Teacups in pink

 Beverly How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday go check out the happy pinks. 
All my growing up I remember having tea at home, at Gram's.  And I remember mom always letting us pick the teacup we wanted to drink out of.  Oh how beautiful to relax with a simple cup of soothing tea.  Back then mostly I drank camomile, peppermint or sleepy time and always sweetened with a healthy dose of honey.  I always choose a floral and mostly pink since it has been my favorite colour since I was a little girl.  Years ago my mom split my Gram's teacups between my sister and me.  Pretty elegant sophisticated teacups always make me smile.  These days my favorite teas are English Breakfast, Vanilla Almond, and Earl Grey and I am a cream and honey kinda gal for all of them. 1) picked up in a thrift shop in KS , 2) Currently my favorite teacup picked up in an antique shop in SC, 3) the cream small floral is from Germany,  the tiny green one is from China,  the far left one was my Gram's, 4) was picked up in my time in Europe at a yard sale, 5) the rose is one that a French friend gifted to my mom, 6) both of those cups came from France also. 7) This was probably my all time favorite to drink out of.

This week I visited Bellamere Cottage , I must say I just love the name she picked for her blog.  Go check out her place and sweet what fun she has gotten into.

Oh, I just love all your tea cups! I am a dishaholic and teacups are a particular favorite. I love the little orphan ones you find - the remnants of a once complete set. Happy Pink Saturday!
