Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser Yellow Teacup & Shelley Chintz Plate

Happy Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser's tea blog. 

I am a bit distracted tonight ...I am posting tonight for Teacup Thursday because...lucky me...I am having a root canal tomorrow morning. Oh joy. but...that's nothing compared to what the tornado torn mid west is going through so I am not complaining. I just can't think what it would be like to face something like that...truly terrifying. My prayers are with those who are suffering.  The link on the sidebar for the Japanese earthquake & tsunami can also be used for donations to World Vision who are right there in tornado alley with basic needs for folks.

The teacup I have to share is an Elizabethan, England yellow and gold chintz teacup from the 1950s. The yellow seemed so cheery and bright...and my thoughts needed a bit of lifting. Scripture says to count it all joy when you encounter various trials and I believe that promise! 

To go with this pretty and cheery teacup, I would serve some scones and cream on this rarely seen Shelley China yellow Rosebud chintz in the Dainty shape.  How could you not smile with these around?

Have a wonderful Teacup Tuesday visiting blogging friends and enjoying the lovely teacups. And remember the mid west....


  1. Good morning Ruth,
    I hope you're recovering well from your dental appointment. My, what a week it's been trying to blog and leave comments! I visited the other day but couldn't leave a comment. We'll see how it goes this time.
    Your tea cup is just beautiful! Love the plate too! Yellow is such a bright and happy colour.
    I enjoyed looking at your cup in your previous post too. Thanks for sharing and hope you're having a wonderful day.


  2. Dear Ruth, I have had a root canal too and oh, no fun. I did feel better when it was all behind. me. I love Shelley anything. So sunny.
    Take good care.
