Teacup Tuesday

Hello everyone,

I am once again participating in Teacup Tuesday with Terri and Martha. I can't believe I let two week roll by without me getting a teacup post out there. Must be slowing down now that I turned 60.

The cups I am showing off today - are the ones I received from my friend Dana - who is so super sweet to me. Isn't this teacup a beauty - I just love the flowers and its wonderful coloring -

It says Duchess, Fine Bone China, Made in England

And aren't these two just awesome. They combine my love of bears - with my love of cups.

They bottoms read -Rather Charming, Fine Bone Chine, Lesser and Pavey, Bartford, UK.
Designed in England by some cat in a cowboy hat.

Note: A trip to England is on my bucket list - so I can ride one of those doubledecker buses.

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis

The mere chink of cups and saucers tunes the mind to happy repose. ~George Gissing, The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft

Penny, all your cups are wonderful! I love your Duchess cup and saucer. I have the same one and I love using it. The flowers and colors are so vibrant.
I have been to England twice so far and I have yet to ride on the double decker bus or in one of those old taxis. But it would be fun!
Hope you get there soon.

Tis a lovely teacup, I especially like floral cups that bring in the color blue. The teacup and saucer stand are perfect for display, did you make it?

I love the flower teacup and the quote by C.S. Lewis.
