Teacup Tuesday and Hasta La Vista

Teacup Tuesday....

This is a Royal Doulton teacup and saucer
Made in England
and the pattern is Malvern.
As far as I have been able to find out I believe this was made somewhere between 1927-1933. It is in very good condition. I am just amazed it could possibly be that old!

Kim at Shabby, Pink and Pretty hosts the Teacup Tuesdays. Be sure to visit her beautiful blog!
As for us, the top dog, big cheese, head honcho, the big kahuna, the chief (husband who wanted to be mentioned) and Steve are now in town and loading up the truck to take to Florida. They will take some stuff and drop it off in Oklahoma and pick up some gear to move on to Florida.
Things are looking up. The gals (daughter, little companion, and me) along with our faithful pocket poochie will take off hopefully before noon tomorrow in a 2 car caravan.
We will be visiting America's home town of Hannibal, Missouri along the way (very exciting) and will also briefly see Chattanooga, Tennessee. We very much look forward to getting to our new destination. I will be thinking of everyone along the way and hope to be able to check blogs a couple of times. So my parting words will be....
Hasta La Vista (see you later)
and thanks Chief Warrant Officer Bircher (big buddy) and Steve (little buddy)

Beautiful teacup Valerie. Love everything about if from the shape to the pretty colors and the flowers.

Sorry I wasn't able to get your link added to my post before it posted this morning. I had it prescheduled and didn't get your Email until too late.

I will try and edit my post to see if I can still get it in somehow.

Have a safe trip and take lots of pictures on your way.

I may be a little biased, but Tennessee is the most beautiful place in the world. You'll love Chattanooga.
