This is the second week for Martha's & Terri's Tea Cup Tuesday, but it is the first week for me. Terri is a great friend that I met through the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group and Martha is a very nice lady who I met through Terri. I have been collecting tea cups since I was a teenager and my Mom also collects Teacups. The one I am going to share with you today is very special. When my husband and I got married we did not register to get china and after 10 years of marriage, for Christmas my husband picked out a place setting and gave it to me with the understanding that I could pick out any one I wanted, but I loved the one he picked so I got a 12 place setting of this beautiful china. It is Noritake, and the name is Rothchild. I know that it is not real old, but I love the vintage look and colors. It is so pretty at Easter time. Thank you Martha and Terri, this has been fun.

I love your tea cup and the story that goes with it!! I think it is just lovely! I love the colors and it looks so delicate!!

Terri, how romantic that your husband picked this out for you!
I almost chose this pattern 25 years ago myself. It is such a beautiful pattern!
Thank you for sharing!

What a lovely story. I can see why you kept it, the pattern is so sweet with the blue running through it. Thanks for sharing.
