PINK TEA CUPS

Hello, ladies! Today I'm sharing with you three of my PINK cups and saucers.  Two of them belonged to my Grandmother and one was given to me by a friend of my Grandmothers. My Grandmother collected cups and saucers and had TONS of them. Some were passed on down to my Mother who passed some on down to me. It's so special to have something by which to remember my Grandmother and something that was special to her. I mentioned her in the previous post where you can also see a photo of her.
This is a larger view of the bottom cup. It is a Royal Standard Bone China from England.

This is a close up of "Blossom Time" pattern from Royal Albert from England.  This was given to me by a woman named Lottie, a friend of my Grandmother's.

                 This was given to my Grandmother  and is a special one because of the message on it. It is Lefton China.

                           October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH, a disease which has touched many lives in one way or another. My prayer is for a cure for this disease.
I'm joining the following parties: Martha's Favorites

Please go to these blogs to see more lovely cups and saucers and have a wonderful day!

  12. Lovely, lovely pinks. That mother cup with the bird and ribbon...oh my goodness~it is so, so sweet and perfect for the pink ribbon occasion.
    Love Blossom Time as well. I have the sugar bowl to that. Lotte gave you a wonderful gift that keeps on giving. So nice to be able to think of your grandmother like this.
