Tea Cup Tuesday For First Day of November

Time for Tea Cup Tuesday............
After you visit my site be sure to visit the others at 

Last week I told you about a flea market I visited and I showed produce.  Normally when I attend a flea market one of the first things I look for is tea cups and tea things.  WELLLLLLLL  the picture below is one of just two teapots I found and NOOOOO teacups at all.  Good thing I have been having better luck in other venues lately.

A pretty little tea cup with violets.  No I didn't buy it though perhaps tempted.  In the picture below you will see it on the table with some other tea party things, loved the plates but they were a bit pricey for me.


The second teapot I found I did buy.  It is a Japanese, very fall like with all the leaves.  I just had to have it and the price was right.  It will serve me well in the fall months. It is copper lustre with raised edges of the leaves.    Here are a few pictures of the teapot.  Hope you like it.  I personally love it.

Next I will be showing you another teacup I bought on my trip to Canada this summer.  This one is ROYAL ALBERT, my favorite maker.  This one is also the pattern one of my husbands cousins had.  We loved when she used it when we visited her.  I will think of her when I use this teacup.

This pattern is called Old English Rose and the pattern has been out
of production for quite a few years.    

  More recently Royal Albert made and sold a similar patter ...  Old Country Roses. It is the pattern I have as a full set.  I got it when Royal Albert was still listed as the manufacturer.  The newer ones say Royal Daulton.  Not as good in my mind.  I much prefer Royal Albert.

See you next week.
