Tea Cup Tuesday

 Tea Cup Tuesday

Here I am with my 4th Tea Cup Tuesday entry.  Last week I told you I had purchased two tea cups when I went to New Brunswick.  Here is the second one.

If you look closely you may notice that this one is very similar to one of the violet teacups I showed a couple of weeks ago. They are both part of a series of Canadian Provincial Flowers.  The violet one, two weeks ago represented New Brunswick.  The one this week is the provincial flower of  Newfoundland and LabradorIt is the Pitcher Plant.  Lovely don't you think.    

It is another Royal Albert tea cup.  I like a number of different brands of the bone china tea cups but Royal Albert is definitely my favorite. 

 Here is a link to more information on the provincial flowers of Canada.

Your teacup is beautiful!! My Mom has a couple from that provincial flowers collection. And I agree that Royal Albert makes some of the most beautiful china!! I have the Memory Lane, and several other individual teacups as well.

Your teacup today is beautiful. I love the black background with the beautiful pitcher plant design.

I must look up the cup for Ontario (where I was born and raised), which I believe would be the trillium, and add it to my collection.
