Silver Tea Cup Tuesday
I have these 3 tea cups from a very long time ago...so 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 new...like "Polka Dot" Wednesday...then we'll talk. Drink up everyone! Don't forget your pinkie must be up in the air
