Week One of Teacups for November Posted on November 5, 2019 by Katy Gilmore Share this:LinkedInFacebook Related
Sweet little cups. Maybe you can revive the “friendship cup” tradition and save all of those cute pairs from the thrift store.
Thank you Simone! What is the “friendship cup” tradition? Sounds like something I could like!
What a great idea to draw decorated teacups. I like all those you show in your post. Years ago we stayed at a B&B in Victoria, BC., and they had a different bone china teacup for each guest. I started buying teacups and must have 30, each one of a kind. My husband and I would have tea in the afternoon and depending on the tea, I chose the right patterned and shaped teacup. But since he died I have only used the same one, the others are in a box. I think I’ll get them out after seeing your post.
Oh Vagabonde what a lovely story. I am so very sorry you can no longer have tea each afternoon with your husband, what a good tradition. I hope you will get your cups out! When we lived in Alaska I used to have a Solstice Tea party every year to celebrate the return of light on December 21 – my guests and I got to use all the accumulated and inherited teacups and teapots. And you are right about certain cups for certain teas!
All so lovely! I couldn’t choose a favorite.
Thanks Vicki! And the purchasers so far have agonized over picking (which is fun to see) three or two to live together. Singletons seem easier!
Love all of these. Thanks for posting them. I do miss our December tea party. My collection of tea cups never seems to get used anymore.
Thanks Carol. I do still see them but rarely use them. Thinking about the tea makes me want to do it again!
Love these beautiful teacups and missing our December tea parties too. I still have the teacup picture you gave me hanging in my dining room. Think of you so often!
What a treat to hear from you Shirley! We had such good times with those teas. I loved it when you’d come early and light lots of candles!
This cheerful tea cup collection brings back warm memories of your shows at the Artique . I miss the shows and the Artique. And you. Do you remember the 25th Anniversary tea cups painting you created under unreasonably short notice for my anxious husband, a man desperate for a special gift for which he gave very little thought beforehand.
We gratefully remain friends and admirers, despite the distance of time and place. Thank you, Katy! You area treasure, as is Teacups for an Anniversary.
Oh my gosh what a treat to hear from you Marnie! I’ve been dealing with my moose again lately and thought about you! Thank you for this lovely message – I was so glad to read it! Xo
