.Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I posted  this a couple of years ago but thought it would be good to repost now since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month once again.   And since I am still without the use of my right hand while it is still in the cast..............................  To  update this.....  I am getting along pretty well in spite of the cast.  Just slows me down bit.  We even went camping last week so I could attend a car show with my husband.  I will show a few pics of that next week.

For this week, since it is Breast Cancer Awareness month I thought I would show something with pink as a dominant color.  As a Breast Cancer Survivor for 12 years now I think this is a VERY important month!  However, don't forget all the other cancer's that folks suffer with have "causes" that may not be as well "supported."    Remember them and support them as well.... (Enough said... I will get off my little soapbox.)

While at a flea market  my husband found and later surprised me with this beautiful cup, saucer and plate set.  It is from a company I have not heard much about.... Royal Chelsea. 


Royal Chelsea was produced by New Chelsea China Co Ltd Longton. Staffordshire Potteries from about 1943 to 1961. 

    I think they make stunningly beautiful china so I will certainly be on the lookout for MORE!!!

 When I checked out the marks on these pieces I learned that the cup and saucer were probably made prior to 1951.... and this is the mark on them.

The plate's mark was newer.  It was made sometime after 1951 however they still could have been bought together if the store still has some of the older stock, or perhaps they ordered the plate later on.
 I really liked this set and even though Royal Chelsea is a bit new to me I shall be on the lookout for MORE!

After you visit my post today be sure to check out  these other tea posts.

I have joined with the following Tea Cup Tuesday Tea Parties.

They might not all be available every week so check to be sure.

Hope you will visit them too.

A beautiful tribute Beth. Breast cancer affects everyone. My mom is having surgery next month to remove a lump so it is certainly a very personal matter to me and my family.

Happy to learn that you are getting better. Thanks for visiting me. I di appreciate your visits and your kind words.
