Teacup Tuesday

Queen Anne Bone China #5

Displaying an Ireland Scarf Buckle and a vintage pincushion.
I like how the thistle leaves look like holly leaves! This piece doesn't seem to have
a name like my last teacup post, Autumn Rose.

I want to share with you Martha's Favorites and Terri at Artful Afirmations
as they are the hostesses of this fun Teaparty.

These images are from loose pages of an 1844 Collier's Cyclopedia. I purchased this tin
the 3 magnets, the bottle and the tags from our Library's fundraiser.

The tags are made from old library information cards. So clever! All the papercrafts made from old discarded books were amazing.
You may also enjoy my 1912 postcard in my November post below! It was almost a lost treasure but I am enjoying all my vintage postcards and teacups from Gram and Gramps old farmhouse.

Lovely teacups and tags. The vintage look is wonderful.

Hello Lisa,
Your tea cup is stunning! I do love thistle patterns and your cream cup with pink thistles is so pretty!
It must be very enjoyable to use.
Your pin and cushion are fab, as well as your finds.

Oh, these are wonderful! I have a tea cup collection, too....I am SO glad to hear you were able to rescue that collection of vintage postcards. WOW!

I'm excited to see them on Postcard Friendship Friday!

Merry Christmas!

What a gorgeous collection! You have a knack for the beautiful, no doubt. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time NOT buying fun tea cups. Have a blessed and merry, merry Christmas.

That is a beautiful teacup with all that gold and the thistle pattern. The scarf buckle and pincushion are lovely and the library fundraiser items are great too.
