Tealicious!

Mira from Belle Blanc is hosting an "Action Give Away"...




"Show me your favorite teacup" she says, ever so blithely...





you can try to narrow it down...




but how do you choose?





Dainty...delicate...pink?




Eenie, meenie, miney, mo...
Yeesh!



But if it came down to which cup I would want to sip salt water from if I was stranded on a desert island, I'd have to pick this one...look at the one perfect rose bud inside...




...these rose are not only gorgeous, they are also that absolutely magically perfect shade of pink!




And the hint of green and gilding are just dreamy. **sigh**



Be sure to pop over and visit Chari for more Sunday Favorites






Hurry! Post your favorite teacup!!! Mira will be choosing the winner March 2nd!

  5. They are all beautiful! My mom and grandma had loads of these and I never cared for them when I was younger. How I wish I now could get my hands on some of my grandma's cups! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Sadly, I don't have any teacups...been afraid to start collecting them since I'm a terrible dishaholic! I may have to give in, though...these are beautiful! I think I could even drink that yucky salt water from the darling rose teacup...and it would most certainly taste like nectar! ;-)

  14. M, I asked very blithely and never thought that so many of you would answer :) My goodness, your cups are all so beautiful, no wonder you had a hard decision, now it's my turn and I will have to make my decision.. I can tell you this will be even much harder, thank you so much for participating, hugs Mira!

  16. Wow! Your tea cup collection is absolutely lovely! I love each one!
    I too collect tea cups, in fact, on my blog (and Martha's) next week we are beginning Tea Cup Tuesday, where we are going to showcase one of our tea cups, with it's history, story, fav tea or drink or even a poem (participants choice).
    I found your blog by random blog hopping! What a coincidence that you were showing your tea cups!
    You have a delightful blog, I will be back for another visit soon.
