Tea Cup Tuesday with Martha and Terri!



At a used antiques and furniture store, Sanford and Kid, in North Adams, Massachusetts, good deals can almost always be found.

The owner apparently goes to estate sales in different parts of New England to find things to stock his store which opens only Fridays through Sundays.

While looking through shelves filled with a diverse assortment of "junk,"  I spotted a whole set of plain but lovely teacups.   They are creamy white with gold rims and  pink roses right inside the cups. There are also a few gold, patterned leaves on the saucers and near the pink roses.


On the bottom, it reads H&E Selb,  Bavaria, Germany, Heinrich.

The Heinrich company was founded in 1904 and has produced thousands of china pieces in a startling array of patterns and colors.

In the end, I bought only one of the teacups because I honestly don't need a whole set. It's quite simple, delicate, and lovely.  Who could resist it for only $1?

For a look at more great tea cups, check the blogs of the two sweethearts who host Tea Cup Tuesday, Martha and Terri, at http://www.marthasfavorites.com/  http://www.martha'sfavorites.com%20and/ http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/.

We should have been sisters we like so many of the same things. I love your new tea cup. It is stunning. I can't believe the price. Thank you so much for sharing. Blessings and Hugs, Martha
