SHOW AND TELL SUNDAY

LOVE MY TEA CUPS
Annalise from Sugar Sugar has given us another challenge .
This week I am showing some of my favourite tea cups.
This pink pair are just perfect to have you biscuit on the side

Such a pretty Lily of the Valley cup.
I love this gorgeous pair of ‘blue floral’ teacups.
Just the perfect size for an afternoon coffee and a chat with a gal pal.

This lovely pink and gold pair are so pretty.
I know they are not a pair but I just love them together.
I love the detail in the gold

Roses are my all time favourite flower so of course I have a favourite pink rose trio.
Don’t you just love the shade of green in this little pretty.
Two more of my favourite colours and favourite flower in this matching pair of aqua and pink trios with a sweet rose inside the cup.
Thanks Analise for another fun Show and Tell Sunday.

Isn't that pale pink gorgeous?! I have a similar set but it's just plain pink. I only have one cup and one saucer so I'm careful with it. Love your lily of the valley set too! Blessings... Polly

51 comments!!! Like you need to hear from me. I loved looking at your pretties. I am always happy to visit a new house and discover they have china cupboard! Thanks for stopping in to see me last week. Yes, my daughter is a bit cheeky. The "carp" remark is reference to an old family story. When she was in second grade she read a story about a little Jewish boy and their food traditions. For the life of me I cannot think of how to spell the type of fish dish the story was about, but I made a joke that it sounded like a carp story to me. This became a family phrase. Always nice to catch up with you. Wishing you all things good and beautiful.

Cindy@Cutepinkstuff said...

Natasha Burns said...

You probably don't need one more person to tell you after all of these comments, but those are just lovely, lovely teacups. Each time I saw my favorite, I saw another one I liked just as much.
