I've been thinking all week about which teacups to show today. Think that's an indicator that I might have too many? Nah, me either! There's no such thing as having too many teacups, and I've set out to prove it. I still see so many that I would love to have. Right now, I think I'm at about 90 teacups. That's down from over 100 last year. They were falling out of my armoir, so had no choice. I took a box of them to a local tea house and sold them. I do go and visit them once in awhile, though!
This is a vintage beauty that was a gift to me from one of my tea club friends. She chose it for me because I love purples and lavenders. There is no marking on either the saucer or the teacup, so I have no idea who made it or where.
This darling lavender and pink iris teacup with the tiny feet was a gift from my Daughter-in-Love one Christmas.
This sweetie is made by Royal Albert and is the Wild Rose pattern. I know they made a Wild Rose for their Friendship Series, and there's also another one, so three in all that are named Wild Rose. Confused? Me too.
By the way, you can click on any picture and get a full screen view. At least, I think you can! It's been a month already, and I'm still learning the "blogging" ropes! If it works, it will take the blurriness away, too.
Those are just a few from my teacup collection. I hope you liked them, and will come back next week. My teacups are natural born hams - they love to be taken out and admired and photographed. Can't you see the smile on their faces? Well, maybe not, but they put a smile on my face, and I hope on yours as well.
Have a marvelous week, everyone, and don't forget to keep "living in the pink"!
God bless everyone!
