Tea Cup Tuesday, First Tuesday in February

 Tuesdays seem to come faster and faster..........

After you visit my site be sure to visit the others at

ALSO: Rose Chintz Cottage

This week my teacup to share is a pretty one with dainty pink flowers.  I don't know the pattern name but it is from The Royal Vale, an English Company.  I looked on the internet and found lots of Royal Vale patterns but not this one.  So don't really know what to call it.

And for this week's tea book I am showing you this one called
A Perfect Cup of Tea
Edited by Pat Ross
The text of this  was originally written by Arthur Gray back in 1903.    Pat Ross has added the text and added illustrations.  It is loaded with vintage pictures, tea ads and ads for beautiful China of that time.  I enjoy perusing it every so often just to appreciate those ads.  Check it out.

And come back next week to see what I have found.

A pretty little tea cup and saucer. Your hankie goes nicely with the pattern of the china. Pat

What a pretty teacup. And the napkin or hanky is a perfect match.

Precious pink flowers on your Royal Vale teacup and saucer. The flowers on the hankie look exactly the same. The book has a lovely cover. Happy Tea Party! Pam
