Birthday Teacup

As mentioned in my last post, my friend Angela gave me a beautiful cup and saucer for my birthday.  I’d love to show it to you. 

P5251552Aren’t the colors and floral design lovely.  I’m not sure what kind of flowers these are – what do you think?  


This is an English teacup made by Co-operative Wholesale Society, Ltd. at Windsor pottery, Longton, England in the 1950’s. 


I’ve already enjoyed a cup of black tea in my new teacup.  Once in a while its nice to put aside my sturdy tea mug and use a pretty and delicate cup instead.


My birthday gift also included some other tea themed items.


A feminine notebook with a magnetic closure.  It has lovely graphics and the sheets inside are perfect for any tea lover.

P5251557 These pretty tea time napkins.

P5251556And this Mary Engelbreit chipboard teapot and pretty ribbon should bring out my craft-tea side.  Isn’t it great how tea friends always find the perfect tea themed gifts?

Angela definitely has a good eye for finding great tea things. I love each one of them. I will be curious to see what you do with the chipboard teapots.

Those are all wonderful gifts; it sounds like your friend is the best gift of all though. I found Teacup Tuesday, thank you for mentioning it, it's wonderful.

The teacup is beautiful! My grandmother once had a collection, but gave them all away before I was old enough to use and appreciate them. Some day I think I may start a small collection of my own, though I admit that most of the time I'm happy to drink from a regular mug. Tea with others, though, should call for something more special.
