Tea Cup Tuesday!

It doesn't quite feel like a Tuesday because of the holiday so I almost forgot to search my house for my tea cups.  The first one I'm sharing with you today was a gift from my niece.  She always finds the neatest stuff when she goes out treasure hunting.  It's called Victoriana Rose which seems like such a fitting name for such a dainty cup.  I love the soft pink roses and all the gold edging.  Being a gift makes it even more special.  I made the little doll hanging out in the background there and also the tea tray they are sitting on!
                                              

My second cup to show you today is by Shelley.  I think I love every Shelley cup I have ever seen.  Unfortunately this cup doesn't have a saucer.  It was sent to me by a lady back east that I purchased a Shelley tea pot from.  Even though it sits without a saucer I think it is still very lovely.  Rebecca from A Gathering Place painted the pretty frame and that's me on my wedding day almost 39 yrs ago.




Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Also thank you to Martha and Terri for another fun Tea Cup Tuesday.

  1. Your teacups are both so pretty. I love the little doll and tray you made as well. I tried following your blog but seem to be having computer problems this morning. I may have to stop back later if it doesn't work this time. Happy Tuesday! Connie

  2. Hi Denise :) Happy Teacup Tuesday! I know what you mean, with Monday being a holiday it kinda throws things off a bit. Feels like today should be Monday, lol :) I adore both of your teacups you've shown us today...both are so sweet & delicate :) But I really love the Shelley cup! I hope to one day have one for my little collection :) What a beautiful bride you were! Your photo looks just perfect in the frame painted with roses by Rebecca :)

    Have a great week!!

    Warmest Hugs, Brenda

  4. Hello you beautiful bride you!!
    Your vignette settings are always the sweetest and so inviting and your teacup selections make my heart go pitter patter!!
    Both teacups are stunning but I must say I've never seen one as delicious as the Shelly with her perfect pink roses and ruffly top edge!
    I hope you find its mate someday and can you imagine how pretty it is!
    Enjoy your TCT Denise!!
    Your budster,

  16. Hi Denise!Nice to meet you. First of all ... I love that tray you have your Paragon teacup on. I remember thumbing through a magazine and seeing a project on how to make a tea tray from an old picture frame. You tea tray is so pretty! I also loved your "orphan" teacup. I have a couple of those too! But to me even without a saucer...they are beautiful! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

  17. Lovely teacups, the 'orphan' teacup would look nice with a posy of flowers. Take care

  21. Hi Denise,
    your cups are absolute beauties but the Paragon one is marvelous. I love the rose buds all around the cup and on the saucers. rose buds decors are my fave: yes, I must admit I have a soft spot for rose decor china.
    have a great rest of the week

  22. Hi Denise! What a beautiful blog you have. I love your TT post. I've got a few of the Victoriana Rose by Paragon teacups and saucers and just love mine, too! Your tray is beautiful that you made ~ I'd love to see a better pic of it ~ it looks like one my parents made for me with little glass feet!

    I'm thrilled that you will be participating with us on the 25th for the Wedding Blog Party! Can't wait to see what everyone shares that dad!

    Big TX Hugs,

  23. Hello Denise- These are lovely. I completely agree with you about Shelly Teacups. Mum has one; I hope one day she will let me have it. It's the one I drink out of whenever I am at her house. Take care.
