Pretty teacups everywhere…

“We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.”

Oooh! So pretty!! I have been searching for years to find some pretty tea cups like those here (though, admittedly I haven't looked much further than here in Darwin ... too scared of damage in the mail!) and, alas I still haven't found anything. I do love my tea ... but I don't really love drinking it out of coffee mugs -- which is all we have here.
What I would do to drink a deliciously hot cup of tea (or two, three, four...) in one of those gorgeous cups!! Enjoy your fortune - they are just precious!!!!

Delicate and pretty....I feel like I need a fancy hat and gloves to join the tea party.

Vikki, these are so lovely. Teacups always bring back memories of afternoon visits to my grandmother's house when I was a girl.

I love the teacups. They would fit right in with those I have (and use). Looks like you are all set for a wonderful afternoon tea.

Tea always tastes so much nicer out of a lovely cup
Oh and it has to be made in a pot
No tea bags for me

Hey Vikki! Thanks for playing along with Liz and I for our "Show Us Your Teacups" challenge! :0) Isn't it fun to bring the pretty teacups out to admire? I think part of their charm is that they remind us of days gone by when they took time out for a cup or two or three of tea, a chat and a rest, while today we fill up the biggest mug we can find and drink it on the go. I bet there were a lot less stree-related illnesses back then! :0) Hmmm ... I think I hear the kettle calling my name - enjoy your cuppas! :0) Bear Hugs KRIS

OH Vikki...we soooo have the same taste! I love every one of those teacups. I actually stopped in at an antique shoppe on our way home from our show yesterday and bought a really pretty pink one myself!
Have a sweet day my friend!
