PINK TEA CUPS FOR THE PARTY!
Hi Ladies: Happy Tea Cup Tuesday NO. 164! I have to tell you something funny. I told you last week that I am cleaning out that front closet for my son, so he can have a place for his Fire Gear. I found some baskets that I have had since 1975 or so. I decided to put them on Ebay and Pretty Vintage Things to sell them. Since I had not used the in as many years, it is time for them to go. They turn out to be made by the Choco Indians, from the Panama Rainforest. Quite expensive to say the least, some are selling on Ebay for over $1,900. I am not listing mine so high, but WOW! So ladies, it's good to do some spring cleaning when ever possible.
I do hope you have had a good week. My week was mixed with serious illness on my husband's side of the family, while celebrations went on my side of the family for my niece. Everyone is continuing to improve and more parties have been planned that I am in charge of. You know how much I love that! All the kids went swimming and had a wonderful time. I was the Life Guard! (Just a side note, I can't swim, but I sure can yell, if needed.)
This week I want to share pink cups. This first one is a pink lusterware cup with a couple featured on both the saucer and the cup. It is very pretty, had it for years! It is an unsigned beauty, my guess is that it was Made in Japan.
Cup No. 2 is a demitasse cup with the base, shaped like a tassel. Note the double handle on this pretty cup. A very pale pink color, perfect for a Spring table. Since I am being so good, lately, I am listing these first two cups on my website, Pretty Vintage Things. I have been on a roll ladies! Remember I give discounts to blog followers.
The last cup is a English Foley. It is just stunning, with very vivid colored rose tea cups. If you look closely, you will be the the artist signed the cup in front. I have been lucky enough to have Shabby Lanes, accept another article of mine for this seasons magazine. Hope you get a chance to read it.
Here is Mr. Linky for this week, you know what to do. Don't forget to stop and enjoy Terri's blog this week. She always has some amazing cups.
