A return to Tea Cup Tuesday

 Because I have gotten away from Tea Cup Tuesday visits due to the illness I had and life in general I thought I would get back to it by reviewing some of my early posts.  Many of you new folks wouldn't have seen them anyway.

I first discovered Tea Cup Tuesday in August of 2010...  a bit over 5 years ago.  And I kept with it pretty well since one thing I have is a LOT of teacups!!!!!

I have noticed that some of the old Teacup Tuesday posters have changed things a bit and I imagine I shall as well............... but........ for my first one back........  here it is.
Today I am going to go back to that very first blog entry....

I have collected tea cups for the 49 plus years of my marriage (50 in Jan.) due to the fact that my husband's family is Canadian and bone china is often what they give for wedding presents.... at least they did back in those days.

 I have pretty much been collecting ever since...............
Having an antique shop helps too because it gives me a chance to upgrade my tea cups fairly often. I don't have to feel guilty because I can always say I am buying them for my shop.  But.....  they may visit in my house for awhile.

Today I am going to show you one  of my favorites and probably one of the first I got. It is called silver birches by Royal Albert.  I love birch trees so it especially nice. We actually have a couple in our side yard in this house.  The first picture is the cup straight up, then on its side and finally one showing you the bottom.

I do love Royal Albert tea cups.  Probably my MOST favorite maker.  

I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane.  I shall attempt to get back here every Tuesday from now on..............

Join me again next week.  I already know what tea cups I am going to show you!

And check in on Friday to see what I have been doing in the Quilt World!

Here are the tea parties I will be joining this week. There are only two this week but I hope you will visit them too. There are lots of links to more things. I will also be adding this post to Sandi's new party...........    NO PLACE LIKE HOME
