Happy Teacup Tuesday

Well here we are once again at Teacup Tuesday. Kim has been the gracious hostess and she would love to have you visit her blog.

My offering today is not quite as fancy as some, but it is just as special to me.


My sweet daughter gave me a set of these FireKing cups and saucers for Christmas last year. She found them on ebay, and they are in perfect condition. I had never seen this pattern before, so it was a very delightful addition to my cups and saucer collection.

A few months ago we were browsing in an antique shop and I spied this sugar and creamer set. It's so fun to be able to add serving pieces to the 6 cups and saucers that I already have.

Please stop by Shabby Pink and Pretty and let Kim know that you are enjoying these lovely Teacup Tuesday blogs.

I love fire king stuff. I have some glass containers with glass lids and I have been on the look out for a green batter pitcher for ages....I'll find one yet.

Lovely!! What a wonderful and thoughtful gift to have received from your daughter. I've never seen those FireKing pieces before. All the other ladies who posted before me are right. They would be perfect for a fall/ thanksgiving tea.
