My 7th Teacup Tuesday
Good Morning Everyone,
Well here it is Tuesday and you know what that means. Yep! It's Teacup Tuesday. Once again I am participation in this wonderful event hosted by Martha and Terri.
Please forgive me for not signing off at the end of this post but for some reason I can't seem to be able to get print under the last picture.
This first cup I am showing you is actually is one of the cups - from my set of China. I purchased my China when I turned 16 and had my first paying job. I was working part time at SS Kressge making $2.00 an hour . Knowing I wanted pretty China I saved every penny I made - till I had enough to put this pretty Noritake set on Layaway - then I headed to Goldblats Department Store put my down payment in the sales girls hands and signed up for layaway and must have made payments for at least a year if not more before I could bring my treasure home. My family thought me a bit strange for investing in China before I was even engaged or had even been to college. But they dutifully stored it for me, out of harms way.
This next set is a bargain purchase at a yard sale and more of a demitasse size and I fell in love with the roses on it. So I plopped down my 50 cents and walked away a happy camper
This cup and saucer are also more of the demitasse size A small treasure from Lefteris, which I was told was a name used by Lefton China Co. for awhile. But I have been unable to find any real history about if that is true or not. If someone knows for sure - please let me know. I just loved the flowers and the lacey saucer.
