Teacup Tuesday - Week 2

Welcome to week two of “Teacup Tuesdays”.

I am so glad that you stopped by for a visit today and I hope that one of more of my regular visitors (and maybe even some new visitors) have chosen to join me in the fun of sharing photos of the teacups in your personal collections. Unfortunately, I haven't quite figured out how to add Mr. Linky to my blog post yet (I'm not the most technical person in this world ya know!!). I was even thinking that it might be easier just to add the blog links of anyone who is interested in participating in this new weekly event to my blog post each week. If I decide to go that route which I think I may, anyone who is interested in joining me for "Teacup Tuesdays" can send me an Email before 10pm Sunday evening letting me know that you are going to be participating (include the address/link to your blog) and I will add a link to your blog within my post for that upcoming week. Hope that makes sense..

Now, lets get on to the real purpose for today's post..

For this week, I have chosen to share two teacups. Each was made by a different china manufacturing company and are of differing styles, but the floral pattern of the teacups are the same. They have such beautiful pink and yellow roses and are so sunny and cheerful that it’s hard not to fall in love with them when you see them. I was lucky enough years after finding these beautiful teacups to have found a small matching teapot in the same lovely pattern. You can sneak a peak of the matching teapot on my side bar. It’s shown in the first photo under “Pretty China”. Now, I am on the hunt for one or two matching desert plates. I may never find them, but I will never stop looking. If anyone is familiar with this pattern and may know where I can find some matching desert plates, please let me know.

The first teacup was manufactured by Queens China…

The second was manufactured by Royal Stanley China.

I should mention that these teacups are not just used for display. I use all of my teacups, teapots and desert plates on a regular basis. I have never seen the point of spending money on such beautiful things only to have them sit on a shelf or tucked in a cabinet collecting dust. These items are meant to be used and enjoyed and I defiantly do.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. Come back next week to see more of my collection.

Very pretty teacups. I will probably have to wait until next week to join your teacup Tuesdays. The monitor on the computer I usually post on finally went out and waiting on my new monitor at this point. I will get to see all the other pretty ones from this monitor though!

Hi Kim!

I love your china!

I am afraid I can't get my act together enough to join in on any blog things that are scheduled. I totally forget about them until I read the thing on someone's blog! But that is a very nice idea and I hope that you get many people joining in with you!

Have a nice day!

Very pretty teacups Kim! I should have known you a few years ago. I had tons of teacups and saucers that I had collected over the years and have slowly sold most of them. Blessings~

Well I just love your teacups. Enough to start my own collection. Can you believe I don't own one teacup.... That's gotta change. I have several coffee mugs, does that count? Kidding!! But, you have inspired me to maybe start a small collection.

Have a happy day
