Tea Cup Tuesday!

Boy I am running late today!  My first cup today doesn't have much of a story behind it.  I think I just bought it because it had pink roses.  :)  That's a pretty good reason isn't it?  It's by Roy Kirkham and is made in England copyright 1992.  
   
My second cup to share belonged to my mother.  I'm not really sure how old it is.  My mother started collecting cups in the 1950's.  I never thought to ask her about them but i'm sure most of them have a story to tell.   This pretty yellow cup is by Royal Albert.  They always made the prettiest designs don't you think? 



Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Make sure you make the rounds to see everyones pretty tea cups.  Thank you to Martha & Terri  for  another fun Tuesday!

  2. Hi Denise :) Beautiful teacups, especially the first one...yes, because it has roses on it, lol :) I'm a sucker for almost anything that has pretty pink roses. I too like how you matched your pretty dolls to your teacups.

    Happy "Tea" Tuesday!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda
