Teacups for Tuesday

Once again I am joining Kim for her Teacup Tuesday. Wow what a wonderful variety of teacups have been shown. Please be sure to check out the other Teacups that are being offered today.

My teacup today is called Royal Patrician.

Fine bone English china with very sweet delicate pansies.

Just had to take a solo picture of the saucer. It is so beautifully decorated.

A very sweet friend came to stay with me a few years ago. She brought me this lovely teacup which had been purchased in Amish Country. I love the delicacy of the flowers. And of course the flower overflowing inside the cup invites you to take a sip of Earl Grey, or English Breakfast tea.

My favorite flavor of tea is Mango. But if you are ever in the Toledo Ohio area, you must stop by Clara J's Tea Room and order their Neapolitan tea. It is more of a dessert tea, but oh my!! is it ever delicious. Clara J's is located in Maumee. Her web site is www.clarajsat219.com.

One other thing that is great about Clara J's. There is a Quilt shop right across the street!!! Now what could be better then that?

Oooo very pretty cup and the saucer is so pretty you almost don't want to put the cup down. Earl Grey and English Breakfast are the two teas I always have in the cupboard.
