My Teacup

Hi everyone. I hope your weekend is going well. I was going though my favorite blogs this morning and saw all the buzz about Belle Blanc's favorite teacup action-giveaway. I have been reading (ok lurking, I've been caught) her blog through the White Living blog. She always has beautiful pics, and I enjoy reading the stories she tells. So being who I am, I love a good party so I decided to join in.
This is my favorite teacup and it comes with a funny story. When I had my own shop in Philadelphia (before I moved to Atlanta), I had a friend who sold antiques next to me. We always had after hours Saturday cocktails. While there I spied this little beauty, sitting there calling to me. At first I ignored the pull she had on me. So all day that Sunday and Monday (we were closed on those days) I thought about the little teacup. So Tuesday morning I ran down before I opened and told my friend to hold the little lost teacup. My friend laughed and said "I know you, thought about it all weekend? " I just smiled went down and opened up. So she went home with me that evening. I have a lot of teacups (I love tea and coffee), but this is the one I always pull out when its just me enjoying a nice cup of tea (usually Blueberry tea, yum!).

  1. Beautiful little teacup. Love the design. You sound like me. I get something in my head then I just have to go back for it! Have a wonderful Sunday.

  2. I know what you mean... when there is something my heart is yearning for, I can't pass. Your cup is beautiful with all the little blue roses. I saved the picture to make my decision. Have a good time, Mira!

  3. How you could not love this teacup?! I know how you felt...sometimes there is something that just calls your name, pulls a string to your heart and you are gone. It's a lovely feeling isn't it? :)

  4. Thanks so much for your sweet comment and prayers. I am grateful! I LOVE that teacup. course I love blue and white anyway, and blueberry tea sounds delicious. I know how it is when something is just beckoning to you and will NOT leave you be.~ meant to be??? :-)
    Glad you got it and it makes you have happy moments. Have a great day julie
