Teacup #64 and Cupcakes

It seems that I have been on the receiving end of many sweet and kind gifts this year! After Christine Crocker made my wonderful doll, she sent me this thank you! It's a very beautiful-and pink-teacup that has been in their family. She knows I love teacups and she wanted me to have it and enjoy it with my teatime friends. I just love the gold trim and the lovely flowers in the center. It is my wish that Christine will be able to come to tea in my tearoom someday.

The cup is marked Stanley Bone China Made in England. I will cherish it always and I will think of Christine every time I have a cuppa.

I've been helping Jim get ready for his Expo Antique and Collectable show this weekend, so I was just unwinding on the computer this evening. I came across the most yummy and delightful cupcakes from
A bakery called the Bakery Parlour in England. Wouldn't these be stunning at your next tea?

This is my very favorite it, love it, love it!! You can match your cupcake to your dishes.

The bakery is owned by Zoe Clark. I looked on Amazon and she has several books out. I'm thinking fo purchasing the cup cake one!

Thanks to Miss Spenser for hosting our Teacup Thursday. Can't wait to see what others are sharing today! Hope you are enjoying summer. I know we have some new members that I haven't met yet.

Can I just say - YUM!!! These cupcakes are beautiful works of art. A crime to actually eat them, I daresay - but, then, the best of their art may be in the biting into them!

Sweet teacup gift. And, I would love some tearoom time with you, too!
