Teacup Thursday #30

I always give a full moon report to my Tasha Tudor group every month and this October moon is called The Hunter's Moon which was actually full on Tuesday night. It's very appropriate as my husband Jim received a gift in the mail from his friend Frank in Illinois...a hunting license. He invited him to come back to Illinois to hunt on his farm in November. Jim was so thrilled and surprised.
So, I decided to feature a fall cup that has a hunter on it-perfect-for Miss Spencer's Teacup Thursday.
I've had this cup and saucer for years and just found it again. It's made by Royal Albert and is called

Hunting in Canada. It has two ducks in the inner cup. I always like an image inside the cup!
I made this little quilt and wanted to use it with the moon theme here. It hangs over a vintage oak primary school chair.
We have been enjoying the last of the season's wonderful tomatoes~the small ones from our garden and the very last cucumber. The large ones are from our favorite Italian veggie stand. Bacon and tomato sandwiches tomorrow night! I also tried a delicious baked apple dish from my dear friend Wilhelmina.

I won this darling SPRING embroidery pattern from sweet Fay at Simply.....I'm so excited as I love to do embroidery work and won't this be a fun project to work on during the winter months. Humm...maybe a little quilt or wall hanging!  I have her blog listed in my favorites on the right hand side of my blog, pop on over to her blog and look at her darling patterns and see some of her finished projects. THANK YOU so much Fay....I am thrilled to be the winner of your give-a-way!

What an interesting cup! Sort of like a little work of art to just be displayed rather than actually drink from it. A nice fall scene, indeed.

Hello Linda,
What a unique teacup. I've never seen one like it before. Being a Canadian, I like the name of it too. There will be a lot of hunting going on in this country beginning tomorrow. Your tomatoes look delicious! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

I love the names of the full moon! So much fun - adore watching - it has been behind clouds these past few nights - I think I may be able to see it tonight!
Love the teacup and saucer - quite unique! Your embroidery piece will be a great occupation for the winter months!

A very fun post here all about fall and that leaping deer is really lovely!

I have to chime in and say that never in my life have I seen a tea cup like that! So manly! Very fitting for the time of year! Congrats on the win! It's perfect for you!

Linda said...

You have some of the most unusual tea cups I have ever seen. A great collection. I gave up on my garden it just didn't do anything this year. That's two bad years in a row so maybe next year.

Dear Linda...

Your blog is very lovely, too.

Thank you so much for coming over to visit me! I love Tasha Tudor, too, and, of course, Dr. Zhivago is one of my absolute favorite movies. We have many kindred spirit similar interests!

I think you Followed my blog to, right, if I am not mistaken? If you did, thank you so much. If not, thanks for the visit. Loved having you stop by and comment, too. Susan
