Teacup Tuesday - Week 13

Hello my sweet friends....

It's time once again for another "Teacup Tuesday" where I continue sharing photos of the many teacups that I have collected over the past 20 years or so.

This week, I am sharing a lovely "Rosina" teacup that is covered in a beautiful and delicate rose pattern. This teacup has a somewhat different shape than the others in my collection and because of that, I find it to be even more special.

Besides the teacup itself, you are also getting a sneak peak once again at some of my vintage crocheted doilies and potholders. The colors of them are perfectly suited to most of my teacups. I use them while taking my pictures to bring out certain colors in the floral patterns of the teacup. This time, I used both a larger pink doily and a blue & cream potholder. The blue potholder lets the blue in the floral pattern of the teacup "pop" and stand out a little more.

One of my visitors last week mentioned that she would like to see how I display all of my teacups. As much as I would love to be able to show her, it's almost impossible to do that as my collection of teacups is not all in one location. They are scattered between a small china hutch in my dining room, several cupboards in my kitchen, a larger china hutch in my family room downstairs, and as much as I hate to say this, a few are even tucked into a drawer for storage as I just don't have anymore room to display them all at once.

Now that you've stopped by here for a visit, please continue on with your Teacup Tuesday journey and visit the blogs of these lovely ladies to see what they are sharing for Teacup Tuesday today..

That *is* a different shape. It looks like it would hold more tea than usual- maybe a tea mug? ☺

Looks like you have your plate on a pretty plate stand, too! Thanks for showing us your wonderful collection!

Very lovely teacup. Beautiful rose design. I love the filigree pattern along the top of the cup and the edges of the saucer. Very dainty.

I love the tea cup, saucer, doily, and pot holder. I just left an antique store where I bought a platter, bowl, and cookie jar for my daughters. I also purchased an antique pillowcase that I plan to turn into an apron for a dear friend. I also purchased a crocheted very large doily or small table cloth? I'm not sure which, but I am sure it is beautiful and will incorporate very nicely into a dress for one of my grand daughters. I am helping host a brides maid luncheon for my niece and am thinking of giving tea cups and saucers as gifts to the invitees. The store I was in today had some very pretty ones. I have a few that were in my family. I love them. I'm really into bowls though.

Hi Kim, Thanks for your visit and you sweet comments. I love your teacup, the pattern is so pretty and I love the shape of the cup. I love teacups, too, and I have a few of them, right now on my mantle in the living room. I also have a teapot with roses on it and I have that on the mantle, too. I also have some silver teaspoons and a strand of pearls. I love that--it's so feminine and pretty. I can't wait to see more of your teacups.

That is a lovely teacup. I think the shape is wonderful and the gold filigree pattern is outstanding.
