Teacup Thursday #25

I thought I'd be featuring a fall teacup today for Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday, but our summer has come on full blast and it's hard to be thinking of autumn when the temperature is 90 some outside!
So, I decided to show you a wonderful sweet "pink" Paragon cup and saucer that I found at an estate sale a few weeks ago for $3 .50. It's a very soft and pale pink and I love the shape of the cup.

I was sorting through some magazines and I found this quilting book~Tea Pary Time by Nancy Martin. A perfect name! I had forgotten how wonderful this little book is and I think I need to make something from it!

I received a package the other day from my very dear friend LaVonne in Montana. She sent this most wonderful plate as a belated anniversary gift. She found it at a sale while we were on our trip. It's German and just what I have gotten into lately. It's just so pretty and don't you just love the handles? Thanks again LaVonne.

I also wanted to congratulate Donna and Spenser on the wonderful article about their tea room in Tea Time magazine. I know some of our group mentioned it last week, but I finally got a copy and it is such a nice story. I love the recipes in the magazine-the issue has some lovely fall tea ideas. I'll be keeping this copy. Donna and Spenser have been working so hard and need a big pat on the back! Keep up the good work my friends.

#25? How can that be? WOW! Time sure is flying. So that means you have at least 25 tea cups, am I correct? Oh Linda Lou! :-)
I love the little quilt the plate is on. Perfect back drop.
And so excited for Donna and Spenser and the whole family! What an honor!
Great hearing your voice today! Just what I needed!

Hi Linda,
What a pretty teacup! The colour and the shape are lovely. I always like a little bouquet inside too and yours has that as well. Wonderful find. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.

Mrs. Spencer was in Tea Time Magazine!Oh,I hope it's still in the stores.I didn't renew my subscription-Bohoo.I was trying to help my husband budget this month.Shoot and I was just trying to be helpful.As you and others can see I ran out of room for more teacups and I showed most all of them over the year I've been blogging.I still love tea time just as much though.A couple of post ago I showed one I painted-that was fun.Denise

What a beautiful tea cup! I love Paragon, and yours is so pretty sitting high on it's pedestal. You certainly got a real bargain there!
The German plate is gorgeous too, what a lovely gift from your friend.

What a beautiful pink teacup!! (and thanks for the nice welcome!)
Yes, it's still summer here too, but at least it's cooler than the 100+ temps we had for weeks!
