Tea Cup Tuesday 13 (and a tag)


I have been watching from afar for weeks, and I have to say I love visiting this blog every week. So if you would also like to have a look I have a link on my side bar (if you haven't already had a look, it's been there a while) or you can click HERE. This week I have decided to show one of my tea cup & saucers I hasten to add I am not what you might call a collector, although I do love china tea cups and I use them and most of the ones I have (only a few mind) are all second hand from charity shops. I saw this little set, and  had to have it, well wouldn't you it's a beautiful colour.


And it is just as beautiful in side as it is out! like I say I buy second hand I don't buy them if they are chipped any where but this does have some wear and tear on the gilding. So you see I really am not a collector. I just love tea cups they are so varied and pretty. I hope you enjoyed my first showing.


Now this is for all the none tea cup people ;0) or if your like me tea cups and crafty nonsense lol This is one of the quickest tags I have ever made so excuse me if you will. It's hubby's B'day on Sat. and This will be on his pressy however I am picking up my grand son James today (we haven't had him for a month I have missed him so much) and because we are having the lovely James you know how much time he takes lol (doesn't any grand child lol) I have yet to make hubby's card and there are so many ideas running around my head craft wise too after the fab wk end I have had (see previous post) the steam punk was still there and I thought very male tag I do hope you like it, I also have another new follower today hello and welcome to you I hope you enjoy my crafty journey half as much as I am, as always if you leave a comment I will get back to you as some point this week. enjoy the week and the weather (it's a wee bit cooler today) Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- TH distress inks, Stamps, Paper Artsy and Artistic stamper. ribbon stash.

Beautiful cup & saucer Dawn. I can see why you bought it.. I wouldn't have been able to not buy it too! Lovely knowing it will be safely preserved with you.
Have fun with your grandson & making a card for hubby. Hope he has a great day.xx

What a fabulous find, I also adore the colours. The tag is very effective, sometimes quick ones are. Enjoy the time with your grandson, we're picking our granddaughters up on Saturday to come to our house for a few days, can't wait.

What an awesome teacup and saucer. It's a real beauty, even if it is second hand. I'm like a bull in a china closet, so I could never have a really nice tea cup collection. However, Martha has a collection (and more than tea cups, I might add) that will know your socks off. Glad you got to join the tea cup parade. I celebrate Tea Tuesday. Isn't it ironic that two different blog challenges are on Tuesday and both have to do with tea.

I have never seen such a beautiful tea cup. You did not give the name on the bottom. I would love to try and find one on Ebay. I am so sorry about the Linky on my blog not working. I promise I will do better next week. Please join us again. If you can show this same tea cup it would be wonderful. I know the ladies would love to see it. I feel really bad about what happened. Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

Fabulous tag! The tea cup is lovely! I have several in my collection, a continuation of one that my mom started when she got married.
