Tea Cup Tuesday Again

  
Here I am again on Tea Cup Tuesday.  Be sure to visit the other sites after you visit me.
   This week I am showing a little teacup I found at the flea market.  I didn't buy it but did take a picture of it to show this week.  I thought it was pretty.  I learned after checking it out on line that this is one of 6 motifs in the Woodland Series.  Each had a different bird on them.  Wish I had known when I saw it, I probably would have bought it and looked for the others.
This one is the Baltimore Oriole.  Other ones include Blue Jay, Goldfinch, Hummingbird, Red Wing, and Robin.  Click here to see all of the teacups in the series.




If you click on the pictures you can see a larger size.  Hope you enjoy my entry today.

A revisit to the flea market

While at the flea market this past week I also took a lot of pictures of the tea items that were available.  I admit I bought a cup and saucer or two or three...........   But mostly I just took pictures to show the variety of things available.  If you want to buy teacups to start a collection or to add to a collection a flea market may be just the place.
 The dark roses on the above set at lovely.
 I think this little sugar and creamer set is Royal Albert because of the shape and style but I admit I forgot to check.  I have a couple of sets with different patterns that are the same style.
 This tea pot and sugar and creamer is by Sadler which makes my favorite kind of tea pots. 
Nice to have the matching sugar and creamer as well.
 This tea set has the moss rose pattern.  Again didn't get the maker name.
And here is one more grouping of cups and saucers that were available.  I love the variety of patterns and cup styles.  You can click on any of the pictures to see a bigger picture.
