Simply Dogwood, Must Mean Spring is Close!

I know.  It's January.  So?  Can't I hope?
Can't I dream?  Can't I go ahead and at least look at some flowers on the teacups and in pictures?
If I don't get a dose of flowers every now and then, I think I'll just dry up.
They seem to always be what calms and soothes.  They're restful.
And they're just plain beautiful.
Maybe that's why flowers are the main embellishment used by artist's on so many china and porcelain objects!

OK.  So it's January, but who doesn't want Spring to go ahead and be here?
I'm joining the parties below for all the Tea Funnery!!
Come and join us!!
Blessings, Doni

Good morning Doni,
What a sweet teacup! The dogwood is very pretty and does remind one of Springtime. I am so ready for Spring myself! Thank you dear lady for joining me for tea and leaving me such a sweet comment. Enjoy your day.

Good day, Doni,

Your teacup is very pretty. I immediately reminded me of the dogwood tree that stood for many years in my parents' backyard, on a little raised hill, as if a throne. After 50 years, it's gone, but the memory has been brought alive by your darling cup. Thank you.

The design is beautiful, and I especially like the way the artist finished the gold edging to resemble the earthiness of the tree.

I glad I was able to see this. The floral decor on your site are calming.

May many blessings overtake you,

Enjoying the beauty of flowers is a wonderful way to counteract cabin fever and coax spring on.

Your Dogwood cup is gorgeous.

Happy Teacup Tuesday.

I love your blog! You and I have too much in common. Not just the doxies either. I actually have a china teacup collection that my grandmother gave me. She is from England, and she brought them all back to me from her various trips back home. I absolutely adore them! Maybe next visit I will find something else that I have in common with you. LOL.

Blessings, Lisa

Such a beautiful tea cup. I love spring! the bright beautiful flowers are so wonderful to look at. When I'm stuck in traffic on the highway, I focus on teh gorgeous fuchsia bougainvillea that line the roads. Before I know it, I've arrived at my destination :)
