TEACUP TUESDAY

I found this cup and saucer in a tiny little shop that I rarely catch open. A lady who does estate sales owns it and opens it when she isn't busy with her main job. My mother and I stopped by it one day. She spotted it. I didn't get it that day as I saw a piece of sterling silver I HAD to HAVE that day. I went back a few weeks later and purchased this cup. It has heather painted on it, gold trim, the bow is a Campbell Tartan Plaid and Campbell Coat of Arms. I bought it to give my husband's aunt. But, I was BAD and kept it for myself. She was a Campbell, but I'm married to one...at least that was my selfish reasoning at the time.

Though not a tea drinker, I love seeing the tea cups posted on the blogs. They are so pretty & delicate. And you definitely needed that one.
