Teacup Thingies Tuesday

Hello, and welcome to another Teacup Thingies Tuesday hosted by Kim of http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com/2009/11/tea-things-tuesday_16.html Thank you Kim for being are hostess today! The first item I am sharing with you today, is a miniature bone china chintz tea set. I bought it from e-bay many years ago. Isn't it adorable? There is no markings on it, but the pattern is like the teacup in the second picture. This teacup is in the pattern called Bethany, and is made in England. The pattern is the same as the little tea set only the blue flowers are not as vibrant. You can click on the pictures to make them bigger. See my little tea spoon with the teapot on it? My niece sent this to me for my birthday. I have never seen spoons with little teapots on them.


This is a little Limoges trinket box, given to me by my daughter for my birthday also. It is about 2" high, and is just so cute. I love anything with a teacup!


If you flip it over, the bottom opens up. How cute is that?



Well, that's it for my post today. I have to share some of my goodies for next time. Don't forget to check out Kim's blog for a list of other participants, and to see their pretty tea things. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Hi Debbie! What a darling mini tea set, and a beautiful teacup! Bethany is a great maker, especially in chintz. I have several of those little spoons with a teacup on the handle...aren't they just adorable?!

Your little teacup trinket box is just too cute...what a sweet gift from your daughter.

I'm like you...I love anything that even resembles a teacup, or teapot! The more, the merrier!

Happy TTT! God bless!
