Tea Tuesday


My mom surprised me with a small box of "orphaned" cups and saucers last week. (ah...who is it that used that on their blog!!!)

She said..." Don't know what you'll do with these but I'm sure you'll find something. Or else sell them."

This one was in instant favorite for me. It looks like a mug but is very small in size. 

I know this cup is very old. I'm hanging onto this one as is. It will find a home in my lawyers cabinet when I'm not using it.

Stop by Kimmies blog to see my Tea Tuesday friends...

Oooo, I recognized it as Bavarian china right away! SO pretty and yes, a definite old treasure!

I highly doubt I originated the term, "orphan", but I have used the term in my tea posts more than once. heehee

First, thanks for missing me yesterday. I was swamped with people in and out all day. Second, I love the little demitasse cup. It is gorgeous. Third, you are thinking of Nathalie at "An Artist's Legacy" who has the orphaned cups and saucers. Have a glorious Tea Tuesday. I hope it's not too cold and snowy in your part of the world today.

Your little "mug" is so sweet .... And so intricately painted! That is definitely a keeper! Nathalie was the first I think to talk about her orphans, but it is something that is catching on! Your lawyers cabinet is really cool .... I love the glass fronts .... That really cuts down on the dusting I'll bet!

Gorgeous little cup! Lucky you :) Enjoy your T-day.

That cup is definitely a keeper - and Nathalie (Artist's Legacy) collects orphans!!!

Love your lawyer's bookcase - my grandmother had one - and she used to call it a barrister's bookcase/bookshelf. The glass front doors lift up, and slide in- very cool!

What a pretty orphan! I have a favorite orphan that I kept. It's a hand painted Nippon cup... I love Nippon and have a small collection of it.
