Kim over at Shabby, Pink and Pretty is again hosting Teacup Tuesday.
This dainty little teacup almost did not make it home with me. I found this cup and saucer on one of our trips to the windy city. We actually drove up into Wisconsin to the town of Racine. There were several really interesting places to browse for treasures. We found the Antique mall that was in the old school house. Rooms upon rooms of wonderful old things. After we had spent quite a bit of time in the old school house, we were heading out of town when we saw a sign for a thrift store. It was in the basement of an old church. It was not a very large place, but it was filled with lots and lots of glass ware. I found this cup and saucer, with the marking "Lorraine" Made in England. I almost left it, because the cup was very heavily stained on the inside. But the cute little flowers just beckoned me to "please take me home". The ring of flowers are decorated all around the inside of the cup.
I could just imagine a whole service of this lovely china.
So to my delightful surprise, on our recent trip to Georgia, I found two more cups of this very same pattern. No saucers, but the two teacups are in perfect condition. No grazing and no stains!
So now the mission, if I choose to accept it, is to find two more saucers to match these delightful teacups that I have added to my collection.
Please stop over at Kim's blog and visit the other Teacup Tuesday offerings.
Have a wonder filled day!
