Teacup Thursday #18

"Come and share a pot of tea, My home is warm and my friendship's free."
Emilie Barnes

Tea Time and Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday! Can it really be Thursday already? I am amazed at how quickly the weeks fly by.
This is another Royal Grafton teacup. The markings says it's from 1950+ so it's a bit older than the teacup I featured last week from Grafton. I like the simple green color and the design. It's just a pretty cup begging to hold a spot of tea.
The doll seemed to go with the colors of the cup and mid July summer, so I decided to show this little one now. I found it at an Expo show when LaVonne was out to visit me last fall. The head is metal and worn and loved. I just think it's charming and different from my other dolls.
The rain is expected to return today. I feel like I should be grateful when I see the weather forecast across the USA-hot hot hot! It would be nice to have a bit more sun. I so need to get out in my flower garden and do some weeding.

Thank you for visitng my blog! Your blog is lovely...I will send you some heat, although right now we are in the 80's and not so miserable as others. However, our heat lasts until November. Your doll is sweet. I rarely see green teacups, so thanks for sharing.
