Pink Fuschia Teacup and Other Pink Joys

Hello and welcome! I am combining posts today for Teacup Thursday, Vintage Thingie Thursday and Pink Saturday. The links are at the bottom of the post.




When you were a child, did you spend time popping the buds on the fuschias? I did. About this time of year, the buds and flowers were abundany, and I just loved the muted pop of a ready-to-open fuschia bud. I thought I was helping the plant...although I was probably hindering! Anyway, I love this cup and saucer from the 1960s with a pink fuschia design because it reminds me of that time.  The teacup was made by Royal Vale,  just after it was taken over by Ridgway, England in 1962. I just love the design!


And my take on the ubiquitous Keep Calm signs...I'll drink (a cuppa!) to that!


This photo was credited to Emma Lee, and features a Spode teacup and madeleine cookies...a favorite of mine. With the pink roses, a perfect photo...except I don't take milk in my tea. Apparently...luckily for me...tea has loads of healthful properties, antioxidants, etc...but they are negated by adding milk...which I have never done.  Nice to get some good health news once in awhile!

For more info on the fuschia teacup on Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.

Have a great weekend and visit the wonderful blogs below that I am joining.
Cheers!

  1. Lovely teacup. I think teacups with fuschias must be pretty rare.

  2. I love this! I haven't paid attention to teacups in so long. A sister-in-law has a collection but they've been in storage for more than a decade now. The details on the fuschia cup reminded me of the amazing detail and care that went into making these. What a fun focus your blog has!

  4. Oh Ruth, you sent me back to my childhood. My mom always had fuschias on our front porch and yes, I loved to pop the buds too.
    The cup is lovely.

  6. Lovely teacups, Ruth. The Spode is gorgeous, what I can see of it. I always take my tea black. I think milk ruins it. Happy Pinks and enjoy your weekend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
