Tea Cup Tuesday!

Yikes I am late again this week!  But I did make it!  My first cup I'm sharing today was a gift from my aunt.  She is the one who started my collection and for that I am so grateful.  It's stamp says made in USSR.  I saw a lot of these in shops when I went to Alaska.  I bought my niece the tea pot when I was there but for some reason I didn't have the sense to buy myself one!  

My second cup was given to by my daughter in law.  It belonged to her grandmother and she asked me if I would like it.  How lucky was that?  I just love it!  It's a very dainty design and the cup is quite thin. I guess people used to use them rather than just display them but not me!  

Thank you again to Martha & Terri for another fun Tuesday!


  1. oh i love Havilland.. my all time fave after Royal Albert.. now you got such lovely teacups! love it!

  2. A big thank you to your Aunt for starting your collection with such a lovely cup from Russia! I'm a big Havilland fan and what a nice gift from your daughter-in-law. You are getting all the relatives involved in your collection! Wonderful!

  3. Hi Denise, This is the first time I've ever seen a cup that is made in the USSR! How wonderful to have one in your collection :) And even before reading about your 2nd cup I could tell that it was a Limoges...and what a beautiful cup it is, and how special to have it given to you by your DIL :)

    Happy Teacup Tuesday!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  4. Hi Denise!

  7. Lovely teacups, I agree with everyone, never seen one from USSR and it is a wonderful color of blue.

  8. Very beautiful, never seen a tea cup made in USSR....Love it.

  9. Hi Denise,

    What a beautiful teacup with pink roses! My favorite! How nice it was from your daughter-in-law. thanks for sharing it with us.


  10. Nice cups, beautiful. I have seen Russian pots and cups and they often are blue and gold combo like this one...gorgeous, aren't they!

  11. Oh wow Denise that first one from Russia is amazing, what a fabulous cup and saucer. A person could decorate a whole house around that cup!
    The other 2 are lovely also but I have to say that first cup will linger in my memory for quite awhile! Thanks for showing it!

  12. Hi Denise!
    You always showcase the prettiest teacups! So elegant and sweet just like you :-)
    I've never ever seen a mark from the USSR and it must be very rare! It looks so similar to flow blue. And looks handpainted? Can you imagine making such precise delicate lines!
    I see you added some new pics of your gorgeous roses and I didnt know there was a LeAnn Rimes . . . so there must also be a Carrie Underwood too!
    Hope you are keeping cool in sunny CA!!
    Big Hugs and Smiles,

  13. Denise, both your cups are gorgeous! I love the blue and gold one from the USSR. That is a really fab cup and saucer!
    And your limoges is so very pretty. I have some similar and I love them.
    Thank you for sharing them both with us today.

  14. And you can't have mine ;)
    I love the Havilland cup.

  15. Hi: You shared a Haviland, Limoges. My heart just skips a beat when I see Limoges. They are so beautiful. Thank you for always sharing such beautiful treasures with us. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha

  16. Hi Denise,
    What lovely teacups....they are all exquisite, but I was enchanted with the one from the USSR.
    I have not come across anything from there in my travels...I love Haviland, Limoges and have plates and two cups and saucers in that very pattern!

  17. Hi Denise- These are two lovely teacups. The one from USSR is just a joy to see. The paint is so elegant and playful. They both have such lovely memories attached to them. Thank you fro sharing them and take care.
