Lovin' Those Teacup Blues...

*

*
Hello my friends...I hope that you're having a marvelous Monday!
*
Today I am joining in with the "Blue Monday" and "Mosaic Monday" parties. You will find the credits for these lovely parties at the end of my post!
*
Ohhh my...it seems that I am always running behind! Today I wanted to show you another one of my "After Christmas Sale" treasure finds. Yes...I'm just now getting around to taking a few photos and posting these little pretties! I hope that you enjoy!!!

Lovin' Those Teacup Blues...

*
I found these pretty teacups and saucers at Tender Heart Treasures during their "after Christmas sale". I had a two-fold reason for purchasing these pretty blue and white teacups...1) I really do need teacups! 2) I have nothing...absolutely nothing...blue! Well...they seemed like great reasons...don't you think? Hehe!
*
There were four different patterns available. I just looked at the Tender Heart Treasures online website in hopes of telling you the names of each pattern, however...they were no longer available! I will include the website address for this sweet little shop...they have some really pretty things over there and are very reasonably priced!

Teacup #1

*

*
I just love the sweet bird and beautiful flowers on this teacup! It reminds me of Spring. Ahhh...Spring!!!
*
For the photos, I am using a beautiful lacy metal charger plate that was a gift from my dearest friend, Gloria (Happy To Be). Gloria, I have already gotten "miles of use" out of these sweet charger plates...I just love them!!! Thank you again, my sweet friend! The white napkins, with the gorgeous lace, came from Target...from their Shabby Chic product line. And...once again, we are at the table in my red French Country dining room.

*
Teacup #2

*

*
Oooh...another sweet little bird...he is resting upon a rose! Do you see the little butterfly?
*
*
Teacup #3

*

*
This teacup has a beautiful bouquet of flowers!
*
*
Teacup #4

*

*
More lovely flowers! I love the pattern of the flowers on the saucer! Sooo pretty!!!
*
*
Lovin' Those Teacup Blues...

*
The 10 oz. porcelain teacups come with a porcelain infuser...so sweet for brewing the perfect cup of tea! Here in the photo mosaic, you can see the teacups with their infuser and lid.
*
I did mention that I found these pretties during the "after Christmas sale"...didn't I? They were on sale for $4.95 each. Not too bad!!!
*

Well my sweet friends...are you ready for a cup of tea?

Oh Chari, you did not need excuses to buy these! They are so pretty. I'm glad you told me they were no longer available, or I'd have to be going over there and trying to buy them at full price! Have a great week. laurie

Sonia said...

Chari my friend,

Those cups and saucers are adorable...I have a weakness for blue and white anything! I just love how you have added the napkin and displayed them so beautifully! Anyone would enjoy a cup of tea or coffee at your beautiful table! As always you have the gift of spotting beautiful things!

Have a great week!

Of course I'm ready for a cup of tea, especially in one of those lovely blue and white cups. It's fun that they each have their own look.

xinex said...

The teacups are so pretty, Chari. I love the color and the pattern. I also like how they have lids on them...Christine

Troy said...

I am so jealous. I looked everywhere for blue and white teacups for Diann for Christmas. I got her a teapot, sugar bowl and creamer, and a tray to put them on, but the only tea cups I could find were either:

A) At Antique dealers who wanted an arm and a leg for them, or

B) At mass merchandised chain home decor stores who wanted an arm and a leg.

The cups and saucers would have cost more than the rest of it put together, so she got a cupless set.

These are exactly what I was looking for. Maybe I can find her some by next Christmas...

Allie and Pattie said...

So pretty! And a beautiful shade of blue! I just love finding deals like that
xoxo Pattie

Audra said...

These are simply divine! I love that they have their own lids! What a fabulous find, spectacular table scape.

gengen said...

Oh Ms. Chari....I would have fallen for these pretty cups, too! They go beautifully with your delicate new teapot, which I also saw & passed up ~kick-kick~ phooey!
Very, very pretty setting & I know we will be seeing these again in the future. :D

fondly,

Your teacups are beautiful, Chari! I've never seen teacups with the infusers built in - teapots, yes, but teacups, no. Really a neat idea! I like the chargers too - such a neat design. The napkins are really pretty - sounds like Target has a nice line - I will have to check it out sometime.
Thanks for all the nice comments you've left me. You make me smile!
Blessings to you - Beth

Sherry said...
