Teacup Tuesay

Hello everyone,

Guess what? It's Teacup Tuesday, with Martha and Terri

Back in early December before my lungs started to gurgle and froth, I went to an auction and managed to get this wonderful tea set. I use the word set loosely as it came with 9 cups saucers and cake plates as well as two creamers and sugar bowls. I'm not sure if it started life as a service for 10 or 12 and some piece have been lost over the years or why it is a service for 9 (to me that is a bit odd)

I loved it inspite of it's odd number of servings. Those white roses just kept calling to me - so how could I resist? - I couldn't so they all came home to live with me.

It is Queens Royal Bone China. Made in England and bears a crown logo. I really haven't had the energy to do much research on it - but I just had to share it with all of you, anyway.

Each cup of tea represent an imaginary voyage.

Thank you for sharing this voyage with me today.

Hello Penny,
OMG, this is such a nice pattern. I couldn't have resist, either, to buy it if I had the chance. Really lovely. You will have lots of fun with it the whole year. Thank you for sharing.
Greetings, Johanna
