This teacup and saucer was part of a set of dishes owned by my paternal grandma, Ima Lois Pounders nee Muston . . . she was born 105 years ago today . . .
It is beautiful!
Thanks, Carol . . . I keep it sitting where I can enjoy seeing it . . . I have a teacup from an early set of my Mom's also . . . will share that one on another day . . .
FYI . . . did y'all know that January is National Hot Tea Month . . . y'all also might enjoy a visit to . . . Annie's "Time for Tea" Page . . .
Beautiful teacup and a precious treasure of your grandmother Ima's. I love the delicate rose pattern. I have a very unusual German teacup set from my Oma...will have to share that in photos sometime. Also, I have the almost exact same Egyptian perfume bottle, as the one in your photo. I am using it for Oma's tearbottle. The shape on mine is more like a tear drop but the colors are the same. I may use that in my photo for today! Still haven't come up with my photo for today! I did learn that January is "National Hot Tea Month" from you last year Vickie...thank you for that.
I had an outdoor shot in mind for my photo for today, but I did not like how it turned out . . . so I set up the tripod in the house and took this no-flash shot . . . today was a good time for this photo anyway . . . Grandma's birthday and Hot Tea Month . . .
It was a perfect time and a great shot. I am really having issues with my lighting. I do not have a tripod...may have to work on that and see how I do.
LOVE that you posted this today! I sat in the living room today admiring my teacup and thinking of Granny's sweet tea and icebox cookies.
Lovely! Using the existing light was just perfect for this image!
