Tea Cups and Friends. . . Pink Saturday and Teacup Tuesday

Teacups and friends. . . Have you noticed the similarities between the two? Each one unique, each one different, but both beautiful inside and out. Each one bringing comfort and cheer. Each one becoming more dear with the passing of time. Teacups and friends, today I am truly thankful for both. Thank you for your kind friendship, sweet friends!! "Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." I am participating in Pink Saturday. Please visit our kind hostess, Ms. Beverly, and all the other participants by going here: I am also participating in Teacup Tuesday hosted each week by the very kind, Martha. You can find those participants here: I am also linking with my sweet friend, Sandi, from Rose Chintz Cottage as she hosts a teaparty on Tuesdays, too. You will find her here:

Lynn-Teacupstitches said...

Wow what a sweet group of teacups Vicki! I absolutely love them all . . .. but if I was forced to pic a favorite it would also be the one with the cherub handle! I've never seen one like that and will have to be on the lookout for one!
