TEA CUPS AND NOSTALIGIC TOUCHS FOR NOVEMBER!
Hello Ladies: Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No 137! I know we are almost at Halloween and everyone's home is ready for that fun day. Our home is filled with excitement as well, but I am beginning to look forward to Thanksgiving. I think Thanksgiving is a perfect time to showcase your collections. It seems that it is the one time of the year when the past is always in style. I have begun to slowing make some changes in my home looking forward to Thanksgiving. So, with that in mind, today you will see some November cups.
This first cup is a Nippon. It is almost wafer thin and I have the matching dessert plate. I really prefer to purchase my tea cups with the dessert plate, simply because when I have tea parties, they are usually for very large groups and the matching plate makes it so much easier. This cup is hand painted and it is stunning. I am not a big Japan fan, but this cup is one of many exceptions.
My next cup is a Castleton China. This first demitasse cup has pattern name of "Sunnyvale". This is very high quality china with a wonderful floral print.
This last cup is a Haviland, Limoges. My all time favorite china company. The name of this pattern is Autumn. Just look at the wonderful handle on this beauty.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week. A special thank you to Terri for all she did to encourage me this past week. Terri, you are the best! My week was very full.
Hope you have a wonderful week. I feel like I did so much better on my visits last week. My plan to to comment on all visitors this week. Blessings to you all. Hugs, Martha
