Teacup Love

When you see a teacup and saucer, do you think, I just have to have that one?  Or do you see all teacups and saucers as "must have's"?  I have to say, I am picky.  If I don't like it, I won't purchase it.

This one is a very pretty flowered cup and saucer.  The inside of the cup has two floral motifs in it, I guess one for a left handed person and a right handed person to drink from and still enjoy the image!
I saw a beautiful set of teacups and saucers on ebay that I almost bid on...except for the fact that the teacups only had outside images on one side of the cup!! And that was only showing if left handed persons were using the cups!  Am I wrong?  Don't you think a cup of tea should at least have an image on the side where a right handed person would use it?  Now I don't have anything at all against a left handed person.  Some of my favorite people are left handed, but I'm just asking a question.  What do y'all think?

This little gem was found at a yard sale.  I just love yard sales.  The more the better!
Be sure and come back tomorrow evening and hook up with me for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!!
I have a GORGEOUS hand painted bowl to share with you that you won't want to miss!!
I'm linking up with all the parties below for the Tuesday Teas! Please go and check out the sites who have joined.

Lovely little teacup, Doni! I never buy anything that I don't like. I have to LOVE it and cannot live without it before I buy anything. I have friends who buy just because it's a good deal, but not me! I'm not a shopaholic and never will be. I enjoy shopping for home items very much but when I don't see anything that strikes my fancy, I leave it there. Thanks for sharing your sweet little cup and have a wonderful evening.

Hi :) I am the same way, I have to really LOVE the teacup to want to have it....the cups that I love to collect all have to have lovely pink roses on it...I'm just CRAZY for pink roses :)

Wishing you a lovely and happy Tea Tuesday :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hi Doni...

Ohhh...I adore your pretty teacup! I really like all the different colored flowers! Hehe...I guess I really never thought about it before...which side of the cup that the pattern is on! Of course, I have just recently begun looking for teacups! I will certainly be paying more attention now! I do really like a cup when it has the pattern on the inside as well!

Thank you so much for sharing your new pretty with us...such a treat, my friend! I'll be back to see that new bowl as well!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Hi Doni!

What a lovely tea cup. Tea cups are a great seller in my shop. I'm always so amazed at the choices people make and what they collect. They certainly are little treasures. Good choice...Enjoy! Karen

Hi Doni!
I Am the same way. If it doesn't speak to me I don't buy it...but I do have many that other's have given me and I love the sentiment behind them.

Happy Tea!

Beautiful Floral tea cup, and how fantastic that you found it at a yard sale! I do not have any Clarence Tea cups yet. I will have to keep a look out for that one.
Thank you so much for sharing it today.

Ro Magnolia said...

Just love your tea cup. And I agree, I only buy them if I really love them, otherwise I just know I'll end up with WAY TOO MANY things to DUST!!! :S

The tea cup I'm featuring today is one I found at a yard sale too. I share your love of yard sales!

Hi: I so glad you joined us again. I always look forward to what you share. I just love the cups you showed us today. I am with you, I never buy a tea cup unless I love it. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Hello Doni- Your teacup is so sweet. I also love a good garage sale. I never gave much thought to the right handed left handedness of teacups before, but you are right. I am right handed but drink my tea left handed. Take care.

Hi Doni...I really love the teacup and thet saucer. The colors are really nice and bright!! I agree with you on two things...I LOVE yard sales. The more yard sales ...the better. I also NEVER buy a teacup if I don't like it. I have to LOVE it, because money is tight...and I want to buy something I know that I'll still love years down the road :) :) have a great day. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

I am like you...each teacup I purchase is a "must have" There is something very special about each of my teacups. Yours is very special. Great that you found it at a yard sale. Its fun knowing where they come from.
Thank you for joining in today. Look forward to seeing next week.
Blwssings, Pam
