Teacup Tuesday

Here we are again at Teacup Tuesday. Thanks to Kim from Shabby, Pink and Pretty, I get to share some of my teacup collection with you :-)

This very sweet teacup belonged to a very special friend of mine. She had quite a healthy collection of English teacups. The bottom of this teacup has a crown and says Bone China Made in England. No pattern name.

The saucer was very heavily grazed, and there was a lot of staining imbedded into the the grazing. I have given it a mild bleach soaking to try to lift some of the stains. The stains are not completely gone, but they are not as noticeable.

I love the little floral spray inside the cup. Such a delight to look at when you are sipping a cuppa.

One day soon I will share with you about the special friend that was the mistress of this teacup.

Have a wonder filled day! Be sure to stop by Kim's blog and visit the other Teacup Tuesday offerings.

What a sweet tea cup! I have to confess that I don't mind the slight staining that happens in the crazing. It just makes me think the cup looks like it was well loved and used!
