Teacup Tuesday–Royal Stafford & Homer Laughlin

It’s Teacup Tuesday again and I believe this is week sixteen for me.  Today I have a favorite cup that has been on my blog before, but perhaps you haven’t seen it.

I’ve had this teacup for several years and it was a yard sale find.  It is a pretty pale blue with a lovely single rose pattern.

It has lots of pretty gilding on the foot and around the scalloped edges.  It is bone china made in England.

The teapot is by Homer Laughlin in the Skytone pattern.  I purchased it in Paducah, KY when I was there in 2000 for the American Quilter’s Society show.

Today I’m having a cup of Harney & Sons Citrus Green tea with a chocolate chip cookie.  This sounds like an odd combination, but it was good.

Enchanting teacup, and I DO love Homer Laughlin! It was the principal china on my Mammaw's table when I was growing up. I have a few pieces of the Old Rose pattern, and my favorite is the pieplate.

I love old dishes, no matter how battered, though I would not use a chippy piece for food usage. But Mammaw's old pieplate---there's a chip on the rim, where the gold line has faded to a whisper, and the roses are just shadows on the glass.

We'll be using it for a KARO pecan pie for Thanksgiving, as usual, with no apologies, but lots of memories.

Thank you for sharing your pretties today!!

My sister-in-law and I took my mother-in-law to Paducah last year for the quilt show. What a charming little town! I managed to bring home some goodies with me as well - several yards of fabric and a charming set of Art Deco dress clips. Hooray for trips!
