Teacup Tuesday

Happy Tuesday. It's time for teacups!!!

Normally I tend to collect the older patterns that probably would have been used by middle class America; however, once in awhile I run across something that catches my eye and snatch it up.

This set was made by burton + Burton and is the Rosewood pattern. It is brand-spanking new and is microwave and dishwasher safe (gotta love that!). I got this at the cutest little shop here called Millie's. Now rumor has it that the shop owner named this shop after her grandmother and she has pictures of her grandmother up behind the counter. Oh ya, I teared up over that... so sweet. So, since it is PRACTICALLY IN MY OWN BACK YARD, I'll go back there and maybe meet the owner one day.

Kim hosts this Tuesday get together over at Shabby, Pink and Pretty (http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com/) and always has something beautiful to share. Thanks Kim!

Valerie, I didn't realize that we were neighbors! Where is Millie's? I'd love to take a peek in her shop.

Hi Valerie, I can't believe that this teacup is new! It sure looks vintage, but new and microwave safe - wowzee! I love the color and the pattern - never met a rose I didn't like, and this one is gorgeous! I'd love to shop at Millie's - it sounds like such a sweet place. Yes, keep going back and buy more to show us!

Well I would not have taken that as new, it looks like an heirloom!

Happy Teacup Tuesday!

Oh my gosh Valerie... What a beautiful teacup and saucer. I can't believe that it's not old. Sure likes like it would be. Hard to believe that you could even put it in the microwave. What a wonderful addition for you to have in your collection. That Millie's shop sounds like it would be just the kind of place I would enjoy spending some of my money at.. :-)

Oh My this is such a beautiful teacup. I especially love the base of the cup. Lucky you to have a nice little shop so close to you.

Hi Valerie! What a stunning cup and saucer. I am a total sucker for roses on porcelain -- and with that incredible rich color -- I think that cup and saucer needs to come and vacation here in New Jersey, don't you? :-)

Lovely pieces -- and what a sweet story about the little shop.

I have no new teacups and have promised not to buy anymore. But I have not decided I have enough chickens and roosters yet.
