Tea Cup Tuesday!

I have a couple of pretty tea cups to share today that belonged to my mother.  She had such a beautiful collection.  The first one is Stratford Elizabethan made in England. 

My second cup by Adderley is such a pretty lavender with a lacy gold trim.  It's simple but so pretty I think.  The Madame Alexander doll belonged to my mother too.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Thank you to Martha & Terri for hosting Tea Cup Tuesday!


  1. Lovely, simply lovely. The lavender one is so pretty. I love the shape.
    Happy Teacup Tuesday!

    These are just stunning but the first one is to die for in my book!! Love the style and the colors of it!!


  11. Hi Ms Denise!
    You always have the prettiest teacups! I really must get some more blue ones! Yours is especially gorgeous!
    And the lavender one is the sweetest shade of violet and I love the simplicity of the design.
    Your displays are always beautiful too and the painted tray is beautiful :-)
