I Cheat Because I Care!



Yep!
Cheater! Cheater! Pumpkin Eater!
These are not really teacups...per se...
they are actually punch cups...
but this is AMERICA, dadgumit {cue patriotic theme music
of your choosing} and if I want to use a punch cup as a teacup
well then that is just exactly what I will do!

Man alive! I'm all fired up now...I want to go vote or put a flag
on the moon, or something!




But, truly, I cheat because I love...because I care...




How could I forgive myself if I didn't share these adorable pink milk glass
pretties?
{I have a baaaaaad thing for pink milk glass...baaaaaad...}





See! Look at that little cup 'o LOVE just for you!





As you saw, there are no maker's markings on the bottom of the cup
but I happen to know that these were made by the Jeannette Glass Co.
And since there are no saucers, I once again, paired them with my
white glass American Beauty saucers...because...can you really go
wrong with pink & white?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WE'D BE SO PLEASED IF YOU'D JOIN IN THIS WEEKS GIVE AWAY !!

Be sure to stop by Cindy's for more SHOW & TELL FRIDAY !

And then hurry on over to MARTHA & TERRI'S for more Tea Cup Tuesday!






And if you love me too...you'll get me this whole set...then I won't have to
pretend that punch cups are teacups...and all will be right with the world! ;}

  2. You are so funny! Why can't a punch cup be used as a tea cup. There are punch recipes that use tea. Sounds good to me .. especially if the cup is pink and as pretty as these! Happy Tea Day!

  9. Well, I was going to wonder how you knew they were punch cups instead of tea cups, but you got the bowl and all. Lovely set, and I wouldn't mind what you choose to serve in those, I'd accept with a big 'Thank you!'

  13. I'll keep my eye open for that set... in the meantime you go right ahead and call them teacups. I have a carnival glass punch set and I sometimes use the punch cups (only have 4) for tealight holders. Looks amazing.
    Keep that imagination going, I love it!!

    Hugs, Sherry

  18. Just adorable, pink punch set. There was a time when every respectable household had the makings for a "shower" or open house and that punch set was a requirement. Love the pink!
