DRESSED UP IN TEA CUPS!
Can you believe it is Tuesday again? Life is going by so fast. Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 81. I am so looking forward to this week. My Granddaughter, Sophia, should be born this week. The excitement is so thin around here, we jump at every phone call. Then Saturday, Oct. 1, I will meet with the Editor of Romantic Homes. We will be discussing if I am "magazine worthy." I am excited just to be invited to "talk."
I have some orange cups to share with you this week. I am not a "orange" person, but my home is filled with those colors this month getting ready for Halloween. Noah is so funny, he came in the house after I had started decorating for Halloween and he said "Grandma it looks beautiful!" He then goes through and picks what he wants to take home to his house, because he "needs it." It is thinning out by Halloween items.
This first tea cup is a trio from R.S. Japan. It is an amazing orange color, done in Lusterware. The inside of the cup is white. Cup Number two is also a R.S. Japan. This one has a cherry blossom pattern. I have no idea how old they are. I have also included some pictures of a R.S. Japan Tea pot and creamer. These are all done in the Lusterware.
Cup Number three is this beautiful Brown and White, RW Bavaria, Made in Germany, demitasse cup. It has hand painted gold roses as part of the design, with a gold rope trim border. Did I ever tell you I collect cottages? Well, you guessed it, I do. Here are a few of my collection in this group of pictures.
The next cup is by Johnson Brothers. It was made in England and is called the Ice House, part of the Friendly Village Series. Love colors on this set. I don't know if you can tell, but it has teal, rose, yellow, blues and greens. It is just stunning.
I am going to show you one more cup. It is one of my favorites. It is an Aynsley, I think it is stunning.
The picture on top is of the cup I am going to give away. This is your last week to join the giveaway. Read the previous post for all the information. Here is the Linky for this week. Terri and I are looking forward to seeing all your treasures.
Hopefully, next week I will announce the winner of the tea cup and the arrival of our new Grandbaby!
