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!

  4. The best kind of tea cup is one filled with memories. I love this pretty one.

  5. I love English Victorian Roses and your cup is so lovely. Rose hips tea would be perfect for it. It's my first "Tea on Tuesdays" so please stop by when you get a chance for a cup.
