Tea Cup Thursday

I am sharing Tea Cup Thursday with Miss Spencer.

Happy St. Patty's Day to all my Tea Loving Friends. This is a day of eating, drinking and being merry. I hope this day was just that. I also want to wish all a pot of gold for the coming year.

A Royal Halsey-Very Fine

This is a lovely pink cup I purchased from the Historic Hearthside House Gift Shop. I have had my eye on this cup for quit awhile now.

 "Royal Halsey" very fine china cup and saucer. The cup is scalloped in design. The inside is plain and looks like Mother of Pearl with a beautiful floral design. The outside is pink and trimmed in gold with a gold handle   The saucer is also scalloped with gold trim and a floral design

This is very dainty and very fitting for a "quiet afternoon tea"!


  1. What a lovely teacup and saucer...I am always amazed at all the beautiful china that's available, vintage and new. It is wonderful to be able to have such a lovely set to enjoy a soothing cup of tea.

  2. Dear Lady Estelle,

    February and most of March have simply been a blur. I love that last tea cup set. The pinks are gorgeous.

    If you know of sny tea events for April I am longing for a road trip!
