Tuesday Events

Tea Cup Tuesday, co-hosted by Martha at Martha’s Favorites and Terri at Artful Affirmations.

The teacup I’d like to share for Tea Cup Tuesday is "Summer Beauty" by Roslyn, fine bone china made in England.

The gilt edged cup and saucer has a floral motif in pinks, white and yellow with green leaves. The cup has the floral motif on both sides of the cup as well as on the inside.

The saucer has gently curved edges:
I've set this break-time vignette with a few items from thrift stores. The floral picture in the oval wood frame is19" tall x 16" across. The cost was $3.00 plus tax.

Enjoyable browsing is right at hand with two Mary Engelbreit Home Companion books, "Collections" and "Plates." They were $4.98 each.

The Roslyn teacup and a salad plate from Heinrich & Co., made in Germany, provide for a leisurely cup of tea and a scone.

The teal cloth is one of four 19" napkins from a thrift at 25 cents each. They have a pleasing pattern in a tone on tone -- a square in the center and a wider border.

I am also linking to the following blog events:
