Just then the door opened and Deborah returned, bearing a tray that must have weighed an hundredweight, loaded with bread and butter and small cakes and sandwiches and pots of tea and little dishes of jam. It looked hearty and comforting like a nursery tea, and I would have been thoroughly pleased had Deborah not interrupted her mother just when she had seen fit to drop such an interesting titbit into conversation. - from Silent on the Moor by Deanna Raybourn
It seems that all my teacups have now made an appearance on Teacup Tuesday posts. There hasn’t been time lately to comb thrift and antique stores to find any new ones. Traveling three or four days a week to watch my sweet grandbaby really cuts down on available computer time. Perhaps you won’t mind if I show some of my cups again – this time filled with tea.
This bone china cup is made in England by Windsor. It was a birthday gift from my friend Angela at Tea With Friends.
This black and white teacup is from the Spode Blue Room Collection in the Geranium pattern. This collection also has some beautiful pieces in blue and yellow, which is a favorite color combination of mine.
This pretty cup is made in England bone china from Royal Albert. It is the Moss Rose pattern. I’m not sure what kind of tea is in the cup, but for some reason it makes me want a nice cup of Dragon Eye oolong.
