Teacup Tuesday

Joining so many wonderful blog tea parties today...Teacup Tuesday,  Tea Pot And Tea Things Tuesday with Wanda Lee and Pam, Tea Time Tuesday with Rose Chintz Cottage, Tuesday Tea For Two with The Plumed Pen  and more!

Because this is a St. Patrick's Day edition, I wanted to share green...but I don't have much. But I do have some green a few shamrocks at either of my websites Antiques And Teacups or Time Was Antiques.

This is one of my favorites. I think the color and design is lovely, it's from Royal Grafton, a favorite china company and I loved the heavy gold embossed borders. For more info, click on the photos.

This is by George Jones & Sons and is a great art nouveau celtic design. I love it! The pattern is called Shannon and it was made around 1910.  For more info, click the photos.

I'll be sharing some shamrocks this week so that will be fun! Enjoy the other teacup parties and have a cuppa with a friend!
