~ Petite Tea Cups ~

As my family and friends know, I collect teacups of any size, pattern or color. I especially love three legged teacups, they seem to be harder to find these days so when I see one I get very excited!. There is a story behind so many of my teacups and teapots. My friends and family have helped with my obsession of collecting teacups and I thank them!. Just a few to share with you today are some of my petite teacups, they are two inches small.



The teacup on the right with the pink flower inside was a gift from my dear friend Jackie for my birthday. I love this little cup the detail scroll work is just beautiful and it's a three legged teacup. Funny thing happened the weekend of my birthday Gary and I went antiquing at one of my favorite shops in Modesto and low and behold there was one so similar to the one Jackie bought me I just had to buy it, and so I did.




I have a tea room full of teacups and treasures. The room is right off of the front room. I have been adding things lately to this room and will share them with you very soon. Another sweet gift for my birthday was this petite tea light it stands 3 1/2 inches small and look it's red!.

Wishing you all a tea lightfull day!

They are soooo beautiful! I love the RED teapot, too!

Funny, I just purchased an odd 3-leg cup and saucer recently at a thrift shop. I think I'll show it on Vintage Thingies Thursdays tomorrow! Come check it out!
