Teacup and Tea Pot Tuesday Royal Stuart Teacup, Prince William Engagement mug

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day and gave & received love with friends and family. Hopefully random acts of kindness filled your day with sunshine regardless of the weather outside!





My teacup to share this week with the Teacup and Tea Pot Tuesday with Wanda Lee and Pam, Tea For Two Tuesday, Rose Chintz Cottage and others is a pretty Royal Stuart, England cup and saucer. I especially like the shape of the saucer. I love the floral bouquets. Makes me think of spring, and I know, for a lot of folks, it can't come soon enough this year!










For more info of the cup and saucer at Antiques And Teacups,  just click on the photo.


To go with it, here is a Bavarion teapot from the 1950-1960s by Bareuther that I love. I really think the pattern looks like the embroidery on a dirndl! To see more photos and info for the teapot at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photo.







We have finally received a few of the English bone china mugs we ordered for Prince William and Kate's engagement. They are lovely, and very nicely made by Trent China, England. To see more photos and info of the mugs at Antiques And Teacups just click on the photo.


Thanks for the good wishes for our anniversary (actually on this Wed Feb. 16th) but celebrated this past weekend in Victoria B.C. Canada at the Victoria Tea Festival. We had a great time. I will be posting photos & infos from the Victoria Tea Festival starting tomorrow. It was a lovely time!

Have a great day and enjoy the other Tuesday Teacup posts and have a cuppa with a friend!  I have a brunch date with the ladies from my bible study...so let the tea flow!
