TEACUP TUESDAY


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.

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.
