~Part Two 3 legged Tea Cups~

Part Two of the Three Legged Tea Cup Post~For your viewing pleasure.



















 Now for a quick peek into the Tea Cup Hutch. I also have Tea Cups  without three leg's and some with  fluted bases.





 And of course every proper lady must own a pair of gloves..these beautiful hand made gloves belonged to my Grandma Mable. The drawn work on the linen cloth that the gloves are laying across Grandma made..
 My Grandma was quite the lady who always dressed and loved to cook, she would always let you know if you were being proper or not. Manners were of great inportance and  foolishness was not allowed with her, although as kids we were able to do anything we wanted under Grandpa Walter's watch...He was a darling!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my ever growing collection of Three legged Tea Cups. Maybe its a silly thing to collect but I enjoy the patterns so much, and they bring back an era when people actually took the time to sip tea and visit.
You all have a sweet week until we meet again.

Hello dearest Elizabeth,
Did I ever tell you that for a long time, when I was a lot younger, I wished that my name was Elizabeth. It's such a pretty name.
I love your three legged teacups, they are very rare, I think. I have almost never seen them, and I always look at the teacups when I am thrift store shopping or in an antique store.
You have an impressive collection!
Hugs, Cindy

I had some teacups one time - but none so pretty as yours. I love the little legs on them - and the patterns and colors are delightful.
