Tea Cup Tuesday...again
I collect a lot of things, red and white polka dot fireking bowls, antique frames, black Americana, Old German Documents, Vintage Christmas Decor, books with family names in the titles, mismatched vintage silverware, buttons and much much more, but teacups are not included in this list. It's not that I don't adore them, I do, it's just that I don't have the room for them and something else always seems to catch my eye.
But sometimes, just sometimes, someone will give me one because they know I will go gaga over it...like this one...
My BFF Brenda ( please feel sorry for her..she was suppose to leave for Europe last Saturday and out of all things on the planet....a freakin' volcano put an end to that) gave this to me for my birthday many many moons ago. First of all, it has a touch of green, my favorite color AND it has delicately painted ivy on it. I heart Ivy! It's gorgeous, I don't do it justice with my picture taking that's all. The rim of the tea cup is gold as well as the handle with beautifully painted gold scrolled pattern on the cup and saucer. What I especially love about this cup it that it is 3 footed and as you can see, it fits perfectly with the color scheme and decor of my Dining room. The only markings on the cup are a crown, the words "fine china" and "Kelvin" and to my disappointment, I tried to do a little research on it and came up with nothing. So if any of you have a clue...please let me in on it...I'd love to know.
Thanks again to Martha for inviting me to Tea and enjoying all you fab people's company.
Have a wonderful day
