Sorry for the delay of posts. We had a bout of sickness that just didn't want to leave. Thankfully, we are free and clear now, and it turns out, tea (and cups and saucers!!) was just what the doctor ordered.
I am not a granny collector of tea cups and pots, but I do really love good graphic design elements. My appreciation for tea cups and saucers happened when I was little...my mom had my great-grandma's tea cups and saucers- not a full tea set, but just different patterns. Unfortunately, she lost a few when a rat got in the house, and my dad and big brother went on a sling-shot shooting, broom stick-waving rampage to get said creature out of the house! We actually had a deja vu situation last October when a little mouse got in our house...
When Olivia and I went to that church rummage sale a few weekends back, I spotted a table full of cool. I got each one of these sets of cups/saucers for 50¢ a piece!!! I don't really know anything about these companies (except Wedgewood), but I just loved the patterns on each piece. So, without further delay....
|Just in time! by Hammersley- England|
|Love these colors! "Flora" by Royal Albert- England|
|Olivia's Favorite- Bold and girlie, just like her! Windsor- England|
|Wish I could get a close up of the design...Meito China- Japan|
|I love the yellow- it's under the saucer, too! Informal True China by Iroquois- USA|
|Love Love Love Fire-King!!!|
|It does have a crack that's been repaired...it's just a "looker"...Wedgewood (Tunstall)- England|
|And, my SUPER favorite for now...Porsgrund- Norway|
***K, just looked up my Super favorite from Norway- found out that it is a pattern called Farmer's Rose, and the tea cup and saucer are going for $68 on the site I looked it up on!!! Holy Moly!
