February 2nd-Teacup Thursday #44

I chose this Valentine for my blog today because I've been on this Queen Victoria kick. If you read my blog a few days ago, I commented on the book I am reading about Queen Victoria and her daughters.
A few weeks ago at the antique show I bought a beautiful Queen Victoria cup and saucer with some of my Christmas money. I was soooo excited! I have lots of queen "stuff" but I didn't have a Queen Victoria teacup. So here it is. I was going to save it for May, but just couldn't wait. I love it.

The teacup commemorates the Queen's Diamond Jubilee of 1897 and was made by Longton Porcelain Company.
Thanks Miss Spenser for hosting our Teacup Thursday again this year.

I'm working on my Valentines for my Tasha Tudor exchange. I don't want to give anything away, so this is all you get to see of my project. Pretty papers and lots of ribbon. Are you making Valentine cards this year?

Wow! That teacup is wonderful, Linda! A real treasure to be sure. Cute Valentine card too.

These have got to be my favorite yet. I love both of them. The queen one must be worth a lot. I have a big thick book about her that I haven't read yet, but I've seen several movies about her and read a children's book about her. I've read a lot more about Queen Elizabeth. I love the WW11 era, but just love anything British.
