Silver Tea Cup Tuesday

I have these 3 tea cups from a very long time long, I don't remember how I came into possession of them. But what I do remember is that I had 4 and I broke one which is why I only have 3. I gave a baby shower with a "Tea" theme and I used them for dips and what nots. No saucers, just cups.

They are stark white with pink and gray delicate roses and leaves with just a hint of pale yellow. One one side of the cup, the rose is large...the other side a smaller one. The rim and handle have a silver or platinum edge. On the bottom is written "Platinum Rose" "fine China" and that's it.

I've mixed them here with various silvery items. My pewter napkins rings, retro aluminum serving tray and very vintage and tarnished silverware...just how I like it.

Sometimes silver is more appealing to the eye than gold and I'm loving all the different textures

Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting this amazing Tea Party. I've learned so much. I have one more tea entry for next time and that'll be it for me...unless you want to start something "Polka Dot" Wednesday...then we'll talk. Drink up everyone! Don't forget your pinkie must be up in the air


  1. Oh Bunny so pretty ! Have a great week.

  2. OMG you have changed your site
    Girl I don't know how you do it...
    Thanks for checking on me and leaving me your usual funny comments...even though it hurts to laugh I enjoyed reading them.
    Christi is taking a bath so I am sneaking in a few comments before she catches
    Just was over at JoJo and congrats on your win.
    I feel like I have missed out on so much this week.

  3. Really pretty china. I just started to use mine to hold little startings of plants instead of hid away. It makes me happy.

    Your pictures of your vignette are so pretty you should make a greeting card out of it or a print.

  4. After a lifetime of considering myself to be a gold person i'm getting to be a fan of silver things lately too; esp in jewelry with lots of texture.
    Your china is so pretty and a great idea to use for party dips. I agree with Jaime; your photography is worthy of printing to make greeting cards.

  5. I've always loved silver.

    So beautiful and distant looking.

  6. WOW Bunny, these are lovely and your photos of them are equally stunning! I am still learning how to take photos....I am an awful photographer! Anita

  7. Aren't they beautiful!! They certainly look amazing with your silverwear and napkin rings!!!

  8. I think these are the sweetest tea cops! and I love how the silver you have shared with us, just made everything look to much more elegant!

  9. Ahhh, I see pretty teacups here!! We're having a Victorian Tea Party, on Mother's Day and you're invited! Share your lovely teacups with the world! Come see!


  10. Lovely, delicate rose tea cups! So sweet, and the silver goes so well with them.
    I love your idea of putting dips in them.
    Thank you for joining in Tea Cup Tuesday.

  11. Hi Bunny: I love your tea cups this week. I did not know you collect aluminum. Love the tray. Your idea about using them as dip holder is great. I will remember that. I have use the demitasse cups as flower holders on the tables. Thank you for being a part of today. It would not be the same without you. In fact, I don't think my life would be the same, if I had not met you. Have a wonderful week! Love, Martha

  12. Very pretty! I love the napkin rings!

  13. There is something about pink roses that I just adore. I love these cups. I love them with the silver as well. I actually remembered today was Teacup Tuesday and posted one of mine.

  14. Bunny you seem to have some great ideas! I'm lovin' the dips in the cups idea. Thanks for sharing!

    I prefer silver to gold myself...but a tea cup of any kind works for me too!
    Your cups are lovely...hopefully some day, when your out vintage/thrift shopping you'll come across a replacement!

    They are pretty!
    have a great night!

  18. The silver looks lovely with the tea cups..great post! Take care.


  19. Yes, I always like the look of silver - your photos are so beautiful. The ta cups are lovely. Thanks for your visit to my blog and have a wonderful new week.

  20. I do love silver! Not so much gold, especially the glaring kind. You changed your blog look again. You are the queen of change my dear! I only went back to an old header as it fits my style more than the other did. Your teacups are so pretty, love the muted colors. I don't have teacups. Just honkin mugs for coffee -- and I love a huge mug of tea when the whether is cooler. We are having beautiful blue skies these days. Nice in the mornings but already so hot in the afternoons. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday! :) Tammy

  21. I love, love, love it. What a pretty setting with the tea cups. Reminds me of the south.


Go 'head...say it already!
