Tea on Tuesday 4

Hello everyone! I have been collecting black and
white tea items for awhile now, always on the hunt.
This tea cup was purchased
at a thrift store in Texas; this is one of a pair and each
has a different scene and a different
animal. I paid $4.00 each. They are from Tabletops
Unlimited and the name of the pattern is
New England Toile.
This cup is very large so it's great for my
morning (get up and go) tea.
Hope everyone has a lovely Tea~day today!

Tea-on-Tuesday 3

This was the tea cup that started it all!
My very first real tea-cup (as I used to call it)
My mom bought this for me at a women s retreat we went on in
Sugar Creek Ohio 16 years ago.

The name of it is 'DUCHESS'
My mom and I saw it at the same time
and both said Ooo look at this!
She picked it up and took it to the register, I thought
she was buying it for herself!
She handed the package to me with a hug
and said "I wanted you to have a special gift to
remember this weekend!"
I use it when I am feeling blue; it always cheers me up!
Happy Tea-day!

Tea on Tuesday

A couple of weeks ago I participated in a tea cup swap hosted by Pat at artfullyooglebloops
My swap partner was Kimmie@ artinredwagons
Swaps are just so much fun! I love getting things snail mail (as long as they are not bills!)

Here is what she sent me- 2 different kinds of tea; one of which is my favorite (Jasmine)
and the other (Northwest Breakfast Tea) I am looking forward to trying!
She also sent the cutest magnet I have ever seen! It has a gold teapot charm on it,
(I am so sorry I do not have a close up picture of it!)
and a tiny tea~spoon with a tea pot on it too.

The teacup is so dainty and pretty with tiny pink flowers,
I just loved it!
Hope all of you have a wonderful Tea~Day!

Tea on Tuesday

This cup and saucer is from a service for 8. It also came with a serving bowl and platter and it was the bargain of last summer's yard sale adventures! Never guess what I paid?.......Eight lovely dollars! Yes, only $8 for the entire set! I was so excited I could not get to the car fast enough; I was so afraid the lady would change her mind! It says on the back that it is called Heritage Hall- Ironstone Made in England. Most of the pieces have different houses on them and the platter has a plantation on it. I just love having tea in these cups! I love a great bargain and the thrill of the hunt! I hope everyone is warm and toasty on this Tea for Tuesday-Tea on Tuesday and Teacup Tuesday ( I just love Tuesday's!)
