One More Tea Cup

Hello friends,

Well, today is Teacup Tuesday, sponsored by two lovely ladies, Terri, from Artful Affirmations, and Martha, from Martha’s Favorites.  I actually have another cup to share.  Painfully, this may be my last one to share for now (until I get another), but it won’t stop me from enjoying all of yours.  So I will keep looking forward to Teacup Tuesday.

Well, this cup/saucer is from a set that a friend gave to me.  The set includes a creamer, sugar bowl, and some dishes.  I like the color and the toile design very much – don’t you?

As you can see it’s made in England, and I’m very fond of it.  I’ve really never been a mug person, though I do have some that I enjoy; they’re just too clunky, awkward, and heavy, and detract from the quiet ‘energy’ of drinking tea in my opinion.  For me nothing says “tea” (or even an occassional cup of coffee) like a real teacup.

Though, I would like to say a little something about mugs.  I do have a favorite – it’s the one that my son gave to me for Mother’s Day many years ago when he was 7 years old.  Hmmmm…maybe I can share that one next Tuesday – what do you think?

Speaking of tea, I’d like to mention a wonderful tea blog that I think you will enjoy.  Tea Pages, by Katrina, has everything from tea reviews and the business of tea to wonderfully written musings, and much more.  A perfect topper to Teacup Tuesday.  I’m looking forward to her new book  “Tea Memories”.  Just click Tea Pages to find out more.

Thank you for dropping by.  It’s always a pleasure visiting.  Until next time, may happy days abound.

Marianne ♥

    I love your teacup set! So beautiful and I love that you added the bird in the shot. It just brings something wonderful to it. I at one time had collected an assortment of teacups and saucers. I was planning to do my famous “flower arrangements” in them, but had put them away because other things starting to occupy my time. Maybe now is a good time to bring them back out and enjoy them. Thank you for sharing your wonderful collection.

    Many blessings,
