Tea Cups and Violets



Tea cups, demitasse, cups and saucers in all sizes are treasures I love
to hunt for and to collect.





I found this darling cup and saucer at one of my favorite antique shops
the other day and since it was very inexpensive and I loved it ~
I could not pass it up.



Then I found this adorable miniature African Violet at my local
co-op and I thought ~ hmm, maybe it will fit inside the little cup and
saucer I just bought.  Well it does and I love the two together!

Bentley ~ this is the first week of school.  You will be very busy
greeting all the kids as they walk by our cottage on their way
to school!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  10. Your teacups are so pretty. The one with the miniature African Violet is perfect. Your pretty teacups reminded me that I have some packed away. I should look for them.
