TEA CUP TUESDAY NO. 18!
Hello Ladies! Happy Tea Cup Tuesday. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My was very busy with family and Grandchildren. It was so fun watching Noah in the pool. As I am writing this, my son, Kyle is back from his adventure. I have missed him, telling me he is hungry. He is hungry all the time. Does any one else have a son, with a stomach that never gets filled? It does get weary trying to feed him all the time, but I even missed that. He took me to see "Eclipse" before he left. The moment I sat down in the theatre, I feel asleep. I hate that, I was so mad at myself. I did go again, in the morning and stayed awake this time. It was so wonderful to spend the weekend with family, God is so good to me! I do need to count by blessings!
This is our 18th Tea Cup Tuesday. Time flys when we are talking tea cups! I have gone back to more normal tea cups this week. The first one I am sharing with is this week's favorite. It is a off white Coalport, with matching creamer and sugar bowl. It is a Royal Fluted, Eight Ribbed Cup. Notice the edges, they look like they have been cut with pinking sheers. The cup has a loop handle. The sugar bowl is pedestal shape. I just love how they look.
The next cup is a Coalport trio. It is called "June time". It is an Eight Ribbed, Scalloped, Swirled shape with a loop handle. Like all Coalport tea cups it is exquisite. I love the pastel bouquet pattern.
Cup number three is demitasse, Hammersley & Company. It has a beautiful bouquet of mauve, blue and plum as a pattern. The cup has tall, flared, ribbed body and a Old English handle. The saucer also features a raised swirled pattern. I do hope you do not mind that I give the proper discription for each cup. I think it helps us become a more knowledgeable collector.
The pretty little tea pot is a Royal Staffordshire. I love the cottage design. It I ever tell you I collect cottages? Figurines and pictures are some of my favorite things to collect. (I know, I have too many things!) In my defense, I do sell alot on Ebay. When I get tired of a collection up it goes. Sometimes though, I start selling a collection and only send sell half, because I changed my mine. Therapy is calling! The larger tea pot is a Sader. Love them both! I have not put up pictures of Noah lately. I know you were missing him. The second one is Noah, my son Kyle and my daughter Vanessa!
