CELEBRATING TEA AND MONIQUE!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to another Tea Cup Tuesday! This marks our 62nd Tuesday that we have been celebrating our love for Tea Cups. I plan to show you a few different tea items with week. The first item I would like to show you is this two cup Tea Pot with matching creamer and sugar container. It is a Bonnie Griffin, Antique Rose, Brownlow Design. It is hand painted. A very unique set!
This next one I want to show you is a very unusual, antique, miniature Character Tea Pot. It was made in Staffordshire, England by Artone. The little lady is hand painted and measures about 2 3/4" high. The large tea pot and tea cup is by Roy Kickham, pattern name "Redoute Roses." It too is from England. Love the large roses on this one.
Did I ever tell you I collect creamers? Well, yes, this is something I collect in secret. I don't like to mention it too much, because I don't want anyone to think I am "over the top!" This next tea pot, I purchased, simply because I love the creamer. It is a Royal Vienna and the creamer sits on four little legs. It is a lovely pink and green, too cute!
This next tea pot is something very different. I use it as a creamer. It is a Portmeirion, from England. I love that it has a complete miniature tea set as part of the lid. I plan to thin out a lot of my tea items in my website. This will be one of the items that will be on sale.
The trio at the top of the post is "Romance" by Old Ivory, Syracuse China. This set is American. I love the maroon colors.
This week also marked a big moment in our family history. My daughter, Monique, graduated from USC with her Master's Degree. The first in our family. We have a lot of BA's, but until this past week no Master's. I am so proud of her.
Here is Mr. Linky and you know what to do. Don't forget to visit Terri, she is amazing! Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Martha
