Shelley Green Daisy Chintz Teacup, Fab Wall Murals

Hi there! It's Thursday today...and time for Teacup Thursday and Vintage Thingie Thursday. We have been having a real few days of summer here with temperatures in the 80s which for us here in the Pacific Northwest is HOT! I know, I know...that's NOTHING compared to what the rest of the nation has been dealing with....and we have been praying for the drought and wildfires all over. Apparently the home we had in north eastern California on a lake by Lassen Volcanic National Park is threatened and many of our friends evacuated. Not good.


Because the daisies are so lush this time of the year, because of the warmth, I am sharing a Shelley China, England cup and saucer in the Daisy Chintz pattern and green colorway...it also came in blue, and I have one of those too (blue being my favorite color) in the Ripon shape which is one of my favorites. The teacups was made between 1940-1966 when the pottery closed.




I just love the pattern! First of all it's chintz which I love, and the daisies are perfect!  What are you drinking your tea from today? Actually...I'll probably be having my tea iced from a glass with the rest of the country this afternoon, although it's in a teacup this morning! I am drinking Murchie's Afternoon Blend from Victoria B.C.

When we were in Port Angeles recently for the Art In Action Sand Sculpture contest (see my previous post) I took photos of a wall mural at the Fiero Marine Life Center at the Community Pier where the sand sculpture contest was held. The murals were done by local artists, and depict the history of the town of Port Angeles. I just love them!



Well I hope you have a wonderful weekend! For more info on the teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photo. Here are the blogs I am joining. 

I won't be posting for the next 3 weeks for Teacup Thursday or Vintage Thingie Thursday as we are having company, family and visiting, as well as just planning to get me away from the computer for a bit...I am planning on using self discipline! I will be back for Thursday Sept 13th. During the time we will do short visits to Victoria and stay at The Fairmont Empress, visit a friend near Vancouver, take walks at the beach, read books and generally chill and who knows what the visitors will want to do!  See you then!

  4. I absolutely LOVE this daisy teacup and saucer!!! Someday I'd like to find one. I'm still drinking my tea iced, but I know that autumn is just around the corner, and then I'll be back to hot cups of tea. :-)

  7. Hi I just found you through your thoughtful comment on my blog. I really love your daisy teacup and saucer. Daisies are one of my favorite flowers but alas the flowers have not been at their best this year.
    I love the shape of the cup and the little pedestal. So refreshingly sassy. I did read your profile and Just love your ninja cat.
    I am a new follower, so will be looking forward to your return. Enjoy you time with family and friends.

  8. I've never seen that daisy chintz pattern before - it is very pretty. The pale green background really compliments the flowers.
