Teacup Thursday #70

Time for tea and Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday. I'm still enjoying thoughts of Tasha Tudor Day which was so much fun. I so loved using all of my Carlton Ware items and it was fun to have my collection all together to help me celebrate a special day.

The cup and saucer I'm sharing today is really interesting. Jim found it for me at an estate sale for $2 and it's just beautiful. It's marked Silesia on the cup and Germany on the saucer with the same company mark. It is a matched pair. The country of Silesia has quite a confusing history...boarders changed and the country changed hands involving Poland, Germany and The Republic of Czechoslovakia.

The roses are just delightful and I love the different design and colors of the teacup. A tiny rose bud graces the inside of the cup! I have a plate from Germany that goes well with the cup and saucer.

The little book in the background is called "My Ladye's At Home Booke" and states "That my Ladye Faire may register her at homes and other engagements." It was given to Jessie Vivian Underwood from Ruby Ruth Selleck and is dated 1900 and 1902 on some of the pages that have been filled in.
It's from a very small town in Central Oregon-Boyd. I have actually been there. It really a charming little book.

Thank you to all my friends for prayers for my BIL Marcos. He has been moved out of ICU to a rehab floor for his long journey to recovery. He has no movement on his right side right now, cannot speak and cannot swallow. He is being fed through tubby tubes. My sister is doing well under the circumstances. Continued prayer is so appreciated. Things will never be the same for this family.

Hi Linda,
What a pretty cup! Love the colour! I'm so glad to hear your BIL has been moved out of ICU. God bless him and his family!

I enjoyed your Tasha Tudor tea too. I was going to do a Tasha Tea this year but I have a lot on my plate right now with my mother so I couldn't spend the time getting it ready.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Dear Linda,

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'll be praying for your brother-in-law's recuperation, and for your sister to have the strength to go forward, one day at a time.

The teacup and saucer are simply lovely; I've never seen anything like them! And I love "My Ladye's Booke;" somehow having writing from the past makes me feel like I knew the person.
