Once again it is Teacup Tuesday, over at Martha‘s and Terri's. And since there was no holiday to get me confused on what day it us - I’m participating.
All of today’s teacups came from various auctions and my theme that ties them together is the color purple.
I bought this cup and saucer as one of a few in a collection that was being sold.
Violets signify humility, modesty and purple violets signify you occupy my thoughts.
I have always liked this set but never, ever paid much attention to the detail of it until today. Oh my, I never realized they were not a matched set. I’m bad, I need to be more vigilant at checking things like that out. In my defense this is one of the earlier cups I bought for crafting with - so I doubt I would have cared back then-it just needed to make a pretty bird feeder or whatever I had in mind at the time.
This next cup with its pale yellow background and pretty violets I picked up not too long ago.
This last cup was in a box of miscellaneous item I bought - don’t remember - what was in the box I wanted - but this cup and saucer were extras. It had it share of dings and dents - but I kept it because I liked the Wisteria on it and the fact it was from Austria. Wisteria - signifies welcoming a new person into your life.
While cleaning up from my Mad Hatter Tea Party last weekend - it’s poor saucer hit the ground and was broken beyond repair. so now I have an orphan cup.
Thank you for coming by to visit. See you soon on your blog.
