Teacup Tuesday - Week 21

Hello my friends and welcome to another addition of "Teacup Tuesday".

Are you lacking sunshine where you live? If the skies have been cloudy and gray where you are, I have something today that will definately add a bright spot of sunshine to your day and will hopefully put a smile on your face.

What do you think of this lovely yellow Chintz pattern?? Beautiful isn't it?

This is a reproduction yellow & rose Chintz pattern manufactured by Welbeck in 1995 as part of a series of pieces that were offered for sale through "Victoria" Magazine. Of course, I just had to own a few pieces, so I purchased the teapot and two teacups w/saucers. Since that time, I've also aquired a few other pieces in this same series, including two desert plates that if I remember correctly I found at TJ Maxx of all places. I will show you the entire set when I feature the matching teapot in an upcoming Teapot Tuesday post.

What's really neat, is that years and years ago I found a small cottage style picture that has the same colors of red, yellow and blue that are in the teacups and they all blend together so beautifully so I snuck that into the picture too just so you could see.

Pretty as a postcard don't you think?? To see more pretty tea things, take a trip over the the blogs of these wonderful ladies to see what they are sharing for this weeks Teacup Tuesday.
