Tea Time Thursday #1

Miss Spenser has decided to end her Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursdays after three years. I am sad but totally understand that Spenser and her mother Donna are so busy running their tea shoppe and their Bed and Breakfast. I really enjoyed featuring a teacup each week and looked forward to seeing what other tea lovers had to share each week. I also met a lot of great bloggers and many have become friends!

So, I had to make a decision about what to do with Miss Spenser gone. I have decided to continue posting on Thursdays, but will change the subject just a bit. I will blog about TEA TIME items and things~teacups, teapots, books, magazines, dolly tea things, tea shoppes, tea, holiday teas, anything related to tea. I shall name it TEA TIME THURSDAYS.

My cup and saucer today is made by Noritake China of Japan. It's such a sweet floral pattern and a bargain that Jim found for me at an estate sale for $1.00.  My mother's china was made by Noritake.

I always get excited about Valentine's Day about this time in January. I guess I need something to look forward to! I love this sweet little handpainted heart. The spoon was a gift from my friend Kristen when she came to visit in December. Isn't it pretty?

I actually bought the other heart when Kristen was here in Oregon for a visit. I found it at the antique mall in Troutdale when we went shopping. I think they look sweet together.

This little rhinestone heart pin is something I found last weekend for my Etsy shoppe, unless I decide I can't part with it.

This little mug is another estate find that I think goes well with the other sweet items today.

So, I will keep having fun on Thursdays with my Tea Time Thursdays. I hope you will visit my blog and continue to share my fun. I think I need to put together a GIVEAWAY for Valentine's!

So sad to see Miss Spencer close up Blog party shop! However - I'm glad you're still posting. Hope you stay connected with some of the other teatimes that keep their links open. See you there for a cuppa!
