Teacup Thursday #47 and the Doll Show


I was looking over my blogs from last year as I couldn't remember when I joined Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. It's coming up to a year in March. Today is my #47 post. It's a pretty burgundy color and a simple design with a lovely handle.



The cup and saucer are made by the Spencer Stevenson company and it was made in England. One of the reasons I chose it was because the color goes with my new peg doll that I found at the doll show last Saturday. She's quite lovely and I love the colors in her dress. She's has a lighter frame and quite a pensive look on her face. I love peg dolls.




I wanted to share these other items I recently found. These little children's gloves came from Paris...so very sweet.


I found this little autograph book from 1920 for $1.00! It's from Australia and so charming.



I just couldn't leave this sweet little rack behind. I think I'm going to hang some vintage lace on it in my tea room. My youngest daughter always calls me mama and I just love it. Maybe she'll have this someday.


Thank you Donna and Spenser for hosting another Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. Our last Thursday in February. Will March come in as a lion or a lamb?

Lovely teacup, and you are right that it matches the red in your doll's costume. Lovely things to treasure. Happy TT!

The doll looks like the ones they used to sell at the House of Seven Gables in Salem, MA years ago in their gift shop.
