Hello my friends!
*
Welcome to the 109th run of "Sunday Favorites"
*
I hope that you're having a wonderful weekend!  It has been a busy, busy summer thus far!  My sister and brother-in-law from Texas have been here visiting and just left a few days ago.  We had a wonderful visit and it was nice being able to catch up on family news!  I do apologize for missing the Sunday Favorites party last weekend but sometimes blogging just needs to be "put on hold" while we live life!  Don't you agree?
*
Today for Sunday Favorites, I thought I would share one of my "favorite" posts called "Lovin' Those Teacup Blues"...originally posted on February 28, 2010.  I hope that you enjoy!  I'm looking forward to seeing your Sunday Favorites posts this week and visiting with you, my friends!  You can sign up for the party at the end of this post!
* 
Have a super Sunday!

"Lovin' Those Teacup Blues"
*
*
*Hello my friends...I hope that you're having a marvelous Monday!
*
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?

***Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria***
*
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
*
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!
*
Thank you!!!

Hi Chari,

Thanks for hosting today. I love the idea that each cup and saucer set has a different pattern, but on first glance they all look the same. My favorite thing of this tablescape though, is the beautiful white teapot!

I'm in love with your blue and white cups and saucers, dear Chari!! Each one is too gorgeous! Thanks for hosting and I'm so glad you had a great visit with your sis and hubby!
Happy Sunday. Love. FABBY

Your table looks amazing Chari, but I would have to say my fave is cup #1 because I love birdies so much!
So pretty and what a great price!

The cups are so nice. Now that you have mentioned it... I don't have a thing that is blue...now I have a reason to look at blue dishes. I like your table setting. Thanks Trish

Sue said...

Chari, Seeing your beautiful blue/white teacups inspired me to re-post my own budding collection of blues. I am so taken with transferware and stoneware in this combination. Love the first pattern that you showed- little birds are always so sweet. Love where you placed your teapot, too! So happy to link up today... I have been long absent.... hugs, Sue

Love those teacups. They are so perfect for summer. They'd look beautiful combined with touches of yellow too. I too have barely any blue in my home but have been adding some to my beach room and an upstairs bath. Most of my colors are warm--reds, yellows, mustards and sage. I needed some cool colors in at least one room.

Thank you for sharing, Chari. Enjoy your day.
