My Favorite Things ~Poised in the Workplace with Tea!

Hello friends,   It's mid-afternoon and I am so-enjoying my life on a Friday afternoon.   It's payday again.... I do thank God for his goodness!  So, I paid a few morning bills, processed papers for my supervisors.....

I recently changed to early work hours of 7:00am to 4:00pm.    WONDERFUL!  Soon, it will be time to unplug my teakettle.  Rinse the cups, turn off the cd player and scented dishes.

My heart and mind yearns on a Friday.    For an Estate or Garage Sale set of tea cups!   I stopped by N. Council Rd.  Place mats were $0.50 each...... starched, clean, lacy white placemats.  Eight (8) of them.

Nice lady chatted that she's given into retirement (not cooking much/no parties??).  Fresh linen....naturally calls for a tea party!   I told here such pretty placemats.... "ARE YOU SELLING A FEW TEACUPS?"  She laughed and shook her head in a "NO!"

Joyfully - I pd the few bucks.... also for a plastic set of eight (8)!!

So, my afternoon is here.   I close the door, make my table setting across from the computer.....

This is the day.... the Lord hath made.... and I am able to rejoice and "BE GLAD IN IT!"
Just below the last picture, I always check E-Bay for the age, description and price of my Garage Sale Purchase/Tea Cups!

Vintage Tuscan Fine bone china footed tea cup and saucer. Hand painted pink and yellow roses out lined in black. Has the Tuscan backmark on both pieces. Made in England. Tea cup measures 2 7/8 inches tall by 3 3/8 inches in diameter. The saucer measures 5 1/2 inches in diameter.

This lovely Tuscan tea cup and saucer features a rose design. The tea cup has a pink rose and bud on one side and two tone pink and yellow rose and bud on the other. The scalloped saucer has pink roses and buds and a two tone rose and bud. Both pieces have gold edges, the tea cup has gold on the foot and handle. The condition is good on both pieces, no chips or cracks or utensil marks.

Signing out with happy thoughts!

  1. I love Tuscan HANDPAINTED teacups. I think they are so much more unique than decals and older of course. Yours looks like the l930's - 40's to me. Your placemats are lovely. So glad you shared at Tea In The Garden!

  2. Hi Beverly,
    Your Battenburg lace place mats are gorgeous! A great bargain you got too. Thanks for sharing and joining me for tea. Have a lovely week.



SO glad you stopped by to make this world a better place !
