Teacups on a Tuesday


This week I'm joining Teacup Tuesday, hosted by Martha and Terri .... you can find more posts like this on: Martha's Favorites.

I thought I'd seen a lot of pretty cups and saucers but Martha REALLY has some beauties!


Anyway, here is a teacup stand I found for my website but in the meantime (meaning, before I have to send it away!) I am showing you some of my personal collection. I have two teacup sets and two cream soup sets in the photo. I just love the double handled soups but I guess technically they aren't teacups. My collection of cream soups has grown to 7...I think they are harder to find.

The teacup with the roses over a deep dark chocolate background was part of a set I had in my antique booth but it broke. I loved it so much I glued it back together and display it in my china cabinet.

Since this is my first T. Tuesday I am going to go check out the other posts and wish you a very Bella day!

You are selling the stand? That perfect stand to display your wares? It seems so practical! (There, now you can justify keeping it for yourself!)

Hi: Thank you so much for being a part of this week's party. I love all the tea cups you shared. I am especially fond of the soup cups. I too, think they are harder to find. To tell you the truth, when I have had large tea parties, I will use the small size soup cups as tea cups too! Everyon just loves them. Please join us again next week. I can't wait to see what you will share with us. Blessings, Martha

Hello Jillian :) Found you from Martha's blog; I too am participating in Teacup Tuesday (this is my first time). I love the ones you have shown us today. I have that exact same teacup stand! Instead of teacups, I have Rhonda's faux cake slices displayed on it, as well as another stand too. I did a post about it a while back if you would like to stop over for a visit :) Her cakes are just so pretty...and VERY addicting to collect!

I have just become your newest follower of your lovely blog, and I look forward to visiting again soon! Warmest, Brenda
