Tea Things Tuesday

Hello, and welcome to another Tea Things Tuesday, hosted by our lovely hostess Kim of http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com/2009/11/tea-things-tuesday.html thank you Kim!
I fell in love with this darling little teacup and saucer I found at a flea market a few weeks ago. It is about 3 1/2" across. (you can click on any picture to make it larger) See the sticker still on it? $2.00!! It is Salisbury bone china from England. It has the sweetest, most delicate little roses on it, and trimmed in gold. I had to have it!

This is another sweet little cup I found at an antique store for $4. It is slightly larger than the first one. Just the prettiest little roses, and I love the muted shade of aqua mixed in. I don't know what it is about these little teacups, I just love them. This one doesn't have any markings on it, but it is so pretty. This is a creamer my daughter found in an antique store, and bought for my birthday. It is marked Elizabethan, fine bone china England. I love the shape of the spout, and pretty roses.
Well, that is my post. I hope you enjoyed viewing some of my treasures. Don't forget to stop by Kim's and visit the other participants for Tea Things Tuesday! thanks for coming by for a visit.

Beautiful cups Debbie. I can't believe you found them for the price you did, usually they are much more expensive. The creamer is very pretty!

You have some really pretty tea things. I love miniature cups and am trying to collect them but at the moment have the grand total of one! I am determined to keep searching!

Mary said...

You really found some beautiful bargains, Debbie! Isn't it wonderful to come across such beauties at flea markets and thrift stores, and for such amazing prices?

Your creamer is beautiful...what a sweet daughter you have. You know, I could be wrong, but I think your creamer matches Kim's teapot!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, and thanks for your encouraging comment on my post...one day a a time!

God bless,
Mary

How beautiful! I love tea cups and saucers but I never seem to find any for that wonderful price you did. Thanks for sharing ~

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Hello my friend! These little treasures are just too sweet. Very, very pretty! I've heard there are some great antique and thrift stores in the towns surrounding Hooterville so the first chance I get, I will scope them out so we can do some shopping the next time you visit. :)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oh, Debbie, what a buy! Tea cups and saucers here cost about $25.00.
If you are lucky...perhaps $16.00 but not like the ones you have found. I have a shelf over my couch full of them...and just pickup up a sweet one with a hummingbird on it. I thought of putting it in a "giveaway" as I know many generous bloggers are doing from time to time...and would you believe that this selfish woman balked?? Yes, Yes I did! I am so ashamed. I mean I have a lot of them. I need to do some serious soul searching! :):)
Hugs,
