♣"How sweetly lies old Ireland
Emerald green beyond the foam,
Awakening sweet memories,
Calling the heart back home."♣
I couldn't resist showing an Irish tea cup today as Teacup Thursday falls on St. Patrick's Day!
I have a nice collection of Irish cup and saucers so it was difficult to choose one. I have two more Teacup Thursdays to feature a couple more, so I decided to show this one today. It says Souvenir of Ireland on it and shows a lady spinning. It's stamped Royal Tara Fine Bone China Ireland on the bottom of the cup and the saucer.
I'm anxious to see what others are sharing today. Don't forget to check Miss Spenser's Special-Teas blog. Thanks for starting this Donna and Spenser. I love so forward to Teacup Thursday.
