PRETTY VINTAGE THINGS . . .
Hello Tea Lovers! Welcome once again to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 53! A fun day when we get to share all our pretty tea things. I know that some of you may have noticed that I did not visit everyone last week. I was so sick last week, all I could do was think! Dangerous, I know. I just needed my Mama, but I did not dare to have her over because I did not want to get her sick. So, I am sorry for not visiting all of you last week. I will do better this week, I promise.
This week's post is going to be very different. I am only going to show you only two tea cups, today. I do have one or two more, but I wanted to show you some other tea items that came to mind while I was busy being sick. Did I ever tell you that I collect California Pottery, to be honest vintage pottery in general? Well, I do! Although my collection is not as extensive as my China collection. It can hold it's own. In fact, I decided (remember, I was thinking) I was going to thin out my rather large collection of pottery bowls I own. Up on Ebay they will go! The two pitchers above are something I use during teas for water. They are Hall's. Love the pastel colors and the Art Deco style.
This first cup is by Poppy Trail. It is called "Lotus". This is one of three everyday sets I use. Sometimes, you are just in the mood for Pink! I love the color and the design of this cup.
Cup No. 2 is Fiesta ware. Usually, my sister will come by and take whatever Fiesta I have so this is an ever changing collection. Love the Art Deco design on this one.
I have a rather large collection of vintage pottery teapots. (Thinking puts you in a confession mood.) This first one is a Bauer, speckled tea pot. Love the pink.
These next two are a Fiesta, tea pot and coffee pot. I had several different colors, but my sister, oh well. I will see how long these two last.
This next tea pot was a gift from my Mama in 1972. It has more to the set, but I just wanted to show you the tea pot. It is a favorite because she gave it to me.
The teapot at the top of the post is an "Unsigned Beauty". Amazing for pottery, don't you think? Well, I hope you enjoyed these different tea items this week. I know that Terri and I always enjoy the day. Terri is so wonderful, please visit her.
I know I have talked too much, sorry! You know what to do with Mr. Linky. Enjoy your Tea Cup Tuesday in blogland. Have a beautiful week and remember you are loved. Hugs, Martha
