Teacup Thursday #15

Here it is the last Thursday of June~there have been 5 Thursdays this month. I'm featuring one more rose teacup for this month. I found this cup and saucer at an estate sale this past weekend along with the pretty plate. Our girls talked us into going estate saling again and it was a fun adventure again.
I'm not sure about the markings on this cup and hope one of you ladies will be able to share some information with me. It's marked TBC Bone China England. I've never seen the mark before and have no idea what company made it or when.
I'm showing a close up of a linen doily that I found a few weeks ago. It's done with silk embroidery thread...such amazing work! I used to collect this type when we were first married, but they're a bit spendy now. I get excited when I find a piece I can afford.
I wish I could say I won the pink rose ribbon...alas, another find!
The fresh flowers are from Len and Gloria's wedding on Saturday. It was at a local park and very sweet, casual and cozy....just a few friends and family. We felt honored to be invited. They are off to Hawaii for a honeymoon. We wish them many years of happiness together!

My post is so late...due to problems with Blogger. I had everything ready to go and then it it just stopped in the middle of my post. I couldn't get back on for anything. I hope I really get to post this message when I start hitting buttons!

Good morning Linda,
Your teacup is very pretty; nice shape and I love the handle! The plate is gorgeous! Do you know the name of the pattern? It reminds me of Old Country Roses only with pink roses instead of red. Thanks for your visit and have a beautiful weekend.
