February begins and hearts turn to valentines, the color red and TEACUP TUESDAY!!!
My teacup choice today for Teacup Tuesday with Terri & Martha and Rose Chintz Cottage, Teapot & Tea Things Tuesday and many others is a vintage Wedgwood England Moss Rose pattern teacup in Queen's Ware and the Edme shape from the 1940s. I love the elegant, classic lines. Moss Rose was produced from the early 18th century in various incarnations by hundreds of different potters, and Wedgwood is one of the finest quality examples.

I love old postcards and there are wonderful ones for Valentine's Day. This is of the Real Photo Romance genre of antique postcards and dates to the Edwardian age...like Downton Abbey! Didi you see the last episode??? WELL...no...that's another post....
This isn't exactly a teacup with a saucer...but a teacup it can be filled with assam or darjeeling! It's by Dunoon England in a pattern called Buckingham and was made in 2002. I just love it! Dunoon is a favorite place to visit in the town of Stone, England just outside of Stoke-on-Trent when we are in England. They used to stock lots of English cottage designs that we sold for years in our bricks and mortar antique & tea items shop and were so sorry when they fazed them out about 6 years ago. Sigh...
As a Teacup Tuesday relative newbie...I have a question....where do you get the linky things and should I have one as well??? You probably think, duh...but I don't know. Would love comments & instructions! I'm someone pretty non-techie & am blown away by all your blogs and how beautiful they are. Mine's kinda utilitarian, but fun to do!
