* Tea Cup Tuesday *

I'm very pleased to join Terri of Artful Affirmations, and Martha of Martha's Favorites for Tea Cup Tuesday!

(I posted these photos earlier this year, but wanted to show them again now, since it's the last Tea Cup Tuesday in December.)

I bought this darling set at a thrift store for $3.00!

I love the "poofy" parts of the cup!


The stamp says: Royal Albert, Bone China, England.
Flower of the Month Series. Set of Twelve.
"Holly" No. 12

An appropriate pattern to show on this December 28, 2010, Tea Cup Tuesday!
Happy New Year, everyone!

  2. Thanks, Mya! I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment! I think I got a bargain, too, even though there is a crack in the cup that barely shows. Someone did a great repair job on it. I may not actually drink out of it, but it certainly is pretty to look at! :)

  3. Hey Becky---

    I will (hopefully) see you this morning. I'll have bells on, along with $20 for a book I can finally open up. (I can't wait--to see you and to be able to read your story!)

  5. Lovely teacup and saucer. I loved the Dean Martin music. One of my favorite singers and the song is a favorite also, It is a Marshmellow World here where I live today.

  22. My mom keeps buying Christmas trinkets and things to use around the house. If more of them were as tasteful and sweet as these festive tea cups, perhaps I wouldn't complain to my mom so much. I really like that the leaves are three dimensional. I don't think I've seen that on a tea cup before, at least not so classy.

  23. Oh, sorry Becky. I think it's actually the berries that are 3D.
