A Peek Inside ~ The Teacup Room ~

A peek into what I call our Tea Cup Room. This is a view from the dinning room.

A closer look inside, I love these two chairs they are so cozy and comfortable. Gary and I go into the Tea Cup Room every chance we get to just relax and talk over our day. I do believe we have solved the worlds problems from these two seats.
The picture you see between the cream hutch and floral chair is one of our many favorites, its a photograph by "Scanlan".

We love this little lady with the big feet!. We call her Mrs. Doubtfire.
The candle chandelier we bought 10 years ago on vacation. It use to be sliver now its white with red and green beaded garland wraped around it.
The pink and white Noratake china you are seeing, Gary bought while stationed in Okinawa in 1969. He shipped them home for his Mom. My Mother N Law has passed them on to me and I cherish the thought that he would buy such a lovley pattern all on his own at the tender age of 21.




This little tea pot night light, lights up the top of the tea cup hutch very nicely at night.

OOps you can see the cord from the old radio. I will have to practice taking pictues a little bit more. Anyway the crewel embrodery pillow you see on the little yellow chair I made in 1975 while commuting to jury duty. It has held up very well don't you think?
All my beautiful nieces and nephews pictures. I must have my family pictues all around the house. I love them all so much!. The lamp I emblished with beads and trim. Another "Scanlan" photograph above the little ones pictures.
My Sister N Law Gwenn gave me this old radio, I just love it and it still plays!.
I could not resist the mouse on top of the grandfather clock. He's so cute! He is all that is left out of three. So I hope he does not decied to climb down and get himself hurt or even broken.
I made the white knitted pillow and the nine patch quilt pillow out of extra fabric I always order when I purchase furniture. You just never know what you might want to make. The green lamp below is also emblished with beads and trim. The precious new born baby picture is my Grandson Ty he is now 3 1/2.

The crochet afgan and green floral pillow I made. Busy hands are happy hands.
The counted cross stitch tea cup (Gary's Favorite) and tea cup sampler I stitched a few years ago.
A closer look at the afgan. The counted cross stitch doily over the back of the lounger was made by my niece Amber, this was one of the first stitchings she ever made.

You just can't have a Tea Cup Room without an Angel.. This is my Granddaughter Aleena at age 2 1/2 she will be 10 in September. How time fly's!

Some of my Favorite books they were given to me by my good friend Shirley. The lovley one holding the tea cup is my daughter Bernadette.
A few pictures of my tea cup collections, I have them spread throughout the house and will share more as time goes by.



This lovley Irish Tea set was given to me by my Grandma.

Imagine my delight, after checking your blog lastnight and not seeing a post, to see your post this morning!!

A TEA CUP ROOM!! It's beautiful! I just love it...all the dainty cups/saucers, lovely furniture ~ and the china...I sold a set of that last year, when I was selling on eBAY. I didn't want to part with it myself...but it was the 5th set of china I had and trying to store it was a wee bit difficult.

Keep posting......

~Blessings,
Jan

What a lovely room! I could happily spend hours reading or just enjoying all of your treasures. It is so wonderful that you have items passed down to you, and that you cherish them.

I use many of the teapots/teacups in my collection. Do you use yours?

Thanks for sharing! Chris
