Tea Cup Tuesday!


The cups I'm sharing with you today are really special to me.  The first tea cup belonged to my mother.  It reminds me a little of Lady Carlyle.  The name on the bottom is Salisbury and is made in England.  I love the cluster of flowers inside the cup.  The teddy bear belonged to her also!                                     

The second cup is a cute little demitasse cup that belonged to my grandmother.  I remember my grandmother drinking  Turkish coffee from these cups.  When she was done she would turn it upside down.  After a few minutes she would turn it right side up again and read the fortune it told.  That's how I remember it as a child.  I'm not sure where it was made since there is only a number on the bottom.

  1. I'm loving your teacup and I THINK I'm loving that pillow in the background! Did I make that one? I think I might have!

    Now...I'd also like to see WHAT that sweet little teacup is sitting on! :)
