Tea On Tuesday

Over the weekend my friend Jen took me to the Skaneateles Antique Center.  That's a fun place to poke around!

Almost right away I found something for Lindsay.  It is seriously 'her', and as soon as I give it to her, I'll show you here!  Its really neat.

Then I found a few tea cups.

First this delightful one with changing maple leaves and a Canadian flag, named "Canada."  My mother in law is Canadian and I thought it would be a sweet cup to have in her honor.

Then I found this one.  I almost didn't buy this one called "Orange Blossom", but I was really drawn to it.

It's also Royal Albert as you can see, but it's older, the porcelain is thinner.  I love the colors of it, and it was reasonably priced.  But, I argued with myself that I already had picked out a tea cup and was getting the tray for Lindsay.  I knew the other tea cup was 50% off, so it was very inexpensive.....I decided to treat myself to this one too!  When I went to pay, it was 20% off!  I was glad I had decided to get it!  I already know it's going to be a favorite cup of mine!

So I added to my collection this weekend.  I usually get tea things for Mother's Day, but I'm hinting for Annie Sloan paint brushes this year!

I'm joining a few favorite gatherings with this post -

  1. You found some beautiful teacups and I'm glad your brought them home! Happy Tea Day!

  2. These are all so pretty! I'd have to bring them all home as well!

  3. Dear Deanna:
    I love your new teacups which I would think of as a tribute to Canada and Florida! Both great spots and these will be such fun. Thanks for sharing and linking them for all to see.

  4. There's something about the green in the orange blossom one. So glad that you decided yes and that it was also on sale. Nothing like retail therapy sometimes. Are you preparing for the annual Mother's Day Tea?

  5. You would have regretted not buying the orange blossom teacup. So pretty--glad you got it. I sometimes pass up things and then wish later I had gotten them. Blessings, Sharon D.

  6. Nice finds, Deanna! Naturally, my favourite is the Canada teacup since I live north of the border!

  7. Mrs. Rabe, did you get to vote today in the PA Primary??? Who did you vote for?

  8. I am SO glad you bought them both Deanna....I could not have resisted! Just gorgeous!!!!

  9. Your teacups are lovely, Deanna. The Canada is one I wouldn't mind finding since I do live here and the Orange blossom is so pretty too. At the moment I am trying to stay away from antique shops because we plan to down-size. I can see why you were struck on Orange Blossom. Both are nice teacups to have in your collection. Thank you for sharing and have a beautiful day.


  10. You can't have enough pretty tea cups can you?

  11. Deanna, great finds! I've never seen either. Would love to find an Orange Blossom trio. I'm all about tea!
