Tea Cup Tuesday, First Tuesday in December.

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

I have missed two weeks of Tea Cup Tuesday, mostly because I was working on and somewhat overwhelmed by making new awnings for my antique shop. Sewing canvas on my home sewing machine was hard.   Not the most fun thing I have ever done.  But they are done now.  So back to normal things.

We made our final trip to Leesport Flea market a couple of weeks ago and I found a couple of nice tea cups.  Got them both because they were had red flowers and seemed Christmas like.

When I looked closer I discovered that one wasn't Christmas, it was actually for August Birthdays and featured red poppies.  Since my birthday is in August I figured I "needed" it.

This is the August Teacup that is from the House Of Global Tea.  I tried to locate information on line about this company but didn't.  It is bone china and supposedly was made in England.   While it is very pretty it is obviously not the same quality of Royal Albert.   Royal Albert did make an August Tea Cup which I have.  I will show it another time.  Meanwhile enjoy looking at this one.
This was inside the rim of the cup.
