Teacup Thursday Rosina Painted On Transfer

Thanksgiving evening. Hope you had or are having a wonderful day. Just dawned on me it is Thursday! And that means Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser! Thanksgiving can do that to a girl!!! So here is my choice today by a favorite manufacturer, Rosina England from the 1940s.

You probably know how I love hand colored on transfer pieces, and this one certainly qualifies! The coloring is just so individual on all the teacups. Rosina began in 1941 by devolving from a split in G. Warrilow & Sons at the Queen's Pottery in Longton, Staffordshire. Warrilow had begun in 1887 and included Queens China. Rosina and Queens continued until 1983 when the pottery was closed. Sigh...

A last 2 photos for Thanksgiving. The first is an English harvest decoration and the second in from the November/December 2009 issue of Victoria magazine.  We had our Thanksgiving dinner with 200 folks at our church, Sequim Community Church, which is a tradition. Our kids are several states away and with in-laws so we love to get together with friends for a potluck Thanksgiving in the fellowship hall. Always fun!

Have a wonderful evening with friends and family. And don't get up TOOO early tomorrow!
