New member to my tea cup collection

This is a new find.

A tea lady can never get to many tea cups.
I fell in love with the bowl like saucer.
EMBASSY china is on the bottom of the cup and saucer. Made in Japan.

They have just opened up new Savers Store right in my neighborhood. It is in walking distance. If you do not know of or have a Savers in your town, it is like a Salvation Army Thrift Shop. Great things for a great price.
Well, look what I found on my first visit.

 These two lovely cups are from the "Flowers of the Month Collection". These Royal Albert are in good condition. I only have only 2 of 12, but I love them just the same.

When It Rains, It Pours Goodness!

Today was a gracious day. I just received my Tax Returns which was so greatly need at this point. I was so excited. After receiving the check, my neighbor came with a box in his hand to my door. What could this be?
When it rain, it pours goodness. It was my Tea Cup Trade Package from Jenny's Heart. 
I had been waiting for this for a couple of days, after Jenny told me she had sent it. I was beginning to worry. My package was sent to the wrong house.
My address is 210 and it was sent to 201. I am very lucky I have good honest neighbors. 
It was very well protect in a plastic container. I will remember this style of packing on my next tea cup trade.
It contained much love and care. I want to thank Jenny for all the thought she put into this package.
All wrap tightly with care was this lovely fine china tea cup. I love the soft colors in the pattern.
I also received a travel map of her town in Franklin, Va, a Yankees Candle travel Car spray (Garden Sweet Pea),  travel body powder, two boxes of Russell Stove Chocolates, a Valentine's note pad and a beautiful pink flower scarf that Dollie like to keep warm in.
With all the travel items, I feel I must take a trip to visit my new friend in Franklin, Va.

My Tea Cup Trade With "JENNY"S HEART"!

My tea cup trade partner is a lovely lady named Jenny.
When you get a chance, go and visit her at "JENNY"S HEART"
I spent so much time looking to find that perfect tea cup to buy for her. Then after days of not finding what I wanted, I realized that a trade should be something special of mine, something I treasure, not bought. So, I sent Jenny a cup and sauce from my favorite China Dinner Set.

This set was given to me many years ago from and old friend that has pasted away. It was from his mother. They were from Poland. The pattern is a soft pink and blue floral. It's beautifully trimmed with gold.

It was hard to show you the label on the bottom, but it says Johann Haviland  Bavaria, Germany.

I love the pattern on this china. I have done some research on the company and  it's a good quality china wear.

The tea cup has a charming and elegant style.

I hope she will love this tea cup as much as I enjoyed giving it to her.
She told me she loved dainty things, so I also sent her some antique ladies hankies. You must not send a tea cup with no tea, so I sent her Whole Leaf Organic Tea Sachets.

I want to thank Shanon at Faith Hope And Cherrytea for  this wonderful way to make friends.

About Valentine's Day

About Valentine's Day

February 14th.

Valentine's Day is a celebration of love and lovers. The roots of Valentine's Day goes back to ancient times, when people paid honor to the Roman God of Fertility. This was known as the Feast of Lupercalia, and was celebrated even then on February 14th.

It is a romantic event for lovers and a fun event for kids and family. Many a couple become engaged or wed on this day. For others it is a day to fall in love.


The traditions of Valentine's Day are broad and many. It is a time to exchange cards or small gifts. Chocolates and jewelry are the big hits of this holiday as is romantic dinners.
