Teacup Thursday, Primroses Art Deco Teacup,Pink Tulips and Purple Crocus

Hello and welcome to a post that includes things for Thursday Tea Things And Talk with Time Was Antiques,  Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser, Vintage Thingie Thursday with coloradolady and Pink Saturday with How Sweet The Sound.






The teacup today is one I have shared before, but I love it so thought it could bear repeating. The design is a spring one of yellow primroses with art deco design trees and a cobbled garden path. I just love the art deco design! The bone china teacup is, of course, from the 1930s and was made by Sampson Smith. So cute! Click the photos for more info at Antiques And Teacups







I know our area, the Pacific Northwest,  is behind most of the country. Our tulips are just coming in, as you can see here, and the crocuses are still blooming. The azaleas aren't any more than buds, and many areas of the country they have all finished already! But we love our color here...late as it is...and I just wanted to share some of our joy!

  2. Love that cobblestone. Charming! My daughter wants to have a tea party for her next birthday party so I'm searching for unique and pretty teacups. I will have to poke around and see more of your teacups!

  6. I love the teacup, the yellow flowers are so cheerful. I see also you are from my neck of the country, the Pacific Northwest, and yes, our flowers are way behind the rest of the country in blooming. Guess that is what makes the blooms all the more precious.

    Isn't tea-time in Blogland wonderful? It brings to my eyes such wonderful treats!

  12. I love your sweet teacup. Yes, definately worth repeating. the garden path is so sweet. My tulips are just coming up also. My early perennials are just starting to bloom. Sounds like we are about in the same place as you. I live close to the mntns. so it puts me about 3 wks. behind the towns close by.
    Hugs,
