THE TIMELESS ELEGANCE OF TEA CUPS!
Hello Ladies! It is our favorite day of the week, Tea Cup Tuesday No. 82! I just have to share, my Grand baby is still not here! She is past her due date, so here we are waiting. I can't hardly stand it!
I had the pleasure of attending a special tea this weekend at "Paris in a Cup." This is the second time I have been to this event and it was more than I expected. I had the opportunity to hear and meet the the fabulous Jenny Doh. She is the author of many wonderful books as well as the editor of a magazine. The tea brought together ladies who have businesses on line. It was great to meet ladies who are so creative.
I found this little tea cup the other day at a Thrift Store. It is very pretty and very delicate. I loved it. Have you ever had a moment when you discovered something about yourself, that you don't like or are a little embarrassed about? That's what happened to me with this little cup. Ok, confession time, I don't like cups made in china. I have always thought they were such poor quality, they are heavy and not very will made. I never gave them a second look. (A cup snob, I am sorry! I think it is true.) This cup however, changed my wicked ways! It is signed "Crown China", never really heard of it before. It is the most fragile and delicate cup I have seen in a long time. The pictures so not do it justice. It feels like a Belleek! As you know, orange is not my favorite color, but the cup is stunning. I guess I have to change my whole outlook on cups.
I do hope that you do not stop visiting because I discovered I am (was) a cup snob. Like I said, I am changing my evil ways. This next cup is a no brainer, it just fits perfect into the beautiful, have to have, category. It is a yellow, hand painted, rose, Lefton pedestal cup. It is amazing.
This next cup is a all gold cup from Bavaria, Germany. I love the all gold look. You feel very special when you drink your tea from this cup.
This week's last cup is a Taylor & Kent, from England. I love the shape of the cup. This is the only cup I have with Mums on it.
Remember that Give Away? It is time to announce the winner of the tea cup. My Noah, pick the name out of the bowl. The winner is Sherry, of The Charm of Home, http://thecharmofhome.blogspot.com/.
