Pink Saturday, Hand Colored art deco Sweet Pea Teacup

Happy Pink Saturday which I am joining hosted by How Sweet The Sound.

I have a hand colored on grey transferware art deco teacup in a pattern called Sweet Pea by Roslyn England that was made in the 1930s. When I saw it an an estate sale a few weeks ago, all I could think of was Pink Saturday!

Isn't it wonderful? I love the art deco shaped handle as well. These hand colored cups and saucers are wonderful as no 2 are alike. This is hand colored and the the red is hand applied enamel paint. Love it! And some of the blossoms are...Pink!

I have been having a lot of allergy problems lately. A life long thing, actually, but really kicking up at the moment and I don't know why. One of my worst allergens is milk. It gives me severe asthma and hides under various names. Normally, an antihistamine works and I can eat without too much problem, but at the moment none of the usual antihistamines is working well, so I am having to make everything from scratch to make sure there are no milk products.

I have a Vegan cookbook and just tried this recipe of oats, applesauce, raisins, flour sugar and cinnamon and was pleased. They are edible. Not all of the recipes I have tried are. At least I now have something to have with tea while my husband is eating the pecan shortbread I made him!

Have a great day visiting and bathing yourself in pink!


  1. Oh I know how you feel. Mine is mold and fungus, which being in Ohio hits aaalllll year round. I hope you feel better soon. I'd be tickled pink if you'd stop be for my giveaway.

  2. I love the srt decvo style. Sorry about the allergies!

  3. lovely post!
    sorry about the allergies
    happy pink saturday

    much love,

  4. That is a lovely teacup, love those colors. Isn't it strange. I had many allergies some years ago. Got rid of the most of them and now all of a sudden they are coming back. Must be something in the air, I don't know.
    Happy pink Saturday

  5. So sorry to hear of your allergies. My late mom suffered terribly with asthma, so I certainly sympathize.

    The sweet pea pattern is so pretty! What a great find you made!

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  6. Hi, Sweet pea tea cups sound so cute. It's a very pretty cup. Sorry to hear about your allergy. Your cookies look nice, glad you found a tasty treat. Joyous Wishes, Linda

  7. Oh my gosh, this is the most darling little pattern I've ever seen! Just beautiful--I'm following the link over to learn more about it. I hope your allergies resolve soon; at least you found an edible treat to nibble on! :)

  8. Love the colors on it, nice for your collection because it is so different.

  9. Hi Ruth,
    I also love Art Deco style and this pattern with the sweet peas is delicious and unusual.
    Congratulations for this purchase.
    Wishing you to recover from those allergies soon.
    Have a great weekend.

  10. Happy Pink Saturday! Yep, I'm tracking teapots, mugs, teacups and saucers! And several desserts now. I'm sorry to hear about your allergies. If it's got anything to do with digestion problems (intolerance issues) have you checked into Questran or Preva-lite (the generic). I have a post about it on my blog if you think it's something that would benefit you. I can imagine some of the vegan recipes might be a bit flat but nice to find some you like. Hope you get to feeling better - that little teacup and saucer are a great pep-er-upper. And, once again my open ID isn't getting along with Google. So, I'll use my Google account. If you follow my icon you'll need to click on my Google info for my blog website. Thanks, Jenn

  11. Gorgeous and yummy! Happy Pink Saturday!

    My PINK, have a great weekend!

  12. My goodness, you make sweets that you cannot have. I am sure that after this post you will be inundated with tasty dairy free recipes.

    Your sweet peas are the most stylish I have ever seen, and on a tea cup yet!

  13. Allergies,not good,sometimes hard to pinpoint the culprit. Lucky you have found the cause of yours.
    Love the pretty,unusual teacup.
    xx stay well jeanetteann

  14. What a wonderful blog about antique tea cups.
    I'm enjoying it even though I do not drink tea but only coffee.
    But the love of England which I love so much

    With warm greetings from the Netherlands,
