Martha and Terri's Tea Cup Tuesday



Sometimes we see a tea cup and are drawn to it for no apparent reason. That's the way it was with today's flower-covered beauty.

It's not an expensive cup. I think it was found it in an all purpose store. It's made in China by Nantucket. It was on a shelf with a lot of  other cups. The multi-colored flowers attracted my attention, as well as the gold rim around the cup, handle, and saucer. It was so pretty!   I picked it up and put it back down.



As I continued my shopping, the floral tea cup kept popping into my mind so I pushed my shopping cart back to the aisle where it was located.  It was a relief that it was still there. I picked it up, put it in my cart, and walked to the checkout.


This cup makes me think of spring, when real flowers are popping up all over.  Drinking a fragrant tea in this cup makes it taste all the more delicious!

Now, for a look at more wonderful tea cups, check out the following two blogs of Martha and Terri,

Susan, I love this one as much, or maybe more than your previous ones! You really do have a beautiful collection. I, too, love the variety of flowers, and I think the gold rim INSIDE the cup makes it even more special! I have a little tea cup I'm going to include in Teacup Tuesday, too!

I just bumped into your blog and am enjoying the tea cup. I have bought some for the same reason, no reason at all! I wonder if you drink a lot of tea too or just enjoy the cups?

Susan said...

Hi Everybody! Loved having you come by for Tea Cup Tuesday.

Bookie, to answer your question, I don't drink a lot of tea. I'm more of a coffee drinker. (GASP! OMG. I admitted it on Tea Cup Tuesday. Fifty whacks with a wet noodle for moi.)

But I DO have a lovely tea cup collection that, uh oh, keeps growing and growing and growing.

Come back soon everyone! Sincerely, Susan

Had to drop back by Susan. Your flower garden cup yesterday got me so pumped that I had to go snap some pictures of my own cups and pots. I posted them on my blog and invite you to look. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hello Susan, you sound like someone I would love to go antiquing with. Your teacup is beautiful and the story of how you found it was sweet. It's funny how something so small can bur into our minds like that making us turn right back round to pick it up. Take care.
