Hello Ladies! Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 37! Wow, time flies when you are having fun. I am going to do something totally different for this week's TT. I am inviting you into my kitchen. I never do that, and I really like my kitchen. I always take my pictures in the same place every time. I have a cute, little French style kitchen. (I know, I am Mexican, but I just love a vintage French kitchens.) Many of you have asked me, where in the world do I keep all this junk? (You ask much sweeter.) Well, I display my tea cups everywhere. I have different china cabinets for the different colors. When I am using a color, like browns for this month, they are displayed all over the house, including the kitchen. So that is what you are going to see today. How I have displayed my cups and teapots for this month in my kitchen.

Did I ever tell you I collect cottages? (Anything cottage actually.) I just remembered I have these two cute cottage tea pots I will have to show them to you next week. Where was I? Oh yes, cottages. I love them in pictures, plates, tea cups and teapots, knick knacks. You name it, I probably have a collection of them somewhere in this house. I don't like to dwell on what I have too much, I start getting concerned about myself. So, let's move on. Here is a pictures of a plate, teapot and tea cup on my granite. Just so you know, people compliment me on my home all the time, so I have not reached "hourderville" yet! (I am making excuses for myself, oh no!) Moving on quickly, the teapot is English, the plate is by Johnson Bros. "Olde English Countryside" and the tea cup is by Myott & Sons, England. I love when the brown, fall colors are displayed!

This next little vignette is my turkey platter that you have seen before. It is by Sheffield Universal Potteries. The beautiful teapot is by Sadler. The piece I love best here is the copper portrait plate. You know now much I love portrait anything. I was so excited when I found this plate a few years ago. I know it is to cook with. Since I am not much of a cook, I cannot tell you it's use. For me, it is just beautiful and that is all it needs to be!

This next little vignette features a teapot that was given to me by my mother-in-law, Twila, who is now with Jesus. I loved her so much and I miss her so much. She gave it to me years ago because I was always admiring it. The teapot only reads "USA". The little cottage, I believe is a butter dish, but I am not sure. It is reads "Made in England". It is so cute! The rose plate next to it is full with crazing and is American pottery. I just love the vintage look the crazing adds to it.

Did I ever mention to you, I collect Hens? I love them in the kitchen. They look so cute and add to the vintage look in my kitchen. This next set is by Johnson Brothers and is it called "Harvest". I don't know why I purchased the whole place setting, maybe it was cheap, I don't remember. Aren't the colors on this wonderful? I have had it forever! The depression glass hens just add the perfect touch.

I want to welcome the new ladies who have joined us. Terri and I are so grateful for your faithfulness to this Tuesday Party. Many of you have been with us since we started. Thank you, thank you! You are so good! You know what to do with "Mr. Linky". So, let's party! Blessings to all! Martha

So many lovely pieces but you saved the best for last, Harvest is just gorgeous and you are right about the hens being the perfect companions for it.

Thank you for inviting us into your kitchen! Seems many of us love French style.
You do have an amazing collection - I love organizing things by color :)
Just love the first teacup - and the cottage scenes - simply wonderful,

Bookie said...

Admire you collecting without becoming "hourderville"...I have no room left! I too love browns and save them for the autumn. I only have a few but they grow. Brown is nice "break" from brighter blues and pinks I have.

So many beautiful things again today. Love all the browns in your kitchen - the granite is great looking. I really like that Sadler teapot with the classic figures and Greek key border.
