mistake. And it is not so visible immids this rich decoration. Indeed a lovely set, with and without pumpkin pie. Thank you for sharing this interesting details and for hosting this sweet event. Have a great week.
Best greetings, Johanna

Snap said...

Terri, I think your teacup is gorgeous (who cares about the decal) and perfect with your linens and pumpkin pie for Autumn. I picked up a teacup this weekend -- the thrift store was getting ready to close and I didn't check as closely as I should have. When I got home I found that the saucer had been broken and repaired. No wonder the price was good. So what!!! The cup and saucer are still beautiful -- the porcelain so thin. Sounds like a good post to me! LOL! Happy Tea Day and thanks so much for hosting! <3

Wonderful tablecloth and a very cute teacup. To drink strawberry tea in the cup must feel like summer. Your pie looks incredibly yummy out. I wish you a great week! Zinnia

Michele M./ Finch Rest said...

Hi Terri,

Wow that teacup is gorgeous! I would've missed the problem and would have still missed it had you not brought it to our attention- one just looks at the amazing fruit and gorgeous gild work on it.


And pumpkin pie and tea? It is truly heavenly! You know I make pumpkin pie all year. And turkey. it's too delish not to - not sure why folks wait.


Thanks for hosting!

Princesa Nadie said...

Dear Terry
I want to return to share my tea cups on Tuesdays but I have not new cups at the moment and I have not too much free time to take new photographs so I have thought in posting ancient posts with a new look
Your tea cup is really pretty and your pumkin cake is delicious

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi Terri: I think your cup is perfect just the way it is. You always have such a wonderful way of taking pictures, everything just looks wonderful when you have your hand on it. Have a great week my friend. Hugs, Martha

KathyB. said...

I like your excuse to make pumpkin pie, I am going to try this with cherry pie!

As usual, your teacup is very beautiful and the decal not being applied right does not mar the beauty one bit.

Thank-you again for hosting this blog party Terri, I love being able to participate, and it gives me an excuse to bake and have tea parties.

No tea cups at the ready right now but just wanted to say what a gorgeous cup that is. Love the gilded detailing and the floral patterns. Makes the cup both whimsical and chique!

(P.S. allow me a shameless plug here :) I am having another tea-related link up today - feel free to join!)

Tea in Texas said...

Your cup and saucer with the lovely fruit center and gold filigree rim is just so pretty. This certainly complements your cloth. The pumpkin pie looks so yummy and the tea is just the best accompaniment. I love your idea of baking a different recipe just to enjoy more pumpkin pie excellent thought! Thanks for hosting this wonderful party and you have the right pie for Thanksgiving or anytime!

Thanks, Pam

The Dragonfly On Iron Gate said...

Terri, Thanks for hosting. I haven't had anytime for blogging and I'm just getting back to it. It was fun to post a tea cup! I had some nice visits to my blog and I will try to be back more often. I LOVE your tea towel.. It has me thinking about my sewing basket! Hugs Jules ~

Victoria said...

Flora said...

At this time, the tea will be cold and pumpkin pie will be long over ...
I join later this tea cup tuesday, but not why I am less happy: the cup is beautiful, despite the defect and if you had not spoken, I would not have noticed it :-)
Here the days are gray and more than ever I can not take good photos, Sgrunt!
A warm embrace, I promise to soon publish a post with a nice cup of tea
Lovely hugs
