Choosing your favorite teacup is HARD.

I am still participating in the Grow your Blog party and you will see my post after this one about that. But it is TEACUP TUESDAY and I must be posting about that!   So if you are here for the GYB party enjoy this one first.     And thanks for any comments you might wish to add to either post.

 For this week's Teacup Tuesday I am joining with Sandi from   Rose Chintz Cottage for her special anniversary party where participants are choosing and showing their favorite tea cup or teapot. 


How to choose my favorite tea cup..wow.... Sort of like having to pick your favorite child................

I do have a favorite manufacturer...... Royal Albert.......
So perhaps I can choose between some of them that I have.....  Or maybe not.  I have some I really like that are not Royal Albert.

But oh dear, oh dear, oh dear,  which one.
 I love the glorious red of this one....................
 And this one is covered with such dainty little roses...............
 The golden edge of this one makes it quite an elegant one..................
And I do think wild roses are sweet and very special.............


BUT if I have to chose.... and if you know me well.......... you know I will pick one with the VIOLETS....  And what better one than this Royal Albert Provincial Flower one..........  The New Brunswick Violet.   Since my mother in law was from New Brunswick and we still have  family there
we visit often.  So this is a special tea cup.  In addition when I was in college the violet was the flower of my sorority.   I have lots of wild violets growing in my yard too.  It just means a lot to me.
And besides all that,  I happen to think this is the most beautiful cup I own.  I own a lot of tea cups, I sell a lot in my shop BUT this will NEVER be sold by me in my shop.





Sandi also asked if we had a favorite tea pot.  I don't really but I do have a favorite creamer and you will just never guess.... LOL.... how it is decorated.    Yep.... more violets........
Here are the tea parties I will be joining this week.  Hope you will visit them too.

Remember, these may not be available every week so check to be sure.
