Tea Cup Tuesday










Hello, Thank you for visiting my blog today for Tea Cup Tuesday. On our trip to Chicago a couple of weeks ago we stopped in the lovely town of Chesterton, IN. There are some wonderful antique shops and this is where I purchased this beautiful cup. In one booth I found this vintage zip up plastic china holder with 10 english tea cups it was priced at $30.00 marked down to $20.00. There was a another one with the saucers inside, priced at $20.00 marked down to $10.00. So I got 10 tea cups and saucers for $3.00 each. They are all english and they are in beautiful shape, no chips or cracks, I love them all except two, one is a mismatch, which I will use for crafting and the other is more modern cup and saucer. Most of the tea cups have roses on them so I was thrilled. I want to thank Terri and Martha for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday, please click the tea cup on my side bar and visit the other wonderful tea cups today. I hope you are having a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Terri,
That is an elegant cup. I am finding that cups have a "feel" to them. Things are stressful here but we had some good news. My husband's cancer is shrinking a bit. We are so thrilled since this is the first good news. I am so grateful to the blogging community. What a great bunch!
Hugs

This is a beautiful teacup! It reminds me of my favorite carousel horse as a child.
